The inspirational San Fransisco-based documentarian Sam Green (THE WEATHER UNDERGROUND) has been mak­ing award-winning short doc­u­men­taries since the late 1990s. For one night, he returns to Upstate for this special program.
Films include:
UTOPIA PART 3
: visit Southern China to explore the world’s largest shop­ping mall, which is actu­ally nearly com­pletely empty. lot 63, grave c: an elegy for Mered­ith Hunter, the young man who was killed by Hells Angels at the noto­ri­ous 1969 Alta­mont con­cert. THE FABULOUS STAINS: BEHIND THE MOVIE: the remark­able story of the cult film directed by Lou Adler in 1982. THE UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE: a por­trait of Esperanto, the arti­fi­cial lan­guage that was cre­ated in the late 1800s with the hope of cre­at­ing world peace, and the world­wide move­ment of peo­ple who still speak it.Run­ning through Green’s films is a cel­e­bra­tion of ide­al­ism and the search for mean­ing along with the often humor­ous real­i­ties of human folly. An honor to present, this selection of films is not to be missed.
