Ithaca Premiere With filmmaker Brett Story in person
2019 > USA > Directed by Brett Story
Filmed over one month in New York City and its outer boroughs in 2017, the film offers a mirror onto a society on the verge of catastrophe, registering the anxieties, distractions, and survival strategies that preoccupy ordinary lives. Ranked the #3 best documentary of 2019 by Rolling Stone magazine, that praised it as "a first-rate city symphony... a hodgepodge portrait of a center that can't hold, in which everything from the effects of climate change to economic disparity to our current uncivil discourse is filtered through a collective sense of anxiety. It's somehow life-affirming and apocalyptic at the same time". Cosponsored with the CCA. More at
