Sam Green and Dave Cerf: Utopia in Four Movements
LIVE MUSIC BY THE QUAVERS
Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Sam Green (The Weather Underground) and sound artist Dave Cerf create a "live documentary" which combines the collective experience of cinema and the intimate immediacy of live performance. Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival 2010, Green narrates a poetic, entertaining, and pognant original text that accompanies his stunning cinematic collage of projected vignettes, stills, and moving images. Green will be joined on stage by Brooklyn-based band The Quavers, who perform while Cerf weaves together the soundtrack. Together, they sift through a 20th-century history of bold and giddy idealistic dreams, searching for a way to build a vision of the future based on humankind's noblest impulses.
