Paradise Place: Movie and Dessert
Crow’s Nest Preserve | Sun, June 04, 2017, 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Human stories take place on remarkably fleeting landscapes. The movie Paradise (Lydia Moyer, 2015) showcases several abandoned sites in the Americas and the all-too-real impacts of change on human communities. Produced over the course of eight years, the film focuses on seven stories and the people whose lives were irrevocably impacted by vanished landscapes. Narratives include Wounded Knee in South Dakota; Centralia, a mining town in Pennsylvania; and the site of Jonestown in Guyana.
Lydia Moyer, the film’s producer, will join us for the screening and guide a post-viewing discussion. Disclaimer: While the film has no violent or graphic footage, it does cover some uncomfortable topics.
Please bring a potluck dessert to share and enjoy during the evening.
