About This Event

2021 > USA > Directed by A. Madsen Minax \ \"This rural Michigan-set documentary is an evocative, deeply felt almost essay-like work that tells the story of the director\'s rural hometown, a city seemingly destroyed by the ever-present opioid crisis. Driven by engrossing voice over, this profoundly personal work of empathy finds the director mining his hometown\'s history of drug addiction, economic regression and religious extremism, all while keeping a keen eye on his own family through the enveloping use of home movies....one of the great slice of life portraits of the American rural class in years. A titanic work.\" (Joshua Brunsting, Criterion) Filmmaker and Ithaca College film professor Mitch McCabe will moderate the post-screening Zoom discussion. \ Cosponsored with LGBT Studies & the LGBT Resource Center.
