October Country (with Live Score)

Monday, Jul 19, 2021 at 7:30 pm

Kick-off event for First Look 20/21 featuring a special outdoor screening accompanied by the world premiere of a live score by Michael Palmieri and Donal Mosher.

Dirs. Michael Palmieri, Donal Mosher. 2009, 80 mins. Shot over a year from one Halloween to the next, October Country is a deeply personal, beautifully rendered portrait of an American family struggling for stability while haunted by the ghosts of war, teen pregnancy, foster care, and child abuse. A collaboration between filmmaker Michael Palmieri and photographer and family member Donal Mosher, this vibrant and penetrating documentary examines the forces that unsettle the working poor and the violence that lurks beneath the surface of American life.
