More info and tickets:

THE ARC OF OBLIVION explores a quirk of humankind: in a universe that erases its tracks, we humans are hellbent on leaving a trace. Set against the backdrop of the filmmaker’s quixotic quest to build an ark in a field in Maine, the film heads far afield — to salt mines in the Alps, fjords in the Arctic, and ancient libraries in the Sahara — to illuminate the strange world of archives, record-keeping, and memory. Playfully weaving stop-motion animation, spellbinding cinematography and fascinating interviews from the director’s inner circle and experts in the fields of science, culture and art — including documentarians Werner Herzog and Kirsten Johnson — THE ARC OF OBLIVION reveals how nature inspires the human drive behind filmmaking.

Tickets are only $5! (note this doesn’t cover all of our costs, so please donate if you can!)
