A Q&A with filmmaker and editor David Zeiff and Jacob Burns Film Center Programming Director Brian Ackerman, will follow screening on Saturday, Oct. 12 at noon.
“It’s a must-see new documentary about a legendary ‘extreme’ skier that you may know nothing about, in a sport you may care nothing about (as I did), but by the end of this thrill-ride of a movie, you sit back and think, Wow, some people are simply cut from different cloth and have a different sense of what life might be, could be, must be,” Ackerman said in a statement.
Also in October the Jacob Burns Film Center will also show an encore broadcast of Othello, from their "NT LIVE" series broadcast from the National Theatre, London, Monday, Oct. 14 at noon.
A screening of Harvest of Empire followed by Q&A with journalist Juan Gonzalez and Executive Director of Neighbors Link, Carola Otero Bracco, will be held on Mon.
