the 4th annual Glimmerglass Film days will be November 10-14, 2016
Glimmerglass Film Days presents an exciting long weekend of new narrative films, feature documentaries, and shorts — paired with discussions led by visiting filmmakers, scholars, and experts. Lively parties with local food and drink fuel this weekend of screenings, walks, discussions, and art exhibitions.
Curated by Margaret Parsons, founder and director of the award-winning film program at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., this year's festival explores the concept of resilience in natural and man-made worlds. Films uncover preserving Japanese sake traditions, Babushkas in Chernobyl, a deep look at the links between African Americans and their ancestral pasts, and the founding of Greenpeace. We'll also travel to South America in search of lost shamans, drugs, and cultures, and examine many other struggles closer to home.
Join us as we look through the eyes of cinema — from the perspective of the supernatural, non-humans, and humanity, ancient to contemporary —at the long game of resilience.
