Synopsis:

Deborah Stratman’s 2008 documentary considers the effect of technology on American history and the idea of freedom. The film is framed by the experiences of Colonel William Rankin, who was forced to eject from his fighter jet in 1959 only to be trapped in the whirling winds of a massive thunderstorm. 52 min. — Chicago Reader

Hope to see you there. Bring your dearest friends (no enemies) and be sure to have your avant-garde-doc-brain inserted and ready. Also playing is Chris Marker’s Three Cheers for the Whale
