Another friend's film is playing this weekend. Cathryn Davis' documentary Fully Awake: Black Mountain College will have its New York City premiere at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) Friday, Oct. 3 at 6:30pm. It will play again there on Saturday, Oct. 4 at 2pm.
"Fully Awake: Black Mountain College is a documentary film about the experimental college based in North Carolina from 1933-1957 and its enormous influence on community, collaboration, and American modern art."
The film was first started by Cathryn Davis who was later joined by filmmaker Neeley House to help finish the project. All along the crew was made up of volunteers (some friends of ours as well). This volunteer collaboration seemed to have created an intriguing atmosphere of team work and a strong focus on a shared goal.
Needless to say we're very excited to view the result tonight and toast to Cathryn and her team at the after party at Fontana's.
If you want to see the film, make sure you arrive early because past screenings in other towns have sold out.
If you don't live in the New York area or can't make it to either of the screenings, keep an eye on the website www.bmcfullyawake.org for other dates or purchase the DVD.
Next upcoming screening will be at the Guggenheim in Bilbao, Spain.
