Filmmaker Sam Green presents a live work-in-progress screening of his new film Utopia in Four Movements. The film explores the battered state of the utopian impulse at the dawn of the 21st century through several seemingly unrelated vignettes — including a history of Esperanto, a portrait of an exiled American radical, and a meditation on the world’s largest shopping mall. Green’s presentation utilizes PowerPoint and is accompanied by a live score by musician Dave Cerf.

Sam Green is acclaimed director of the documentaries The Weather Underground and Rainbow Man/John 3:16.
