Rooftop Films Presents: October Country (with Live Score)

July 19th , 7:45pm 10:45pm

As part of Rooftop Films’s 25th Summer Series, gather amid the open air and lush greenery of the Cemetery for a screening of October Country, a film by Michael Palmieri and Donal Mosher, with a world premiere live score. 

Shot over a year from one Halloween to the next, October Country is a deeply personal, beautifully rendered portrait of an American family struggling for stability while haunted by the ghosts of war, teen pregnancy, foster care, and child abuse. A collaboration between filmmaker Michael Palmieri and photographer and family member Donal Mosher, this vibrant and penetrating documentary examines the forces that unsettle the working poor and the violence that lurks beneath the surface of American life.
