PEFF : The Rhythm of Rutledge

PEFF : The Rhythm of Rutledge
Jan 27 2013 - 11:00am - 12:00pm
Community Room

Rutledge, Mo., is a town of 100 residents, one general store, zero stoplights and thousands of acres of corn and soy. This rural landscape is also home to three ‘intentional communities’ that seek healthier ways of treating the land and one another. An experiment in observational cinema, “The Rhythm of Rutledge” immerses the audience into the environments of these communities, allowing minimal dialog to echo through long sections of observation, weaving ideology with the beauty of hands-on work with the land.

Directed and produced by the Last Volunteer.
The filmmakers and Alyson Ewald, a co-founder of Red Earth Farms, the 6-year-old homesteading community in Missouri, will participate in a post-screening Q&A.
