From director Ian Cheney and executive producer Werner Herzog, The Arc of Oblivion is an unexpectedly playful search for an answer to a deeply existential question: In a universe that erases its tracks, why are we so hellbent on leaving a trace?  Set against the backdrop of the filmmaker’s quixotic quest to build an ark in a field in Maine, the film heads far afield — to salt mines in the Alps, fjords in the Arctic, and ancient libraries in the Sahara — to illuminate the strange world of archives, record-keeping, and memory. (Watch trailer here.)

By-invitation only. RSVPs are required, and space is limited.

Doors at 6pm.

Concessions will be available during the film, and drinks and light bites will be served during the post-screening reception.
