Salt Lake City’s Center for Documentary Expression and Art (CDEA), and Engaging the Senses Foundation (ETSF) are delighted to announce two special screenings of the award-winning film The Story of Everything, based on a theater piece written by Emeritus Hawai‘i Poet Laureate and MIT graduate Kealoha, which explores humanity’s rich and diverse explanations for the origins of life. The Story of Everything, produced and directed by ETSF, condenses 13.8 billion years into an hour and 45 minutes of various cultural elements and scientific disciplines to approach the questions that has challenged humans from the very beginning: “Where do we come from?” and even more importantly, “Where are we going”?
The first screening will be in SLC at The Salt Lake City Public Library’s Marmalade Branch from 1:00pm-3:30pm on June 22nd, and will include a Q&A with Kealoha.
The second showing will be at the Salt Lake Community College (SLCC), South Campus, The Screening Room, from 7:00pm-9:30pm, also to include a Q&A with Kealoha.
CDEA is sponsoring the screenings of The Story of Everything as well as an ongoing guest teaching residency by Kealoha as part of its Artists/Scholars-in-Residence program, which explores urgent and pressing contemporary issues through the medium of documentary film and video.
