We here at LESS Productions have recently been throwing our all into a 53:30 version of PolyCultures in hopes of being part of PBS' Independent Lens series. We're inserting 2:30 of "value added" on the edges and calling it the 56-minute cut (i.e. the length it'll be if/when it airs). This cut obviously does not have the depth of its predecessor, but the core messages are retained and the flow is much better - it's much more enjoyable, if I do say so myself ;-)
We're going to do the Cleveland premiere of this cut in two simultaneous screenings!
Both will start around 6p on Friday, October 23rd, so please save the date. We're still nailing down some of the details. But here are the basics:
Screening #1: Tremont Farmers Market presents PolyCultures v1.2 at Pilgrim Church in Tremont
Screening #2: Bioneers presents PolyCultures v1.2 in the Dively Auditorium in CSU's Levine College of Urban Affairs in downtown Cleveland
We hope whether you've seen the 100-minute cut or not that you'll be interested in participating in the evolution of this community-integrated project. Check back here in a day or two for full details!
