Wednesday, March 20, 2013 from 9:15 PM to 11:15 PM
Ann Arbor, MI
A single-shot documentary, directed by Libbie Cohn and J.P. Sniadecki (co-director of Foreign Parts), People’s Park immerses viewers in an unbroken journey through a famous urban park in Chengdu, Sichuan Province. The film explores the dozens of moods, rhythms and pockets of performance coexisting in tight proximity within the park’s prismatic social space, capturing waltzing couples, mighty sycamores, karaoke singers, and buzzing cicadas. Preceded by a live audio performance by sound artist and composer Ernst Karel, who constructed the rich soundtrack for People’s Park.
