Event description

Description

Dinner and Documentary is a free potluck dinner and documentary viewing event that takes place every third Sunday of the month at Secular Hub.

5pm potluck dinner. 6pm Documentary. Discussion and Q&A immediately afterwards.

We are excited to welcome Buntport Theater Company to select the movie and co-host in March. They have picked a documentary that illuminates the creative process that is integral to the work that they do.


Buntport Theater Company is a wee group of theater-making humans based in Denver. We’ve worked together for over 18 years, making new stuff.* We work collaboratively—without ‘official’ writers, directors, designers, janitors. We do all the stuff. Because we love it.

*Our ‘new stuff’ is often based on other people’s stuff. We are not delusional about our place in history. We are ever grateful to the hundreds and hundreds of people who inspire us/that we steal from.

The Five Obstructions: In 1967, experimental filmmaker Jorgen Leth created a striking short film, "The Perfect Human," starring a man and women sitting in a box while a narrator poses questions about their relationship and humanity. Years later, Danish director Lars von Trier made a deal with Leth to remake the film five times, each under a different set of circumstances and with von Trier's strictly prescribed rules. As Leth completes each challenge, von Trier creates ever more elaborate rules for the contest.

The Secular Hub is a humanist community center located in the Five Points Neighborhood of Denver. The Secular Hub is a place to meet secular people for a broad range of activities that encourage learning, critical thinking, altruism, and fellowship. We are a chapter of the American Humanist Association (AHA). www.secularhub.org
