CELEBRATING A PACEDOCS PREMIERE

About this Event

Join PaceDocs at the Jacob Burns Film Center (405 Manville Road, Pleasantville, NY 10570) for a reception scheduled immediately prior to the world premiere screening of their latest documentary film, Hawaii: Living on the Edge in Paradise? Light refreshments will be served, and one guest will be chosen at random to win a Hawaiian gift basket.

NOTE: This RSVP is only to attend the reception. To attend the film screening, you must purchase a ticket on the Jacob Burn Film Center website, or in-person at the box office.

ABOUT THE FILM

During the summer of 2018, hundreds of earthquakes shook the summit of Kīlauea, sparking the volcano’s largest eruption in 200 years. To some it was a disaster. To others, it was the goddess Pele’s way of creating new 'āina (land). Students in Pace University’s award-winning Media, Communications, and Visual Arts travel documentary production course (PaceDocs), led by Maria Luskay, EdD, spent six days living in its shadow and gathering stories of faith, resilience, and unification. What they learned from the people of Hawaii is a lesson in the true spirit of Aloha.

Film total running time: 35 minutes.

Does this Eventbrite RSVP ticket grant me access to the screening ?

No. To gain access to the theater for the documentary screening, you must purchase a ticket through the Jacob Burns Film Center. Tickets are available online or in-person at the box office.

What are the transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The Jacob Burns Film Center is conveniently located in downtown Pleasantville. For guests taking public transportation, it's within two blocks of the Pleasantville stop on the Metro-North Harlem Line, and for currently registered students, faculty and staff, it's easily accessible from all Pace University campuses via Intercampus Shuttle. For guests who will be driving, there are seven municipal parking lots within four blocks of the Jacob Burns Film Center. The two lots labeled “Metered” are available throughout the day, and the others are commuter-permit only until 3 pm. Additionally, metered street parking is also available throughout the village. We also suggest parking at Pace University Pleasantville campus, and taking the shuttle over to town.
