October Country

Michael Palmieri & Donal Mosher | 2009 | US | 80 mins.

Shot over a year from one Halloween to the next, October Country is a deeply personal, beautifully rendered portrait of an American family struggling for stability while haunted by the ghosts of war, teen pregnancy, foster care, and child abuse. A collaboration between filmmaker Michael Palmieri and photographer and family member Donal Mosher, this vibrant and penetrating documentary examines the forces that unsettle the working poor and the violence that lurks beneath the surface of American life.

“The main strength of October Country is that it respects the individuality of its subjects, observing them with detached compassion and allowing each of them plenty of time to talk.” —A.O. Scott, The New York Times.

FAQs

How will it work?

Bring your ticket (either printed or on your phone) and our team will check your tickets with a contactless check in scanner, respecting social distancing guidelines. Before your arrival, we will ask you to make sure you can answer “no” to all of the CDC’s COVID-19 safety screening questions. Upon arrival we will do a mandatory temperature check, unless you prefer to provide proof of vaccination. Seating will be arranged in pods (up to 4 people) so that you may sit together with your group, but remain socially distanced from those not in your group. Chairs will be provided in groups of two and four. Masks will be required while inside of the venue and while interacting with staff.

Can I bring food and drinks?

No alcoholic beverages are allowed. Feel free to bring snacks and non-alcoholic beverages! Food and drink must be consumed while you are sitting in your designated area.

I’m vaccinated, do I need to wear a mask?

All attendees and staff are required to wear a mask while inside of the venue, as it is still required by the city to wear a mask while attending a public event. You will also be reminded of the mandatory safety measures via email and on screen.

Organizer Rooftop Films

Organizer of Rooftop Films | October Country (with Live Score)

At Rooftop Films we believe film can be so much more than just watching a movie, so we curate unique events that combine great music, quality film, and some of the most beautiful locations that New York has to offer. By thinking beyond the screen, we help to bring communities together and change the way that film, music, art, and ideas interact with the city around us.

 

Rooftop Films’ mission is to engage and inspire diverse communities by showing movies in outdoor locations, supporting the production of new independent films, helping local organizations to produce screenings and events, and renting equipment at low-cost to artists and nonprofits. Rooftop Films is more than a film festival. We are a community. We are a collective collaboration between filmmakers and festivals; between audience members and artists; between venues and neighborhoods. Our goal is to nurture a vibrant independent filmmaking and film-going community not only by exhibiting the work of emerging filmmakers, but also by providing essential support systems for those who otherwise have none.
