About: Oscar-nominated filmmaker Sam Green and filmmaker/animator Brent Green, while not related, are both known for their singular performances combining cinema, musical accompaniment, and live narration. At this unique event, Brent will tell stories about his family, growing up in rural Pennsylvania, and the woman who sewed a spacesuit for the first dog sent into space. Sam will share tales about Louis Armstrong, the fog in San Francisco, and the last person listed in the San Francisco phone book. This rare collaborative appearance features live foley and soundtracks by musicians Brendan Canty (Fugazi), James Canty (Nation of Ulysses), Becky Foon (Thee Silver Mt. Zion), and Kaye Ryan, as accompaniment to these short cinematic gems.
