Join Adrienne Maree Brown back for this lively conversation inspired by the work of visionary, post-apocalyptic sci-fi author Octavia Butler.
Butler's writing - in 'The Parable' series and other works - inspires and provokes new thinking about how we can bring into being the kind of society that we want, expanding what we might imagine. Butler showed us adaptive, intuitive, shared leadership in practice through her protagonists. This recurrent theme - dubbed "Emergent Strategy"- will be a key focus of the discussion.
The Trylon microcinema and Moon Palace Books present a special screening of Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation at 7pm on Thursday, February 7th at the Riverview Theater.
Chris Strompolos, co-creater of the film, will be attending the screening in person and the new
book Raiders! The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made by Alan Eisenstock will be
available for purchase.
In 1982, best friends Chris Strompolos, 10, and Eric Zala, 11, shared a vision to remake Raiders of the Lost Ark shot-for-shot. using the resources around them. Seven years later, after almost burning down a house and nearly killing Eric, their film became what's been called “The greatest fan film of all time” and has recieved an enormous positive response from all over the world.
Advance tickets are available here and copies of the book Raiders! are available for pre-order to be picked up at the screening. If you can't make the screening and wanted a copy signed by Chris Strompolis let us know. We can ship one to you or hold it at Moon Palace Books for pick-up.
