GRAVITY WAS EVERYWHERE BACK THEN
Brent Green | USA 2010 | 75min.

Wednesday May 4th - 8:00pm
Park Theatre - 698 Osborne
Admission $7


Based on the true tale of Kentucky hardware clerk Leonard Wood, Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then tells an inspiring, poignant, and darkly humorous love story of a man who built a bizarre and sprawling home for his wife by hand in the hope that it would cure her of terminal cancer. Telling the story of Leonard and his wife Mary from just before they meet in a car crash through the latter's eventual death, Gravity unfolds through a series of flickering stop-motion images, in which live actors jitter their way through the film's hand-built sets while they narrate the action on the soundtrack.
