Still image from the film Old Joy
In this ‘Cain and Abel’ story, Kurt (played by cult musician Will Oldham), a post-hippie with never-present promise, convinces his friend Mark to go on a short camping trip to a quasi-mystical hot spring oasis in Oregon’s Cascade Mountains. Mark is a father-to-be, intent on putting the ‘Kurt-part of his life’ behind him, but also silently nostalgic for a more carefree, radical past. The film features a soundtrack from Yo La Tengo and is an exploration of contemporary liberal masculinity. (35mm Presentation)
