The Doo Dah Man (Guest Speaker)

June 16

An indie road movie set in 1980s southwestern USA. Two lives intersect when a high school graduate escaping his family past meets a smooth-talking con artist on the run from the law.  The gentle directorial touch and pacing in the development of the relationship between the two lead characters, turns a familiar road movie trope into a satisfying film, one that brings thoughts of parenthood to mind for some time after watching. We’re delighted to welcome director Claude Green for Q&A.

‘Based on the teenage experiences of co-writer Jack Ballo … the surrogate father-son relationship that emerges from their travels proves quietly engaging.’ Jason Best, Movie Talk.
