Mountain Shadow Film Society Presents The Arc Of Oblivion

Mountain Shadow Film Society Presents The Arch of Oblivion


Synopsis: THE ARC OF OBLIVION explores a quirk of humankind: in a universe that erases its tracks, we humans are hellbent on leaving a trace. Set against the backdrop of the filmmaker’s quixotic quest to build an ark in a field in Maine, the film heads far afield –to salt mines in the Alps, fjords in the Arctic, and ancient libraries in the Sahara – to illuminate the strange world of archives, record-keeping, and memory. Playfully weaving stop-motion animation, spellbinding cinematography
and fascinating interviews from the director’s inner circle and experts in the fields of science, cultureand art –including documentarian Werner Herzog -- the film reveals how nature inspires the human
drive behind filmmaking. NR / 99 min. TRAILER
