The Measure of All Things is a new “live documentary” by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Sam Green. Meditating on fate, time, and the outer contours of the human experience, and inspired very loosely by the Guinness Book of World Records to weave together a series of portraits of record-holding people, places, and things—including the tallest man (7’-9”), the oldest living thing (a 5,000 year old Bristlecone Pine in Southern California), and the man struck by lightning the most times (seven!)—the piece will be screened with in-person narration and a live soundtrack. 

November 21, 7 and 9pm performance with yMusic
November 22, 7 and 9pm performance with Brendan Canty (Fugazi), T. Griffin, and Catherine McRae
Tickets $25

Sam Green: The Measure of All Things received support from Rooftop Films, DCTV, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
