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. This presentation is supported, in part, by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
