The GATE Theatre Within Film Series is pleased to present an exclusive showing of Mindwalk — a classic, seminal film in the transformational genre. With a huge cult following, many have heard about the film, but few have seen it. Released in 1990, this is a rare viewing opportunity. Director Bernt Capra will join GATE founder John Raatz for a Q & A after the screening.
Capra breaks every rule of conventional commercial filmmaking. The result is a brilliant, exhilarating trip into the minds of three individuals: a politician, a poet, and a physicist. Hoping to recharge after his defeat in the U.S. presidential election, Jack Edwards (Sam Waterston) contacts an old poet friend, Thomas Harriman (John Heard). They meet in France and travel to the secluded, medieval islet of Mont St. Michel where they meet Sonia Hoffman, a physicist turned philosopher (Liv Ullman). The trio engages in a brilliant, thought-provoking conversation delving into topics that include global warming, Ozone depletion, deforestation, water pollution, and how they affect the world on a political and metaphysical level. The three accomplished actors portray the characters’ convictions and opinions with heart and emotion. The script was based on the ecological and holistic teachings of the philosopher, Fritjof Capra. Mindwalk is a film for those who live in a world of thinking the unthinkable.
Tickets: $10 for GATE members and $15 for non-members.
