Sat, June 19, Redcat: SAM GREEN's new film "Utopia in Four Movements"

“Sam Green has produced a brilliantly witty, but also moving meditation on our loss of faith in the dream of progress. Sam has created something completely original – a new form of live story-telling that draws you in emotionally in a way that traditional documentaries almost always fail to do. I loved it.”
— Adam Curtis, Director, The Power of Nightmares

Filmmaker Sam Green, best known for his work on the Academy Award-nominated Weather Underground documentary film, is bringing his new “live documentary” “Utopia in Four Movements” project to the Redcat Theater in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday, June 19th at 830pm. Sam narrates the film live, and the Brooklyn-based band the Quavers will be doing a live soundtrack. More info and advance tickets are available from
