Even Though The Whole World Is Burning
A rare opportunity to see this beautiful film offering of Poet Laureate, two-time Pulitzer winner and environmental activist William S. Merwin. EVEN THOUGH THE WHOLE WORLD IS BURNING features interviews with Mr. Merwin, his family, friends and other notables, and reflects on humankind and our relationship to this wildness called Earth.
W.S. Merwin is a vibrant, humorous and challenging subject, and has not been involved in a feature documentary before. This film is an intimate portrait of a man who is often called a "national treasure".
"To me, he's just a really profoundly inspiring artist who's lived his life on his own terms," says director Stefan Schaefer. "When I spend time with him or look at his work, he's made bold choices and he's been true to himself, and that has worked for him."
Director Stefan Schaefer will be present for Q & A post-screening.
