MOAD MDC presents Real Utopias, a series of films that examine past and current experiments in our collective search for freedom, equality, and democracy.
June 6th screening will present the following two films:
Soul City, USA (2016) is a documentary short that tells the story of a group of civil rights activists and city slickers who attempt to build a multiracial utopia in the heart of Klan Country, North Carolina, in the 1970s. As this group of dreamers try to bring together unlikely allies to support black power and economic development, they are forced to balance their soaring idealism with the hostile reality of the times.
Paolo Soleri: Citizen of the Planet (2016) explores the artist, the dreamer, the philosopher, the architect Paolo Soleri as he tried to build his new world filled with futuristic ideas and controversy.
