Beacon Film Society Presents… One Cut, One Life

Screening: 8:00 PM
Q&A with director Lucia Small following the screening
“Pulses with an almost ecstatic vitality.”
— Stephen Holden, New York Times
When seminal documentarian Ed Pincus, considered the father of first-person nonfiction film, is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he and collaborator Lucia Small team up to make one last film, much to the chagrin of Jane, Ed’s wife of 50 years.
Told from two filmmakers’ points of view, One Cut, One Life challenges the form of first-person documentary. Ed and Lucia’s unique approach to filming offers a vulnerability and intimacy rarely seen in nonfiction, questioning whether some things might be too private to be made public.
The film is an intense, raw, and sometimes humorous exploration of the human condition that invites the viewer to contemplate for themselves what is important, not only at the end of life, but also during.
Critic’s Pick by The New York Times and Village Voice
