City Without Words: A Very Special Screening of A Place (Sort Of)

Friday, April 15 // Doors at 7 PM // 7:30 PM // Q&A and Cocktail Hour Following Screening // $15 ZACC is proud to partner with filmmaker Andy Smetanka for the first public screening of his feature-length Missoula documentary, A Place (Sort Of): A Movie Mosaic of Missoula, Montana. Seven years in the making, Smetanka’s documentary skillfully weaves a century of home movies, vintage promotional films and minor Hollywood features into a spellbinding journey through time, place and memory. ZACC’s April 15 presentation is a special version of the film, with the same vintage imagery and 100% Missoula musical soundtrack, only minus the final narration. It’s a rare opportunity to experience the ultra-local version he really set out to make, Smetanka tells us: “This is the one I dreamed about making,” he says. “For the rest of the world, Missoula might take some explaining. For Missoulians, not so much.” Filmmaker Q&A to follow.For further information, accessibility, and inquiries please visit https://www.zootownarts.org/meet-the-zacc/about/.
