About Modern Times: 
The Little Tramp punches in and wigs out inside a factory where gizmos like an employee-feeding machine may someday make the lunch hour last just 15 minutes. Bounced into the ranks of the unemployed, he teams with a street waif (Paulette Goddard) to pursue bliss and a paycheck, finding misadventures as a roller-skating night watchman, a singing waiter whose hilarious song is gibberish, a jailbird and more. In the end, as Tramp and waif walk arm and arm into an insecure future, we know they’ve found neither bliss nor a paycheck but, more importantly, each other.


A Special Work-in-Progress Test Screening
The Bowmakers
Sunday April 7, 10:45am
10:45-12:30 Intro and Screening 
12:30-1:30 Audience Feedback to Filmmakers

In the music world, Port Townsend, Washington, is known as “The Mecca of bowmaking.” No less than five world-renowned bowmakers live and work there, creating handcrafted violin, viola and cello bows for the world stage.  

Director Ward Serrill (The Heart of the Game), presents an advance audience participation screening of The Bowmakers, a feature about the most important instrument in the orchestra. The film travels from the Pacific Northwest to the bow’s origins in France and to Brazil where the one tree in the world grows that produces bows.

You will be the first audience to see this documentary and will help shape its final form. Following the screening, the filmmakers need to hear your impressions of the film.
