Brent Green: Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then
Friday, September 10, 2010, 8 PM

Based on the true tale of Kentucky hardware clerk Leonard Wood, Brent Green's Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then tells the poignant and darkly humorous love story of a man who built a bizarre and sprawling home for his wife in the hope that it would cure her of terminal cancer. Accompanied by a stellar band of musicians that includes Brendan Canty (Fugazi), Howe Gelb (Giant Sand), Catherine McRae, and others, Green uses intense narration ranging from quiet, vulnerable storytelling to cathartic fumes bordering on the evangelistic.

For more information, please visit the EMPAC website - and check out the trailer and the blog for the film.
