Description

Errol Morris Retrospective: In conjunction with The B-Side, we celebrate and screen the auteur's major works.

After his breakthrough hit Gates of Heaven, Errol Morris continued to explore Americana through his unique perspective, this time focusing his attention on the inhabitants of a remote swamp town in the Florida panhandle. With a droll tone and a distinct undercurrent of optimism, Morris toes the line between irony and sincerity. The charmingly oddball residents of Vernon open up about their way of life, their pastimes and their beliefs in this entertaining docu-comedy.
