October Country

Michael Palmieri & Donal Mosher | US | 80

Shot over a year from one Halloween to the next, October Country is a deeply personal, beautifully rendered portrait of an American family struggling for stability while haunted by the ghosts of war, teen pregnancy, foster care, and child abuse. A collaboration between filmmaker Michael Palmieri and photographer and family member Donal Mosher, this vibrant and penetrating documentary examines the forces that unsettle the working poor and the violence that lurks beneath the surface of American life. Courtesy of Oscilloscope. Co-presented with Museum of the Moving Image.

"The main strength of October Country is that it respects the individuality of its subjects, observing them with detached compassion and allowing each of them plenty of time to talk." —A.O. Scott, The New York Times.

FAQs
How will it work?
Bring your ticket (either printed or on your phone) and our team will check your tickets with a contactless check in scanner, respecting social distancing guidelines. Before your arrival, we will ask you to make sure you can answer “no” to all of the CDC’s COVID-19 safety screening questions. Upon arrival we will do a mandatory temperature check, unless you prefer to provide proof of vaccination. Seating will be arranged in pods (up to 4 people) so that you may sit together with your group, but remain socially distanced from those not in your group. Chairs will be provided in groups of two and four. Masks will be required while inside of the venue and while interacting with staff.

Can I bring food and drinks?
All attendees will receive complimentary food and non-alcoholic beverages—though you may bring your own, if you'd like! No alcoholic beverages are allowed. Food and drink must be consumed while you are sitting in your designated area.

I’m vaccinated, do I need to wear a mask?
All attendees are required to wear a mask while interacting with staff. You will also be reminded of the mandatory safety measures via email and on screen.

What COVID-19 Measures Have Been Taken?
Our guests and our team’s safety is our primary concern. Our COVID-19 safety measures include social distancing for both guests and staff, regular cleaning of all facilities, and contact-free check-in. All attendees are required to wear a mask when interacting with staff. You will also be reminded of the mandatory safety measures via email and on-screen. You may sit in your pod with up to 4 people, but we ask that you remain socially distanced from anyone not in the group you have chosen to sit with.

Where will the screening take place within Green-Wood Cemetery?
Check in will be at the main entrance on 25th Street and 5th Avenue, but the screening location will be about 10-15 minute walk from there. Please contact us if someone in your party will need assistance getting to the location.
