ARCATA FROM DAWN TILL DUSK: A Day in the Life the World Will See
Arcata From Dawn Till Dusk is the only film from the United States in an international series called The World From Dawn Till Dusk. The nine short films from eight countries, including Russia, China and Iran, will have their official premiere next year in Poland. But the Arcata film, created at HSU, gets a local sneak preview on Saturday September 11 at the Van Duzer Theatre.
Arcata From Dawn Till Dusk documents a day in the life of Arcata, from bakers preparing breakfast rolls at Los Bagels and an early morning round of disc golf in the community forest, to a belly-dancing rehearsal, and a Shabbat dinner in an Arcata home. It is a 42-minute“observational documentary,” which witnesses events without comment or music soundtrack added.
HSU film professor Ann Alter is the film’s executive producer, with HSU film student Sarah Lindsey Beck as producer.
