Film screening: Nuts!« Back to Events
AUGUST 5 – Friday, 6:00 p.m.
Free and open to the public
Artist and director Penny Lane’s Nuts! is a Sundance award-winning, feature-length documentary about Dr. John Romulus Brinkley, an eccentric genius who built an empire in Depression-era America with a unique impotence cure and a million-watt radio station. Using animated reenactments, interviews, archival footage, and a hilariously unreliable narrator, Nuts! traces Brinkley’s rise from poverty and obscurity to the heights of celebrity, wealth, and influence – and his inevitable fall. Introduction and Q&A with Mechanical Eye Microcinema.
Presented in partnership with Mechanical Eye Microcinema.
