Premiered in 2010 Sundance Film Festival, “Utopia in Four Movements” is a multi-media documentary/lecture about the battered state of the utopian impulse at the dawn of the 21st century created by filmmaker Sam Green and musician Dave Cerf (both known for the academy award nominated film The Weather Underground). This ‘live documentary’ includes narration by Green and a performance by the Brooklyn-based band The Quavers, with special guest Brendan Canty of Fugazi on drums.
