"My 2020" — Peter Odabashian's New Film
August 11th at the Rosendale Theater
Dear Friends —
ALTE: Getting Old Together, is presenting Peter Odabashian’s new film, “MY 2020,” on Thursday evening, August 11th, at 7:00 p.m.the Rosendale Theater in Rosendale, NY.
“MY 2020” documents the regrouping into a single household of the filmmaker’s multi-racial, three-generation family during the first year of Covid-19. “My wife [Esther Cohen], my family, and the living room couch dominated daily life,” says Peter, “and that’s where I pointed my camera. Covid-19, living in a bubble, election anxiety, and true love became the story lines. . . . MY 2020 is a kitchen sink, a movie genre where the story is told by looking at ordinary domestic situations, and in my film that includes a scene with myself, a coffee maker, and an actual kitchen sink. I have always been fascinated with the everyday, and I hope MY 2020 resonates with some of the feelings you may have experienced in your 2020.”
Admission is only $15/$10 for members of the theater. Please purchase tickets by clicking here. There’ll be a post-screening discussion with Peter Odabashian moderated by Caren Martineau, founder of Bevival.com, and a cocktail party afterwards at a local Rosendale restaurant.
