Current Event


The Power of Story, Part 2: Expecting the Unexpected

What happens when you start a documentary with an idea and premise, yet along the way the story has a power of its own, and shifts and changes? How does “Expect the Unexpected” show up?

Documentary Filmmaker Barbara Bentree and the Meow Wolf: Origin Story filmmaking team will share clips and conversation concerning their recent productions. In this inviting series, Storyteller Host Ramona King will guide us through our afternoon, to consider, ponder, learn and listen to one another.
