About This Event

Without Them I Am Lost, a new feature-length documentary from Square Top Theatre, offers a glimpse into an Arctic community clinging to a fragile coastline in a rapidly changing world. The story follows American writer, Damon Falke, as he considers the implications of migrating to the far north of Norway. The people he finds thrive there. They understand the sublime power of nature. Their lives and stories are shaped by it. Directed by Charles M Pepiton, Without Them I Am Lost is a meditation on landscape and the shape of home.

About the speaker: Charles M Pepiton works as Professor of Theatre & Dance at Gonzaga University and Producing Artistic Director for Square Top Theatre (STT). His work includes Climbing Eros, a documentary filmed in Greece about pilgrimage, crossing distance, and returning to earth; Koppmoll, a documentary filmed in Norway about home, family, loss, and a nearly forgotten war; The Scent of a Thousand Rains by Damon Falke, a performance piece in verse for an actor and a violinist; and Laura, or Scenes from a Common World, an experimental film and gallery installation.
