Performance Notes

× A community of electrically sensitive people is fleeing to a remote mountainous region of West Virginia called the National Radio Quiet Zone. In the shadow of one of the world’s largest and most sensitive radio telescopes, The Quiet Zone follows four characters as they adapt to life in this unique environment. This formal and under-stated documentary draws a subtle parallel between the telescope and the electro-sensitive community, reflecting growing concerns and ambivalence about the relentless permeation of communications technology. Directed by Elisa Gonzalez + Daniel Froidevaux. 45 minutes Screens with: Ice Flow, a short documentary by Dawson City-based filmmaker Cynthia Hunt, following the cycle of freeze-up of the Yukon River in Dawson. 10 minutes
