Miami Int’l Film Festival – Go See: Off the Grid
This beautiful documentary, produced and directed by Jeremy Stulberg and Randy Stulberg, is running during the film festival and I highly recommend going to go see it. Off the Grid: Life on the Mesa explores a community of radicals, misanthropes and the off-kilter that has sprouted in the New Mexico desert. Among them is Stan, an incredibly sweet and gentle craggy old pig farmer who takes in run-aways; and Maine, a vet (there are many in this community) who is dying of cancer but just wants the government and medical establishment to leave him the hell alone. You can tell the Stulbergs have found a way to fall in love with their subject-matter: they manage to capture the photographic beauty of these grim homesteads and to tell these people’s stories not just without condescension, but with tribute. Just a really great movie. Check it out. The next screening is on Thursday night:
