Film Feast: Peace Officer / Brad Barber + Scott Christopherson

Join us for Film Feast, a screening of the award-winning film, Peace Officer, and conceptual artist and baker, Andi Davis.

Film screening at 7 pm, followed by a discussion about the film.

A former sheriff will stop at nothing to confront the SWAT team he founded. Peace Officer is a feature documentary about the increasingly militarized state of American police as told through the story of William “Dub” Lawrence, a former sheriff who established and trained his rural state’s first SWAT team only to see that same unit kill his son-in-law in a controversial standoff 30 years later. Driven by an obsessed sense of mission, Dub uses his own investigative skills to uncover the truth in this and other recent officer involved shootings in his community while tackling larger questions about the changing face of peace officers nationwide.

DANNY HUNT/ A Night of Experimental Cinema

Outdoor screening with filmmaker Danny Hunt and carrot cake from Das Cafe.

Hunt will be screening 4 short films: Grandpa, Schedel, A Typickal Melungeon, and Raisin, followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker and Film Feast curator, Jared Jakins. 

Hunt’s films are experimental in nature, ranging from hand-drawn animations to projects shot using only an iphone, and covering topics that are both heartfelt and macabre. Employing a mix of unexpected narrative arcs, bizarre transcendental experiences, and symbolic imagery, Hunt playfully explores the realm of science fiction terror and the unknown.


Screening will begin at 9 pm, arrive on time to ensure your spot (& cake!), a light sweater or jacket is suggested. Folding chairs will be available, but guests may also wish to bring a favorite lawn chair or blanket. 


About the Filmmaker

The strength of his films lies in his balance of frivolity and fear, particularly in his scenes of suburban normality. He has directed fiction, documentary, experimental and animated short films. He grew up in rural Idaho and studied film at Brigham Young University. He currently lives in Provo, Utah where he does freelance work, creates video content for Provo Channel 17 and pursues creative projects.
