public house

"Public House is a revelation coming from Sarah Turner, whose film, Perestroika, was so powerful and meditative. Here, she passionately defends the existence of a neighborhood pub by emptying it of inhabitants like a village under siege, then filling it again, bringing it back to life until it's bursting with layers of voices, stories of multi-generations, poetry, tap dancing and storytelling. The film uses techniques Turner used to such different effect earlier, here looking outward, and bursting with generosity."

Lizzie Borden
