Join us for a screening of in complete world (2008), a feature-length documentary made up of street interviews conducted throughout New York City by filmmaker Shelly Silver. Mixing political questions ("Are we responsible for the government we get?") with more broadly existential ones ("Do you feel you have control over your life?"), the film centers on the tension between individual and collective responsibility. in complete world can be seen as a user's manual for citizenship in the twenty-first century, as well as a glimpse into the opinions and self-perceptions of a diverse group of Americans. It is a testament to the people of New York City in this new millennium who freely offer thoughtful, provocative and at times tender revelations to a complete stranger, just because she asked.
