    The Margaret Mead Film Festival 2018 presented by the American Museum of Natural History is occuring on October 18-21 2018.

    The festival’s mission is to increase our understanding of the complexity and diversity of the peoples and cultures that populate our planet. It presents the best in documentary, experimental films, animation, hybrid works, and more. 


    We are pleased to invite you to attend the films’ screenings:

    Runners (Biegacze) by Łukasz Borowski, Poland

    A nearly 150-mile race brings out extremes of human experience, from pain to joy and everything in between. Follow three long-distance runners as they conquer one of Poland’s most gruesome ultramarathons: a 52-hour race through rocky, wooded terrain, climbing and descending through a treacherous and equally breathtakingly beautiful mountainous region. As the runners break down physically and emotionally discover what drove them commit to this race and what motivates them to continue.

    Ethiopiques – Revolt of the Soul by Maciek Bochniak, Poland, Germany, Ethiopia, France, USA

    The jazz-funk music that came out of Addis Ababa in the 1960s and '70s was complex, fun, original, and nearly lost to the world. Meet the Ethiopian artists who forged this beautiful new sound amid constant political turmoil and repression, and feel the passion that has gone into keeping that sound alive.
