Description:

The Emerson is a thriving arts and community center located a block from historic downtown Bozeman. The building was originally an elementary school built in 1918, attended by thousands of Bozeman youth before its closure in 1991. With the building facing demolition in 1992, a grassroots coalition of community members dedicated to historic preservation and celebration of the arts formed a non-profit board, raised funds, and bought the building from the City of Bozeman.

THE BOZEMAN DOC SERIES

THE WORLD BEFORE YOUR FEET

Thursday, January 24th, 7:00pm

The Emerson Cultural Center

On Thursday, January 24th, at 7pm at the Emerson Center, The Bozeman Doc Series presents the Montana premiere of the award-winning new documentary The World Before Your Feet.

There are 8,000 miles of roads and paths in New York City and for the past six years Matt Green has been walking them all – every street, park, cemetery, beach, and bridge. It’s a five-borough journey that stretches from the barbershops of the Bronx to the forests of Staten Island, from the Statue of Liberty to Times Square, with Matt amassing a surprisingly detailed knowledge of New York’s history and people along the way.

Something of a modern-day Thoreau, Matt gave up his former engineering job, his apartment, and most of his possessions, sustaining his endeavor through couch-surfing, cat-sitting and a $15-per-day budget. He’s not sure exactly why he’s doing it, only knowing that there’s no other way he’d rather spend his days. Executive produced by Oscar nominee Jesse Eisenberg, The World Before Your Feet is a tribute to an endlessly fascinating city and the freedom to be found, wherever you live, in simply taking a walk.

“A Gotham-set charmer about the pleasures of wandering…endearing…a fine match for both lovers of the city and viewers with a soft spot for self-aware oddballs.” The Hollywood Reporter

“An engaging illustration of the difference between merely looking and really seeing…This portrait of one man’s eccentric yet appealing, even enviable quest is a gently philosophical exercise in armchair travel that underlines how much of our own immediate “world” we take for granted.” Variety

“Enlightening, life-affirming…[director] Workman, who’s behind him every step of the way without ever getting in the way, allows the city and its colorful denizens to take center stage.” The Los Angeles Times
