Bellwether


The Bellwether Film Series celebrates fresh approaches to fiction, non-fiction and experimental cinema.

Bellwether is co-curated by George Myers, Amherst Cinema’s General Manager, Pioneer Valley-based filmmaker Luke Meyer, and Andrew Hart, Hampshire College.

All Bellwether films are free to Amherst Cinema Members!

COMBAT OBSCURA is a groundbreaking look at daily life in a war zone as told by the Marines themselves, ingeniously repurposing original footage to reveal the intensity and paradoxes of an ambiguous war from an unvarnished perspective. Director Miles Lagoze in person. Free to Amherst Cinema Members.
Wed, 6/19
This documentary chronicles the experiences of several visually impaired artists, including photographer John Dugdale and writer Ryan Knighton, focusing on the ways each artist (and their creative process) is impacted by loss of vision.
