Overview A Place of Truth

Director: Barrett Rudich
USA, 2013
Name a Price. Pick a subject. Get a Poem. Setting up her typewriter on streets across the country, 21-year-old Abi Mott taps out poetry that captures people’s lives with stunning clarity. In “A Place of Truth,” director Barrett Rudich creates an intriguing portrait of a millennial woman bringing her charm, intuition, and courage to the daunting task of being a busking poet.

Abi’s journey takes her from her hometown of Lancaster, Pennsylvania to a yoga festival in New Mexico, and then to the iconic corner of Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco. It is there that she randomly discovers seasoned street poet Lynn Gentry, who becomes her mentor, gives her a typewriter, and watches her forge a unique mark in the quirky busking world. This beautifully filmed documentary captures Abi's adventures in New York and New Orleans, where she finds herself sharing a sidewalk and personal stories with local street poets. 7:30pm | $12, $9 mbrs.

Winner of the Audience Award for Best Feature at the 2013 Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival, “A Place of Truth” is a lyrical look at intersecting themes of art, commerce, love and authenticity. It is also a quintessential American road movie with its hopeful sense that freedom, transformation and chance are fellow travelers along for the ride.
