As part of BAM’s 150th anniversary celebrations, filmmaker Kaleo La Belle–joined by childhood friend Sufjan Stevens (The BQE, 2007 Next Wave; TAKEOVER 2008) and singer-songwriter Raymond Raposa–comes to the opera house for a screening of his award-winning documentary Beyond This Place.
Deeply reflective and personal, La Belle’s breakout film charts his attempts to reconnect with his perpetually stoned, long-estranged father Cloud Rock during a grueling 500-mile bike tour across the Pacific Northwest. Stevens and Raposa share the stage as special musical guests, providing a live soundtrack to this emotionally nuanced look at family ties and the process of moving on.
