Designers Emily Pilloton and Matthew Miller bring their radical and innovative educational program to Bertie County, North Carolina, transforming people and place over the course of a turbulent and inspiring year. Each season brings a new set of challenges, both prescribed and unexpected, and the resourceful instructors (and their industrious students) must apply the principles of their curriculum—design, build, transform—to their lives as well as to their projects. Earnest, determined, and rousing, the film and its subjects, raise questions of self-reliance, citizenship, and community-building in its most literal interpretation. TM

Tickets go on sale here Monday, March 25, at 11:00 am, and they do sell out so I recommend ordering early. Showtime is 5:00 but I'm listing the start time as 4:30 since crowds can be expected.
