A group of activists holds a public meeting, desperate to save the world. As the meeting unravels, they discover that the greatest threat to their future is already in the room.

Adapted from Australia’s internationally acclaimed Back to Back Theatre’s hit THE SHADOW WHOSE PREY THE HUNTER BECOMES—developed in residency at MASS MoCA with the Sundance Theatre Lab in 2019—this darkly humorous film reflects the company’s commitment to alternative models of story creation and screen production. It was created through more than two years of conversation and improvisation with the performers and co-authors; 95% of the people on screen are people with disabilities, and the majority of the crew roles are fulfilled by interns who identify as people with disabilities supported by professional mentors.

Join us for a Q&A will the filmmakers following the screening moderated by MASS MoCA Director Kristy Edmunds.
