For the millions who grew up alongside Michael Apted’s epic Up Series (Seven Up!, etc.), multimedia wizard John Sanborn (PICO, MVFF 2013; The Planets, MVFF 2011) has upped the ante with a film that brims with mindful self-reflection and plenty of heart. In ALLoT, Sanborn attends his 40th high-school reunion with a film crew to interview former classmates and gain a measure of closure on some openended chapters of his life. High school is, after all, where you dream with friends about what you will do with your future. Engaging with his former classmates from New York’s Walt Whitman High School, Sanborn pulls no punches with his questions: Who did you imagine you’d become, and, after 40 years, who are you now? The result is a highly personal and surprisingly universal memoir sparkling with contemplative conversation and meditations on the unpredictable challenges and transformations of life—and that’s ALLoT: A Long List of Things. WORLD PREMIERE
