Our take

The world premiere of an audacious new film by Wilkins, a Whitney Biennial 2017 selected artist. A unique cinematic experience, it blurs the lines between film, theater, radio, podcasts & gallery installations as its images fade from black to white and we hear an epic drama of utopian ideals tested.

  • Yusuf Copan's rating of the film The Republic

    I'm surprised by all the negativity! It's not quite a movie, but I enjoyed it. I love stories about the complications of life in a community that rejects society's laws and norms in favor of its own system of rules. The Republic does that very well and with an interesting set of characters (cheesy at times, but sincere and believable). Give it a shot! Listen like it's an audiobook.
