Filmmaker Sarah Price to speak at KU

LAWRENCE — Independent filmmaker Sarah Price will talk about her work at 1:30 p.m. Friday, April 18, at Oldfather Studios, 1621 W. Ninth St. The event is free and open to the public.

Price’s latest film is “Summercamp!,” which has screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, South By Southwest and the Chicago International Film Festival.

“Summercamp!” follows campers between the ages of 6 and 15 as they form friendships, fight homesickness and gossip about their prescribed mood-altering medications. Featuring music by the Flaming Lips and Noisola, the film explores life in the unique world of summer camps.

The New York Times says “ ‘Summercamp!’ is a riot of talent shows and campfires, canoeing and holistic clowning.”

The event is sponsored by the Department of Theatre and Film at the University of Kansas.
