Films, Speakers, in “The Art of Living Well”

NATURE’S LAST GASPS: In the documentary film “Soundtracker,” part of a series at Hopewell Theater, an Emmy-winning sound recordist tries to capture the vanishing sounds of nature.

Hopewell Theater’s ongoing “The Art of Living Well” series features films, speakers, and interactive discussions exploring ways to cultivate serenity, meaning, and a deeper connection to one’s self and the world, through February. Hopewell Theater is at 5 South Greenwood Avenue in Hopewell Borough.

Highlights include the film The River and the Wall, which is focused on the immigration debate; Mystery of Picasso, about the painter’s creative process; All the Time in the World, about a family that lived a simpler life in the Yukon for nine months; and Soundtracker, the story of a sound recordist trying to record the vanishing sounds of nature.

Also in the series are live events, “Pecha Kucha: Hopewell,” informal gatherings where creative people get together and share ideas, works, thoughts, and holiday snaps.
