This Amerikan Life

United States | 2011-14 | Mika Johnson

This Amerikan Life

The Amerikans is an ongoing series of short (3-5 min.) documentaries that profile interesting, unusual, sometimes eccentric residents of northeast Ohio. Begun in 2011 and produced by Jeffrey Pence and Mika Johnson of Oberlin College, these mini-docs (all directed by Johnson) have focused, so far, on a dollhouse builder, a flamboyant funeral director, a bee sting therapist, an artist who uses his body as a paintbrush, a napkin collector, and a man in a gorilla suit, among others. Tonight Pence and Johnson will present a selection of episodes from The Amerikans and will answer audience questions after the screening.
