This American (Suburban & Surreal) Life
Livermore is the story of a seemingly quiet suburban town on the verge of a crisis - the Centennial Time Capsule is missing, and no one can remember where to find it. This offbeat documentary unearths one suburban town's long-forgotten yet often hilarious history. Livermore's 25-year-old time capsule has inexplicably disappeared, and a handful of eccentric locals are the last hope for finding it. Part history, part mystery, but mostly comedy, Livermore introduces a memorable cast of characters, each with a distinct vision of the town - from romanticized tributes to scathing send-ups of suburban life. As they dig deep into their collective memories, these armchair historians uncover a peculiar set of stories. A supernatural light bulb, a mysterious totem pole, a scandalous book of photographs and the ominous nuclear lab are just the beginning of a surreal trip down memory lane. Directed by Bay Area filmmakers Rachel Raney and David Murray.
