Human Highway (Director's Cut)

Thursday, March 19
5:00PM - 6:28PM

Paramount Theatre
713 Congress Ave


The road to the 80’s is reflected through the hi-tech, fantasy lens of a film by Neil Young, “Human Highway”.

This nuclear comedy is a hilarious, absurdist musical that is amazingly adept at using humour to deal with one of the most serious issues of our time – the threat of nuclear destruction.
