Cinema Program screening of "Jon Benet's Tricycle"
Directed by Andrew Novick (1987). Andrew Novick─a Mile-High legend as the man who collects almost everything─forges all sorts of emotional connections to the objects he acquires: memories, curiosity or interest in the darker side of humanity. He was living in Boulder 22 years ago when JonBenét Ramsey's tricycle fell into his hands after her notorious murder took place.
Recently compelled to tackle the unsolved mystery in his own way, Novick took the tricycle on a journey into the realm of psychic phenomena - or did it take him? This quirky autobiographical documentary is also an investigation of the human urge to possess what we value and the impact that pop culture and the media have on our experience of tragedy.
