Description

Plays Sunday, August 4 and Wednesday, August 7 at the Michigan. Part of the SavCo Hospitality Summer Classic Film Series presented by the University of Michigan Credit Union, with media support from MLive/The Ann Arbor News.

Arlo Guthrie plays himself in this film based on his song of the same name. After getting kicked out of college, Arlo decides to visit his friend Alice (Pat Quinn) for Thanksgiving dinner. After dinner is over, Arlo volunteers to take the trash to the dump, but finds it closed for the holiday, so he just dumps the trash in the bottom of a ravine. This simple act of littering gets him arrested, and sends him on a bizarre journey that ends with him in front of the draft board.
