Some of the biggest buzz to come out of Sochi (not involving Bob Costas' eye) was about Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir, the latest skaters come commentators. But before Tara and Johnny, or Scott Hamilton and Tom Hammond, there was-- Dick Button, the Emmy Award-winning skating commentator famous for his precise, passionate, opinionated rink-side analyses.  
Button will discuss his career and new memoir, Push Dick's Button, after a screening of Keri Pickett's documentary, The Fabulous Ice Age. The film is an ode to the golden era of skating and one skater’s quest to make sure their history is not forgotten.
Q&A Dick Button, two-time Olympic gold medalist, five-time World Champion, and seven-time U.S. Champion. Copies of Button's memoir will be available for purchase after the event.
Keri Pickett. 2013. 76 m. NR. USA. N/A.

"Rarely Seen Cinema"
Set in a bleak future where humans are on the brink of extinction, Children of Men is a dazzling vision of technology, politics, random bursts of violence—and pure blessed hope, which makes everything possible. There’s nothing like Alfonso Cuarón’s (Gravity) breathtaking action scenes and daring, fluid camera.
With host Jonathan Demme
