In the film, local artists tell the stories of their first performances at the DIY venue, which was slated to relocate in 2021.
Since opening in February 2015, “many cross-genre music shows, workshops, performances, talks, and exhibitions happened at Rhizome,” according to the film’s description. “Community members and artists tell the story of the space (that follows in [the] footsteps of many similar DIY venues), showcasing important underrepresented voices, yet having to relocate in fast-changing cities. Featuring many mind-bending performances over the years, this film presents snippets of memory of experimental arts and community in the historic Takoma house in DC.”
