All You Need Is Love, Even in This Crazy World


John Hoffman didn’t need the madness of the 2020 world to convince him that there is a shortage of kindness on the planet right now. An award-winning documentary filmmaker (and Dutchess County resident), Hoffman started two years ago to look for stories of kindness, decency and the power of community in America.

The end result is a new film called, “The Antidote,” which he directed with Kahane Cooperman and which can be seen now “virtually” through The Moviehouse in Millerton, N.Y.

Hoffman describes “The Antidote” as a study of “everyday people who make the intentional choice to lift others up and make their communities better, despite the fundamentally unkind ways of our society — which are at once facts of life in America, and yet deeply antithetical to our founding ideals.”

Its goal: To give us all hope in what feels to many people like a very dark time.

The movie can be seen online through The Moviehouse (which also helps support our beloved local theater, which of course is struggling to survive the COVID-19 quarantine; movie theaters in New York state are still not allowed to open). 

“The Antidote” can be seen now by going to www.themoviehouse.net. The cost is $12; after you make your payment you have seven days to unlock the film and then 24 hours to view it.
