SET! Screens at Araluen Arthouse Cinema on Monday 27 September, 7pm.

DOCUMENTARY | 2021 | USA

Directed by Scott Gawlik

Table setting – for most of us is a chore, but for some it’s a sport. Once a year, a group of highly competitive table-setters vie for the “Best of Show” ribbon at the Orange County Fair competition, often referred to as “The Olympics of Table Setting”.

From taxidermied monkeys to table-reveal parties, eccentric personalities and old rivalries come to a head as contestants spend months preparing their tables only to be penalized by a misplaced dessert fork or what’s fondly referred to as ‘forking yourself’. But, SET! explores topics far beyond the silverware. It shows the extent to which a hobby can become a passion, which can then provide a purpose. It explores the reasons why we make art and how sharing your creative vision, however terrifying that may be, ultimately makes you stronger.
