New Mo' Cut is a short documentary chronicling the surprising discovery at the Berkeley dump of a 16mm film of Moe Moskowitz at the opening night party for his legendary Telegraph Avenue bookstore in 1965.

Kevin Laird, a recycler working for Urban Ore, found the film canister and managed to deliver it into the hands of Moe's daughter Doris who didn't know of its existence or origin. Soon after the film is digitized and put online, Doris discovers the filmmaker is Oscar-nominated screenwriter David Peoples. The two-minute, forty-six second workprint is a time capsule of Berkeley and a peek into Peoples' early documentary film explorations before gaining notoriety as a screenwriter rewriting Blade Runner, earning an Oscar nomination for Unforgiven and co-writing 12 Monkeys with his wife, screenwriter Janet Peoples.

New Mo' Cut: David Peoples lost film of Moe's Books recalls one of Telegraph's larger than life characters, Moe Moskowitz, while musing on the used book trade, filmmaking and reclaiming history from the waste stream.

A digital copy of David Peoples' 1965 16mm film of Moe's Books will screen after the film.
