PLACES IN PERIL

[ 2013, Dir: Jason Thrasher, 60min, NR ] Inspired by the Georgia Trust's annual "Places in Peril" list, which seeks to identify and preserve historic sites throughout the state of Georgia that are threatened by demolition or neglect, musician T. Hardy Morris and filmmaker photographer Jason Thrasher traveled to these sites to film a live take away video for each song on his debut solo album Audition Tape. Morris hopes that this will draw focus to these historic places in Georgia that need protection or repair. More information on the project can be found HERE

MEET THE ARTISTS: Musician T. HARDY MORRIS and director JASON THRASHER in attendance.

SHOWTIMES:  7:30p - WEDNESDAY JUNE 18

ADMISSION:  $10 GENERAL - or - $5 w/ ATHFEST WRISTBAND

     
THE LIFE LOVE & HATE OF A FREE JAZZ MAN & HIS WOMAN  

THE LIFE, LOVE & HATE

OF A FREE JAZZ MAN AND HIS WOMAN

[ 2013, Dir: Jorge Torres-Torres, 72min, NR ] The story of Arthur Doyle, once a promising saxophonist in the New York school of Jazz' New Thing in the late 1960s and 1970s. Doyle, like many of his contemporaries, has struggled to maintain a healthy balance between life and music. The evidence of years spent pursuing a completely original sound is all around him. It is in his eyes, in his home and in the voices of his family. This film tells the story of a man who managed to live through his relationship with music. Now nearly 70, Doyle seems to be defying those forces that would keep him as a footnote in the history of American music.

MEET THE ARTISTS: Director JORGE TORRES-TORRES and musician PATRICK CAREY in attendance.

SHOWTIMES:  7:30p - FRIDAY JUNE 21

ADMISSION:  $10 GENERAL - or - $5 w/ ATHFEST WRISTBAND

     
BREADCRUMB TRAIL  

BREADCRUMB TRAIL

[ 2014, Dir: Lance Bangs, 93min, NR ]  Throughout the 1980s, a group of friends in Louisville, Kentucky grew up forming bands, breaking up, and reforming in different configurations. They were playing hardcore shows at ages 10-12, touring with Samhain as 14 year olds, recording for Homestead as Squirelbait at age 15, then formed Slint in their late teens and recorded the classic album Spiderland before they were 21. They broke up before the album's release, giving no interviews and vanishing into their own shadows. Two decades passed as filmmaker Lance Bangs assembled unseen footage of the teenagers writing and arranging Spiderland as well as the first on camera interviews with the band members and their contemporaries trying to decipher what they had been through. Featuring Slint, Steve Albini, Ian Mackaye, David Grubbs, David Yow, James Murphy and archival material from Will Oldham.

MEET THE FILMMAKER: Director LANCE BANGS in attendance.

SHOWTIMES:  7:30p - SUNDAY JUNE 22

ADMISSION:  $10 GENERAL - or - $5 w/ ATHFEST WRISTBAND

     
THE PAST IS A GROTESQUE ANIMAL  

THE PAST IS A GROTESQUE ANIMAL

[ 2014, Dir: Jason Miller, 76min, NR ] Directed by former Athenian Jason Miller, this documentary is a personal, accessible look at an artist - Kevin Barnes, frontman of the endlessly versatile indie pop band of Montreal – whose pursuit to make transcendent music at all costs drives him to value art over human relationships. As he struggles with all of those around him, family and bandmates alike, he's forced to reconsider the future of the band, begging the question – is this really worth it?

MEET THE FILMMAKER: Director JASON MILLER and co-producer ANDREW NAPIER in attendance for Friday's premiere showing.

SHOWTIMES:  7:30p - FRI 6/27 & SAT 6/28

ADMISSION:   $10 -- ADVANCE TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE
