THE 78 PROJECT w/ PATTERSON HOOD -- WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 24
A special screening of THE 78 PROJECT MOVIE, documenting a journey across America to make one-of-a-kind 78rpm records with musicians in their hometowns using a 1930s Presto direct-to-disc recorder. With one microphone. With one blank disc. In one 3-minute take. Along the way, a kaleidoscope of technologists, historians and craftsmen from every facet of field recording – Grammy-winning producers, 78 collectors, curators from the Library of Congress and Smithsonian – provide insights and history.
In Tennessee, Mississippi, California, Louisiana, the folk singers, punk rockers, Gospel and Cajun singers in the film share their lives through intimate performances, and find in that adventure a new connection to our cultural legacy
SPECIAL GUESTS: With filmmakers ALEX STEYERMARK and LAVINIA JONES WRIGHT in attendance, and live Presto record cutting session with PATTERSON HOOD!
The latest from the greatest: a continuing series of new releases from internationally acclaimed auteur filmmakers. Series sponsored by the UGA Department of Theatre and Film Studies, and the UGA Willson Center for Arts and Humanities.
THE DANCE OF REALITY [ SEP 26 - OCT 2 ] -- In his first film in 23 years, legendary filmmaker ALEJANDRO JODOROWSKY returns to Tocopilla, a coastal town on the edge of the Chilean desert where he was born in 1929, and underwent an unhappy and alienated childhood as part of an uprooted family. Blending his personal history with metaphor, mythology and poetry, the film reflects Jodorowsky's philosophy that reality is not objective but rather a "dance" created by our own imaginations. MOOD INDIGO [ OCT 3-9 ] -- The eminently inventive MICHEL GONDRY finds inspiration from French novelist Boris Vian's cult novel to provide the foundation for this visionary and romantic love story set in a charmingly surreal Paris. When wealthy bachelor Colin (Romain Duris) unexpectedly meets Chloé (Audrey Tautou), before they know it, they're dancing to Duke Ellington and plunging headfirst into a whirlwind romance that Gondry rapturously depicts as only he can.
THE ZERO THEOREM [ OCT 10-16 ] -- Visionary director TERRY GILLIAM's madcap science fiction epic stars Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst. Living in isolation in a burnt-out church, Qohen is obsessively working on a mysterious project personally delegated to him by Management (Matt Damon) aimed at discovering the meaning of life - or the complete lack of one - once and for all.
MONTHLY LATE SHOW: THE ROOM -- FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 26
An American black comedy about love and passion, betrayal and lies, THE ROOM depicts the depths of friendship and relationships in one's life and raises life's real and most asked question: "Can you ever really trust anyone?... Called the “best worst movie ever made,” unintentional humor abounds in this modern cult favorite, highlighted by a deliriously entertaining albeit undeniably awful performance from its creepy long-haired creator.
But despite - or maybe also due to - the miles of cinematic ineptitude, THE ROOM is a one-of-a-kind hilarious blast from beginning to end. Read Flagpole Magazine's review and interview with Tommy Wiseau HERE
SHOWTIMES: 10:30p - FRI 9/26 | ADMISSION: $7.50
BAD MOVIE NIGHT: OVERKILL -- TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 30
Celebrating the very worst that cinema has to offer, Bad Movie Night presents the over-edited, action-packed incompetence of OVERKILL. Mickey “Mike” Delano (played by real life hunk and Playgirl’s Man of the Year 1985, Steve Rally) is a perpetually shirtless police detective working the mean streets of Little Toyko at the height of mid-80s Japan-phobic hysteria.
Convinced that the Yakuza is only a few sushi bars away from controlling the entire west coast, Mickey goes against his captain’s orders and infiltrates the organization, getting his comically inept partner killed in the process. Although his partner forgets to load his gun occasionally, Mickey feels responsible for his death, and after a quick sauna break, he joins forces with a visiting Tokyo cop well-versed in dealing with the Yakuza.
Can this unlikely pair defeat the entire west coast underworld in a mere 80 minutes? And can you really teach yourself how to be a samurai sushi chef in a few days? And was this movie actually edited by a blindfolded toddler? Find out as we screen Miami Connection’s long-lost weird uncle OVERKILL this month, only at Bad Movie Night!
SHOWTIMES: 8:30p - TUE 9/30 | ADMISSION: FREE
