12-13 Passport #2  Oslo, August 31st

Searching for Sugar Man  A favorite from this year's T/F Film Fest. (I know I bought his first album after seeing it.) A mysterious musician from Detroit and songs of rebellion in Apartheid South Africa. Rodriguez is playing at Roots n Blues this year. Friday, Sept 21, 7:30pm at the Peace Park stage. Should be quite an experience.

Monday the 17th
  We have a free screening of Nostalgia for the Light.  Brought to you in part by KMOS.

August 19-20  
Passport #3: Policeman

Robot and Frank  Set in the not-too-distant future, Frank is reformed jewelry thief who's been given a robot butler by his son. Things get outta hand.

September 30  The robot lands. Veiled in mystery, bent on conquest---all will be revealed this night. Thus begins our journey to full digital projection and the start of a powerful fundraiser. Click here for more info.

Cosmopolis  Cronenberg's new film, based on Don DeLillo's novel by the same name. Featuring Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche. A strange, strange trip to the barbershop.

We're showing Don Hertzfeldt's animated short It's Such a Beautiful Day. Two years in the making, 23 hand-drawn minutes. The conclusion to the Bill Trilogy. You'll also see Everything Will Be Okay and I Am So Proud of You.

The Master  The new feature from Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood). Joaquin Phoenix is back (after I'm Still Here) as a naval veteran finding his way in a post-war world. Philip Seymour Hoffman is a "writer, a doctor, a nuclear physicist, a theoretical philosopher" channeling L. Ron Hubbard. Looks like it's gonna be awesome.
