upcoming screening

May 29: I Heart Huckabees (2004)

I Heart Huckabees follows a frustrated environmentalist who is being exploited by a backstabbing public relations manager at a big-box store and enlists the services of "existential detectives" to solve the meaning of a succession of strange coincidences.  

An offbeat comedy that divided critics and earned the inclusion of links to deconstruction and dialectical monism in its “See Also” section on Wikipedia, the film captures the political despair of early aughts America, defined by imperialist foreign policy, resource extraction, suburban expansion and consumerism alongside the timeless existential dilemma of how to create meaning in a life where there is none inherently.

april 25: gaza mon amour (2020)

From directors and twin brothers Tarzan & Arab Nasser, Gaza Mon Amour follows fisherman and sixty-year-old bachelor Issa, who is secretly in love with Siham, a widowed tailor at the local market. After discovering an ancient statue of Apollo in his fishing net, a series of absurd events unfold, pushing Issa out of his shell. 

march 20: triangle of sadness (2022)

A vapid celebrity model couple are invited on a luxury cruise for the uber-rich, including a Russian oligarch, British arms dealers and an alcoholic Marx-quoting captain. What first appeared instagrammable ends catastrophically, leaving the survivors stranded on a desert island and fighting for survival.  
From director Ruben Östlund, the Palme d’Or winning Triangle of Sadness is a misanthropic satire taking on excess, power and class hierarchies.

FEBRUARY 21: SORRY TO BOTHER YOU (2018)

The directorial debut of rapper and activist Boots Riley, Sorry to Bother You takes place in an alternate reality of present-day Oakland, California, where telemarketer Cassius Green finds himself in a macabre universe after he discovers a magical key that leads to material glory. The dark comedy explores themes of race, labor, capitalism, and power.

january 30TH: snowpiercer (2013)

Before Parasite, there was Snowpiercer. Academy award winning writer and director Bong Joon-ho's English language debut is a post-apocalyptic science fiction set in an ice age following a failed attempt at climate engineering to stop global warming. Aboard a massive train that circles the Earth with the last survivors, a new, severe class system emerges.  

A critically acclaimed, instant dystopian classic, Snowpiercer takes on themes of inequality, corporate power, class struggle and revolution in a surreal, snowy, not so distant future.
