Our kids sessions are the safest and most perfect getaway for children and also serves as a community meeting point for many parents weekly. Kids under 18 enjoy a $2 cover charge, kids over 18 years old pay $3.50 (valid all day). Join in this weekend!

PG | 102 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy |

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtHM77IRkus

For four years, the courageous crew of the NSEA Protector donned their uniforms and set out on thrilling and often dangerous missions in space – then their series was cancelled.

Twenty years later, the five stars of the classic ’70s series “Galaxy Quest” are still in costume, making appearances at sci-fi conventions for legions of die-hard fans – but some of those fans are a little more far out than the actors could have ever imagined. A group of aliens who have mistaken intercepted television transmissions for “historical documents” arrive at a convention and whisk “Commander Peter Quincy Taggart” and his crew into space to help them in their all-too-real war against a deadly adversary.

With no script, no director and no clue about real space travel, the actors have to turn in the performances of their lives to become the heroes the aliens believe them to be.

THE FLICKS CELEBRATE ITS 6TH ANNIVERSARY. ALL TODAY'S SCREENINGS ARE FREE OF CHARGE.

Kurt Cobain, lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter of Nirvana, remains an icon 20 years after his death. Here, we take a journey through Cobain’s life and his career with Nirvana through the lens of his home movies, recordings, artwork, photography, and journals.

Montage of Heck is a fascinating look at the man who created music that still matters to so many people. – BOSTON GLOBE

An often brilliant, sometimes overheated but always humane documentary, one in which Nirvana’s music and fame is just the scaffolding to Cobain’s inner life. – LOS ANGELES TIMES

16:00 ONE COUCH AT A TIME (2013) @ The Flicks 2
 
event pic

One Couch at a Time follows ‘CouchSurfing evangelist’ Alexandra Liss across 6 continents, 21 countries, CouchSurfing for 7 months in the first full-length feature ever to document the CouchSurfing movement and this emerging ‘age of sharing’ we are entering.

One Couch at a Time is the first full-length feature documentary on the CouchSurfing movement and this emerging “age of sharing” we are entering. The film follows protagonist and veteran CouchSurfer, Alexandra Liss, through 21 countries, 6 subcontinents, for 7 months using CouchSurfing.org. As we explore our inner and societal limits, this film pushes us to ask ourselves and our peers “what would YOU be willing to share with a stranger?”

CouchSurfing is a planet in this “sharing economy” galaxy- and the platform for which this entire film takes place. Alexandra also explores crowd funding, co-working, ridesharing, and gifting at the ultimate sharing society – Burningman! We focus, however, on the micro by capturing the magical, heart-warming, serendipitous exchanges that occur one couch at a time.

Each host and traveler along the way provide unique experiences becoming sub-subjects illustrating the incredible exchange. Alexandra, who begins her journey full of confusion, ends up learning lessons of a lifetime with the help of a few worldly friends.

We learn, that by embracing the “age of sharing” mentality is to have access to methods which make the pursuit of your passions and dreams merely a couch away. Featured interviews include sharing economy expert Rachel Botsman, founder of Burningman Larry Harvey, sacred economist Charles Eisenstein, and of course, the founder of Couchsurfing, Casey Fenton.

16:00 Lilya 4 Ever (2002) @ Meta House

16-year-old Lilya and her only friend, the young boy Volodja, live in Estonia, fantasizing about a better life. One day, Lilya falls in love with Andrej, who is going to Sweden, and invites Lilya to come along and start a new life. But all is not what it seems.

Lukas Moodyson’s LILYA 4 EVER (2002, 109 min) is the stark, frank and disturbing vision of the life of a young victim of the underground sex trade and in all its tone of realism of abject poverty, despicable actions and of wanting to show that dreaming of a better life is not a crime but that life can shatter the illusion of a happy ending. It's an exceptional, deafening humanitarian alarm that will continue to overwhelm and outrage for years to come.

Medieval revival in 21st-century Germany? Every two years, the small town of Beverungen, in the middle of Germany, celebrates its traditional Marksmen's Festival. Festivities are focused on a shooting contest, where the winner is declared “King“.

Throughout the Germanic regions, marksmen's guilds are known since the 10th century. They protected cities and rural areas against troubles, wars and looting. In Beverungen, about a quarter of the active male population is involved in the local Marksmen's Association. Beverungen had the honor of hosting the annual festival of the “Confederation of Historical German Marksmen's Brotherhoods“ with thousands of participants coming from all over the west of Germany.

Jürgen Ellinghaus’ CROSS AND BANNER (2014, 54 min) gives an intimate insight into a perennial German popular festival tradition with medieval as well as contemporary political and religious background.

"Human Nature" by Oeur Sokuntevy @ Java Café & Gallery
 
event pic

This series of work by Cambodian artist Oeur Sokuntevy, Human Nature, explores the ambiguity between humanity and the natural world through fantastical scenarios. By creating characters that are animal, human and plant, the artist proposes an undeniable relationship between them. One of co-dependency, accountability and sometimes abuse. In What My Father Gave Me a child pulls back the ocean tide like a bed sheet and uncovers a pile of garbage and animal carcasses. Although living in a beautiful and natural environment, the damage caused by humans is ever-present, if only hidden, and the child must bear the consequences of the actions of her forefathers. In Empty Promises a woman bearing on her head a hut with her family inside offers an empty bowl to a unicorn-monkey. Thinking first of her own survival, she makes only a gesture to give back to nature but it is empty and useless.

We as humans often want to hide or disguise our animal nature. Through intellectual pursuits we try to distance ourselves from the biological instinct and deny our responsibility to the environment. With meticulous detail, Sokuntevy constructs a world populated by these hybrid characters. There is no distinction between nature, human and animal—it is through this uncertainty that the artist builds a narrative. Sokuntevy is known for her surrealistic vision, challenging topics of feminine sexuality, traditionalism and in this series on humanity’s relationship with nature she is equally bold and dramatic. Throughout the series, Sokuntevy calls into question human liability by confronting the viewer with a simple notion that “humans are animals too.”

Sokuntevy Oeur (b. 1983) is a female painter from Cambodia who is boldly leading the charge of the country’s emerging women’s art movement. At the forefront of her practice is an impassioned personal search to determine where, as an independent woman and artist, she can identify herself within contemporary Cambodian society and the natural world.

"Fucking War: Tardi, Verney and World War I" @ Institut Français
 
event pic

Drawings by Jacques Tardis, texts by Jean-Pierre Verney.

This exhibition reveals the images of World War 1 that French cartoonist Jacques Tardi drew for his book „Fucking war‟, along with texts written by historian Jean-Pierre Verney. It looks into the connections between time and storytelling, between memory and oblivion, truth and subjectivity, in an attempt to show how Tardi‟s works mark collective representations. In fact, Tardi remains a reference for the cartoonist who ventured to draw World War 1.

Within a project launched in 2014 by the AEFE (Agency for the teaching of French abroad) for the World War I commemoration, students of the Lycée français René Descartes have worked on the project « Cambodians and World War I ». They designed two boards, one about the War Memorial in Phnom Penh and one about two Cambodian soldiers who died during World War I, which will both be exhibited on this occasion.
