16:00 MISTAKEN FOR STRANGERS (new) @ The Flicks 1 + 2 + 3
 
event pic

Hailed by Michael Moore as “one of the best documentaries about a band that I’ve ever seen” and by Pitchfork as “the funniest, most meta music movie since SPINAL TAP,” MISTAKEN FOR STRANGERS is a truly hilarious and touching film about two brothers, Matt and Tom Berninger.

Matt, the lead singer of the critically acclaimed rock band The National, finally finds himself flush with success.

His younger brother Tom is a loveable slacker – a filmmaker and metal-head still living with his parents in Cincinnati. On the eve of The National’s biggest tour to date, Matt invites Tom to work for the band as a roadie, unaware of Tom’s plan to film the entire adventure.

What starts as a rock documentary quickly becomes a crowd-pleasing journey about family, ambition, and the creative process.

Alternately hilarious, cringe-inducing, inspiring, depressing, stupid and profoundly intelligent. – ASSOCIATED PRESS

“Mistaken for Strangers” is, like its maker, scruffy, undisciplined and eager to be loved. The big surprise is how easy it is to comply. – NEW YORK TIMES

(80 mins, documentary, comedy, music)

16:00 The Virginity Trade (2009) @ Meta House
 

Cambodian virgins' trade, rampant and thrust underground, is making investigations almost impossible. UK director Matthew Watson’s documentary CAMBODIA: THE VIRGINITY TRADE (2009, 60mins) is the compelling and utterly alarming account of the lives of girls and women affected by this crime. Many Asian men believe that obtaining a virgin girl for sex will grant them extra health and luck. What is wrong with them?

18:30 CLOSER (2004) @ The Flicks 1 + 2 + 3
 
event pic

Set in contemporary London, a story of passion, drama, love, and abandonment involving four strangers–their chance meetings, instant attractions and casual betrayals.

Smart-but-ineffectual journalist Dan “We use euphemisms!” cannot decide between his girlfriend, loving-but-clingy waitress Alice, or his lover cold-but-intellectual photographer Anna; herself indecisive between Dan and honest-but-thuggish “You’re bloody gorgeous!” doctor Larry.

The film, as Tarantino might put it, puts the four leading characters in a box and strips them apart.

“Vibrates with eroticism, bruising laughs and dynamite performances from four attractive actors doing decidedly unattractive things.” – ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE

“Closer has lots to offer: smart performances, archly funny dialogue and a feeling for the way a group of strangers can become so familiar that they’re apt to rip one another to shreds.” – TIME MAGAZINE

(104 mins, drama, romance)

19:00 Factory Records (200&) @ Meta House
 

In a dark, northern city in the late 1970s, five dreamers built a record label (Factory);,3 classic bands (Joy Division, New Order and Happy Mondays) and Britain’s first super club (The Hacienda). Led by Tony Wilson, they created a unique collision between conceptual art and street music.

FACTORY RECORDS – FROM JOY DIVISION TO HAPPY MONDAYS (2007, 90 min) tells the story of how a TV presenter (Wilson), an out of work actor (Alan Erasmus), an art student (Peter Saville), a DJ (Rob Gretton) and an aspiring record producer (Martin Hannett) pioneered Britain’s independent pop culture, imagined a new Manchester, and blew a shed-load of money.

Featuring an extensive interview with Factory’s creative genius Anthony Wilson who sadly died Friday 10 August 2007, the BBC production celebrates the triumph, tragedy and human comedy that was Factory and is a fitting tribute to Wilson’s contribution to British pop culture and to Manchester.

20:30 INSTRUCTIONS NOT INCLUDED (Mexican!) @ The Flicks 1
 
event pic

Valentin (Eugenio Derbez) is Acapulco’s resident playboy-until a former fling leaves a baby on his doorstep and takes off without a trace.

Valentin leaves Mexico for Los Angeles to find the baby’s mother, but only ends up finding a new home for himself and his newfound daughter, Maggie (Loreto Peralta).

An unlikely father figure, Valentin raises Maggie for six years, while also establishing himself as one of Hollywood’s top stuntmen to pay the bills, with Maggie acting as his on-set coach.

As Valentin raises Maggie, she forces him to grow up too. But their unique and offbeat family is threatened when Maggie’s birth mom shows up out of the blue, and Valentin realizes he’s in danger of losing his daughter – and his best friend.

There’s a lot of movie here with unexpected developments, held together by the irresistible chemistry between Derbez and his adorable pint-sized co-star. – LOS ANGELES TIMES

Derbez, who also directed the film, gives the movie a strong core through his expressive face. – FRESNO BEE

20:30 THE KILLING FIELDS (1984) @ The Flicks 2
 
event pic

Sydney Schanberg is a New York Times journalist covering the civil war in Cambodia. Together with local representative Dith Pran, they cover some of the tragedy and madness of the war, in Phnom Penh.

When the American forces leave, Dith Pran sends his family with them, but stays behind himself to help Schanberg cover the event. As an American, Schanberg won't have any trouble leaving the country, but the situation is different for Pran; he's a local, and the Khmer Rouge are moving in.

The Killing Fields is a suspenseful and exhilarating experience, a journey through an apocalyptic landscape that features one shocking image after another. Watch, and you'll see why the film is so acclaimed and a must-see for everybody in Cambodia; locals as visitors.

20:30 Control (2008) @ Meta House
 

Married at 19, the brightest star of the post-punk scene at 22, dead at 23. The life of Joy Division's Ian Curtis is the stuff of rock mythology – and a much talked-about feature film CONTROL (2008, 122 min). Star photographer Anton Corbijn was one of the few people to know Joy Division's Ian Curtis. His directorial debut film is a work of art, thanks to its evocative black and white cinematography and sensational performances from Sam Riley and Samantha Morton. Even those not familiar with Joy Division can still appreciate the beauty of the film.
