More DC Screens

Darren tipped me off to a screening of Caveh Zahedi’s I am a Sex Addict on NOvember 15 as a part of the “Under the Influence” film series at the AFI Silver. According the UTI website, film starts at 6:30 PM, and Zahedi will be in attendance to discuss the film.

Speaking of the Silver, a new 35mm print of Bresson’s Pickpocket will be showing several times this week. It’s a gorgeous film, so I’m hoping to make it out this week to see the new print.

DC filmmaker and blogger Sujewa tipped me off to another blog he’s running, Filmmaking for the Poor. The blog appears to address many of the questions I’m investigating right now concerning definitions of indie and alternative cinema, as well as questions about self-distribution. Many of the entries, including this discussion of assembling cheap digital editing equipment, appear to focus on the practical issues of making inexpensive films.

    If you have the evening free and can get a ticket, go see Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story at the Silver tonight. It is the wittiest and most satisfying comedy I’ve seen in years. Really a great, great film.

    Darren, I may not have time tonight, but I’ve heard good things about the Shandy movie (Michael Winterbottom is the director, which is promising). Hopefully it’ll play a few more times…
