Presented by The DocYard
Picked by: Alma



Wednesday, September 12 at 5:00, 9:30
Picked by: Greg, Brandon, Cardinal
Brandon – Mystery Train has fun performances and a great soundtrack. I once thought it would be a good idea to watch this with my mom and brother. Only I forgot there was a (long) love scene, and the DVD player dropped the subtitles. It was a little awkward.
Cardinal – Japanese couple fights over Elvis versus Cole Porter on their trip in the U.S. Was it Cole Porter? I forget.



Thursday, September 13 at 8:30
Picked by: Alma, Erica, Cardinal
Erica – a well curated program of shorts of which I am proud to be an alum.
Cardinal – films by ladies from many walks of life – good stuff – go.



Friday, September 14 – Thursday, September 20
Theatrical Premiere Engagement!
Filmmaker in Person at Saturday’s 7:00 Show!
Picked by: Alma, Alissa, Jessie, Ivy
Ivy – I love Molly Parker, and try to see everything that comes to the States with her.
