impressionable minds open widest to the mesmerizing power of
entertainment. Nearly everyone can recall connecting with a show so
completely it feels like a magical world created just for you. But what
if it actually was? James, a bright, sensitive, and very sheltered young
adult still living at home is obsessed with the show Brigsby Bear. One
dramatic night, James learns the show has been cancelled. As his family
frets over his fixation, James decides the show must go on and plans to
become Brigsby Bear's new creator. Starring Kyle Mooney (SNL, Kyle and
Good Neighbor Stuff youtube channel), Mark Hamill, and Jane Adams.
Directed by Dave McCary.
TYPEWRITER is a documentary portrait of artists, writers, and collectors
who remain steadfastly loyal to the typewriter as a tool and a muse. It
also documents the struggles of the company California Typewriter, one
of the last standing repair shops in America dedicated to keeping the
aging machines clicking. The film delivers a thought-provoking
meditation on the changing dynamic between humans and machines, and
encourages us to ponder our relationship with technology, old and new,
as the digital age's emphasis on speed and convenience redefines who's
serving whom, human or machine? Featuring Silvi Alcivar, Ken Alexander,
Tom Hanks, John Mayer, Sam Shepard, and many more. Starting this Friday,
September 22nd at Merrill's Roxy!
