Screening to feature works by filmmaker Jim Finn

16 Mar

The “Sight Lines: Dialogues in Film and Media” series continues this Thursday with a screening of films by Jim Finn.

Jim Finn’s award-winning movies have been called ‘Utopian comedies.’  His films have screened at Sundance, Rotterdam and other international festivals like AFI and Edinburgh as well as the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid, Danish Film Institute, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Harvard Film Archive. He has had retrospectives in Argentina, Spain, Colombia and Venezuela.

Jim will be in attendance, presenting his 2006 feature Interkosmos, the recent short Dick Cheney in a Cold, Dark Cell, and various other shorts. Check out what International Film Festival Rotterdam had to say about Interkosmos:

The East Germans started in the 1970’s, with their allies, on an ambitious, secret project to colonise the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. You didn’t know that, did you? Finn reveals all: with beautiful archive material, swinging musical numbers in retro-socialist style, beautiful miniature sets, guinea pigs and a dramatic plot theory.

The screening will be held at Hallock Auditorium in the AJ Lewis Center for Environmental Studies at 8pm. It is free and open to the public.
