Radio Dreams

Fri. 6/16 - Thurs. 6/29

(NR) 1 Hr. 33 Min. (Digital) In English and Farsi with English subtitles (Comedy, Drama)

In this film festival favorite, a brilliant and misunderstood writer struggles to pursue his ambitious goal of bringing together Metallica and Kabul Dreams, Afghanistan’s first rock band. Hamid (actor/musician Mohsen Namjoo) immigrates to the U.S. to pursue his writing career and the American Dream. Instead, he winds up working at a small radio station. When the station’s owners try to cash in on the only program Hamid produces that will deliver commercial success-- bringing together an on-air jam session with Kabul Dreams and their long-time idols, Metallica—a hilarious collision ensues between artistic integrity and crass commercialism.

Slack Bay

Fri. 6/16 - Fri. 6/23

(NR) 2 Hrs. 2 Min. (Digital) In French with English subtitles (Comedy)

The bourgeois and extremely eccentric Van Peteghem family--among them Juliette Binoche, Fabrice Luchini, and Valeria Bruni Tedeschi--have settled in for another summer at their cliff-top villa overlooking the picturesque Slack Bay. Their leisurely rhythm of sunbathing and seaside constitutionals is soon interrupted by the arrival of two bumbling inspectors investigating a string of tourists gone missing. As the macabre mysteries mount and love blossoms between the family's genderqueer teen and the son of a local fisherman, Binoche and company ratchet the slapstick up to 11. It's no wonder director Bruno Dumont (Li'l Quinquin, Camille Claudel 1915) cites Peter Sellers, Monty Python, and Laurel and Hardy as cinematic influences for his delightful foray into winking, absurdist farce.
