THURSDAY, August 21st, 7pm in the Blue Room
Dir. Raya Martin and Mark Peranson
Dually a tribute to, and criticism of, Dennis Hopper's 1971 masterpiece THE LAST MOVIE, this co-directorial effort between the prolific Filipino filmmaker Raya Martin (HOW TO DISAPPEAR COMPLETELY) and Cinema Scope Magazine founding editor Mark Peranson is, like its point of inspiration, a frenzied experiment in narrative and cultural discourse. Alex Ross Perry (director of 2011 hit THE COLOR WHEEL) stars as an egomaniacal American director traveling to Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula in hopes of exposing the world's last remaining celluloid film stock at the site of the new Mayan age of enlightenment. But like Hopper before him, the implications of his journey are far greater than he imagined.
There will be a Q&A via Skype with co-director Raya Martin following the screening. For more information, visit the ticket page.
