THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

SITA SINGS THE BLUES
DIRECTOR: NINA PALEY
US, 2008

FACULTY PRESENTER: BRENDA GRELL—“Nina Paley drew this full-length musical animation entirely by herself in her home office. Illustrating the parallels between Sita from the ancient Indian Ramayana epic and her own marriage, Paley beautifully animates these stories about love, loyalty, and betrayal in multiple styles ranging from shadow puppetry, cutout drawings, and rotoscoping. This animation is a tour de force with its use of Flash animation and the haunting recordings of Annette Hanshaw. Holding true to contemporary digital culture and the age old practice of storytelling, this animation holds a Creative Common’s license with the explicit purpose of allowing others to share, copy, distribute, and show this film.”—BG. (82 mins.)

School of Film instructor Brenda Grell will introduce the film.

TOUCH OF EVIL
DIRECTOR: ORSON WELLES
US, 1958

FACULTY PRESENTER: KELLEY BAKER—Welles starred and directed in this classic noir thriller about a sinister police detective caught up in mysterious crimes in a sleazy border town. “How do you make an amazing film even better? Get Walter Murch to re-edit the picture and re-do the sound per Orson Welles’ suggestions. I love this film, the cinematography, the lighting, and the performances (okay, Charlton Heston as a Mexican detective is a stretch). I would rent it every year and find something new every time I watched it. Then Walter stepped in and showed us Welles’ true genius. I believe this film blows CITIZEN KANE out of the water, and I’ll tell you why.”—Kelley Baker. (95 mins.)

School of Film instructor Kelley Baker will introduce the film.

AN EVENING OF SHORT FILM GEMS

FACULTY PRESENTER: ROGER MARGOLIS—Tonight we welcome School of Film screenwriting instructor Roger Margolis to introduce some of his favorite short films. The program includes: Canadian animator Chris Landreth’s RYAN (2004, 13 mins.), the story of animator Ryan Larkin’s life and accomplishments in images guaranteed to stun and amaze; Daniel Leflin’s DELUSIONS OF MODERN PRIMITIVISM (1984, 16 mins.), in which a young man seeks meaning and identity through the “newest,” most radical form of body modification; Denis Villeneuve’s NEXT FLOOR (2008, 11 mins.), in which, with just two spoken words, the director mounts a black comic statement on the excesses of the ruling elite, destruction of the environment, and collapse of civilization; and Weijun Chen’s PLEASE VOTE FOR ME (2007, 57 mins.), an unexpectedly intimate glimpse into the world’s most closed society as the Chinese government allows its first ever public school election. (120 mins.)

School of Film instructor Roger Margolis will introduce the screening.
