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.

Bothersome Man
DIRECTOR: JENS LIEN
NORWAY
In this darkly comic, surreal fable Lien challenges a worldview that holds acquisition, conformity and order as paramount, and sees individuality and emotion as unnecessary distractions. Forty–year–old Andreas steps off a bus into a strange city, with no memory of how he got there. It all seems familiar: people are polite, go to work, have dinner parties, go out and have sex, but no one seems to connect, create anything or even enjoy themselves. Similarly, the food tastes of nothing and the alcohol doesn't get you drunk, houses are perfectly planned, decorated and kept, but nowhere feels like home. A true fish out of water, Andreas' awkwardness as he tries to find his place in this world is painfully funny. Unsurprisingly, Andreas soon decides to try and find a way out, with his ever more desperate actions compounding the black slapstick humor of this piece. What is this place where bland good taste is held to be the highest social value? ( 95 min )


Filmography: Jonny Vang (03).
