More Good News For Boston Moviegoers
Yet another cinematic event will be hitting the Boston area in the month of September in the form of resfest 2004, an international celebration of digital film. resfest is packed with films that are a little quirkier and “underground” than those being screened at the more mainstream Boston Film Festival, showcasing everything from shorts to music videos to graphic design projects.
Of particular interest this year is a program entitled “Bushwacked,” collecting twenty politically charged (and apparently all left-leaning) films, including one by Michael Moore entitled “Boom.” Another highlight is likely to be a retrospective on the work of music video director Jonathan Glazer, who has directed videos for such varied musicians as Radiohead, Jamiroquai, and UNKLE, as well as commercials for Levi’s and VW.
resfest 2004 takes over the Brattle Theater in Cambridge from September 17-19.
Also of interest to movie fans, today starts the two-week limited run of Donnie Darko: The Director’s Cut at the Brattle. Fans of the film know this is an opportunity not to be missed, and those who are unfamiliar with Richard Kelly’s amazing film are in for a treat.
