The program for our August 16th Retrospective Show presented by The Bearded Child Film Festival has now been finalized!
Curating the program was left completely up to us and we wanted to be sure the show appealed not only to hardcore Candy Eye addicts, but the virgin sampler as well. All our 12 films were considered, not just the blockbusters beloved by Justine Bateman or BUST magazine. The Mallorys movie was instantly deemed too omni-present for the retrospective, Santa Susanna too long, on and on we went until just 4 films remained, woven perfectly into a diverse and delicious program.
The Films of our Very First Retrospective are…
Betsy Benson & The Bowtie Boy(s)
A punky teenager adapts her favorite children’s book about wicked chocolate Easter bunnies into a lo-fi, feel-good film warning against the dangers of self doubt.
A mockumentary/music-video hybrid, Digits tracks the rise and fall of two finger-giving Euro terrorists and their soda-pop sucking foe.
Two foolish suburban girls stumble into a suspicious scheme to become Bollywood stuntwomen in this blackest of comedies.
Famed lovers Bruno and Filippa vanish for 300 nights to conceive the most alluring creation the world had ever known in this Greek-chic movie myth.
