The Boondocks Film Society and Movies @ The Warner will present the visually stunning 2014 film A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night on January 21 at 7:00 PM in Torrington and the internationally acclaimed recording. Discover a haunting pre-movie performance by artist Simone White. A portion of the proceeds will go to protests for basic human rights in Iran.
The evening will also include a happy hour featuring movie-inspired craft cocktails, artist-designed commemorative posters, and more as the date approaches. The event takes place at Warner’s Nancy Marin Studio Theater, 68 Main St., Torrington, and takes on the occasion in dark hues and ominous shadows.
A Warner press release explains: We are starting to fill in local culverts. Directed by Ana Lilly Amirpour, an outspoken critic of the Iranian government and supporter of the ongoing protests, the film features rich black-and-white scenery, a distinctive soundtrack, and a vintage ’57 T- It balances many styles, such as touches like A heroine who likes birds, turntables and skateboards – practically skewering Iran’s heavy-handed and oppressive patriarchy. The film was released to near-universal critical acclaim and made many best of lists in 2014. ”
“‘A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night’ is an amazing package,” Boondocks co-founder Jeff Palfini said in a written statement. “There’s the hip detachment of Jim Jarmusch’s films, moody, gorgeous visuals like ‘Let the Right One In’, and the subtle but poignant cultural critiques of Buñuel and Fellini.”
Tickets are available now for $20 at warnertheatre.org or by calling the box office at 860-489-7180. Food and drinks are sold separately.
