Local boy made good, Bridger Zadina, live!

On Friday, Sept. 9, at 7:15 p.m., Zinema 2 presents the new coming-of-age picture directed by Aza Jacobs, Terri. The film stars John C. Reilly as a school principal who shepherds the wayward.

Terri (Jacob Wysocki) is having a hard time. His Uncle is  more or less comatose and  he suffers a ton of ridicule from his classmates due to his weight problem. Chad, played by Duluth’s own Bridger Zadina plays Terri’s miscreant sidekick, who has a nasty habit of scratching his scalp.

Lunch Films – March 19

Truly independent films are made from the gut. One day Mike Plante bought a filmmaker friend lunch. Instead of owing him lunch, why not make a film for that same money? They made a napkin contract with rules to follow. Its easy to support a filmmaker, do what you can. A little goes a long way.
Featuring Lunchfilms by Sam Green, Bobcat Goldthwait, Aza Jacobs, Brent Green, Braden King, Naomi Uman and Lee Lynch, Martha Colburn, Randy Walker and Jennifer Shainin, Nick McCarthy, Jake Mahaffy, Sarah Soquel Morhaim, James Graham and Tom Barndt. Zinema 2, March 19. One week only.

Silent film, loud score

So this fellow Ben Christensen was fairly obsessed with a book titled Malleus Maleficarum, written in the 15th century, it was a guide for those doing the holiest of holy work, witch hunting. He proceeded to make one of the spookiest pictures of all time and break the bank while doing so. The film is from 1922 and Tim Kaiser will be performing an original score for the picture. We will be showing the truncated version that was cut in the sixties as there are no 35mm prints of the uncut version available to us in the US. Tickets are 10 bux and available here
