2/9 This Film Is Not Yet Rated
Location: Fools Foundation - 1025 19th St. Off of K St, between 19th and 20th, next to the back-end of Old Spaghetti Factory. 7:00 PM. Admission: $5.00.
If you see movies, you really need to see this. Oscar-nominated director Kirby Dick set out to lift the veil on the practices and membership of the MPAA and documented the whole thing. Hiring a PI, they worked to uncover the innermost secrets of the workings of the MPAA, and to expose just how much films have to be altered to fit their whims, paying particular attention to how an NC-17 can essentially be the death of a film. If you see movies, you must see this one! With John Waters, Matt Stone, Kevin Smith, Dan Rather, Darren Aronofsky, Kimberly Peirce, Maria Bello and many more. It does include a minimal amount of material deemed to be NC-17 in it.
And to pair up with this - we're giving you one more chance to see the hilarious 1997 Shock Productions (producers of “Strangers With Candy”) short film “Shock Asylum” with Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello and written by Dan and Paul Dinello with Stephen Colbert. A twisted black comic tale of a routine psychological examination gone horribly awry!
We are doing regular weekly film screenings with Fools Foundation on Fridays at 7 PM and Sundays at 3 PM - most are $5 (unless otherwise noted in advance), and will have filmmakers out from time to time.
