Sometimes it's a one-night deal, and sometimes they stick around for weeks, so when it comes to seeing an independent film at a local theater, planning ahead is crucial.
That's why we've wrangled must-see flicks screening in the Valley this month. Prep your bowl of buttery popcorn and check out our picks ...
5. Eames: The Architect and Painter
AIGA's Arizona chapter presents a screening of this James Franco-narrated documentary about the lives and designs of pivotal modernist innovators Charles and Ray Eames.
See it tonight at Harkins Valley Art at 7 p.m. Tickets are $9.50 for adults. Details here.
4. The Pruitt-Igoe Myth
St. Louis' high-density Pruitt-Igoe housing project remains a symbol of cultural failure resulting from the Housing Act of 1949, out-of-touch design, and misguided efforts to revitalize largely segregated slums. ASU's Phoenix Urban Research Lab presents this documentary screening at PURL's downtown headquarters tonight at 6:30 p.m. Guest speakers include two architecture professors from the university. RSVP here.
3. Native American Micro, Mini Film Festival
Native American filmmakers Razelle Benally and Nana Dalunde will screen two short films, Love Is A Losing Game and Apache Chronicle respectively, at FilmBar on Saturday, December 17, at 9 p.m. Admission is free. Click here for more details. (The clip is from a German festival that will screen Dalunde's film next month, but it includes some scenes from Apache Chronicle.)
