SF Indiefest: SUN DON'T SHINE & BOUQUET OF PLEASURES & PAIN

Dinner will be after the shorts program at a location chosen by those wishing to stay.

PLEASE NOTE: Admissions are separate, this is NOT a double feature!! Attend one or both.

SUN DON'T SHINE
Amy Seimetz | US, 2012 | 80 min.
In this wondrously accomplished and furiously expressive drama blending the moody rambles of a road movie with the tightly ratcheted criminal tension of a film noir, the director Amy Seimetz, in her first feature, captures the wildly flailing energy and exhausted torpor of grinding frustration as well as the flickering grace of stifled dreams. Her protagonists, Crystal (Kate Lyn Sheil) and Leo (Kentucker Audley), are classic young lovers on the run, driving through rural Florida with a body in the trunk of their car...and things only get worse as they head toward St. Petersburg... Sheil and Audley give performances of harrowing power, their incarnations of blind tenderness and fierce desire building to outbursts of feral rage. –Richard Brody, New Yorker
PROGRAM & TICKET INFO


Bouquet of Pleasures and Pains (shorts program)
Welcome to a delicious variety of expressions on modern love that would have made the ancient Greeks (and their 4 words for love) proud. Seven films of romantic love, love lost, love found, roach love, and everything in between. With Valentine's Day around the corner, fear not–you'll never be alone with this cast of characters. Featuring a wide range of ages and desires, their pleasures and pains might just remind you of a past experience (or two) from your own life.

Your Place or Mine
directed by Jessica Joy Wise | 7 min.
Your Place Or Mine follows the first vital hours when Annie and Danny meet. Will their romance be short-lived or the beginning of lasting love?

Josephine and the Roach
directed by Jonathan Langager | 15 min.
Josephine And The Roach is a surreal, offbeat tale about a cockroach that falls in love with the woman whose apartment he infests. Together, they play beautiful duets on their violin and accordion, only to be interrupted by Josephine’s brutish exterminator husband.

Subway Silk
directed by Jill Clark | 5 min.
A steamy vision of love on a subway train in NYC. The film is part of the New York Subway Film Series, an omnibus collection of films by different directors, based on poems from Token Entry: Poems of the NYC Subway, edited by Gerry LaFemina.

Please Hang Up and Try Again
directed by Eduardo A. Garcia | 15 min.
From the perspective of phone conversations, we follow three lovelorn individuals against the backdrop of a dazzling city, filled with bright and lush colors. One person seeks to end a relationship, the second longs for a past love, and the third initiates a new relationship.

Love in Therapy
directed by Mariko Takai | 9 min.
An aging psychiatrist struggles with her emotions as she decides whether to terminate her relationship with a younger man. Can love transcend age?

Winter Shower
directed by Kyoungju Kim | 15 min.
An eighty-year-old woman goes on journey after receiving a long, awaited letter from a past lover. Winter Shower is a meditative statement on loneliness and coming to terms with the unchangeable past.

Vena Amoris (Vein of Love)
directed by Armando Hermosilla | 16 min.
James is a successful and attractive businessman who will be married tomorrow, but first he must resist a beautiful temptress and endure torture at the hands of his fiancé’s father. Will James’ love be strong enough to reach his wedding day?

    Do you recommend buying tickets online ahead of time, or can we just show up at the doo?. I want to see the shorts, and maybe another film or two afterwards....

      Indiefest shows are a crap shoot... some screenings sell out, others have minimal viewers. I can never figure out what the key is tho.
      I am buying my tix in advance. If you know you're going to go for sure, I'd suggest you do.
      I don't know if that helps or not.

    I just joined and don't yet know the protocol. Can I bring a guest?

    February 9, 2013

    • Lee

      Yes, you can bring a guest. No specific protocol, but always make sure you are cognizant of whether an event may sell out. RSVPing to one of our events doesn't guarantee a ticket.
