SAN FRANCISCO PREMIERE!
THE PAST IS A GROTESQUE ANIMAL is a personal, accessible look at an artist – Kevin Barnes, frontman of the endlessly versatile indie pop band of Montreal – whose pursuit to make transcendent music at all costs drives him to value art over human relationships. As he struggles with all of those around him, family and bandmates alike, he’s forced to reconsider the future of the band, begging the question – is this really worth it?
Dir: Jason Miller. 2014.
The film begins at 1pm and is 77 mins.

Afterwards, we'll meet to discuss the film and the Enneagram over dinner at a nearby restaurant: Pakwan Indian at[masked]th St San Francisco, CA. This is within easy walking distance from the theater.
Note about experience level: We will use the Enneagram numbers to identify the personality types. If you are new to the system, we strongly advise you to familiarize yourself with the various types and their numbers beforehand in order to better follow the conversation. Introductory information is available on the internet including the Enneagram Institute's "How to Begin with the Enneagram".
