2019 PROXY Spring Series: THE LAST RACE
The 2019 PROXY Spring Series of outdoor cinema continues Friday, May 3rd at the PROXY Walk-In Theater with:
THE LAST RACE
Directed by Michael Dweck, 2018 [Unrated]
“The Last Race” is a high art film about a blue-collar subject, and that unlooked-for ability to see beauty in the everyday is what makes it both a surprise and a success.
– Kenneth Turran, The L.A. Times
THE LAST RACE is a cinematic portrait of a Long Island stock car race track as its octogenarian owners struggle to maintain an American racing tradition in the face of a real estate development boom. The film merges image, and sound in a unique narrative form to bring the audience into the world of grassroots racing culture and explore a story that subtly grapples with questions of blue collar American identity that have taken on a profound relevance in the current political era.
Presented by HERE FOR NOW, the FREE, Friday evening film screenings begin at dusk with ‘doors’ opening at 6:00 pm. Film begins at sundown around 7:45pm.
