Sept 23rd : MEMORIA
The 2022 PROXY Fall Series of outdoor cinema kicks off on Friday, September 23rd at the PROXY Community Walk-in Theater with:
Directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul, 2021 [PG]
“Memoria demands patience and attention… An emotionally wrenching and intellectually fulfilling experience, but not one (that) can be easily summariz(ed) or classifi(ed).” – A.O. Scott, New York Times
This special showing of Memoria is part of an experimental film tour, traveling around the country one city and theater at a time. This event is a unique opportunity to see this film – showing one night only outdoors in San Francisco!
From the mind of director Apichatpong Weerasethakul comes this adaptation of his own experiences in the Colombia jungle. Starring Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton, this film is a bewildering drama about a Scottish woman, who, after hearing a loud ‘bang’ at daybreak, begins experiencing a mysterious sensory syndrome while traversing the jungles of Colombia. An auditory and psychological experience, this film is an artwork to be enjoyed ephemerally and eternally only on the big screen.
Presented by HERE FOR NOW, the FREE, Friday evening film screenings begin at dusk with ‘doors’ opening at 6:00 pm.
Come early to claim a good spot, enjoy an ice-cold beer from Fort Point Beer Company wine from Fig & Thistle (all proceeds support outdoor cinema at PROXY!) and delicious fare from a local food truck!
At PROXY, we celebrate diversity both on the screen, behind the camera, and in the audience. Ensuring access to all in our community is a priority. Our screenings are relaxed gatherings and film will include subtitles. If you have specific needs, reach out to email@example.com!
