PROJECT 5

Ask me anything   The best of indie filmmaking and innovative film events at The Little Theatre, Rochester, N.Y.

Project 5 is an all-encompassing term for events and programming in Theatre 5 at The Little. We will strive to bring independent cinema to The Little that would otherwise not be seen in the Rochester area. Films with limited or no distribution and series devoted to the independent spirit will be showcased with unique monthly/weekly series and special events. We will do rotating showings of these films and also "one night only" events. Project 5 will embody the spirit of collaboration as we reach out to local colleges, art galleries, film festivals, and non-profits to foster programming that engages the Rochester community on new levels.

Set in the strange and oppressive emotional landscape of the year 1983, Beyond The Black Rainbow is a Reagan-era fever dream inspired by hazy childhood memories of midnight movies and Saturday morning cartoons.

From the producer of Machotaildrop, Rainbow is the outlandish feature film debut of writer and director Panos Cosmatos. Featuring a hypnotic analog synthesizer score by Jeremy Schmidt of Sinoia Caves and Black Mountain.

Falling Overnight tells the story of twenty-two year old Elliot Carson on the day before he has surgery to remove a brain tumor. Facing what could be his last night, Elliot’s path intersects with Chloe Webb, a young photographer who invites him to her art show. Elliot welcomes the distraction and as the night descends, Chloe takes him on an intimate and exhilarating journey through the city. But as morning approaches, and Chloe learns of Elliot’s condition, the magic of the evening unravels, and they must together face the uncertainty of Elliot’s future.

Rochester Premiere! Plus a Skype Q&A with writer, producer, director Alex Ross Perry! Bonus!

JR has broken up with her professor. She enlists her nervous and obnoxious younger brother Colin to take a short road trip in order to help move out her belongings. They bicker and fight, with one another and pretty much anybody they encounter, before being brought to a place of togetherness and understanding as a result of being pushed away by everybody in their lives except one another.

Seductive, fearless, and outrageous, Marina Abramovic has been redefining what art is for nearly forty years. Using her own body as a vehicle, pushing herself beyond her physical and mental limits––and at times risking her life in the process––she creates performances that challenge, shock, and move us. Through her and with her, boundaries are crossed, consciousness expanded, and art as we know it is reborn. She is, quite simply, one of the most compelling artists of our time.

“Breathtaking…Extraordinary. The movie’s power as a potent secondhand art high is damned near peerless.” – David Fear, Time Out New York

“A moving and masterfully constructed exploration of what makes art—or anything else—worth doing in the first place.” – Andrew O’Hehir, Salon.com

Click the link above for details about the film!

In 1991 Jeffrey Dahmer was arrested in Milwaukee and sentenced to 957 years in prison for killing 17 people and dismembering their bodies. ‘Jeff’ explores the city of Milwaukee by meeting those surrounding Dahmer during and after his hidden spree. Recollections from Milwaukee Medical Examiner Jeffrey Jentzen, Police Detective Patrick Kennedy, and neighbor Pamela Bass are interwoven with archival footage and everyday scenes from Dahmer’s life, working collectively to disassemble the facade of an ordinary man leading an ordinary existence.

“Thompson’s slow-burn peppering of information is deeply unsettling, and his examination of three scarred minds that Dahmer left behind is far more affecting than any attempt to empathize with the killer would have been.” — Phil Brown, DorkShelf.com

“I’d go so far as to say that Jeff is one of the greatest serial killer movies ever made” — John Gholson, Movies.com
