KiMo Webcasts Kevin

Famed filmmaker Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy, Dogma) is self-distributing his latest indie effort with a special series of screenings/webcasts this weekend. On Sunday, Sept. 25, the KiMo Theatre will be one of only 50 venues nationwide to feature a screening of Smith’s sarcastic horror thriller Red State followed by a live Q & A webcast with the writer-director himself. The film is described as a politically charged slasher set in Middle America, “where a group of libidinous teens encounters fundamentalists with a sinister agenda.” I’ll be there myself to introduce the show and to help coordinate questions. You can ask Mr. Smith your own burning queries via text message or by a computer linkup at the theater. General admission for the film and webcast is $20 per person. Tickets are available now through Doors open at 4:30 p.m. Screening starts at 5 p.m.

Cinematography, Spanish-Style

Spanish Cinema: Past and Present continues at the National Hispanic Cultural Center this Thursday at 7 p.m. Every week throughout the fall, Instituto Cervantes is presenting another entry in its latest film series. The idea is to show viewers the best in Spanish cinematography—from the ’50s to present day. This Thursday, it’s Luis Buñuel’s sardonic, 1961 religious parable Viridiana. If you want to show off luminous, golden-era Spanish cinematography, this is the one to do it with. Screenings continue on Sept. 29 (1973’s The Spirit of the Beehive), Oct. 6 (1984’s Los Santos Inocentes), Oct. 13 (2002’s En La Ciudad Sin Límites), Oct. 20 (2006’s Un Franco, 14 Pesetas) and Nov. 3 (2006’s ¡Ay, Carmela!). All movies are presented in Spanish with English subtitles at the NHCC’s Bank of America Theater (1701 Fourth SW). Admission is free.
