Film Interview

The Art of War

An interview with writer-director Kim Nguyen of the Academy Award-nominated drama War Witch

Writer-director Kim Nguyen’s deeply affecting drama War Witch spent most of last year on the film fest circuit. Boasting beautiful cinematography and patient artistry, Nguyen’s flick doesn’t merely tell the tale of 12-year-old Komona, an African girl forced into becoming a child soldier. It envelops the audience in an entire world, playing out like a horror film set in paradise. Alibi was lucky enough to speak with the French-Canadian filmmaker prior to the film’s New Mexico premiere.

Reel World

You’re all probably aware of the fact that the new film Star Trek Into Darkness opens on May 10. If you can’t wait that long for a Trek fix, though, Fathom Events is having a special screening tonight of the much-loved “Star Trek: The Next Generation” episode “The Best of Both Worlds.” This two-part episode (the one where Picard becomes a Borg) has been edited together and digitally restored—with new CGI effects. The event gets underway at 7 p.m. at Rio 24, Cottonwood 16 and Downtown 14 theaters. Tickets are available at the box office or through Fathom Events.
