Wondering why times are missing?


Underground film and video artist Jim Finn uses some garishly cheap models and an ear-opening kraut rock soundtrack to create this faux "found footage" documentary about a '60s Soviet program to colonize the moons of Jupiter. The film features little dialogue and a minimal plot, but--with its stoic romancism, its straight-faced humor and its Busby Berkeley-inspired musical numbers--becomes a hypnotic tone poem of which Major Tom himself would be proud. Filmmaker Jim Finn will be at the theater in person both nights. 71 minutes
