FREE SAMPLES director Jay Gammill will participate in Q&A after the 7:40 screening Saturday night at the NoHo.
Follow actor J Kimball (Juno, Spider-Man, Up In the Air) as he researches what it’s like to be old for a role in an upcoming movie. When he meets the residents at The Coconuts convalescent home, he quickly discovers that his perceptions of the elderly may be off from today’s reality.
THE GHASTLY LOVE OF JOHNNY director Paul Bunnell will be at the Playhouse 7 for the Friday (May 17) show, along with cinematographer Francisco Bulgarelli and actor Jed Rowen (“Sluggo”). And at the Music Hall 3 on Friday (May 17) will be actors Will Keenan (“Johnny X”) and Les Williams (“Chip”) and costume designer Kristina West. They’ll have free JOHNNY X comic books to give away at both screenings while supplies last.
Paul Bunnell’s 1950s throwback dials up the weirdness of the already surreal genre of sci-fi B movies with show-stopping musical numbers, over-the-top dialogue, and hilariously hokey special effects.
THE SECOND MEETING is about the first two encounters of former American pilot Dale Zelko and former Yugoslav missile officer Zoltan Dani. The first was on radar in 1999, when Dani shot down Zelko’s F-117A stealth attack plane – the only one ever downed in combat — during the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia. The second was 12 years later, during peacetime, when they decided to meet face to face as civilians and friends.
