12 Mar 2007
Repo Man
Free Screening

Wednesday, Mar 14

Frustrated punk rocker Otto quits his supermarket job after slugging a co-worker, and is
later dumped by his girlfriend at a party. Wandering the streets in frustration, he is
recruited in the repossession of a car by a repo agent. After discovering his parents
have donated his college fund to a televangelist, he joins the repossession agency
(Helping Hand Acceptance Corporation) as an apprentice "repo man". During his training,
he is introduced into the mercenary and paranoid world of the drivers, befriended by a
UFO conspiracy theorist, confronted by rival repo agents, discovers some of his one-time
friends have turned to a life of crime, is lectured to about cosmic unconsciousness by
the repo agency grounds worker, and finds himself entangled in a web of intrigue
concerning a huge repossession bounty on a 1964 Chevy Malabu driven by a lunatic
government scientist, with Top Secret cargo in the trunk.

Mar 21: Oktyabr: Ten Days That Shook the World (1928)

In documentary style, events in Petrograd are re-enacted from the end of the monarchy in
February of 1917 to the end of the provisional government and the decrees of peace and of
land in November of that year. Lenin returns in April. In July, counter-revolutionaries
put down a spontaneous revolt, and Lenin's arrest is ordered. By late October, the
Bolsheviks are ready to strike: ten days will shake the world. While the Mensheviks
vacillate, an advance guard infiltrates the palace. Anatov-Oveyenko leads the attack and
signs the proclamation dissolving the provisional government.

Mar 28: Modern Times (1936)

Chaplins last 'silent' film, filled with sound effects, was made when everyone else was
making talkies. Charlie turns against modern society, the machine age, (The use of sound
in films ?) and progress. Firstly we see him frantically trying to keep up with a
production line, tightening bolts. He is selected for an experiment with an automatic
feeding machine, but various mishaps leads his boss to believe he has gone mad, and
Charlie is sent to a mental hospital... When he gets out, he is mistaken for a communist
while waving a red flag, sent to jail, foils a jailbreak, and is let out again. We follow
Charlie through many more escapades before the film is out.

Apr 4: Burnt By the Sun (1994)

Russia, 1936: revolutionary hero Colonel Kotov is spending an idyllic summer in his dacha
with his young wife and six-year-old daughter Nadia and other assorted family and
friends. Things change dramatically with the unheralded arrival of Cousin Dmitri from
Moscow, who charms the women and little Nadia with his games and pianistic bravura. But
Kotov isn't fooled: this is the time of Stalin's repression, with telephone calls in the
middle of the night spelling doom - and he knows that Dmitri isn't paying a social call.
