GÜEROS

June 3 @ 5:00 pm6:45 pm
Plaza de Oro Theatre,
371 Hitchcock Way, Santa Barbara, CA 93105 United States

The title of this Mexican New Wave homage, shot in shimmering black and white, references blond or light-skinned Mexicans. Two brothers, Tomás and Sombra (one lighter in complexion than the other) and their pal Santos, knock around Mexico City, dropping in and out of the student protest movement that’s closed down the university, and visiting one of its leaders, Ana, a gamine beauty reminiscent of Jeanne Moreau in JULES AND JIM or Anna Karina in any number of Godard movies from the ’60s. Whether quoting Rilke or Derrida or pursuing a mysterious musician “w…

Recently divorced, newly rich, and utterly miserable, Danny (Kevin Corrigan) would seem to be the perfect test subject for a definitive look at the relationship between money and happiness. Danny’s well-funded ennui is interrupted by a momentous trip to the local gym, where he meets self-styled guru/owner Trevor (Guy Pearce) and irresistibly acerbic trainer Kat (Cobie Smulders). Soon, their three lives are inextricably knotted, both professionally and personally. Writer/director Andrew Bujalski (Computer Chess, 2013) returns with a fun, intimate fable that’s utt…

A PIGEON SAT ON A BRANCH REFLECTING ON EXISTENCE

June 24 @ 5:00 pm6:40 pm
Plaza de Oro Theatre,
371 Hitchcock Way, Santa Barbara, CA 93105 United States

Like his previous features SONGS FROM THE SECOND FLOOR and YOU, THE LIVING, master Swedish director Roy Andersson takes up the theme of “being a human being” with this meticulously crafted, dreamlike black comedy. Sam and Jonathan, a pair of hapless novelty salesman, take us on a kaleidoscopic tour of the human condition in reality and fantasy, unfolding in absurdist episodes: a sing-along at a 1940s beer hall, a randy flamenco teacher, a thirsty King Charles XII of Sweden en route to battle, and a diabolical metaphor for the horrors inflicted by European coloni…
