    BORDER RADIO w/ Chris D.

    9:00 pmVan City Theatre, Vancouver Canada

    Border-Radio

    Before carving out a niche as one of the most distinct voices in nineties American cinema, Allison Anders made her debut, alongside codirectors and fellow UCLA film school students Kurt Voss and Dean Lent, with 1987’s Border Radio. A low-key, semi-improvised post-punk diary that took four years to complete, Border Radio features legendary rocker Chris D., of the Flesh Eaters, as a singer/songwriter who has stolen loot from a club and gone missing, leaving his wife (Luanna Anders), a no-nonsense rock journalist, to track him down with the help of his friends (John Doe of the band X; Chris Shearer). With its sprawling Southern Californian and Mexican landscapes, captured in evocative 16mm black and white, Border Radio is a singular, DIY memento of the indie film explosion in America.

    Intro and Q&A with Chris D. and programmer and film writer Kier-La Janisse.

    "Quite simply is one of the best movies ever made about the world of rock music." Kevin Thomas, LA Times

    It’s the return of the Saturday Morning All-You-Can-Eat Cereal Cartoon Party, with an ALL NEW show curated by film programmer, writer and pop culture connoisseur Kier-La Janisse! It’s that special time when kids and kids-at-heart get to relive the exciting Saturday Morning ritual of non-stop retro cartoons, and binge on the multi-colored sugary cereals that used to be a part of every “balanced” breakfast! As always, this 3-hour trip into the weird and wonderful world of yesteryear’s animated antics will be accompanied by an all-you-can eat buffet of cereal that is open throughout the show (and yes, there will be non-dairy options too!). The cartoon lineup is always a mystery, but you’ll see both faves and obscurities spanning the 40s through the 80s, all punctuated with vintage commercials and PSAs! So get ready for a sugar rush and an explosion of nostalgia all wrapped up in one candy-coated package.
