"[The Color Wheel is] the cinema of the future, I hope."—Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, mubi.com

Voted the #1 Best Undistributed film of 2011 by both the Village Voice and indieWIRE critics' polls, The Color Wheel is finally getting a release outside of the film festival circuit. With its own uncomfortable take on comedy (somewhere between Philip Roth and late Jerry Lewis), The Color Wheel follows a brother and sister's hopelessly complicated relationship over the course of a transformative road trip during which their sibling rivalry simmers as they encounter past lovers, crushes, bullies, and classmates. (83 mins., 35mm)

This double feature also offers the rare opportunity to see a film print of Alex Ross Perry’s absurdist debut, Impolex. Sent to Germany months after the end of World War II to locate two unexploded German rockets, an American soldier gets lost in the woods and encounters a perplexing cast of characters from his past. The director describes the film as "an unjustifiable blend of the bare bones realism of John Ford’s WWII documentaries and the glorious stupidity of Abbot and Costello." (73 mins., 35mm)
