"How charming and fantastic, so full of rare atmospheres."--GUY MADDIN

Bursting with inventiveness and dry humor, Interkosmos is one of the most visionary independent films in recent memory. At first glance, Jim Finn's debut feature, Interkosmos, appears to be a documentary about the East German space program's failed attempts to establish socialist colonies on the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. Closer inspection reveals it to be a loving recreation of 1970's fashions and film techniques, interspersed with deadpan musical numbers set to Krautrock-inspired music by Jim Becker of Califone, Colleen Burke of Smog, and Jim White of Dirty Three. (71 mins., video) Tonight's program begins with Finn's short films el guero (3 mins., 2001), wustenspringmaus (3 mins., 2002), el valiente (4 mins., 2004), and la ardilla (2 mins., 2005).
