Chan-wook Park’s vampire thriller “Thirst” is coming to minneapolis (and probably a theater near you non-minneapolis dwellers, as well)
but the controversy over Korea’s censorship of the “priest turns vampire after failed medical experiment (?!)” film trailers & press images is overshadowing the film itself.. see the different trailer versions and learn more about the censorship here
thirst will open at the lagoon theater on september 4th, 2009

take-up productions & Sound Unseen are bringing minneapolis a great opportunity to view the controversial and award winning sxsw hit, RIP: A Remix Manifesto [click to view the film trailer] on the big screen..
In RiP: A remix manifesto, Web activist and filmmaker Brett Gaylor explores issues of copyright in the information age, mashing up the media landscape of the 20th century and shattering the wall between users and producers.
to boot – the film will be screened in minneapolis’ newest cool film venue – the Trylon screening room… “The Trylon is a small experimental cinema, and is equiped for both digital cinema and 35mm film presentations.”
when: Thursday May 28 at 8pm
where: The Trylon screening room (3258 Minnehaha Ave)
Tickets: $5 (or punch card) – since the theater only seats 60, best get your tickets now
head down to the riverview theater and catch the 3rd (and final) debate between Senators Obama and McCain with hundreds of like-minded strangers (ok i’m assuming.. if you’re heading to the riverside to see a presidential debate = you’re like-minded)
of course, it would probably be more productive to watch the debate with your parent(s) or some “undecided” friend/co-worker and do your part to covert them… but so much more enjoyable to get riled up with a mob that agrees with you
the show starts at 8pm on wednesday, they’re waiving the usual $3 admission fee and it runs for 90 minutes.. which means you can make it to the triple rock before the free bacon is gone (unless you have a job, in which case there’s just enough time to get home and catch the daily show / colbert report)
. . .
if you are not yet registered to vote – tomorrow is the last day to pre-register..
