On Tuesday, April 24th at 7:00 PM, we will be playing The Story of the Weeping Camel. Blurring the line between documentary and narrative, this film observes the fascinating, ancient ceremonies performed by a Mongolian family in order to reestablish the bond between a mother camel and her adorable, scrawny calf.

On Tuesday, April 11th at 7:00 PM, we will be playing The Secret Adventures of Tom Thumb. British animation legends the Bolex Brothers brought their distinctive blend of styles to this eerily beautiful twist on the classic tale of Tom Thumb. Kidnapped by government agents, tiny but fearless Tom must cross paths with all sorts of bizarre creature creatures and malevolent characters to reunite with his family.
