A BREAD FACTORY: Part Two
First show: April 28
A community arts center questions if prefab ethos will replace grass-roots culture and, if so, who will care? Tyne Daley in an irrepressible, two- part ode to micropolitan life & DIY arts.
Director Patrick Wang IN PERSON Following the April 28th Screening!
A major filmmaking talent. Wang’s realism is closer to 19th-century literary giants obsessed with daily life & family relationships.” – Hollywood Reporter
“The distinctive premise of Patrick Wang’s new film, “Through bursts of comedy, poignancy, conflict, song, dance, and theatrical whimsy, what emerges is akin to a homespun symphony of soulfulness.”
Part Two: WALK WITH ME A WHILE
Checkford hasn’t been the same since the school board meeting. Mysteriously, the reporter who runs the local newspaper disappears. Bizarre tourists start to show up, then come mysterious tech start-up workers. With all the new people, real estate is booming.
Amidst all these distractions, Dorothea and Greta try to continue their work. They are rehearsing a production of HECUBA by Euripides. On the day they open the play, Dorothea gets the news that the Bread Factory will lose an essential piece of their funding.
The beautiful opening night performance of HECUBA plays to a tiny audience. Brokenhearted, Dorothea and Greta must decide whether to give up their work at the Bread Factory because their community and support has disappeared, or to continue in their struggle to build community through art.
Written & directed by Patrick Wang. With Tyne Daly, Elisabeth Henry, James Marsters, Nana Visitor, Brian Murray, Zachary Sayle & Jessica Pimentel. 2018. DCP. 120 mins.
