First show: May 03

Director, producer, writer and actress Marcia Kimpton in-person Q&A Sunday, May 5 following the 1PM screening.

Set in Thailand, BARDO BLUES follows Jack as he struggles to learn the truth about the mother that abandoned him and his own reason for existing. Weaving spiritual awakenings and soulful struggle, BARDO BLUES will leave you questioning everything you think you know about who you are, where you came from and where you’re going.

This is a semi-autobiographical story, and I knew I had to shoot in Thailand because I loved the landscape, the people, the food, and Buddhism. So I went over to Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai for location scouting and to look for Thai actors because I wanted an “East Meets West” multicultural film.”

Kimpton is proud to bring this film to life as it touches on issues close to home because the story is inspired by her brother’s real-life struggles with mental illness.

Directed by Marcia Kimpton. 2018. USA DCP. 85 min
