Independent Film Night - Thursday, April 14th @ 6:30: "Bad Day To Go Fishing" a film by Álvaro Brechner

Join us for our ongoing Independent Film Series in partnership with Film Movement. Up next is  Bad Day to go Fishing a film by Álvaro Brechner. Thursday, April 14th @ 6:30PM. Jacob van Oppen – formerly the “strongest man on earth,” now a washed up alcoholic—and his crafty manager, Orsini, make good money staging bogus wrestling matches in small South American towns. When this oddball duo arrives in the unassuming village of Santa Maria, crafty, Orsini, is sure he can find the right opponent to throw the fight, but fishing in Santa Maria yields a bigger catch than he’d hoped for. Jordan Mintzer in Variety said “Álvaro Brechner’s ambitious debut is something like a retro ‘The Wrestler’ by way of the Cohen Brothers.” The film is in Spanish with English subtitles.
