9:30 DANCE PARTY WITH LOCAL PUNK ROCK COVER BAND: remones reduxed (free admission)

HEADING SOUTH: Lead Actress Karen Young will introduce with question and answer session to follow the 35mm screening.

Set in Haiti during the late 1970s and based on stories by Dany Laferriere, the heat comes not only from the summertime tropical setting. Charlotte Rampling, Karen Young, and Louise Portal head a group of single middle-aged women who have come for sun, fun, and romance. They desire the solicitous attention of attractive young Haitian men, and teenaged Legba (Menothy Cesar, winner of the Marcello Mastroianni Award at the Venice Film Festival) is an especially prized companion for whom the women vie. “A gem…a beautifully written, seamlessly directed film with award-worthy performances by Ms. Rampling and Ms. Young”—(Stephen Holden, New York Times). In English and in French with English subtitles. Unrated. 108 Min.
