The Men of Dodge City
Mar 22 - Mar 28, 2013
(Nandan Rao, USA, 2011, Blu-ray, 94 min)
Director in Attendance Friday!
The men of Dodge City are not quite men yet. J., Zach and Ben, three young friends transplanted to Detroit with the aspiration of transforming an abandoned cathedral-sized church into a lively arts space, are trying hard to articulate their enthusiasm and noble ideas. All the while they play, flirt, tell stories and struggle to define themselves with their grand schemes. Filmed in the winter, the physical space in The Men of Dodge City—the church, in all its beauty and decrepitude—is a character of its own. The film moves, joyfully, in small steps, rewarding the audience with thoughtful and charming characters, confident cinematography and stunningly beautiful location. Winner of our Jury Award for Best Feature at Local Sightings Festival 2012.
