This week is a great time for films showing off the beaten path.
On Thursday, the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art is screening In a Dream, a documentary by Jeremiah Zagar about his father Isaiah (pictured), who has created more than 50,000 square feet of mosaic murals in Philadelphia over the last four decades. Jeremiah examines the man as an artist and husband, warts and all.
On Friday, Caritas Village is screening a rough cut of the film 100 Lives, the debut from local actor Phil Darius Wallace. The story focuses on how a man copes with the murder of his 4-year-old daughter.
Over at Power House on Wednesday, you can catch 12 movies for the price of none with the free-admission Indie Memphis Micro Cinema Club, featuring the best shorts from the 35th Northwest Film & Video Festival, representing the state of filmmaking in the Pacific Northwest. What do they chain the women to in movies made in Portland? Zines and microbrews?
The Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library continues its Wider Angle Film Series with a screening of Eldorado, also on Wednesday. Belgian Bouli Lanners writes, directs, and stars in Eldorado, about two loners who go on an unlikely road trip. The film is in French with English subtitles.
