Back Alley Film Series has announced its lineup through summer at Carolinas Crownpoint Cinemas, and it is…uncategorizable. But with BAFS, that’s the point.
Annual memberships to Charlotte Film Society cost $10; those entitle you to buy $5 tickets for BAFS screenings. (Those tickets cost $10 for non-members.) You’ll get details at charlottefilmsociety.org.
Here’s the lineup:
“Sightseers,” June 13: A dream tour of rural towns in England goes bizarrely awry in this dark comedy from director Ben Wheatley.
“Berberian Sound Studio,” June 27: Toby Jones plays a sound engineer for an Italian film studio who finds his life imitating art as he works on a horror movie.
“Maniac,” July 11: Elijah Wood plays the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store who becomes unhealthily obsessed with a young artist.
“V/H/S/2,” July 18: Two investigators discover a cache of horrific videocassettes that may yield clues to a student’s disappearance.
“Adjust Your Tracking,” Aug. 7: Speaking of VHS, this documentary tracks the culture surrounding modern videocassette collectors. Dan Kinem and/or Levi Peretic, the producer-directors, will attend.
“Prince Avalanche,” Aug. 29: David Gordon Green adapted and directed this drama about highway workers (Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch) who spend a summer away from the city and their women and find their personalities changing.
