| KANSAS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2009
Your chance to see premieres of more than 50 films Sept. 18-24 exclusively at the Glenwood Arts Theatre.
Standout titles include:
* “Capitalism: A Love Story,” Michael Moore’s new documentary that examines the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans and, by default, the rest of the world. This opening-night film combines humor and outrage. Moore has described it as “the perfect date movie.” It has “lust, passion, romance and 14,000 jobs being eliminated every day.” This innocent and forbidden love of an economic system has turned into a nightmare as families have paid the piper with the loss of their homes, investments and life savings.
* “Bright Star,” a drama from writer-director Jane Campion (“The Piano”) based on the brief romance between 19th century poet John Keats and Fanny Brawne, which was cut short by Keats’ death at age 25.
* “A Man With a Movie Camera,” a 1929 silent film depicting a day in the life of a city in the Soviet Union. The Alloy Orchestra returns to provide the musical score accompaniment.
