One night only! September 10th!
Screenvision, in partnership with Phase 4 Films presents DURAN DURAN UNSTAGED on September 10th at 7:30pm. This one time concert presentation is directed by David Lynch.

Directed with a kinetic visual intensity that makes it easily recongizable as a David Lynch creation, DURAN DURAN UNSTAGED is quite unlike any concert doc ever put on screen- it's a dream collaboration that presents the band's energy and Lynch's playful interventions on the grand scale they so uniquely merit.

ERROL MORRIS: A LIGHTNING SKETCH
One night only - September 11th
ERROL MORRIS: A LIGHTNING SKETCH is a back door documentary. Filmmakers Charles Musser and Carina Tautu travel to Fourth Floor Productions to interview Errol Morris in lieu of a personal appearance. They find him still depressed from the harsh critical reception of his documentary STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE, but also from the senseless and unexpected death of his former editor, Karen Schmeer.
The melancholic mood is sublimated by a whirlwind of activity: a phone interview with V.S. Ramachandran, preparing his NY Times blog on anosognosia for publication, and the finishing of TABLOID. Their efforts take an unexpected twist as the pervading mood of despair finally begins to lift

Opens September 12th!
A strange singer with ‘god given talent’ drifts through the mythic city of Memphis under its canopy of ancient oak trees, shattered windows and burning spirituality.
Surrounded by lovers, legends, hustlers, preachers, and a wolfpack of kids, the unstable performer avoids the recording studio and is driven to spend time in his own form of self-discovery. Shown in fragments, his journey drags him from love and happiness right to the edge of another dimension.
Featuring an explosive performance and score from Willis Earl Beal, MEMPHIS is a film steeped in folklore, music, surrealism, and the abstract search for glory.
