The Louisville Film Society continues to offer alternatives to main stream cinema with four screenings in the next week. In addition to Karsh IS History at the Speed Art Museum, which was highlighted in a previous article, LFS is showing Sita Sings the Blues, Dirt: The Movie and Sabrina.
Sita Sings the Blues will be shown at 21c museum on Tuesday, March 16 at 8 P.M. and is free and open to the public. Sita is an animated film that was created and produced, single-handedly, by Nina Paley. The film is an open distribution film which means you don't need permission to view it as long as you adhere to the Share Alike License. We should applaud Nina for sharing her talent with the world and not waiting for a big payday.
Dirt: The Movie will be shown at Fern Creek High School on Thursday, March 18 at 3:30 and 6 P.M. The film is free and open to the public. Dirt was voted Best Documentary in the 2009 Visions Voices Environmental Film Festival and tells the story of the lack of appreciation for our soil. This Discovery Channel-esque film features a collage of soil experts from across the globe discussing the wonder and benefits of their favorite subject.
Sabrina is being shown at the Speed Art Museum on Friday, March 19 at 6 P.M. as part of their Yousuf Karsh exhibit. The film is free for LFS and Speed members and $10 for non-members. For those uninformed, Sabrina is a classic from Billy Wilder that stars Audrey Hepburn, William Holden and Humphrey Bogart. There may not be 4 more impressive names on any screen credit list, ever.
