Chlotrudis Thursday Night at the Movies + Indie Film Round-Up, July 30 - August 5

Hello Chlotrudis Members!

DogtoothIt's back to the movie theatre this week! Chris will be hosting the Chlotrudis Thursday Night at the Movies! Join him on Thursday, August 5 for the 7:30pm screening of DOGTOOTH at the Museum of Fine Arts, part of their New Talent to Watch series. Winner of the Un Certain Regard prize at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, DOGTOOTH is a darkly funny look at three teenagers confined to their parents’ isolated country estate, kept under strict rule and regimen. Terrorized into submission by their father, the children spend their days learning an invented vocabulary and living in an absurdist, nightmarish experiment—until a trusted outsider, brought in to satisfy the son’s libidinal urges, starts bringing gifts for the teens. A hyper-stylized mixture of physical violence and verbal comedy, DOGTOOTH’s ruthless satire of middle-class mores heralds the arrival of an important new voice in world cinema. In Greek with English subtitles.


Children of InventionIf you haven't had the opportunity to see CHILDREN OF INVENTION yet, don't miss it at the Museum of Fine Arts as part of the Roxbury International Film Festival on Saturday. This skillfully made local production follows two young children whose mother is detained for several days and they wander into the city to find her. It's got strong performances and assured direction, and this could be the last chance to see it on the big screen.

See you at the Movies!
