It’s a big night for New Partisan, as we hold our first movie screening at 8:00 sharp this evening at the Bowery Poetry Club, on Bowery just south of Bleecker. We’ll be premiering three beautifully shot films that delve into America’s history and culture:
Our own A.R. Brook Lynn is presenting This Has Been a Moment In History, which features just about the most wonderful FDR cameo imaginable. The multi-talented team of Sal Interlandi and Till Neumann are offering The Bakery, set in 1950s Brooklyn, which, as this trailer makes clear, more than lives up to its name. And Eric Weigel’s WWII film, Gravity, about a German and American soldier stuck, quite literally, in the woods for the night, is, dare I say it, a worthy companion to Hell in the Pacific.
That’s three movies for three dollars in a comfortable venue with a well-stocked and fairly priced bar… We hope to see you there.
