JULY 6th – SLACKER

Slacker is a uniquely structured and seemingly plotless film, following a single day in the life of an ensemble of mostly under-40 bohemians and misfits in Austin, Texas. The film follows various characters and scenes, never staying with one character or conversation for more than a few minutes before picking up someone else in the scene and following them.

JULY 13th – MYSTERY TRAIN (Close Quarters)

The film consists of three stories that take place on the same night in downtown Memphis. The three stories are linked together by the Arcade Hotel, a run-down flophouse presided over by the night clerk (Screamin’ Jay Hawkins) and bellboy (Cinqué Lee), where the principal characters in each story spend a part of the night.
