Now playing FLIPSIDE… (Tickets at link in bio, or

When filmmaker @chriswilcha revisits the record store he worked at as a teenager in New Jersey, he finds the once-thriving bastion of music and weirdness from his youth slowly falling apart and out of touch with the times. FLIPSIDE documents his tragicomic attempt to revive the store while revisiting other documentary projects he has abandoned over the years. This disparate collection of stories coheres into something strange and expansive — a moving meditation on music, work, and the sacrifices and satisfaction of trying to live a creative life.

Join us this Saturday, June 15th for
“Panic Like It’s 1999: Crisis in Turn of the Century Cinema” led by Claire Sisco King, chair of Cinema and Media Arts at Vanderbilt University


The year 1999 was a very strange time in our lives.
It was a watershed moment in cinema history. The movies saw several industry-changing developments, including the move to fully computer-animated films in the TOY STORY franchise and the use of bullet time in THE MATRIX films. These developments within the cinema were paralleled by other technological advancements — including the birth of the Blackberry and the continued expansion of the Internet. In turn, these changes inspired stylistic and narrative innovations in films like RUN LOLA RUN and BEING JOHN MALKOVICH. This seminar will address a spectrum of changes and innovations in the cinema of 1999 and their relationship to each other — considering both the context from which these changes emerged and their implications for the cinema of the 21st century.
