The Bad Batch—SNEAK PREVIEW SCREENING!

  1. Friday, February 24, 2017 6:30 p.m.
The Bad Batch
Set in a dystopian Texas of the future, The Bad Batch is a “post-apocalyptic cannibal love story,” as writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour describes it, “Road Warrior meets Pretty in Pink with a dope soundtrack.” This genre-breaking thrill ride won the Special Jury Prize at the 2016 Venice Film Festival and features a dream-ensemble cast of Suki Waterhouse, Jason Momoa, Keanu Reeves, Giovanni Ribisi, Jim Carrey, and Diego Luna. The film opens later in 2017. Director Ana Lily Amirpour is scheduled to be present. (2K DCP Presentation)

NEON
Special thanks to Tom Quinn and Tim League of NEON, a new independent distribution company that opened this year with a great line-up of films for 2017 releases. Upcoming releases include The Bad Batch, Beach Rats (directed by Eliza Hittman), Roxanne Roxanne (directed by Michael Larnell), Ingrid Goes West (directed by Matt Spicer) and Colossal (directed by Nacho Vigalondo), which opens on April 7.

Ana Lily Amirpour
Named one of Filmmaker Magazine’s “25 New Faces of Independent Film” in 2014, Ana Lily Amirpour is an Iranian-American director, writer, producer, and actor who is most known for her feature-film debut, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, an “Iranian vampire spaghetti western” that rocked the Sundance Film Festival in 2014. Born in England and settled in Bakersfield, Calif., she attended art school at San Francisco State University and graduated from UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television. Amirpour has been making films since she was 12 years old: “I make films to make friends,” “It’s just me, lonely, trying to figure out how to be a human being.” The Bad Batch is her second feature.
