Legends of music and movies unite as Jane's Addiction rocker Perry Farrell joins acclaimed director Gus Van Sant for a double screening of films by both artists. Van Sant crafted such contemporary classics as Good Will Hunting and Milk, but he first made a name for himself with the 1989 indie hit Drugstore Cowboy, which also put a young Matt Dillon on the map. It'll show alongside Farrell's cult comedy-nightmare Gift, for which the quirky singer-songwriter paused from belting out alternative hits like "Been Caught Stealing" to pair live footage of his band with hallucinatory fictional vignettes scored by the likes of Sly and the Family Stone. It's a rare opportunity to not only see two obscure underground cinematic gems on the big screen, but discuss them with their makers, who will engage in an audience talk-back in between films.
