Easy to find on-street parking, seems like a safe neighborhood. There was a band that played for about an hour beforehand. It's the end of the season so I'll be looking for events from Rooftop for next Spring/summer. They do different themes...continued

Please be warned! This event was falsely advertised. I purchased tickets here on Goldstar with the notion that all tickets were for the rooftop, hence the event description on Goldstar, Rooftop's webpage and the reason I choose to purchase them....continued

The films were great, but the tickets were not for the rooftop section but rather in a lower courtyard---still outside, but not on the roof. This wasn't known at the time of purchase.

Description

*The films:

Le Champ (Lionel Dutrieux | France | 5 min.)*

On the Way to the Sea* (Tao Gu | China | 20 min.)*

On May 12, 2008, the biggest earthquake in Chinese history occurred in the filmmaker’s hometown of Wenchuan. According to official polls, 69,159 were killed, 374,141 were seriously injured and 17,469 are still considered to be missing. The filmmaker’s parents, central characters in the film, are survivors. In a surreal hybrid of documentary footage, experimental abstraction and fictional elements, On the Way to the Sea studies the human fragility and spiritual homelessness generated by such disasters.

*

*_*Get Luder*_* (Johnathan Carr | Scotland | 9 min.)*

Once prolific, celebrated and respected, Brutalist architect Owen Luder now faces up to the demolition of his iconic Get Carter car park, made famous by the Michael Caine gangster film.

_*Storyteller*_* (Nicolas Provost | Brussels, Belgium | 8 min.)*

In Storyteller, Provost recomposes the Las Vegas strip into a slick artificiality reminiscent of science fiction. Provost maneuvers and influences the interpretation of images, carefully balancing the figurative and the abstract. He manipulates time, codes and form, twisting and shaping an experimental sensation that tightly bind visual art and cinematography.

Willis Avenue Bridge Project* (Stephen Mallon | New York | 4 min.)*

All City (Take it to the Bridge)* (Charlie Ahearn | NYC | 7 min.)*

Bushwick hip-hoppers Nine 11 Thesaurus draw a crowd that becomes a spontaneous parade when they break out the music, while crossing the Brooklyn Bridge…

The High Level Bridge* (Trevor Anderson | Canada | 5 min.)*

Trevor drops his camera from Edmonton’s High Level Bridge in memory of those who have jumped. [Sundance]

Ghost Mall* (Nathan Duncan | Austin, TX | 8 min.)*

Ghost Mall is a meditation on a shopping mall in decline. It explores the landscape of a once thriving center of commerce in Austin, TX — Highland Mall.

Broken Doors* (Goro Toshima | Los Angeles, CA | 34 min.)*

In this sharply observed follow up to his 2004 film A Hard Straight, Goro Toshima’s Broken Doors follows a young, homeless couple, struggling to survive on the streets of Hollywood, as they confront one of the biggest challenges of their lives…an unexpected pregnancy. – Big Sky Film Festival
