This week we are very excited to be collaborating with the Filmmakers Collaborative to present to you:
LIVING IN OBLIVION (TOM DiCILLO, 1995)
Divided into three parts, LIVING IN OBLIVION is a comedy-drama revolving around the same film crew and cast who are attempting to make a low-budget independent film - but everything that can go wrong, does go wrong. As time and funds run out and stress builds up, Nick Reve (Steve Buscemi) struggles to finish his film.
LIVING IN OBLIVION is considered by many as the ultimate tribute to independent filmmakers and is the perfect film for filmmakers and filmlovers alike. Inspired by the real life struggles of the director Tom DiCillo, it went on to win the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at Sundance. This film also stars Peter Dinklage in his feature film debut!
As usual, there will be FREE PIZZA and drinks provided!
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE: After the screening at ~4pm, we'll be heading down to the Shaw Davey Slum (5 mins walk from uni) for FREE BEER/CIDER & CHIPS and a chat about films and filmmaking - just follow the committee after the screening!
