Its been 17 years since we froze the earth. The few remaining humans live on the Snowpiercer, a train on an infinite loop around the globe. For those at the front, its a lavish paradise of drugs and sushi in the lap of luxury; for those trapped in the tail section, life is short and cruel.

But change is in the air. Curtis (Chris Evans), desperate to escape the tail of the train, plans an uprising, aided by his mentor Gilliam (John Hurt). What begins as an isolated riot explodes into a mass revolution, an all-or-nothing push to the front of the train, and a war for humanitys future. Who will live and who will die? How far can they go? Is there hope beyond the frozen wastes?

From Swartzs help in the development of the basic internet protocol RSS to his co-founding of Reddit, his fingerprints are all over the internet. But it was Swartzs groundbreaking work in social justice and political organizing combined with his aggressive approach to information access that ensnared him in a two-year legal nightmare. It was a battle that ended with the taking of his own life at the age of 26. Aarons story touched a nerve with people far beyond the online communities in which he was a celebrity. This film is a personal story about what we lose when we are tone deaf about technology and its relationship to our civil liberties.

Look for Sean wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.

The Dance of Reality is the first film in 23 years made by writer/director Alejandro Jodorowsky, a genuine superstar of the international artistic counter-culture, best known for his cult classics El Topo, The Holy Mountain and Santa Sangre. His eagerly-awaited new film is a sensational, outrageous, surreal, hyper-imaginative magical realist dream autobiography of his difficult childhood growing up in a family of Ukrainian-Jewish immigrants in a small coastal town in Chile (Tocopilla, where the film was shot). His father (played by Jodorowsky’s son Brontis) is harsh and dominating, an idealistic communist who attempts to assassinate a plutocratic general; his big-bosomed, over-protective mother (Pamela Flores), sings all her lines opera-style, often nude. Jodorowsky himself appears as a spirit guide to his youthful self (Jeremias Herskovits). Blending his personal history with metaphor, mythology and poetry, The Dance of Reality reflects Jodorowsky’s philosophy that reality is not objective but rather a “dance” created by our own imaginations. An unforgettable and unique film.

About

The Sunday Night Film Club (SNFC) gets together at a Boston-area theatre every Sunday to watch a film as a group, and then discuss it over dinner and drinks. There is no cost to join the club (other than your ticket and anything you may spend on food/drink afterwards) and there's no obligation to attend every week. It's just a very casual group of people that like film, period.
