Zinema 2 and the Duluth Art Institute are again teaming up to present a series of free art films at the theater on Saturday mornings.
The eight-week series starts at 11 a.m. Saturday with "F is For Fake," an almost-documentary about a professional art forger. It was co-written, directed and stars Orson Welles and is his final major piece.
There will be discussions after the screenings.
The lineup includes: "Sketches of Frank Gehry" (March 22), "Cutie and the Boxer" (March 29), "Crumb" (April 5), "Rivers & Tides" (April 12), "The Artist is Present" (April 19), "Roadsworth" (April 26), "Everybody Street" (May 30.
Lineup for Homegrown: Twin Cities Invasion announced
Black Eyed Snakes and Southwire will be part of a small-scale pre-Homegrown Music Festival sample show in April in Minneapolis.
The four-band bill of bands with Duluth ties also includes Low Forms and Portage as part of the Homegrown Music Festival: Twin Cities Invasion on April 18 at the Turf Club. The show is presented by The Current and Radio K. Tickets are $7.
The 16th annual Homegrown Music Festival, which will feature about 200 local bands, is April 27-May 4 at about 30 venues in Duluth and Superior.
Return of the cat vids
After selling out a December screening, Zinema 2 is rerunning the popular Internet Cat Video Festival at 7 p.m. today.
The film festival is a Walker Art Center project that has played -- and attracted thousands of cat-friendly audiences -- for the past two years. The idea was a modest one: To take cat videos from YouTube and screen them IRL and in public.
The quick clips feature cats doing what cats do: licking the hose of a vacuum cleaner, eating watermelon, performing the Harlem Shake.
