Jack White's Third Man Records is teaming up with Nashville's cinema institution the Belcourt Theatre to present The Light and Sound Machine, a series of film screenings to take place the third Thursday of each month. The screenings will take place at Third Man Records venue and will be curated and hosted by filmmaker and critic James Cathcart. The Light and Sound Machine series will be presented in digital format and on 16mm. The goal of the events is to provide a space for marginalized cinema, emerging directors, low budget films, rarely screened and experimental films from the past and present. The selected films will include a wide range of genres, like the 2012 feature The Unspeakable Act, to Kidlat Tahimik’s transcultural Perfumed Nightmare from 1977.
The inaugural event took place last Thursday, February 21st featured the anti-comedy Bad Fever from Dustin Guy Defa (2012), preceded by the Safdie Bros.’ The Black Ballon (2012), and acerbic re-imagining of Albert Lamorisse’s classic La Ballon Rouge. For tickets, visit the Belcourt website.
