Please join us at 8 p.m. on Saturday, November 22nd for a special screening of Nicholas Winding Refn's Drive (2011, 100 minutes) and Rich Devaney's "Patrol" (2014, 15 minutes) at the Chain Theater in Long Island City. By pairing a modern classic with an innovative short from a local filmmaker, Cinema Under the Influence will guide you through an evening exploring the contemporary crime film. The event once again starts with an hour-long reception at 8 p.m. Enjoy delicious Queens Lager complements of our friends at Queens Brewery. Fresh off a triple win (Best Narrative Short, Best Director, Best Cinematography) at 2014's Chain NYC Film Festival, writer/director Devaney's 2014 short "Patrol" will open the evening. The film--shot by acclaimed Norwegian cinematographer Marius Matzow Gulbrandsen and composed entirely of 12 gorgeously photographed set-ups--explores abuses of power during a night in the lives of two NYC police officers. The short will be followed by a raffle offering prizes from outer-borough hotspots like the Museum of the Moving Image, Queens Comfort, Videology, and others. Just like last time, purchasing advance tickets (see below) will enter you into the raffle with two chances, while buying at the door will get you one. For the main feature, we will screen a beautiful, high-definition print of the the much-acclaimed Drive (2011, 100 minutes), a tale of a heist gone wrong, featuring stand-out performances from Ryan Gosling and the Golden Globe-nominated Albert Brooks, as well as an iconic soundtrack from composer Cliff Martinez. The evening will feature a program investigating the films with essays by Edwin Adrian Nieves of the film blog A-BitterSweet-Life, "Patrol" writer/director Rich Devaney, and Dan Mistich of the University of Georgia and Flagpole Magazine. Please join us for this night of crime, beer, stunt driving, and analog synthesizers.
