Summer Movie Wednesdays Week Three: Police Beat

Posted by on Tue, Jul 24, 2012 at 10:30 AM

In case you missed or want to see again the first movie I made with Rob Devor, Police Beat, it screens tomorrow (Wed, July 25) at West of Lenin.

The NYT:

Bodies have a way of turning up with alarming regularity in "Police Beat," a delicately funny tale about everyday surrealism. Directed by Robinson Devor and written with Charles Tonderai Mudede, the episodically structured film traces the ups and downs, sometimes literally, of an African transplant, Z (Pape Sidy Niang), who has, rather bewilderingly, found work as a Seattle bicycle cop. As he rides along the city's emptied streets, pulling the dead out of the water and the living out of trouble, this stranger in a strange land throws a mirror up to a world that alternately looks everything and nothing like our own.

Very cool.

Oh, don't miss "Farewell, My Queen!" when it comes out.

Or the Fremont Troll movie showing at Hale's Palladium.
