“Part 1920s radioplay, part western, part musical, and an all-around screwball comedy, Sister Aimee embraces one woman’s legend to validate the power of spectacle and the magic of a good storyteller.” —Sundance Film Festival
A sensational evangelist fakes her own disappearance and escapes to Mexico with her new beau and their guide in a partly true, partly made-up tale of fame and flight. In their playful feature debut, cowriter/directors Samantha Buck and Marie Schlingmann conjure a true retro-spectacular anchored by Anna Margaret Hollyman’s dazzling virtuosic performance in their feminist musical comedy. 2019, US, DCP, in English and Spanish with English subtitles, 87 min.
Postshow conversation with Samantha Buck and Marie Schlingmann, led by Andrew Peterson, FilmNorth.
Free tickets available at the Main Lobby desk from 6 pm.
