We have the very distinct pleasure of teaming up with Charm School Vintage to bring you three great films this fall, and we couldn’t be more excited! Film is our other main passion, next to design and music – so when Shari from Charm School asked if we wanted to put together a little film series to show some great films outside now that the weather is getting cooler, we jumped at the chance. For September, October, and November, we’ll be showing a short and a feature length film outside at Charm School on the last Sunday of the month, with complimentary snacks and drinks from local businesses.
The films that we will be showing for each month are:
September 30th at 7pm
At Land directed by Maya Deren (1944)
Qui Etes Vous, Polly Magoo? directed by William Klein (1966)
October 28th at 7pm
Shorts by The Brothers Quay
Suspiria directed by Dario Argento (1977)
November 25th at 7pm
Rabbit’s Moon directed by Kenneth Anger (1972)
The Color of Pomegranates directed by Sergei Parajanov (1968)
This month our food trailer – Johnnye’s – will be providing the food, and the films are both black and white and feature powerful, beautiful women. If you’re not in Austin or cannot make it, you can watch At Land in its entirety below, and here’s the opening scene from Qui Etes Vous, Polly Magoo?
We’ll post more details and clips from the other films as their particular dates approach, so keep an eye out for some more information about those nights.
Charm School Vintage is located at 2109 E. Cesar Chavez in Austin, Texas, and we’ll be starting the shorts around 7pm. We’re planning on showing the films outside, but if for some reason the weather turns, we will move inside the shop. Hope to see you Sunday!
