Hayes Valley’s Fall 2022 Outdoor Film Festival at Proxy (Sept. 23-Oct. 21)

Every Friday through October 21st.

As fall approaches and San Francisco “summer” begins, it’s time for the return of the FREE films at PROXY!  This Fall season’s films examine the concept of people coming into their own power – through the lens of womanhood, sexuality, identity, and adversity.  In each film, characters overcome personal hardships to etch out new meaning for themselves within the lot life has dealt them.

Come out and enjoy a movie (or five!) under the stars in Hayes Valley, running every Friday night starting September 23rd through October 21st. Presented by HERE FOR NOW, these FREE, evening film screenings at the PROXY Walk-In Theater begin at dusk with ‘doors’ opening at 6:00 pm. Come early to claim a good spot, enjoy a frosty Fort Point Beer or wine from Fig & Thistle (all proceeds support outdoor cinema at PROXY!) and delicious fare from local food trucks The Chairman and the Kebab Trolley!

Sept 23rd  |  MEMORIA  |   Directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul, 2021 [PG]

Memoria is a bewildering drama about a Scottish woman, who, after hearing a loud ‘bang’ at daybreak, begins experiencing a mysterious sensory syndrome while traversing the jungles of Colombia. An auditory and psychological experience, this film is an artwork to be enjoyed ephemerally and eternally only on the big screen.  

RSVP now on EVENTBRITE!

 

Sept 30th |  LEAD ME HOME |  Directed by Pedro Kos, Jon Shenk, 2021 [PG-13] 

Special panel discussion with the director and San Francisco residents featured in the film. 

Lead Me Home presents the epidemic of homelessness in America with a show-don’t-tell approach, featuring candid testimonials from those who rest their heads in shelters, tent cities, and anywhere a night’s sleep can be found. An emotional and honest conversation with unhoused residents from San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle, presenting a dignified portrait of our culture’s fraying edges and the people who inhabit them.

Oct 7th  |  NEPTUNE FROST |  Directed by Anisia Uzeyman, Saul Williams, 2021 [not rated]

Heralded as one of the “most extraordinary original experiences of the year”, Neptune Frost is an Afrofuturistic musical that confronts capitalism, migration, homophobia and war in this poetically twisted film.  When an intersex runaway and an escaped coltan miner find each other through cosmic forces, their connection sparks glitches within the greater divine circuitry.

Oct 14th  |  HAPPENING  |  Directed by Audrey Diwan, 2021 [R]

Anne is a bright young student with a promising future ahead of her. But when she falls pregnant, she sees the opportunity to finish her studies and escape the constraints of her working-class background disappearing.  Happening is compassionate, brutally honest, and serves as both a transfixing drama and an urgent reminder of the need to protect women’s reproductive rights.

Oct 21st  |  PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN  |  Directed by Emerald Fennell, 2020 [R]

Haunted by the loss of her friend to a terrible rape/suicide, Cassie seeks revenge by going out night after night acting the drop down drunk.  When lured home by the “nice guy” she flips the switch to icy sober, forcing them to confront their true intentions.  A story about loss, about revenge, and one that hits far too close to home for any woman –  this film forces the audience to feel uncomfortable while poised on the edge of their seat.
