Mike Mills Night this Sunday!

Once a month The Cinefamily will host "Family Sundays", where we will bring in people we admire and respect--artists, writers, filmmakers, musicians, comedians, or generally inspiring folk--to curate and introduce a night of films. First, they'll show lesser-seen short films that they've made, or that have been made about them--or that they just like. Afterwards, they'll show a feature that has personally influenced them, and finally they'll explain it all and take your questions too.
Kicking off the series is artist/designer/filmaker Mike Mills, whose work you probably know if you ever been in the store. He's directed music videos for Sonic Youth, Yoko Ono, Beastie Boys, Blonde Redhead and Ol' Dirty Bastard, as well as the film Thumbsucker, and the documentaries Does Your Soul Have a Cold? and Deformer (about Ed Templeton). Medium is less important to Mills' work than an encompassing vision that permeates all his diverse projects. Whether it's a television commercial, a watercolor painting, or a fabric design, everything Mills concocts is suffused by his current emotional and spiritual disposition. He has chosen to show and share his thoughts about Istvan Szabo's Lovefilm, a lesser-known 1970 masterpiece from the Czech New Wave.

Tickets are $12, and the show starts at 8pm.

We have an amazing roster of people planned for future Family Sundays, so stay tuned....
