CHLOTRUDIS co-presents THE CASE AGAINST 8 and WE ARE THE BEST! at 12th ANNUAL INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL OF BOSTON
The Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film is pleased to join with the INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL OF BOSTON (IFFBoston) once again as a coprsenter as part of the festival’s 12th year. We are particularly pleased to have the opportunity to share in both the festival’s documentary and narrative wealths, by copresenting one of each this year.
Lucas Moodysson’s latest film, WE ARE THE BEST!, is about a teen punk band and has been heralded a comic coming of age masterpiece by international critics. Based on a graphic novel by Moodysson’s wife, the film is set in Stockholm in the 80’s, where two 13-year old girls band together to strike out in musical rebellion against all the obstacles in their teenaged life.
THE CASE AGAINST 8, which won the doc directors award at Sundance this past January, takes us behind the scenes of the Supreme Court trial that was brought to overturn California’s controversial amendment which rescinded gay marriage rights recently won. Shot over five years, with intimate access, the film brings to light the details and stories behind a historic event.
WE ARE THE BEST! will be shown at 2:30pm at the Somerville Theater Screen 5, in the heart of Davis Square, on Saturday April 26th. THE CASE AGAINST 8 will be screened twice – the first on Saturday April 26th at 2pm at the Somerville Theater Screen 1; the second on Monday April 28th, at the Somerville Theater Screen 2 at 7pm.
