This year’s program kicks off with the mind-bending indie Upstream Color, about a strange life-form that can be used to control people’s minds. “It’s an amazing movie, and this is a great context for this film. It definitely leaves you with the ‘What the hell was that?’ question,” promises Britt Withey of the DFS. “It’s one of my top picks this year, for sure.”
Health scientist Nicole Garneau and film professor Vincent Piturro will lead a discussion before and after the film; other programs this summer will feature everything from the classic Alien to last year’s blockbuster Gravity, each paired with studied experts in relevant fields.
The series begins tonight at 7 p.m. at the Sie FilmCenter, 2510 East Colfax Avenue. Tickets are $15, or $12 for DFS and DMNS members. A series pass is available for $65, or $50 for members. For tickets and more details, including a complete schedule, visit denverfilm.org.
