Nelson Civic Theatre 09 – 15, September , 2022.

“George Miller, the world builder of ‘Road Runner: Fury Road’, is back with another truly cinematic journey in ‘Three Thousand Years of Longing.’  Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton create quite the striking pairing  in this romantic fantasy fairytale for adults, and offers a new perspective on the genie in the bottle motif. And from fantasy to the real world exploits of Maurice Paul Krafft and Catherine Joséphine “Katia” Krafft, presents another unusual love story in the documentary, ‘Fire of Love’. The Alsacian French volcanologists were inseparable the moment they discovered that they shared an obsession with fiery earth. The pair captured some of the most stunning imagery of volcanoes and lava before they ultimately met their end in a 1991 pyroclastic flow on Japan’s Mt. Unzen.  Narrated by Miranda July, ‘Fire of Love’ is the highest grossing documentary of the year and is fresh indeed with its 99% Tomatoes rating.  Don’t miss the other half of the Elba double bill with ‘Beast’, and the powerful documentary ‘The Territory,’ which provides an immersive on-the-ground look at the tireless fight of the Indigenous Uru-eu-wau-wau people against the encroaching deforestation brought by farmers and illegal settlers in the Brazilian Amazon. All these options made possible by the flexibility added by the addition of The Shoebox Theatre.  If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, this is the week! 225 Hall St.”
