One night only! Co-presented by MUBI.
This is the story of The Bread Factory, a community arts center in the small town of Checkford, told in two films.
Part One: For the Sake of Gold: After 40 years of running The Bread Factory, Dorothea and Greta are suddenly fighting for survival when a celebrity couple—performance artists from China—come to Checkford and build an enormous complex down the street catapulting big changes in their small town. (122 min.)
Part Two: Walk With Me a While: At The Bread Factory, they rehearse the Greek play, Hecuba. But the real theatrics are outside the theater where the town has been invaded by bizarre tourists and mysterious tech start-up workers. There is a new normal in Checkford, if it is even really Checkford any longer. (120 min.)
*Note: A Bread Factory will screen in two parts. There will be a short intermission between films. A single ticket grants admission to both films.
