Program: Special Presentation
A Special Screening in honor of Russell Means
Days and Nights is writer/director Christian Camargo’s directorial debut, inspired by Anton Chekhov’s “The Seagull” and set in rural New England in 1984.
A fading movie star (Allison Janney) brings her paramour to her lakeside estate to visit her ailing brother (William Hurt) and fledgling-artist son (Ben Whishaw). While the eccentric family and their caretakers (portrayed by an international ensemble cast including Katie Holmes, Cherry Jones, Russell Means, Michael Nyqvist, Jean Reno, Juliet Rylance, and Mark Rylance) gather to celebrate Memorial Day, reckless desire wreaks havoc and a disastrous turn of events leads the family from dysfunction to heartbreak. In Chekhovian fashion, comedy and tragedy collide for a profound look at the volatile and fragile nature of love.
