Gimme Some Truth: Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets

Fri, Dec 3 / 9:45pm
Directed by Bill Ross IV & Turner Ross
2020, USA, 98 min

On the eve of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and on its final night before closing, a Las Vegas dive bar becomes a stage where its employees and barflies commiserate one last time. Filmmaking brothers Bill and Turner Ross train their keenly observed quasi-fiction on the lived-in atmosphere of a haunt, whose massed warmth and love conceal its patron’s worries—at least for a little while. Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets is a carefully constructed yet oddly affecting record of an American sensibility at once straining to survive and ready for the end.

Tomorrow, Today
Dir. Hope Peterson, 2019, Canada, 2 mins
Found badges from the 1970s bearing activist, educational and regional slogans are animated with a soundtrack from the 2019 climate march in Toronto, Canada. Once a ubiquitous, and often countercultural, fashion accessory, these lapel pins helped wearers share ideals and beliefs publicly, before the personal branding of social media, and their messages exemplify the optimism of the era. Produced at Pix Film Gallery, Toronto.
