35mm Screening of Terry Gilliam's 'Brazil'

From the event description:

If there’s an undisputed masterpiece in Terry Gilliam’s body of work, it’s this 1985 dark comedic classic of a person’s imagination battling with the oppressive directives of a future dystopia. Gilliam somehow found the absolute perfect tone here in the biting comedic story of worker bee Sam Lawry (in a stunning performance by Jonathan Pryce) who tries to investigate and right a bureaucratic wrong only to discover just how monstrous the society in which he lives truly lives.

When: Saturday, Dec. 7, 11:59 p.m.- Sunday, Dec. 8, 2:30 a.m.
Where: Vista Theatre, 4473 Sunset Drive
