Event Description:

The Art House Cinema Series is new to Scottsdale Arts this season. New films will be added throughout the season.

The Rural Route Film Festival was created to highlight works that deal with people and places outside the bustle of the city. It includes films that tackle some of the most important topics of the day in the slow food movement, global warming/environment and sustainability, including one on a London poacher and forager and another about a UFO festival encounter in a small Wisconsin town.

NOTE: “Scenes of farm/rural practices and animated violence are realistically depicted and may be upsetting to some audience members.”

Rural Route Film Festival Director and Founder Alan Webber will do a Skype Q&A following the screening.

Presented in partnership with No Festival Required
Co-hosted by Steve Weiss and NFR Independent Films

About the Conversation
What are the physical and metaphysical conditions of borders and borderlands? How do borders span the imaginary, emotional, and physical landscapes of the human condition? Join a conversation and reading with poet and educator, Eduardo Corral, exploring the imaginative, bodily, societal, political, emotional, physical, and linguistic impacts of borders to us as human beings, our connections, and our artistic bodies of work.

Fundraising for No Más Muertes
This conversation benefits No Más Muertes (No More Deaths), a humanitarian organization based in southern Arizona dedicated to increasing efforts to stop deaths of migrants in the desert. Their mission is to “end death and suffering in the Mexico–US borderlands through civil initiative: people of conscience working openly and in community to uphold fundamental human rights” (No Más Muertes).
