“Southland Tales has more ideas, visual and intellectual, in a single scene than most American independent films have in their entirety.”
— New York Times

Q&A

The city stands on the brink of social, economic and environmental disaster. Southland Tales is an epic story, set over the course of three days, that culminates in a massive 4th of July celebration. A large ensemble cast of characters includes Boxer Santaros, an action star stricken with amnesia; Krysta Now, an adult-film star developing her own reality-television project; and Roland Taverner, a Hermosa Beach police officer who holds the key to a vast conspiracy.

The director will attend

Unfairly maligned upon its release 10 years ago, Southland Tales has since proven itself to be a bona fide cult classic. Falling somewhere between tent-pole sci-fi blockbuster, post-modern music video, political satire and absurdist comedy, Richard Kelly’s follow-up to Donnie Darko is a breathless mash-up of styles and genres that demands your attention. It is also, without a doubt, my favourite film
