The Harvard Film Archive is pleased to present a special sneak preview of Southland Tales, Richard Kelly’s highly anticipated follow-up to his cult classic Donnie Darko. An ambitious science fiction epic that examines the post-911 world, Southland Tales offers a dark, satiric portrait of Los Angeles as a futuristic city taken over by entertainment savvy military industrial powers. Dwayne Johnson commands the leading role as an action star with amnesia who follows a sinister web of conspiracy into the heart of a strange, Hollywood-based police state. With original music by Moby and a song and dance sequence by Justin Timberlake, Southland Tales is a visually dazzling, totally absorbing and politically acute work by one of the few truly visionary directors working in Hollywood today.
Shown in conjunction with the ART’s production of Donnie Darko, running October 27 - November 18, 2007. Print courtesy of Sony Pictures.
