God Help the Girl
From writer/director Stuart Murdoch (lead singer of beloved indie pop group Belle & Sebastian) comes the most delightfully different musical of the year. Eve (Emily Browning) is a catastrophe—low on self-esteem but high on fantasy, especially when it comes to music. Over the course of one Glasgow summer, she meets two similarly rootless souls: posh Cass (Hannah Murray) and fastidious James (Olly Alexander), and together they decide there’s only one thing to do: form a pop group.
Skip Elsheimer is the founder and curator of the A/V Geeks Educational Film Archive – a collection of over 25,000 16mm educational films in Raleigh, NC. Most of the films have been rescued from libraries and schools that were throwing them out. He’s toured the country showing these films at universities, museums, galleries, clubs, and even on moving school buses. There are over 180 A/V Geeks DVD compilations available and more than 2,000 films and videos of the archive available online on YouTube and Archive.org. Skip has a chapter in Learning with the Lights Off: Educational Film in the United States (Oxford University Press, 2012) and is thinking seriously about doing a documentary on VD films. This screening will pair thematically with Young Contemporaries.
