Pedro Almodóvar 35mm Double Feature @ Trylon Cinema
2820 E 33rd St. • 7pm • Advance tickets available now
The Cult Film Collective proudly presents a 35mm double feature of Pedro Almodóvar’s MATADOR (1986) and LAW OF DESIRE (1987). Unsentimental, exploding with color, and sensitive to the plight of outcasts, these two early Almodóvar films exemplify his unique ability to both disturb and delight MATADOR (1986) This pitch-black comedy follows Ángel (Banderas), a bullfighting student so warped by Catholic guilt that he admits to murders he didn’t commit; his female lawyer (Serna), who is aroused by violence; and Ángel’s ex-matador teacher (Martinez), who gets interposed between them. This gem is widely considered Almodóvar’s first masterwork.
FRI 7:00 SAT 9:15 SUN 3:00

LAW OF DESIRE (1987) Love, obsession, sex, murder, filmmaking, and amnesia: sounds like prime Almodóvar. Law of Desire was his international breakout film and the first one produced by his own company, El Deseo.
FRI 9:15 SAT 7:00 SUN 5:15

Science Book Club: Lab Girl @ Boneshaker Books • 2002 23rd Ave S • 11am
The July 7 science book club selection is “Lab Girl,” by Hope Jahren. Copies are in stock now at a 20% discount off the regular paperback price. Boneshaker’s Science Book Club reads books that are science-related, but hopefully accessible to those without an academic background in science. We seek to select titles that are in line with Boneshaker’s mission of social justice.
**No racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, fatphobia, etc.**
Boneshaker Books is ADA accessible, with no stairs or steps leading into, or in, the store. We have one single-stall, all-gender restroom.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Geobiologist Hope Jahren has spent her life studying trees, flowers, seeds, and soil. Lab Girl is her revelatory treatise on plant life—but it is also a celebration of the lifelong curiosity, humility, and passion that drive every scientist. In these pages, Hope takes us back to her Minnesota childhood, where she spent hours in unfettered play in her father’s college laboratory. She tells us how she found a sanctuary in science, learning to perform lab work “with both the heart and the hands.” She introduces us to Bill, her brilliant, eccentric lab manager. And she extends the mantle of scientist to each one of her readers, inviting us to join her in observing and protecting our environment. Warm, luminous, compulsively readable, Lab Girl vividly demonstrates the mountains that we can move when love and work come together.Madeline & Sam’s Magical Storytime @ Boneshaker Books • 2002 23rd Ave S • 11am
It is our mission with this story time to promote children’s books that shine a spotlight on a wide array of racial and cultural identities, genders, orientations, experiences and abilities. We want to create a space that places a special emphasis on promoting self love, empathy and a greater understanding of the strange, magical world we inhabit. There is serious deficit in children’s books that depict protagonists who are a people of color, people with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ or any combination of the above. That is why Madeline and Sam’s Magical Story Time seeks out books that do just that. Positive representation in books is crucial to a child’s development of a positive self image. It can be absolutely life affirming for a child to see a protagonist who reflects them accomplishing anything they set their mind to. It is also crucial in developing empathy for a child to experience diversity at a young age. This story time will not only be educational, but spectacularly fun! Before each reading we will have one minute wiggle parties and coloring pages that correlate with that weeks books.

LOTT: is the solo project of Minneapolis musician, Leah Ottman (We Are The Willows). Classical Experimental Violin. The core inspiration for LOTT’s compositions is the Romantic Period of classical music. The chordal structures, intervals, and melodies heard throughout her songs are reminiscent of those used by Antonin Dvorak, Alexander Borodin, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, French Impressionist composer, Maurice Ravel, and then condensed into pop songs. She explores the range on her violin by utilizing a looping pedal and similar techniques employed by looping violinist pioneers, Andrew Bird, Kishi Bashi, and Owen Pallet. https://soundcloud.com/lott-music
PONY HUNT-(New Orleans) – creating dreamy sounds influenced by 60s psych rock, soul, and doo-wop. Pony Hunt delves into deep territory- confronting issues of self identity, gender-fluidity, female oppression, and the inherent isolation therein while Pushing past roots driven compositions into a psychedelic realm which hints to that of Joe Meek and The Velvet Underground. https://ponyhunt.bandcamp.com/
in/PLANES (CO) offer their unique take and spin on American roots music, exploring classic pop sounds — notably late 50’s & 60’s R&B, Doo-Wop and Soul — to create a vibey, sparse and entrancing sound.

In an age of confusion, fear, and loss, Hanif Abdurraqib’s is a voice that matters. Whether he’s attending a Bruce Springsteen concert the day after visiting Michael Brown’s grave, or discussing public displays of affection at a Carly Rae Jepsen show, he writes with a poignancy and magnetism that resonates profoundly. In the wake of the nightclub attacks in Paris, he recalls how he sought refuge as a teenager in music, at shows, and wonders whether the next generation of young Muslims will not be afforded that opportunity now. While discussing the everyday threat to the lives of black Americans, Abdurraqib recounts the first time he was ordered to the ground by police officers: for attempting to enter his own car. In essays that have been published by the New York Times, MTV, and Pitchfork, among others—along with original, previously unreleased essays—Abdurraqib uses music and culture as a lens through which to view our world, so that we might better understand ourselves, and in so doing proves himself a bellwether for our times. We discuss the book and this time MPLS gets to go 1st! Be there for pizza, beer and good tunes. Check out the playlist ahead of time on Spotify. Search Jefe23.

Co-presented by KFAI In 1983, documentary filmmaker Miroslav Janek became involved with a group of volunteers running a tiny community radio station out of the belfry of a Unitarian church in South Minneapolis. Operating at a humble 14-watts, KFAI hosted a motley crew of characters pumping out blues, progressive rock, foreign language programming and absurdist radio theater to anyone who could pick up the signal. The result of a year’s worth of footage, Miroslav Janek’s Little City In Space documents the early days of KFAI radio, which celebrates its 40th year on-air this year. The film highlights some of the station’s disparate volunteer DJs, including Chicago bluesman Lazy Bill Lucas, accordion player/barber Helge Lamo and Minneapolis mainstay Willie Murphy. Dir. Miroslav Janek, 1984, 60 min., USA / Czech Republic, Digital
