Tomorrow night marks the first night of the heralded San Francisco Documentary Film Festival at the Roxie Theater in the Mission. A collection of opening films will be screened, including The Drums Inside Your Chest, the new visionary work of director Stephen Latty.
The Drums Inside Your Chest is a performance poetry concert film offering a raucous new vision of contemporary America poetry. Inspired by the spontaneity and energy of rock-and-roll concert films, Drums captures all of the humor, dirt, song and fire of seven award-winning younger poets: Amber Tamblyn, Beau Sia, Derrick Brown, Mindy Nettifee, Buddy Wakefield, Jeffrey McDaniel & Bucky Sinister, on stage, backstage and watching from the wings during a special, one-night-only Los Angeles performance.
Drums will premiere in San Francisco opening night of the Doc Fest, Friday, October 16th 2009 at 9:15 pm with an encore screening on Saturday October 17 at 2:30 pm. There will also be a live reading from Amber Tamblyn and Bucky Sinister as well as Q&A with director Stephen Latty. Tickets are $11.00 and are available, here, or at sfindie.com.
