Sigh….was it just me or was it kinda hot today?  (hellooooo, 100+ digits)  Being a resident of the Coachella Valley during the summer isn’t always fabulous…in fact, some times are just flat-out hard.  One of my favorite ways to avoid the heat, and the painful reality that often comes with it, is by leaving it all behind (or outside) as I relax in the theater and drift off to foreign lands through stories told over the silver screen.  In the theater is where you can sink deep into your seat, soak up the air conditioning and travel to far-a-way lands all while watching a fantastic foreign film.  This Thursday, the Palm Springs Art Museum invites you to join them on a voyage to Mexico’s via The Fantastic World of Juan Orol.  

Don’t get left behind, details below:

Synopsis:
Move over Ed Wood! Mexico’s half-forgotten B-movie master, “involuntary surrealist” Juan Orol, receives a pitch-perfect tribute in this irresistible love letter to a self-made man of showbiz, whose career spanned nearly sixty films. In a glorious black-and-white flashback mingling movie-tainted memories of his Galician childhood, forced exile to Cuba and arrival in Mexico, intrepid “Juanito“ pursues failed careers as
baseball player, boxer, bullfighter and gangster before landing in the movies—where failure kind of works for him. As Orol, Roberto Sosa exudes droll underdog charm, anchoring a fast-moving comedy where every frame is an infectious homage to a golden age of cinema, the wile of memory and the art of fantasy.
