Sigh….was it just me or was it kinda humid today?  (hellooooo, clouds & rain!)  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 Chile via Life Kills Me.  

Don’t get left behind, details below:

Synopsis:
Life and death come wrapped in a mutual embrace, both absurd and poignant, in this smart comedy about an unlikely friendship between a grieving cinematographer and a morbidly obsessed drifter. At work on a seriously schlocky, low-budget horror film, Gaspar is still reeling from the untimely death of his beloved older brother when he meets Alvaro at yet another premature funeral. A mildly sociopathic young man with an unyielding curiosity for the dark side, Alvaro soon coaxes Gaspar out of his shell in unexpected ways, in a debut film that pulses with a sure cinematic style as it channels a compassionate vision of frail, formidable, unforgettable lives.
