Film festival starts tonight

In brief

April 12, 2001|By Chris Kaltenbach

Films about a housewarming party at which a guest reveals his personal relationship with the abominable snowman, and a hyper-kinetic Hong Kong contract killer start John Hopkins Film Fest 2001 tonight at the Charles.

The four-day festival, which moves to the Hopkins campus tomorrow, will include more than 125 feature-length films and shorts, from Darren Aronofsky's "Requiem for a Dream" to works from little-known local filmmakers.

It all starts tonight at 8 with Scott Barlow's "The Last Late Night," about a dinner party that takes unforeseen turns, and a pair of shorts: "Seraglio," a tale of adultery and cabbage, and "The Hook-Armed Man," in which Jesus works at a gas station.

At 10, Wong Kar-Wai's "Fallen Angels" uses a frenetic visual style to relate the tale of a contract killer.

Tickets are $3 per film; $5 for the entire day, $15 for the four-day run. For information, check out the festival's Web site at /~jhufilm/fest.
