Join us at The Frida Cinema as our awesome volunteer Trevor Dillon premieres his production company Ghost Party Pictures' new 8-minute short film NITE FIX, then follows it up by one of the films that most inspired it – Nicolas Winding Refn’s phenomenal DRIVE!
Doors 7:30pm / NITE FIX 7:45pm / DRIVE 8pm
Winner of the Cannes Film Festival award for Best Director, and lauded by critics and awards groups while polarizing audiences, Drive is a stylish homage to the 1980’s neon-cool of Michael Mann and Tangerine Dream, delivering the alternately visceral and meditative story of Driver (Ryan Gosling), a skilled Hollywood stuntman who moonlights as a getaway driver for criminals. Though an otherwise tough and icy figure, Driver warms up to his neighbor Irene (Carey Mulligan) and her young son, Benicio (Kaden Leos). When Irene’s husband Standard (Oscar Issac) gets out of jail, he enlists Driver’s help in a million-dollar heist. The job goes horribly wrong, and Driver must risk his life to protect Irene and Benicio from Bernie (Albert Brooks) and Nino (Ron Perlman), the brutal masterminds behind the robbery.
