Just Announced: Beyond This Place

It isn't everyday that a documentary filmmaker has the guts to turn the camera on himself, much less on, say, his fraught relationship with his perpetually stoned, freedom-fetishizing, absentee father. But we get nothing less in the award-winning documentary Beyond This Place, director Kaleo La Belle's engrossing chronicle of his own attempts to make amends with his dad, forget it all, and move on.

Luckily, BAM just got the green light to screen the film in the Opera House on October 30 as part of our 150th anniversary celebrations. We couldn't be more excited. Take a look at the trailer here:

So why are we screening it in the roomy opera house instead of closer to the popcorn in BAM Rose Cinemas? Because it will definitely sell out, and we want to make sure there's plenty of room for all that want to see it. Why will it sell out? Because, along with the buzz surrounding the film in general, two very special guests—one of them an already-seasoned, particularly doe-eyed BAM artist—will be on hand to provide a live soundtrack. Unfortunately, the guests' names are locked inside of a secret vault located half a mile under Lafayette Avenue. They also might or might not be mentioned at 1:38 into the trailer above...

Beyond This Place goes on sale tomorrow (September 14) to BAM members and Monday (September 19) to the general public. As I said, it will definitely sell out, so if you want to absolutely guarantee your seat, become a BAM member and beat the rush for tickets.
