Afs Presents: Sid & Nancy says
AFS Artistic Director Richard Linklater will not be able to attend Wednesday's (May 6) screening due to an unexpected conflict. The May 6 screening will go on as planned but as a screening only (no introduction or post-film discussion).

Additionally, we have added another screening on Monday, May 11, with Linklater in attendance for an introduction and post-film discussion.

The notion of Hollywood producing a film based on the tragic love affair of Sex Pistol Sid Vicious and his girlfriend - and partner in heroin - Nancy Spungeon would have sounded ludicrous if not for the participation of British/American writer/director Alex Cox. Cox had just made REPO MAN, a triumphant distillation of the punk aesthetic into raw, exciting celluloid. His SID & NANCY has the energy and life of punk and its tragedy is all the more shocking as a result. Starring Gary Oldman and Chloe Webb.
