We return to our usual Wednesday evening screenings with the New Orleans premiere of ACTRESS, filmmaker Robert Greene's latest documentary that blurs the line between performance and reality. A Skype Q&A with filmmaker Robert Greene is scheduled to follow the screening. PLEASE NOTE: this screening was originally announced for March 26; however, due to scheduling conflicts, we've moved the screening to March 25.

Doors open at 6:30, with the film starting at 7:00. Tickets are $7 cash or charge, and will be available at the door the night of the screening only.

Film synopsis: Filmmaker Robert Greene encounters actress Brandy Burre (THE WIRE) as she transitions from a stay-at-home mom back into acting. As Burre attempts to re-enter the acting world, the cozy domestic life that she had embraced begins to crumble. An affair leads to the breakup with the father of her children, and both age and her time away from acting prove to be hurdles for Burre in her attempts to find work. Playfully revealing her vulnerabilities while manipulating those in her life (including the film’s viewers), Burre is captivating to watch, and yet is a seemingly unreliable narrator of her own life. Greene’s cinema verite-meets-melodrama style probes Burre’s relationship to herself, her life, and performance.
