February 8, 9 & 10 Sun: 3pm Mon & Tues: 7pm HELDOVER after a very popular engagement at the NW Film Forum. In Matt Smith’s autobiographical tale “My Last Year With the Nuns,” the universe of his 8th grade self is about ten blocks long. Smith and his friends roam the heavily Catholic Capitol Hill neighborhoods of Seattle, Washington in the late 1960s wandering from St. Joseph’s Church to the Seattle Times newspaper shack, from school playgrounds to a murky and tangled ravine that cuts through the city. The paper shack lies on the edge of the racial ‘red line’ drawn to enforce the era’s prejudice, providing a rare forum where white and black kids come together for a few minutes each day before returning to their segregated streets and lives. "The result is like "Amacord" by way of Spalding Gray -- a rich coming-of-age story that gradually accumulates its appeal through the storyteller's investment in bringing each ingredient to life." indieWIRE Bret Fetzer / 2014, Seattle / Color 88min / Blu-ray
