Special Free Screening! A Tribute to Christina Gaston
United States | 2001 | Cory McAbee
Tonight we remember musician, arts lover, and Cinematheque volunteer Christina Gaston, who passed away suddenly in April, at age 34. We will present a free screening of one of her favorite films. The American Astronaut is a loony, low-tech sci-fi Western/musical about an interplanetary trader from Earth (writer-director-singer Cory McAbee) who encounters an old nemesis while traversing the solar system—rendered here as a grubby frontier populated by tough guys and other ne’er-do-wells. Prior to the screening, at 7:00, friends will speak about Christina.
94 min. 35mm. Co-sponsored by Column & Stripe: The New Friends of the Cleveland Museum of Art. Film courtesy of Cory McAbee and Pablo Kjolseth.
