A BREAD FACTORY: TWO NIGHT EVENT
PATRICK WANG | USA | 2018
A beautiful oddity in the field of American cinema, Patrick Wang’s A Bread Factory is one of the funniest and freshest films to come along in years. Divided into two feature-length parts, it’s a mini-epic, broad in scope but fine-grained in its details. The film centers on the residents of the fictional hamlet of Checkford, and particularly on partners Dorothea (Tyne Daly) and Greta (Elisabeth Henry), who have operated an arts center called The Bread Factory for 40 years. But Checkford is changing, and it’s up to Dorothea, Greta, and their various friends and neighbors to defend art and integrity against the forces of commerce and gentrification.
Cast: Tyne Daly, Elisabeth Henry, James Marsters, Janeane Garofalo
