Far Beyond Film is delighted to announce that “Cinema At The Edge” film festival in Santa Monica, California, will host the World Premiere of “Catching Sight of Thelma & Louise” on April 30, 2017. CATE offers the perfect launching pad for a film about “Thelma & Louise” — propelling it Over the Edge and Out into the World.
“Catching Sight of Thelma & Louise” is a feature documentary about how women experience the world. It illuminates the classic journey of its namesake through film clips and intimate stories by filmgoers who saw “Thelma & Louise” in 1991. They guide us through the film, sharing their heartfelt responses, connecting past to present. They pose the question: Has anything changed?
Jennifer Townsend, a Seattle filmmaker, traveled around the country to make the film over a three-year period. Preview audiences praise it’s authenticity, power, and ability to capture the zeitgeist of our era.
CATE is held at the beautiful Edgemar Center for the Arts, a Frank Gehry designed complex. The festival runs from Thursday, April 27th through Sunday, April 30th, followed by an Awards Ceremony and Closing Reception from 6:30pm to 8:00pm on Sunday evening.
