Wayne Bell, not only introduces them and their town to us, but he democra-tically goes about querying each one about how he or she would choose to film the town -- and what theme they might use. The towns-folk oblige mightily, even agreeing to make their own tiny films which are then inserted into the larger opus. These include the restaurant, Rosita's Cafe, below, the hub of the town's social life -- not to mention its breakfasts and lunches; how young couples cotton to this odd and lonely place; the joy of watching sheep & lambs; and ranch life in general. The whole pac-kage runs, I should inform you, only 71 minutes, including credits.
Sweetgrass and Le Quattro Volte -- you'll probably find these sheep a lot more fun (and filmed more compactly, too).
Quad Cinema. Click here to see any other currently scheduled playdates. There is one scheduled for El Paso this coming August, but I hope we'll see even more. And that, eventually, this little homemade gem will arrive on DVD and/or streaming.
