Bird Brained

When: Sat., Aug. 8 2015

No one has quite captured absurdist comedy since Samuel Beckett. However, tonight, Roy Anderson is trying. His 2014 French film A Pigeon Sat On a Branch Reflecting on Existence shows the absurdity of humanity through physical humor and 37 fixed cameras. A parade of human oddities, the film is no Waiting for Godot but it’s the best we’re going to get in the 21st century. The shows starts at 9:30 p.m. at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Rees)
