Easily one of the most controversial films at both this year’s Sundance and South By Southwest, Evan Glodell’s debut feature Bellflower is destined to leave you discussing, debating and deconstructing it for weeks after viewing.  This harrowing nightmare follows best friends Woodrow and Aiden, who spend all of their free time building Mad Max-inspired flamethrowers and muscle cars in preparation for a global apocalypse.  When Woodrow meets a charismatic young woman and falls hard in love, he and Aiden quickly integrate into a new group of friends, setting off on a journey of love and hate, betrayal, infidelity, and extreme violence more devastating and fiery than any of their apocalyptic fantasies. “What really matters [in Bellflower] is the emotional violence that unspools in the dark fears and fantasies we dream up when we’ve been hurt…It’s the kind of film that explores one person’s pain writ large, to the point that their hurt spells doom for the whole world. Glodell’s film will stick with you long after you leave the theater, and though you may have the comfort of remembering that it was all just a dream, just a film, you’ll still catch yourself sneaking the occasional peek towards the horizon for signs of a mushroom cloud.” — Renn Brown, CHUD Director/star Evan Glodell will be here for a Q&A after the film! Plus, DJ Dan Shapiro will be here to spin tunes before and after the film!

If you aren’t able to come to this screening, check out Bellflower when it opens at the NuArt Theater on Friday, August 5th!
