COLUMBUS

SEPTEMBER 24 - 28

Columbus is a gorgeous movie directed by first-time feature director Kogonada, and premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January. It stars John Cho, Parker Posey and Haley Lu Richardson, and is a mediation about time and place, and the way physical space informs our emotions. It takes place in the modernist architecture mecca of Columbus, IN, and the buildings in the city are practically a character in the film

What's remarkable about this wondrously assured debut is that technique never overwhelms feeling, in part because Kogonada makes the two seem inextricably, harmoniously linked." Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

The film: When a renowned architecture scholar falls suddenly ill during a speaking tour, his son Jin (John Cho) finds himself stranded in Columbus, Indiana - a small Midwestern city celebrated for its many significant modernist buildings. Jin strikes up a friendship with Casey (Haley Lu Richardson), a young architecture enthusiast who works at the local library. As their intimacy develops, Jin and Casey explore both the town and their conflicted emotions: Jin's estranged relationship with his father, and Casey's reluctance to leave Columbus and her mother. With its naturalistic rhythms and empathy for the complexities of families,
