FILM

Tuesday, June 17 – Exposed: Inside Film at EMP|SFM – Terra with Animator and Director Aristomenis Tsirbas

EMP|SFM, in partnership with The Warren Report, presents a new film series, Exposed: Inside Film at EMP|SFM. The series includes new films, cult favorites and classic sci-fi and music films. Each screening is followed by a behind-the-scenes look through an interactive discussion with actors, directors or screenwriters associated with the film. In June, EMP|SFM presents Terra, a beautiful new animated film that puts a spin on the traditional alien invasion premise. Director and animator Aristomenis Tsirbas will be present to discuss his film. Warren Etheredge of The Warren Report will host the event.

Originally made as a seven minute animated short in 2003, Tsirbas explains that the new full-length Terra gives “the aliens as much of a character and as much sympathy and complexity as we do for the humans” in an alien film. The plot centers on Mala (voiced by Evan Rachel Wood), living on the planet Terra where peace and tolerance are the norm. Little does Mala know that the inhabitants of Earth have exhausted their resources and are searching for a new home. Terra also features the voices of Dennis Quaid and Luke Wilson among others.

In collaboration with Exposed: Inside Film at EMP|SFM, Revolution Bar & Grill is pleased to offer a film-themed happy hour before the screenings. Stop by the restaurant to mingle and take advantage of appetizer and drink specials from 5:30 to 7 p.m. For more information visit Revolution Bar & Grill online.
