In THE UNKNOWN KNOWN, Academy Award-winning director Errol Morris (THE FOG OF WAR) offers a mesmerizing portrait of Donald Rumsfeld, one of the key architects of the Iraq War, and a larger-than-life character who provoked equal levels of fury and adulation from the American public. Rather than conducting a conventional interview, Morris has Rumsfeld perform and expound on his “snowflakes,” tens of thousands of memos (many never previously published) he composed as a congressman and as an advisor to four different presidents, twice as Secretary of Defense. These memos provide a window onto history—not history as it actually happened, but history as Rumsfeld wants us to see it. Morris makes plain that Rumsfeld’s “snowflakes”—whether intended to elucidate, rationalize, obfuscate, or control history—are contradicted by the facts. THE UNKNOWN KNOWN is an illumination of the mystery of Donald Rumsfeld, an unknown known.
"The Unknown Known delivers the type of nuanced, fascinating portrait we've come to expect from Errol Morris, and avoids offering simplistic conclusions about Donald Rumsfeld." - Darren Ruecker, We Got This Covered

Dir. Billy Garberina - 2014 - 95m - an ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS presentation! $8 general / $6 students - Door Prizes Courtesy of STRANGER FACTORY
A seedy downtown bar on a seemingly quiet Sunday morning. Arriving at the doors is the usual collection of drunks, losers and lost souls. But when a batch of very bad booze is introduced into the mix, this group of unlikely, down-on-their-heels heroes must fight back against a growing horde of mutated, brain-eating maggot creatures. Drink up quick. Because Happy Hour is over. This locally-produced horror-comedy comes from the makers of Stiffed and I Heart U and features New Mexico actors Jeremy Owen, Megan Pribyl, Merritt Glover, Aaron Worley and Charlie Dearing. Plus a special appearance by Birdemic star Whitney Moore.
