‘Stone Age Cinema’ Free Film Screening
Mar 20 @ 4:00 pm
'Stone Age Cinema' Free Film Screening @ Mary D. Fisher Theatre | Sedona | Arizona | United States

The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to partner with the Verde Valley Archaeology Center to present a free film series celebrating National Archaeology Month on Wednesday, March 20. There will be one show at 4 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

The March 20 event will feature “Stone Age Cinema”, directed by Pascal Cuissot and Marc Azéma.

Did you think the first movies were screened in a cinema? According to groundbreaking discoveries, our prehistoric ancestors may have invented the concept while drawing on their walls. Over the past 150 years, we have discovered many examples of amazing prehistoric art, most of which are fascinating representations of animals.

Today, a new reading of these paintings and engravings has revealed the existence of numerous cases of the breakdown of movement. A horse painting from the Lascaux caves in France, for example, is made up of many versions of the animal representing different positions of movement. Director and archeologist Marc Azema extracts these individual images and displays them in succession, demonstrating how they play back like a cartoon.

This documentary takes us right back to the beginnings of Homo sapiens’ artistic heritage to discover these graphic narratives, in a unique investigation into the cultural DNA of humanity.

Ken Zoll — director of the Verde Valley Archaeology Center — will lead a discussion and Q&A session after the screening.

“Stone Age Cinema” will show at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Wednesday, March 20 at 4 p.m. For your free tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona. For more information, visit: www.SedonaFilmFestival.org.

‘The Wedding Guest’ Film Premiere
Mar 20 @ 7:00 pm
'The Wedding Guest' Film Premiere @ Mary D. Fisher Theatre | Sedona | Arizona | United States

The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the acclaimed new drama “The Wedding Guest” March 15-20 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

This propulsive, globetrotting thriller from acclaimed director Michael Winterbottom is a breathless tour through the shadowy underworlds and hidden realms of Pakistan and India.

Jay (Academy Award-nominee Dev Patel) is a man with a secret who travels from Britain to Pakistan to attend a wedding — armed with duct tape, a gun, and a plan to kidnap the bride-to-be (Radhika Apte).

Despite his cool efficiency, the plot quickly spirals out of control, sending Jay and his hostage on the run across the border and through the railway stations, back alleys, and black markets of New Delhi — as all the while attractions simmer, loyalties shift, and explosive secrets are revealed.

Pulsating with the sights and sounds of the Indian subcontinent, “The Wedding Guest” conjures a colorful world where danger lurks at every turn and nothing is as it seems.

“The Wedding Guest” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre March 15-20. Showtimes will be 4 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Monday, March 15, 16 and 18; and 7 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 19 and 20.

‘Out of Blue’ Film Premiere
Mar 22 @ 4:00 pm
'Out of Blue' Film Premiere @ Mary D. Fisher Theatre | Sedona | Arizona | United States

The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the acclaimed new drama “Out of Blue” March 22-25 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

“Out of Blue” features an award-winning ensemble cast, including Patricia Clarkson, James Caan, Toby Jones, Jacki Weaver and Mamie Gummer. The film was a hit at the Toronto and London Film Festivals.

The hunt for a killer draws a detective into an even larger mystery: the nature of the universe itself. Mike Hoolihan (Patricia Clarkson) is an unconventional New Orleans cop investigating the murder of renowned astrophysicist Jennifer Rockwell (Mamie Gummer), a black hole expert found shot to death in her observatory.

As Mike tumbles down the rabbit hole of the disturbing, labyrinthine case, she finds herself grappling with increasingly existential questions of quantum mechanics, parallel universes, and exploding stars—cosmic secrets that may hold the key to unraveling the crime, while throwing into doubt her very understanding of reality.

Awash in dreamlike, neo-noir atmosphere, this one-of-a-kind thriller is both a tantalizing whodunnit and a rich, metaphysical mind-bender.

Critics are calling “Out of Blue” mesmerizing, thrilling, stylish and dazzling.

“Out of Blue” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre March 22-25. Showtimes will be 4 and 7 p.m. on Friday and Monday, March 22 and 25; 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 23; and 7 p.m. on Sunday, March 24.

‘Don Quixote’ from the Royal Ballet
Mar 24 @ 3:00 pm
'Don Quixote' from the Royal Ballet @ Mary D. Fisher Theatre | Sedona | Arizona | United States

The Sedona International Film Festival presents Ballet in Cinema on Sunday, March 24 when it hosts the big screen premiere of “Don Quixote” from the Royal Ballet in London. There will be one show at 3:00 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

Love and friendship triumph in Carlos Acosta’s vibrant production of the dazzling ballet “Don Quixote”. Cervantes’s story of the bumbling knight has inspired countless artistic interpretations.

The knight Don Quixote and his servant, Sancho Panza, meet love-lorn couple Kitri (Akane Takada) and her sweetheart Basilio who are unable to marry as Kitri’s father wants her to marry the wealthy Gamache. Don Quixote, in true heroic style, intervenes and convinces Gamache he would rather marry the barmaid — this allows Kitri and Basilio to wed.

Acosta’s production of Marius Petipa’s 19th-century ballet brings Spanish warmth and joy to the stage. Acosta adds energy and wit to the ballet, particularly with the new choreography for Act II’s gypsy scene, which brings musicians onto the stage to add to the lively atmosphere.

Acosta chose this joyful classic for his first production for the Royal Ballet. His vibrant staging brings together the whole company in such roles as exuberant villagers, passionate gypsies and even fantasy flowers. The story follows Don Quixote’s picturesque journey to do deeds in honor of his imaginary noble lady, Dulcinea.

Sunny, charming, funny and touching, “Don Quixote” is a ballet as full of uplifting emotion as it is of astonishing ballet technique.

“Don Quixote” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre one day only: Sunday, March 24 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $15, or $12.50 for Film Festival members. For tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona.
