Film Independent at LACMA has landed four enticing programs to soothe your post-Oscars fatigue this March, beginning with Noah Baumbach’s “While We’re Young” screening March 5.
Baumbach will be there to host a Q&A following his comedy starring Ben Stiller and Naomi Wattas as two approaching-middle-age filmmakers who befriend a younger hipster couple. (Last week we ran new images and a trailer for the film, here.)
On Monday, March 9, Film Independent screens “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief” at LACMA, just before Alex Gibney’s “bombshell” Scientology doc, which premiered at Sundance, plays HBO. (Here’s our take on what to expect.)
On March 19, Jason Reitman’s Live Read series continues with Richard Linklater’s seminal stoner classic “Dazed and Confused,” with a yet-to-be-announced cast that will read the script live for an audience.
Finally, on March 26-27, a two-part “Mad Men” tribute will be held at Film Independent at LACMA, featuring a screening of a classic episode and a conversation with Matthew Weiner and Jon Hamm. The second night of the program features a double bill, and a conversation with more cast members. The final season premieres April 5, 2015.
