Upcoming In-Person

WE INTEND TO CAUSE HAVOC follows the formations of Zambia’s most popular rock band of the 1970s, W.I.T.C.H., and documents the life of its lead singer. Through the resurrection of a music that was forgotten by many and unheard by most, the film explores the life of a former African rockstar, and the excitement around the rediscovery of his music by a new generation of fans.
Wed, 9/28
Directing his camera towards the strip of pavement below his balcony, director Pawel Lozinski strikes up conversations with a colorful procession of locals, relatives, passersby, and houseless people. Creating a space for dialogue, his sidewalk becomes a stage presenting every facet of contemporary Polish life. Followed by a pre-filmed discussion between director Pawel Lozinski and Amherst Cinema's George Myers. Free to Amherst Cinema Members!
Thu, 9/29
One of the great disappointments of the straight-to-VOD wave of 2020/21 was the denial of a proper theatrical release for this instant cult comedy. We're so excited to laugh along with Kristen Wiig, Annie Mumolo, and a huge supporting cast—on the big screen! Hold onto your culottes.
