Selections + Selectors 007: The Notorious Mr. Bout
Gun-running documentary plus live music from The Veldt
Three delicious courses of entertainment await at this pre-Halloween screening and party. First, you'll get to watch The Notorious Mr. Bout, a brilliant documentary based on the memoirs of international gun runner Viktor Bout. Afterward, there's the prospect of a live performance by The Veldt, who'll showcase songs from their forthcoming LP Resurrection Hymns. Dessert comes in the form of a first-class DJ set from resident turntablist Stephanie Roxanne Blanding.
As ever, this documentary demonstrates that true-life stories are often simultaneously more quotidian and bizarre than their Hollywood versions.
