Indie Film Producer Christine Vachon to Visit IU Cinema and Take Part in Pride Film Festival
Vachon, the co-founder of New York City-based independent film production company Killer Films, has been the driving force behind some of the most original filmmakers of the past two decades. A few of her 75 production credits include “Far From Heaven,” “Kids,” “I’m Not There,” “I Shot Andy Warhol” and “Boys Don’t Cry,” as well as the HBO miniseries “Mildred Pierce.” Vachon will speak as a part of the Jorgensen Guest Filmmaker Lecture Series, sponsored by the Ove W Jorgensen Foundation. Vachon’s lecture is free on 3 p.m. Friday, February 1, and no tickets are required. The screening of “Mildred Pierce” is free but ticketed, and tickets for all other films are 43 each. Tickets can be obtained at the IU Auditorium Box Office from 1-5 p.m. Monday through Friday; one hour before any screening at the cinema; or by phone at 812-855-1103 for a $10 service fee to order. Vachon is scheduled to be present for the “Mildred Pierce” episode, after which she’ll discuss her work, as well as “I Shot Andy Warhol” and “I’m Not There.” She’s also set to take part in a panel discussion titled “The Past and Future of LGBTQ Film” at 2 p.m. Feb. 2 with Brenda Webb of Reeling, Chicago’s LGBTQ film festival, and Danielle McClelland of the Buskirk Chumley Theater.

These are the seven examples of her work the cinema will screen:

  • 6:30 p.m. Jan. 27, “Far From Heaven.” The story of a privileged 1950s housewife dips into a repressed world of emotion and desire that crosses racial and sexual boundaries.
  • 6:30 p.m. Jan. 31, “Dragonslayer.” An intimate portrait of Josh “Skreech” Sandoval, a 23-year-old skate legend from a California suburb.
  • 9:30 p.m. Jan. 31, “Kids.” Scripted by a 19-year-old, this film captures inner-city kids’ attitudes about sex, drugs and other harsh realities of life.
  • 6:30 p.m. Feb. 1, “Mildred Pierce.” The first episode in the story of a middle-class, single mother struggling to earn her daughter’s love during the Great Depression.
  • 9:30 p.m. Feb. 1, “I Shot Andy Warhol.” Based on the true story of a 1960s radical feminist writer’s relationship with the famed artist.
  • 6:30 p.m. Feb. 2, “I’m Not There.” Director Todd Haynes’ interpretation of the many lives and music of Bob Dylan.
  • 9:30 p.m. Feb. 2, “Shut Up and Play the Hits.” The four-hour farewell concert given by dance-punk band LCD Soundsystem in 2011 at Madison Square Garden.


“The Week of Chocolate” Starts This Week!
This is a week-long community-wide festival that has existed for over 10 years from Saturday, January 26-Saturday, February 2! Every day of the week a different nonprofit organization hosts a chocolate themed fundraising event to raise money in support of t heir mission. All funds raised at each event go directly to the agency putting on the event. LIFEDESIGNS organizes the set-up for the festival and acts as the hosting agency for the WOC overall, but the WOC is a great collaboration between all 8 agencies involved and would not be a success without everyone involved. For more information, to see a schedule of events, or buy tickets, please go to the Week of Chocolate website.
