Sunday, March 16: Guerilla Gone Wild 

A hit at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, Escape from Tomorrow certainly is a novel concept. Director Randy Moore decided to shoot most of the movie guerilla-style inside of the Walt Disney World Resort; Moore’s decision is highly ironic since the family drama that unfolds contrasts sharply with Disney’s rep as “the happiest place on earth.” Using handheld video cameras, the film’s crew surreptitiously shot the scene without permission from the notoriously litigious Disney. Gutsy move. The press release accompanying the film states that Moore is “subversively attacking our culture’s obsession with mass entertainment.” While that sentiment has resonated with some reviewers (notably the late Roger Ebert, who loved the movie), the film’s message gets distorted once Moore lets his sci-fi impulses run amuck. The film screens tonight at 8:15 at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
