Chained for Life

Charlie Korsmo, a Case Western Reserve University law professor and lawyer who's had roles in films such as Hook, What About Bob? and Dick Tracy, returns to the screen in Chained for Life, a new film directed by Adam Schimberg (Go Down Death). Both Korsmo and Schimberg will be on hand when the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque screens the movie at 7:30 tonight. The film also stars Jess Weixler and British actor Adam Pearson (Under the Skin). In the flick, one of the highlights at this past summer’s BAMcinemaFest, Korsmo plays Herr Director, an amalgam of directors R.W. Fassbinder and Werner Herzog. Described as a “meditation on beauty, physical deformities and disabilities, and their appropriation/representation on screen,” the movie chronicles the shooting of a low-budget horror/exploitation film about the gruesome surgical experiments that take place in a hospital. Schimberg and Korsmo will answer audience questions after the screening, the film's local premiere. Tickets cost $12, or $9 for Cinematheque members and students. (Niesel)
