Summertime

Carlos López Estrada · 2021 · USA
95min · DCP
Playing Jul 29 through Aug 4

From the director of BLINDSPOTTING, this wonderful spoken-word musical was barely shown in theaters last summer. This is its Seattle theatrical premiere as far as we know! Over the course of a hot summer day in Los Angeles, the lives of 25 young Angelinos intersect. A skating guitarist, a tagger, two wannabe rappers, an exasperated fast-food worker, a limo driver—they all weave in and out of each other's stories. Through poetry they express life, love, heartache, family, home, and fear. One of them just wants to find someplace that still serves good cheeseburgers. 

“It feels like Slacker for a new generation…”Amy Nicholson, FilmWeek (KPCC – NPR Los Angeles)

“On paper, it sounds iffy; in execution, however, it’s absolutely glorious, a gleeful glide through adolescence.” Odie Henderson, RogerEbert.com
