Event Details

A special after hours showing, with appetizers, of the film featured in the May 2017 issue of 10964: The Palisades Newsletter. Joining us to introduce the film will be film director (“Charlie Hoboken”, “Undertow”), Palisades resident, and writer of the newsletter's "Little Known Films" column, Tom Mazziotti.

(2007, Rated PG-13, Sony Picture Classics, Dir. Bent Hamer, 90 min., Norwegian with English subtitles): The moment the train leaves the station without engineer Odd Horten (Brad Owe) aboard, he realizes the path ahead is a journey without printed timetables and well-known stations. Horten has been forced to retire after 40 years of traveling a very stable rail, and the platform does not feel like a safe place anymore. His orderly, solitary existence is about to give way to a future of unlikely adventures and puzzling dilemmas.
