BAM Announces New Indie-Film Series


The Brooklyn Academy of Music's Sundance at BAM series may have been discontinued, but fear not — the institution is replacing it with the BAMcinemaFEST, a similar series highlighting the best pictures selected from a number of top film festivals. Some of the hotly anticipated features that have been announced include Andrew Bujalski's Beeswax, Robert Siegel's Big Fan, and British comedian Armando Iannucci's In the Loop, starring James Gandolfini. Film buffs hoping for something of a more classic vintage should make note of a June 27 screening of Fritz Lang's masterpiece, Metropolis, which will be set to a live score performed by 3epkano, an experimental music group from Ireland.
