Film - Bloody Mondays and Strawberry Pies
December 16 - December 20, 2009
Bloody Mondays and Strawberry Pies by Coco Schrijber (2008, 80 min.). A substantial part of life is claimed by boredom, and this experimental documentary explores the art of doing nothing. A girl in a strawberry pie factory, a stressed desert nomad, a Wall Street stockbroker, a WWII spy, and Brenda Spencer—who, at 16, shot 11 people because she didn’t like Mondays—are the characters in this film. John Malkovich gives voice to the inner bored human asking us to define boredom and why it comes with negative connotations.
