About Rooftop Films:

Rooftop Films’ mission is to engage and inspire diverse communities by showing movies in outdoor locations, supporting the production of new independent films, helping local organizations to produce screenings and events, and renting equipment at low-cost to artists and nonprofits. Rooftop Films is more than a film festival. We are a community. We are a collective collaboration between filmmakers and festivals; between audience members and artists; between venues and neighborhoods. Our goal is to nurture a vibrant independent filmmaking and film-going community not only by exhibiting the work of emerging filmmakers, but also by providing essential support systems for those who otherwise have none.

NANCY

Christina Choe | USA | 87

“Nancy” is a provocative psychological thriller about love, intimacy, and trust – and what happens when lies become truth. Craving connection with others, Nancy creates elaborate identities and hoaxes under pseudonyms on the internet. When she meets a couple whose daughter went missing thirty years ago, fact and fiction begin to blur in Nancy’s mind, and she becomes increasingly convinced these strangers are her real parents. As their bond deepens, reasonable doubts give way to willful belief – and the power of emotion threatens to overcome all rationality. A Samuel Goldwyn Films release. “Nancy” is the 2014 Recipient of the Rooftop Films and Eastern Effects Equipment Grant.

Starring Ava Gardner, this fantasy comedy and musical follows the capers of a statue of Venus from a store window display brought to life. The window dresser in charge of the display, having kissed the statue on a whim, accidentally brings her to life, setting off a chain of increasingly wild escapades, casting a love spell on all who cross her path. As reviewed by Variety, Gardner’s performance is “bountifully physical and alluring, delivered with a delightfully sly instinct for comedy.”

The film will begin promptly at 1:30 on the second floor of the library. Seating is first come, first served.
