Free movie screening: Local Color

I used to write about movies when I worked at the newspaper, and the movie studios have been kind enough to keep me in the loop whenever there are any art or craft-inspired flicks.

In this case, it is a wonderful film called Local Color, and the trailer looks like a must-see. If you live in the 602, 480 or 623 area code, you’ll can catch a FREE preview screening! Here is the info they sent me:

To all Fellow Artists,

George Gallo, writer, director and fellow painter invites you to attend a free screening of his new film, LOCAL COLOR.

LOCAL COLOR is about a successful artist who looks back with loving memories on the summer of his defining year, 1974. A talented, but troubled eighteen-year old art student befriends an elderly alcoholic genius painter who has turned his back on not only art, but life. The two form what appears to be at first a tenuous relationship. The kid wants to learn all the secrets the master has locked away inside his head and heart. Time has not been kind to the old master. His life appears pointless to him until the kid rekindles his interest in his work and ultimately gives him the will to live. Together, they give one another a priceless gift. The kid learns to see the world through the master’s eyes. And the master learns to see life through the eyes of innocence again. LOCAL COLOR is based on director George Gallo’s real life experience.

World-renowned painter, Richard Schmid says, “Without a doubt, the strength of the insights in the film are due to the fact that George Gallo besides writing and directing LOCAL COLOR is an accomplished painter in his own right.”

Additionally, George will be in attendance at the screening to host a special post Q&A with the audience.

Our goal is to get this film out to as many that will appreciate the film’s stunning artistic images and George’s message about mentorship in the art community.

Currently the following dates (see below) are available to attend a free screening, all screenings will take place at Harkins Camelview 5 (located across from Scottsdale Fashion Square) and would love to have you join us.

  1. The movie is beautiful indeed. I loved the photography – each scene carefully designed, with great shapes and colors.

    I was touched by the story and saw tears on faces of other people.

    There might have been some technical details that could be improved. At the same time, I would rather see move great movies that are slightly imperfect, rather then extremely expensive superproductions that are fundamentally valueless.

    Was it a chick flick? Probably a bit, but I guess it was acceptable for most of men.

    One way or another – see it by yourself!

  2. Saw this movie tonight at Harkins Camelview in Scottsdale….what a great one it is!! So nice to see a movie that makes you think, makes you feel good and has some depth. While it is a great moving story with much tender heartedness to it, it should NOT be labeled a chick flick at all. People of all ages will enjoy this show… I did, my husband did as did our teenage son. The acting is some of the best we have seen in awhile and the big movie studios in Hollywood sure missed out by not picking this one up…..more power to the independent filmmakers….way to go!! Get out there and see this movie….you will NOT be disappointed. I hope it comes out on DVD soon so we can purchase it for our permanent home movie collection.
