20th Anniversary screening with writer/director/star Cory McAbee in person!

The story of a rare-goods trading astronaut’s intergalactic adventures, this playfully odd object is the creation of Cory McAbee, who wrote the music as well as writing, directing, and playing the lead. A gumbo of genres – musical, western, comedy, sci-fi, experimental – The American Astronaut obsesses over women, who are talked about but rarely seen, revealing a strange world of ruminating men, meeting in taverns and worshipping at the feet of “The Boy Who Actually Saw a Woman’s Breast.” Comparisons to David Lynch and Guy Maddin may be hard to escape, but this is inventive and inimitable in its own right, with muddy black and white cinematography and a line-up of craggy faced men who aren’t too tough to break out into song.
