Event Description

Director Allison Anders in Person!

(1992) dir Allison Anders w/Brooke Adams, Ione Skye, Fairuza Balk, James Brolin, Robert Knepper, J Mascis [101 min; DCP]
We are honored to bring Allison Anders back to the Brattle to celebrate the 25th anniversary of GAS FOOD LODGING as part of our “A Year of Women in Cinema” program. One of the darlings of the American indie film scene in the 90s, Anders has a talent for telling poetic and poignant stories about strong women in challenging situations. In GAS FOOD LODGING, she brings us to rural New Mexico, where a single mother and her two daughters are trying to navigate a world that is gently hostile.

“Anders took a sledgehammer to Reaganite sensibilities and showed women who were living on the edge—and in doing so placed herself in the vanguard of the indie wave of the ’90s… Throughout her film career, Anders has brought her tough personal experiences to the screen and challenged audiences to see women in new ways—a legacy directors continue to build on today.” – Melissa Silverstein, Sight & Sound
