ArtHouse | GIBFF & BCH Presents...

Food & Film Monthly Screening Series: THE FITS

The Gary International Black Film Festival and Chicago's Black Cinema House come together in partnership with Anna Rose Holmer's surreal film THE FITS and a special performance by the Michigan City Soul Steppers Drill Team Inc. at ArtHouse: A Social Kitchen! Thursday, May 24th 6-8PM join us for motion picture art and culinary adventure as we bring this powerful film to the center stage in our monthly Food & Film series. Each month come savor independent films paired with complimentary small tastings and refreshments from Arthouse: A Social Kitchen's emerging chefs.

ABOUT THE FILM

THE FITS is a psychological portrait of 11-year-old Toni-a tomboy assimilating to a tight-knit dance team in Cincinnati's West End. Enamored by the power and confidence of this strong community of girls, Toni eagerly absorbs routines, masters drills, and even pierces her own ears to fit in. When a mysterious outbreak of fainting spells plagues the team, Toni's desire for acceptance is twisted.

FREE ADMISSION | DONATIONS ACCEPTED. Doors open at 6PM.

RSVP strongly encouraged to reserve your seat: http://ArtHouseFoodandFilm.eventbrite.com
