Open to the public


Supported for decades by community funding, a modest arts space in small-town New York suddenly finds its future in question when a group of art-world celebrities and their corporate backers propose a performance space nearby. In his third feature, director Patrick Wang recaptures the risk-taking spirit of classic independent cinema, cleverly weaving themes of gentrification, aging, and the bonds of community into a hilarious, casually epic two-part satire. Between tap-dancing techies, teenage journalists, and two-timing city councilmen, A Bread Factory captures the bittersweet reality of American public life with compassion and conviction. With intermission.
