Join us for a screening of the Vancouver cult classic. Directed by Dennis Hopper and starring him and Linda Manz. Admission is by donation. Limited capacity. RSVP required at thepolygon.ca Out of the Blue Director: Dennis Hopper Length: 93 minutes Shocking. Controversial. Unforgettable. Dennis Hopper’s brilliant punk rock masterpiece of teenage rebellion is ready for a long-awaited new close-up. A kind of spiritual sequel (and warning counterpoint) to Hopper’s own Easy Rider, Out of the Blue chronicles the idealism of the 1960s towards the nebulous nihilism of the 1980s. Don Barnes (Dennis Hopper) is a trucker in prison for drunkenly crashing his rig into a school bus. Linda Manz (Days of Heaven) plays her daughter Cebe, a rebellious teenager obsessed with Elvis and The Sex Pistols. His mother (Sharon Farrell) is a waitress, injects drugs and takes refuge in the arms of other men. Cebe flees to Vancouver’s punk scene and ends up on probation under the care of psychiatrist Raymond Burr. After Don’s release, the family struggles to reconnect before the revelation of dark secrets leads to a heartbreaking conclusion.
