The USCB Center for the Arts independent film series is back on after an extensive audio video equipment upgrade.
The series kicks off at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 6, with “Lucky.”
The film follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off-the-map desert town.
Having out-lived and out-smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self-exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment.
Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch’s directorial debut, “Lucky,” is at once a love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton as well as a meditation on mortality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.
Lucky’s all-star cast includes: Harry Dean Stanton, David Lynch, Ron Livingston, Ed Begley Jr., Tom Skerritt and Beth Grant.
According to Variety magazine, “Everything Harry Dean Stanton has done in his career, and his life, has brought has brought him to this moment of triumph in Lucky.”
The Center for the Arts is at 805 Carteret St.
