“THE ANNIHILATION OF FISH”
Tuesday, February 27 at 7:00PM at Metrograph Theater
One of the lesser-known episodes in Charles Burnett’s brilliant career, The Annihilation of Fish stars Lynn Redgrave and James Earl Jones as two fellow boarders in a Los Angeles rooming house run by Margot Kidder. Both are a little past their prime and more than a little cracked—she imagines Giacomo Puccini was her lover, he battles daily with a demonic enemy—but this gives them common ground on which to meet and find a tentative, touching companionship.
