The original plan was to premiere “Visioneers” last week, the night before “Defending the University: A ‘Teach-in’ on the Current Crisis”: but the weather didn’t cooperate. Now, KCSB 91.9 FM has officially re-scheduled its free screening of Visioneers — a corporate-dystopian comedy starring alt-comedy icon Zach Galifianakis (“The Hangover”) — and it’s going to be tomorrow. That’s right, our “At the Bike-In” premiere will be on Tuesday, October 20th, and we’ll be projecting “Visioneers” directly onto Storke Tower!
Showtime is 8pm. Bring a blanket, a jacket, and a bunch of friends for an inaugural film screening.
First time feature filmmaker Jared Drake makes his directorial debut with this quirky black comedy set in the near future, and concerning a curious spike in cases of spontaneous human combustion. The Jeffers Corporation is the largest business in the history of mankind, and they got that way thanks to their strict philosophy of happiness through mindless productivity. But when people begin literally exploding due to unhappiness, Jeffers Corporation Level Three TUNT George Washington Winsterhammerman (Zach Galifianakis) begins to fear that his time will come sooner rather than later.
George lives a comfortable yet completely uneventful life, and when he starts having dreams in which he’s the first President of the United States, his doctor informs him that they could be signs of impending explosion. Later, as the dreams become more frequent and his co-workers continue to detonate, George is prompted to reevaluate his mundane existence. Judy Greer, Missi Pyle, and James LeGros co-star in an existential black comedy featuring music by Tim DeLaughter of the Polyphonic Spree
