Down by Law is a 1986 black-and-white independent film written and directed by Jim Jarmusch with Tom Waits, John Lurie, and Roberto Benigni.The film centers on the arrest, incarceration, and escape from jail of three men. It discards jailbreak film conventions by focusing on the interaction between the convicts rather than on the mechanics of the escape. A key element in the film is Robby Müller’s slow-moving camerawork, which captures the architecture of New Orleans and the Louisiana bayou to which the cellmates escape.
Plus fabulous subversive shorts!
SANTA CRUZ GUERILLA DRIVE-IN is an outdoor movie theatre under the stars and inside that springs up unexpectedly in the fields and industrial wastelands. Beyond showing great movies and bringing a broad community together, part of our mission is to help reclaim public space and break down alienation in this urban environment. www.guerilladrivein.org
