Baikonur / Centerpiece Film - Berlin & Beyond 2012
TICKETS ARE STILL AVAILABLE AT THE BOX OFFICE. Go directly to the Castro Theatre beginning at 9:30am.

Centerpiece Film: Veit Helmer's charming return to the eastern pastoral of his lauded comedy Absurdistan is as delightful as its predecessor with twice as many stars in its eyes. Citing a local proverb that goes: "Whatever falls from heaven, you may keep," the villagers of a tiny Kazakh village make their living selling space debris from rockets launched from the nearby Baikonur Cosmodrome. Iskander, (Alexander Asochakov) who his village has dubbed "Gargarin" for his homemade ham radio and uncanny ability to predict the debris' next landing point, is an integral part of their salvage scheme until he rescues Julie (French model and actress Marie de Villepin), a beautiful "space tourist" who has fallen to Earth after a shuttle malfunction and conveniently lost her memory. She lies in a coma until he kisses her awake and finds out that maybe life isn't a fairy tale after all... --Jackson Scarlett
