Strange Weather - a film by Katherine Dieckmann
The Crossroads Film Society, in conjunction with the Mississippi Film Office, will present director Katherine Dieckmann's feature film Strange Weather, starring Holly Hunter, on February 20 at 7pm at the Malco Grandview Theatre in Madison. Filmed in Mississippi, Strange Weather is a poignant, lyrical drama about a mother (Holly Hunter), who, in an effort to deal with the grief over the death of her son, travels the back roads of the deep South to settle a score.

In a synopsis provided by the films distribution company, Strange Weather tracks an uncompromising woman (Holly Hunter) as she embarks on a trip through the South with her best friend (played by Carrie Coon) to uncover the truth about the one event in her life that she cant get over. In a powerhouse performance as Darcy Baylor, Hunter's character is intelligent and radiant in its complexity, anchoring this lyrical drama that is shot through with regional realism. Strange Weather takes an unforgettable female protagonist and stitches her character's fateful journey to an iconic landscape like thread to a cloth. As the pair traverses a part of the country afflicted by both drought and flood, each stop on the road becomes a key step in Darcy's process of overcoming, giving her a new way to think about her past, and how to transform it into a different kind of future. It is a story about what to give up and what to keep close, about ties that constrict and bonds that comfort, about the universal process of recovering from grief by simultaneously letting go.

Dieckmann will be in attendance to lead a Q&A with local cast, crew and the audience at the February 20 screening.  Robbie Fisher, President of Crossroads Film Society, said of the local screening, "Ms. Dieckmann generously offered this screening as an opportunity to show this made-in-Mississippi film locally, and we are thrilled to be able to share the film with audiences in the greater Jackson area.  The screening will benefit the Crossroads Film Society and the Mississippi Youth Media Project."

Dieckmann is a writer and director. Her other films are Motherhood (2009), Diggers (2006) and A Good Baby (2000). She was the originating director on the groundbreaking serial The Adventures of Pete & Pete, and has directed music videos for R.E.M., Aimee Mann, Wilco, and Vic Chesnutt, among others. She is an associate professor at Columbia University's School of the Arts Film Program where she teaches screenwriting, and she is a creative advisor for The Sundance Institute.

Tickets are $15 and are available for advance purchase through Brown Paper Tickets. Any remaining tickets will be sold at the door for $20. Seating is Limited.  For more information on the Crossroads Film Society, visit www.crossroadsfilmfestival.com.
