The Weekly: October 29, 2020

Happy Halloween!!

Most important thing this week: make sure you vote. 
If you're voting early in-person, you can track wait lines at polling places so you can plan snacks accordingly. (Calories don't count if you're in line to vote, that's a well known fact) You can check every early voting location by clicking the red button dropdown. Also! Early voting hours have been extended until 9pm through Nov. 2 at the City County Building, to help court the night-owl vote.

Voting by mail? HAND DELIVER YOUR BALLOT! It's too late in the game to drop it in the mailbox & all ballots must be received by NOON on Tuesday.

You can drop it at the monitored bin at the City County Building or the Election Service Center (3737 E. Washington St.) from 8am-5pm or hand it to an election worker at any early voting site. No need to wait in line!

If, like most of the Kan-Kan staff, you've already voted early and are tired of being told to: thank you! You're free! Here's a small reward

Ok that's all we got re: democracy. Send us some pictures of your cool movie-inspired Halloween costumes. Have a safe & treat-filled week!

- The Kan-Kan Team

ps: Alex Gibney's newest doc about the federal response to COVID, Totally Under Control is now available to stream for freeeeeee on the NEON site. Go check it out: you do, unfortunately, know how it ends.

Mon. 11/9, 7pm: Film: Our National Family Album

As part of this year's Spirit & Place Festival, the Kan-Kan is hosting an online panel to discuss the importance of film in preserving the stories of our 20th & 21st century lives. What do these stories say to us now? What will be the stories from the extraordinary time we are in today? Before our conversation, we urge all attendees to screen the documentary These Amazing Shadows, which tells the story of the National Film Registry, how the visual medium of film is our nation's family album and why it matters. This event is free, but pre-registration is required. Learn more and sign up!

Fri. 10/30, 5pm and 8pm: Monster Mash presented by the Indianapolis Men's Chorus

They'll do the mash, they'll do the monster mash

They'll do the mash, they did the monster mash

NEW to Kan-Kan On-Demand

The Donut King

Ted’s story is one of fate, love, survival, hard knocks, and redemption. It’s the rags to riches story of a refugee escaping Cambodia, arriving in America in 1975 and building an unlikely multi-million-dollar empire baking America’s favorite pastry, the donut. Ted sponsored hundreds of visas for incoming refugees and helped them get on their feet teaching them the ways of the donut business. By 1979 he was living the American Dream. But, in life, great rise can come with great falls.

Coming Home Again

Coming Home Again is a 2019 American-South Korean drama film directed by Wayne Wang and starring Justin Chon. It is based on a 1995 New Yorker essay by Chang-Rae Lee, who co-wrote the screenplay with Wang. The film premiered as part of the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.

A stop-motion animated skeleton takes drastic measures when he learns the film for which he was created is being rebooted without him.

Watch our Short of the Week

Heeeeeeeeeeere's an opportunity to support local art!

You know what's scarier than being trapped at the Overlook Hotel? Not being able to open because of a global pandemic. (Though this may be recency bias) (and working for Stanley Kubrick is no joke) 

If you can, please consider contributing to the Indianapolis Film Project, the engine that powers the (currently virtual) Kan-Kan and our staff. Every little bit counts: whether your donation is $5, $50, or just sharing the work of the Kan-Kan & IFP with someone in your life. Gift cards for future visits (Kan-Kan or Brasserie!) are also available.

Every little bit helps out the Indianapolis Film Project, the engine that powers the (currently virtual) Kan-Kan and our staff. Your contributions means the world to us. We cannot wait to welcome you to our corner of Windsor Park, and really appreciate your support and attention while we wait.
