An Invitation to See Double
Sent to mailinglist subscribers on July 4, 2014
Filmworks invites you to take a sneak peek into the mind of “The Double” director Richard Ayoade — a glimpse that actually requires the audience to do a double-take.
Ayoade, the British filmmaker who got his start in comedy, has built a cult following as a music video director for some of the biggest names in alternative rock, including Vampire Weekend and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Check out this introduction to the videos of Ayoade, who Filmworks President Jefferson Beavers says, “often blends clashing cinematic influences into his short works.”
Over at the Village Voice, Ayoade is praised for the “double” world he has created — a world of “dark playfulness” that follows two identical characters who couldn’t be more different. With conflicting doppelgangers clashing in a dark comedy, it seems as though Ayoade is inviting you to see things differently — literally.
Don’t miss “The Double,” featuring young stars Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska, on July 11. Tickets are on sale now. Get them today for the 5:30 or the 8:30 p.m. screening!
