Local theater actor Brian Taraz (The Rogue Theatre and Beowulf Alley) will be presenting the world premiere of what he calls "a horrifyingly whacky independent film starring himself" called FOOSBALL: The Movie. It screens at 7 p.m., tonight, Thursday, Nov. 17, at The Screening Room, 127 E. Congress St. Tickets are $5.
Summary (from Taraz):
Paul (Taraz) is a dorky math teacher whose sense of "style" is stuck in the 70's. He is an avid foosballer and believes he is God's gift to women. When he befriends a young beach stud (Andy Feld) while playing foosball at a bar - well there's no place to go but to the World Championships.
Along the way there is (possibly) incest, bad disco dancing, foosball philosophy and an escaped crazed ex-boyfriend. And of course the cameo appearances by Candy Zappa - Frank's little sister. Those who have seen it will swear that its definitely the definition of "Independent Film".
Produced by Art Utnehmer of San Diego and James Bronson of Arizona. A couple of shorts will be shown before with a guest screening of a film with Robert Anthony Peters (The Rogue Theatre).
