Truth or Consequences
Online Tickets Now Available
Truth or Consequences is a speculative documentary about time and how we weave the past into the present and our possible future. Set in the small desert town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, the film takes place in the shadow of the world’s first commercial Spaceport. Subtly set in a near future when space travel has begun, the film follows five residents in the town. Anchored in observational documentary footage filmed over three years, the film weaves together archival footage, experimental virtual reality worlds, an improvised score by Bill Frisell and a speculative premise based on current events – a launch site for commercial space travel outside of town. These intertwine to create a lyrical meditation on progress, history, and how we navigate a sense of loss within ourselves and a changing world.
HELP SAVE THE SCREENING ROOM!
PLEASE VISIT OUR GOFUNDME PAGE TO HELP SAVE THE THEATER!
Since the pandemic started, we have been able to keep up on some of our bills from our emergency fund, very small rentals, and a few online screenings. That money has not been enough and now our bills are piling up. Unless we get help, The Screening Room won’t survive. The amount we are asking for will pay essential bills, and will keep us from closing down.
The Screening Room has been part of this community for over 30 years and is the home to the Arizona International Film Festival (Arizona’s longest running film festival), Arizona Underground Film Festival, Tucson Film and Music Festival, Tucson Terrorfest, Apex Film Festival and many more film festivals in our community. It has been home to countless local film premieres, arthouse independent films, and a hub for local filmmakers to show their work on the big screen. It is also home to the popular Keep Tucson Sketchy, comedy shows, fundraisers, birthdays, and even weddings. The Screening Room has worked to provide a space and a theater for the entire community, and now The Screening Room needs your help.
