IU Cinema Presents: ‘The Rocket’

07:00 pm
IU Cinema (1213 E. 7th Street)

A boy who is believed to bring bad luck leads his family (and a couple of ragged misfits) through Laos to find a new home. After a calamity-filled journey through a land scarred by war, the boy builds a giant rocket to prove he’s not cursed and to enter the most lucrative but dangerous competition of the year: a rocket festival. The Rocket is a rite of passage story of a boy’s journey through grief, guilt and self-doubt, and his reconciliation with his father – set against the timely universal themes of the displacement of people by industry and the legacy of war. Lao language with English subtitles. (2K DCP presentation)

Cost: $3 for students, $6 for public (pick up tickets at the IU Auditorium box office during regular hours or 30 minutes prior to any IU Cinema screening)
