Movie Loft presents:
The Hired Hand + Nathan Bowles
Stacks Image 8984
Movie Loft ventures out west in August with a screening of Peter Fonda's directorial debut The Hired Hand. From 1971, a languid, elegiac and gorgeous film that is a Western in suggestion, but more atmosphere and art than the bang-bang shoot-'em-up one might expect from the genre.

Fonda stars as Harry Collings, a drifter who wanders home to his wife Hannah (Verna Bloom) after many years a-saddle with his friend Arch Harris (Warren Oates!). Nothing can be as it ever was though, and trouble comes calling.

One of the finest aspects of the production is the moody and evocative soundtrack by folk musician par excellence Bruce Langhorne. In this spirit, Durham's own banjo (and multi-instrumentalist) extraordinaire Nathan Bowles will perform a solo set preceding the film!

Show up at 7 for hot dogs on the grill and cowboy/western tunes spinning. Nathan Bowles right around 8, with the movie starting about 8:30. More records afterwards.
