This Sunday, MN Unearthed Film Series returns to showcase unusual award-winning films by local filmmakers. The evening, however, will open with a screening of two films penned by British scholar Neil Fox: the mourning-themed It's Natural to Be Afraid and the French new wave/noir style Clandestine (scored by Sigur Ros). Both pieces will serve as reference points, as his latest work, A Passing Place, will be screened tonight as well. The piece was directed by series curator Dan S. The Uptown Theater will also feature heavily during the event: Three showcased films — Ned Abdul Needs More Retail Space Or: How To Say Goodbye to an Old Friend; Goodbye, Uptown; and Double Mint, a music video for Complexes — were shot in the old theater before renovations began last summer. Finally, McKnight Fellow Stephen Gurewitz will screen his new film, Madison St., a documentary about a 76-year-old man who moves to Tucson, Arizona, leaving his older brother to live in their childhood home on the eponymous street.
