Everyone has ideas. But what where do they come from? And what ensures they keep coming? How do you sort the genius ideas from the useless ones? Why invest all this hope and energy into making things in the first place?

From Nothing, Something profiles creative thinkers across a variety of disciplines and finds common methods, habits, mindsets and neuroses that help bring breakthrough ideas into being. This is a thoughtful, intimate, often funny look at the creative process - straight from the brains of some of our culture's most accomplished and inspiring talents.
Documentary. 79 minutes. HD. USA. English. 16:9. Color.

Departures (2008) is a Japanese film by Yojiro Takita which won Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film at the 81st Oscars in 2009 and the Japan Academy Prize for Picture of the Year at the 32nd Japan Academy Prize. The film tells a story about the historic Japanese "encoffining" ceremony (nŨkan) in which professional morticians ritually dress and prepare bodies before placing them in coffins.

Join us on the 4th Thursday of each month for a featured film and complimentary popcorn for a suggested donation of $5. Our goal is to provide a monthly gathering place for film buffs to explore, discuss and celebrate the diversity of film: contemporary and classics, narrative as well as documentaries, those that highlight the culture of America but also different parts of the world.
