MICROSERIES Now playing at The Trylon
Though they range from a surreal ecclesiastical war-overture to a gripping docu-realist love story, the four movies in this month's microseries all have in common a tendency to be overlooked. Watch them for the first time (or the seventy-ninth) and decide for yourself if they truly deserve the footnote treatment they received from audiences and/or critics of yesteryear. Weekends in April at the Trylon.
