Eve Sussman's The Rape of the Sabine Women

I just wanted to bring to everyone's attention this incredible event happening this evening.

Art House is hosting a screening of Eve Sussman's The Rape of the Sabine Women. This piece should be an epic, cinematic interpretation of the myth in which Roman men, desperate for mates descend on their neighboring Sabine villages to abduct their daughters and wives.

Sussman's mid-century modern interpretation should be nothing less than stunning, presented in HD and surround sound, and at Austin's Paramount Theater no less.

I had a chance to see 89 Seconds at Alcazar a couple years ago and it was pretty fantastic. Thanks to Art House for bringing this terrific event our way.
