The Disaster Artist
January 29, 2018 @ 9:15 pm - 11:30 pm€9 – €10
Being the director of one of the worst films ever made is not easy. Tommy Wiseau holds this doubtful honor thanks to The Room, a film he made in 2003 and was shown internationally since then.
James Franco watched this catastrophic work of art and decided he wanted to do a film about Wiseau and the shooting of the film. With this idea, The Disaster Artist was born in 2017, a film, a biography, and a tribute to Wiseau’s work.
This story began when Greg Sestero (author of the book with the same name, The Disaster Artist) met Tommy Wiseau in an acting class and they moved to Los Angeles to find more opportunities in the film industry. Tired of being rejected by agencies and casting directors, Tommy decided he will make a film and Sestero will star it. Their relationship wasn’t always easy, but in the end, they made it. As they say, if you follow your dreams, maybe they come true. In this case, the perseverance was key, even if the results were not as Wiseau expected. Sometimes the worst can be the best if you have enough sense of humor. A film to laugh aloud!
