HARD TO BE A GOD AT CENTURY BAR

MONDAY, Dec. 5th 9:30pm, free admission. AT CENTURY! (930 SE Sandy Bldvd.) Earth, in the future, sends Rumata as a spy to a distant planet, to observe and document a civilization stuck in something resembling the Middle Ages. Rumata's job is to develop a report on experimental history, but never to intervene in the affairs of the people or alter their development. But can any man, particularly one armed with the technological advances of millennia, stay neutral in a cruel and violent world? An indelicate balance of winking postmodern meta-narrative and Sci-fi Sword-and-Sorcery peplum (think Conan or Beastmaster), German New Cinema veteran Peter Fleischmann's take on one of the Strugatsky brother's most famous novels alternates between philosophical depth and wacked-out genre play. Featuring Werner Herzog in a cameo role, just to make things even crazier!
