THE DAWN WALL Fundraiser for The Rock Dump
Oct 22 @ 7:00 pm

In January, 2015, American rock climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson captivated the world with their effort to climb The Dawn Wall, a seemingly impossible 3,000 foot rock face in Yosemite National Park, California.

The pair lived on the sheer vertical cliff for weeks, igniting a frenzy of global media attention.

But for Tommy Caldwell, The Dawn Wall was much more than just a climb. It was the culmination of a lifetime defined by overcoming obstacles. At the age of 22, the climbing prodigy was taken hostage by rebels in Kyrgyzstan. Shortly after, he lost his index finger in an accident, but resolved to come back stronger. When his marriage fell apart, he escaped the pain by fixating on the extraordinary goal of free climbing The Dawn Wall.

Blurring the line between dedication and obsession, Caldwell and his partner Jorgeson spend six years meticulously plotting and practicing their route. On the final attempt, with the world watching, Caldwell is faced with a moment of truth. Should he abandon his partner to fulfill his ultimate dream, or risk his own success for the sake of their friendship?

J.U.M.P. Society Membership Open House Soiree!
Oct 24 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

JUMP Society Membership Night!

The JUMP Society has been active in Juneau since 2002 but we’re relatively new to being a non-profit organization. Our by-laws say we’re supposed to hold an annual membership meeting but we’re picturing it more as an open house, party, screening, hands-on film-making night.

We want to get local filmmakers together to talk about work, dream about future projects and just hang out. And we want to share that with the community in a meaningful way.

We’re just in the planning phases now, get in touch if you have ideas! Here’s what we’ve been getting excited about so far…

Screenings!
Of course we couldn’t resist the chance to dust off some old classics. We’re going to throw a bunch of old films in rotation and have them running all night. Any requests? Any offerings?

Hands-on Filmmaking Activities
We’ll have a stop motion animation station setup and possibly a green screen or VFX station as well so people can roll up their sleeves and mess around with filmmaking.  If you’re a filmmaker and want to take the lead on an other activity, let us know!

Prop Museum
We’ll be turning the hallway into a pop-up museum for JUMP Society props. Perhaps a “Valley Go Home” sign from a certain JUMP Society classic?  And Anton Doiron will bring in some of his handmade props from that local classic, Space Trucker Bruce.  Anyone else have props to contribute? Maybe we can talk Arlo into bringing his pimped out couch or find Frankie’s garbage can lid?  Please contact us to contribute.

JUMP Society Lab
Did you know the JUMP Society now exists in a physical location? We’ve got a multimedia space we’re in the process of outfitting just down the hall from the Gold Town and it will soon be accessible to JUMP Society members who want a place to edit films, shoot interviews, experiment with lighting, record podcasts or try out a green screen.

We’re still setting up the space and accepting donations of decent computers, microphones, mixers, lights and other resources that might benefit local filmmakers. We’ve started a small library stocked with screenplays, books on screenwriting, magazines and films from all over Alaska. Anyone want to check out “Raven’s Blood” on VHS?

So when is all this happening?
Wednesday, October 24th, 5:30 – 7:30
At Gold Town Theater & JUMP Society Lab in the Emporium.

If you have ideas for what you’d like this event to be, please get in touch and let us know!

GOOD MANNERS
Oct 24 @ 7:00 pm
IT’S A FULL MOON SO TIME FOR A HALLOWEEN TREAT!!
Filmmakers Juliana Rojas and Marco Dutra’s second collaboration (after the acclaimed Hard Labor) deftly integrates art-house and genre cinema to create a thrilling and dark gothic fable with sharp social commentary.
Set in São Paulo, the film follows Clara, a lonely nurse from the outskirts of the city who is hired by mysterious and wealthy Ana to be the nanny of her soon to be born child. Against all odds, the two women develop a strong bond. But a fateful night marked by a full moon changes their plans.
With powerful visuals and an impecable cinematography (by Zama’s Rui Poças), Good Manners is Disney meets Jacques Tourneur. The film becomes an unexpected and wild werewolf movie unlike any other, and a poignant social and racial allegory on modern-day Brazilian society.
