Dive into the highly-stylized watery world of Wes Anderson in this quirky, whimsical, and delightful cinematic voyage. Renowned oceanographer Steve Zissou has sworn vengeance upon the rare shark that devoured a member of his crew. In addition to his regular team, he is joined on his boat by Ned, a man who believes Zissou to be his father, and Jane, a journalist pregnant by a married man. They travel the sea, all too often running into pirates and, perhaps more traumatically, various figures from Zissou’s past, including his estranged wife, Eleanor. So, don your little red beanie, strap on your safety jacket, and get ready to set sail!

Screening beforehand is an exclusive conversation with the legendary musician, composer, visual artist and co-founder of DEVO, the one and only Mark Mothersbaugh! He talks about composing the score, working with Wes and his brand new book, Apotropaic Beatnik Graffiti.
