I wasn’t at Sundance in 2008 when Ari Gold’s “Adventures Of Power” played, but I’ve spent the nearly-two-years since then greatly entertained by the idea that there’s an indie filmmaker named “Ari Gold” right now.
The film, which I still haven’t seen, opens Friday in LA at the Sunset 5 for a limited engagement, and in the meantime, the filmmakers are kicking things off Tuesday night in LA with a premiere party that’s also a fundraiser, and which you can attend. The evening caps off with a secret show from a very cool LA band I’ve seen live a few times, and they always put on a great show.
Here are the details if you’re interested:
