Alex Cox Presents: Tombstone Rashomon

English filmmaker Alex Cox, legendary director of the independent hits Repo Man and Sid and Nancy, visits the Rafael to present a screening of his latest film, Tombstone Rashomon

Filmmaker Alex Cox will present and discuss his latest project, a retelling of the fabled Gunfight at the O.K. Corral with a contemporary twist.

Establishing the premise that time-traveling filmmakers have landed in 1881 Tombstone one day after the Earp brothers and Doc Holliday faced-off with the Clanton and McLaury brothers, Cox reconstructs the deadly event in the style of Akira Kurosawa’s masterpiece Rashomon, with survivors being interviewed and offering their different (and conflicting) perspectives of the shootout.

A cast of largely non-professional actors and slyly crafted special effects bring this low-budget drama to life.
