I Am the Bluebird

When: Tue., Aug. 4, 7-9 p.m. 2009

Writer/director Thomas Verrette says he began to write the script for his movie I Am the Bluebird because he was feeling paranoid about developments in memory-altering technology. Verrette's paranoia, however, is not unfounded. According to the New York Times, State University of New York researchers have developed a drug that can wipe clean the short-term memory of lab rats. While the implications of these findings are ambiguous, the film's appeal is not — it won the Audience Award at Sundance this year. I Am the Bluebird, which will play at 7 tonight at Venue 515 (515 Manitou Ave., Manitou Springs, 502-7057,) follows a young man who has just woken up from surgery with short-term memory loss and has to piece together the events leading up to the procedure. Tickets are $5-$6. — Viginia Leise

Price: $5-$6
