The Upside

The screening of “The Upside,” a film distributed by The Weinstein Company (TWC), has been cancelled. Given the serious allegations of sexual misconduct against TWC co-founder Harvey Weinstein, SLIFF has decided to replace the film with a work that specifically addresses such issues. The fest will offer a special presentation of “The Light of the Moon” (U.S., 2017, 95 min.), which also plays the fest on Nov. 6 and 8 at Plaza Frontenac. This new screening — in the same time slot that “The Upside” was scheduled — will be held at 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 9, at the main house of the Tivoli Theatre. A panel about sexual violence against women will follow the screening. The panel will be organized by Safe Connections, one of the St. Louis region’s oldest and largest organizations working to prevent and end domestic and sexual violence while helping survivors reclaim their lives. Cinema St. Louis is donating the proceeds of the screening to Safe Connections.
