ArcLight Presents Slamdance Cinema Club announced its title lineup in May. It is a joint collaboration to bring independent films from this year’s Slamdance Film Festival on to the big screen at ArcLight Hollywood.

Latino-Review can initially and exclusively announce that Mattia Colombo’s documentary “Trees That Walk” and horror movie “Ratter” starring Ashley Benson will be in the screening lineup next month. The films will be shown at ArcLight Hollywood on May 17th and May 18th respectively.

Here’s the synopsis and info for each film below:

“Trees That Walk”

Rating: NYR 

59 min 

Genre: Documentary

Director: Mattia Colombo

 A film about the lives of trees, and their deep relationship with the people that work hard every day to give wood a second life. And about what happens in this second life, when it becomes boats for sailing and musical instruments for playing. Trees are the opposite of movement, but a second life starts as soon as the sap stops flowing. Forests became the fleets that explored the world’s geography while writing the story of earth.

Emma, a graduate student living alone in New York City, is being watched by a stalker who has hacked into all of her technology – laptop, cell phone, and other web connected devices – to record her most intimate moments. Eventually the video feeds aren’t enough and the stalker moves from the virtual to the physical – with disturbing consequences.

 The theater chain and film festival started the cinema club program back in March. It had screened “The Resurrection of Jake The Snake” and “Bloodsucking Bastards” last month. This weekend on April 12-13, “Across the Sea” and “Dennis roadman’s Big Bang in Pyongyang” are part of this month’s lineup.
