When I was a kid, I loved rolling into the drive-in with my siblings, hopping into the hatch back trunk, and having a good time. Watching a movie in the open air is a treat. Rooftop Films is taking it to a new level, literally. This New York based non-profit is dedicated to bringing independent films to light, showing them in parks and on rooftops throughout the city.

For animals lovers, the series is showing Bovines on Thursday, May 31st at The Old American Can Factory.

In the fields, one sees them, wide in grass or grazing peacefully. Large placid animals which one believes to know because they are livestock. Lions, gorillas, bear have all our attention, but did one ever really look at cows?

Tickets are $12. Doors open at 8pm; film begins at 9pm.

Read an interview with Bovines filmmaker Emmanuel Gras.
