On Thursday, March 7 at 8pm, Madsen Minax’s surrealist feature-length film, Kairos Dirt & the Errant Vacuum, 2017, will be screened at Suns Cinema. It is a story of the unlikely interconnection of a disparate group of guides and searchers: an outcast kid, a loving lunch lady, a psychic/phone sex operator and others, as their world intersects with the world of a mystical, genderless being.
