***About the film***
Based on Franz Kafka's Description of a Struggle, the film is divided into three chapters. The first chapter follows Fran, a bored twenty-something, and George, a starry-eyed lover, on a drunken search for a girl after a New Years Eve party. In the second chapter, Fran meets a hopeful drifter, Rio, who tells her the story of The Supplicant and how he inspired Rio to migrate. The third chapter returns to Fran and George's drunken quest. Shot on location in Cheyenne, WY, Laramie, WY, and San Francisco, CA, The Advice of Strangers is a biting and ethereal look at hope, frustration, wanderlust, assumptions, and love.
Built in 1908 as a vaudeville house, the Mission District's Victoria Theatre is the oldest operating theatre in San Francisco. Originally called Brown's Opera House, the theatre showcased grand performances by international stars who came to San Francisco.
In the 1930s, as cinema began to overtake live theatre, Brown's became a motion picture house, and in the 1950s, changed it's name to El Teatro Victoria and began playing only Spanish-language films.
In the 1960s, however, the theatre became a burlesque house and changed it's name, once again, to New Follies. The theatre subsequently closed in 1976. Three years later, the theatre reopened, restored to it's original grandeur and eager to show only the greatest of films inside its stately red exterior.
