Although his new film Lucy and Jake is about sex in the art scene, director and producer Michael Berrier says that’s really just “a backdrop for simply covering the art scene, and more importantly setting up the story.” Similar to Berrier’s previous film SA Nude, about a photographer who falls unexpectedly in love while shooting for an exhibition, Lucy and Jake explores the concept of art imitating life. Starring hairstylist Melody Cuellar as Lucy (a reporter for the weekly magazine SA ReMix) and recent college grad Chris Collins as Jake (Lucy’s co-worker and live-in boyfriend), the 80-minute feature employs familiar faces (including Mike Casey, Bill FitzGibbons, Andy Benavidez, James Lifschutz, and Jo Sawalha) and places (Blue Star Contemporary Art Center, San Pedro Park, La Tuna, the River Walk) to tell a tale of love and betrayal in Southtown. $5-$10; cocktails at 6:30pm, film at 7pm Thu, Jul 19; Blue Star Contemporary Art Center, 116 Blue Star, (210) 227-6960, bluestarart.org.
