    Since the dawn of time, from the age of the cavemen, mankind has been obsessed with random bits of facts and knowledge. Maybe not that far back – but the world of trivia is something that has some sort of universal appeal, and it's curious to think about why. Game shows, board games, pub trivia nights – all sorts of traditions have sprung up to give people a chance to prove they know more about random and generally pointless facts than anybody else. And it's a hell of a lot of fun! Perhaps we like to think that if we have a wide spread of superficial knowledge, it translates to Ultra-Smarts – when, of course, it's really depth of knowledge that matters. But who cares – when you're at a bar with your friends and pounding beers and getting all the answers right first, it's a rush, man! And that's what trivia is all about!

    Tonight, the Louisville Film Society presents a story about the high stakes of a trivial

    game (see what I did there?) with a special screening of

    Answer This

    , written and directed by Funny Or Die contributor Christopher Farah. Christopher Gorham stars as Paul Tarson, a man in grad school with no idea what he's going to do when he gets out. The answer? Assemble a team and delve deep into the world of pub trivia. Along the way, he maybe learns a little bit about life, love, and friendship.

    As an added bonus, Christopher Farah himself will be attending the screening for a Q&A following the film.

    Answer This

    will be shown at 7:00 tonight, Tuesday, at the Dreamland Film Center, located at 810 E. Market Street. Admission is $15. Complete information about the event can be found at the Louisville Film Society website.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
