From the rural town of Preston, Idaho, comes Napoleon Dynamite! With a red ‘fro, his moon boots, and illegal government ninja moves, he is a new kind of hero. His family consists of fragile brother Kip, who’s seeking his soulmate in online chat rooms; Uncle Rico, who is stuck in his “glory” days of high school football; and Grandma, who enjoys going out to the dunes on her quad-runner. Napoleon spends his days drawing magical beasts, working on his computer hacking skills to impress the chicks, and begrudgingly feeding his Grandma’s pet llama. When his friend Pedro decides to run for class president, it is Napoleon to the rescue to help him triumph over adversity.
Celebrating a decade of ligers and sweet dance moves, SF Sketchfest is thrilled to welcome star Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) and moderator Starlee Kine (“This American Life”) for a screening and conversation/Q&A.
