BROADWAY METRO Showtimes 4:30 p.m. – Cirque to Cambodia 86 min.  Trailer: Donations accepted to support Phare Social Circus Program at  The film follows the journey of two youths who live out every child’s fantasy – to run away from home and join the circus. But not just any circus – they dream of taking the stage with Cirque du Soleil, the largest theatrical company in the world. Their home, a poor village in the ancient, faraway Kingdom of Cambodia, makes their quest even more extraordinary 7:15 p.m. – Mickey on the Road 96 min.  Trailer: Q&A with the filmmaker following the screening. This feature-length film is the work of Taiwanese filmmaker and director Lu Mian Mian who is currently living in Eugene.  Donations accepted to support Ukraine relief efforts. In Mickey on the Road, best friends Mickey and Gin Gin are young women scraping by in southern Taiwan. A headstrong tomboy, Mickey, looks after her depressed mother and spends her free time at the local temple, trying to join its all-male martial arts troupe. By contrast, sanguine and impulsive Gin Gin makes money dancing in nightclubs. When Gin Gin hatches a plan to rendezvous with her crush, Jay, in the city of Guangzhou, China, Mickey decides to go along, determined to locate the father who abandoned her and her mother years before. Almost immediately the two find themselves in over their heads, immersed in lawlessness and betrayal. Through misadventures–some comic, some brutal–Mickey and Gin Gin strengthen their friendship and transform from rascally naifs into more mature souls with a clearer sense of self.
