With a nod to John Belushi's “Bluto” Blutarsky character in the 1978 comedy Animal House, filmmaker Bill Cox offers his own take on the smoker-dude-in-college experience in his new film Beer and Seed. It follows an older, though definitely not wiser, college student, Bill Cook (played by Cox), as he navigates classes, co-eds and stupor--inducing binges. Filming took place on Rice University's campus and other Houston locations. After the screening, mingle with the cast, crew and other film industry types while Joliet Jake and Elwood Blues, a Blues Brothers Tribute band, perform live today at 7 p.m. Warehouse Live, 813 St. Emanuel.
