Member Spotlight: Jack Challem
Name: Jack Challem
Hometown: Montreal and Chicago, and several other major stops (e.g., Santa Fe and Portland) en route to Tucson!
Loft member since: at least 2006
Livelihood/occupation/background/job: nutrition and health writer
Favorite genre/s: foreign, indie, sci-fi
Favorite actor/s: Julie Delpy, Juliette Binoche, Frances McDormand, and so many little-knowns
Favorite director/s: Sigh, the late Francois Truffaut
A few of my/our favorite films are: I’ve Loved You So Long, Let the Right One in, After Life, Blue, Departures, Shaun of the Dead, Two Days in Paris (with Two Days being the funniest film I think I’ve ever seen)
I fell in love with films: in the late 1960s, at the Aardvark Cinema in Chicago’s Old Town.
My favorite person to see a film with at The Loft: She knows.
My favorite thing about the Loft: That Tucson just wouldn’t be the same without the Loft Cinema, especially foreign and indie, is probably the most creative of all creative media, a humbling statement coming from a writer and fine-art photographer
