The Cane Fire Film Series screens "Filth," starring James McAvoy, tonight at the AcA.

For July, the Cane Fire Film Series is screening Filth, whichis directed by Jon S. Baird and stars James McAvoy and is based on the novel by Irvine Welsh who authored the cult favorite Trainspotting.

Filth chronicles scheming Bruce Robertson, a bigoted and corrupt policeman, who is in line for a promotion and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Charged with solving a brutal murder and threatened by the aspirations of his colleagues, Bruce sets about ensuring their downfall, right under the nose of oblivious Chief Inspector Toal.


As he turns his colleagues against one another by stealing their wives and exposing their secrets, Bruce starts to lose himself in a web of deceit that he can no longer control. As his past slowly catches up with him, a missing wife, a crippling drug habit and suspicious colleagues start to take their toll on his sanity. The question is: can he keep his grip on reality long enough to disentangle himself from the filth?

The Cane Fire Film Series presents Filth on Monday, July 14, at 7:30 p.m., at the Acadiana Center for the Arts, located at 101 W. Vermilion St. in Downtown Lafayette. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased either at the door or online at www.AcadianaCenterfortheArts.org.
