Kicking a cliche

The story of the maniac genius rock-star isn't a new one — in real life or fiction. But the Sundance Selection I Am Not a Hipster — which screens at the Michigan Theater on June 2 as part of Cinetopia, a four day, first-time festival screening more than 30 films from May 31 – June 3 — breaks down some barriers. Rather than completely revolving around the music, the film focuses on the hardships (including the death of his mother) and  the healing a young, tortured artist, Brook, goes through in his personal life.

$15. 9:30pm. Michigan Theater, 603 E. Liberty St. 734-668-8463. www.michtheater.org
