Cats Amore, June 14
A state of–the–art selection of contemporary alternative visual culture from the 2004 edition of Utrecht's Impakt Festival, featuring love stories, performance art, DJ Krust, Bill Gates, and the words of Stan Brakhage…for starters.
Martha Colburn in Person. Colburn's "visual spew of punk rock poetry and corrupt collage, rendered in scabrous animation that's a perfect marriage of Monty Python and Hieronymus Bosch, is proof that nobody mixes playfulness and dangerous vision better than a low–tech and virulent underground."-S.F. Bay Guardian
Bill Brown, Thomas Comerford, and Melinda Stone in Person. Three artists hit the road in what they call "a program of films about the space of history and the history of spaces....and how filmmaking itself is memory recovered from landscape's amnesia." Definitely not just another roadside attraction.
Jack Walsh in Person. In his autobiographical essay, local filmmaker Walsh explores being middle–aged and gay with honesty and openness. With short, Robert Todd and Michael Dwyer's Rising Tide, intimate portraits of a watchmaker, a shoe repairman, and an auto mechanic facing the challenges of the new economy.
