Experimental Tuesdays: Jim Trainor’s “The Pink Egg”
October 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Experimental Tuesdays at the Union Cinema presents….
THE PINK EGG
directed by Jim Trainor
Luis Buñuel’s observation – “You can find all of Shakespeare and de Sade in the lives of insects” – was the inspiration for this experimental horror movie, in which human actors wordlessly enact the life-cycles of wasps and bees. Its purpose is to depict with emotion, humor and unnerving specificity an alternative society that really exists and has nothing to do with human beings. A highly stylized depiction of nature in all her deceitful glory. (71 min., 2016, USA)
