I MEAN, LITERALLY!  An Evening of Men’s Shorts

Get your TICKETS here!

The annual slip-and-slide party of narrative and formal film play that careens across an evening of short works —  silly, reflective, touching, and outrageous. A carnival of serious fun.

 

To screen:

SUMMER 1975
(Wrik Mead, Canada, 10min., 2014
Hand-drawn rotoscoped figures are laterd with stills and live footage to create an open narrative based on events in the artist’s life. In the summer of 1975 he was thirteen, a pivotal year. He discovered the magic of animation and made his first animated film. Together with his best friend, they locked themselves away for the whole summer to complete the film, and had their first sexual experience with each other. It was a time of great excitement, confusion, fear and withdrawal.” (Ann Arbor Film Festival)

(Adriano Valenti, Canada/US, 5min., 38 seconds, 2014)

KING JAMES VERSION GENESIS CHAPTER NINETEEN
(Martin Sulzer, Germany, 8min., 2015)
Utlizing motion capture and live performers, the 3D video attempts a literal re-enactment of the biblical passage of Genesis 19. “The mere reading of rather short biblical texts produces mental images that pose contradictions and problematise the purity of meaning. An unaltered copy only exists in the digital. KING JAMES VERSION GENESIS CHAPTER NINETEEN marks the artist’s and performers’ attempt at retelling and translating such a text into moving image with utmost neutrality.” (MS)

+

LOADS
(Curt McDowell, 16mm, B&W/sound, 20min., 1980)
An intensely personal, autobiographival, and at times humorous filmic account of McDowell’s “adventures with straight boys and the hospitality he extends to them.” Print courtesy of Academy Film Archive and Canyon Cinema
