(filmmakers in person)

Kate McCabe will be showcasing a decade’s worth of her moving image work combining humor in experimental film and premiering her latest 16mm work, You and I Remain. A film inspired by the Anthropocene, You and I Remain is an apocalyptic lullaby, a landscape film mediating on the end of the world. Shot in Big Sur, the Salton Sea and in McCabe’s own neighborhood of Joshua Tree, the film shows us a portrait of the world askew with subtle and moving sound design by Jason Payne of Nitzer Ebb. Local fave, Gabriela Molina begins the evening with a selection of her recent fantastical cut-out animations and light experiments!

Probing into the deep psyche of music, fame and film this evening poses two exceptional in-person artist’s forays and genius spins on the infinite iterations of Rock & Roll.

These and more of Holzworth’s videos will be screened tonight. Second half of the show features meticulous historian Clif Taylor/Chick Cashman, dragged through the ashes of glam hell, in live discussion on the essence of rock and roll presenting a cosmological montage and performance manifesto, preaching + playing cosmic cowboy bullshit all while weaving a web between Cassavetes’ Killing of a Chinese Bookie, Bewitched and high heels ad infinitum!
