LA UNDERGROUND #2- BURNING BUNGALOWS: Experimental Film & Animation on the Road From LA

Filmmakers in person!

The second part of our series investigating new work from regional hotbeds of experimental media. The artists write, “With a handmade mix of animation and live action on video, super 8, 16mm and 35mm slides we’re covering all the bases for an eclectic hour and 20 minutes.  The films tend toward an ethereal conjuring of spirits with a dystopian punk attitude.” Filmmakers Alee Peoples, Cosmo Serguson & Abby Banks will be here in person to present this unusual assortment of new work!
