The film I made with Catherine Falkner during a residency at Black Bag Media Collective in St John’s, Newfoundland is now in distribution with VIVO media arts, and the first screening from this relationship is happening at CineEco environmental film festival in Portugal in October (or as they say in Portugal, “outubro”!
The film, a surrealist propaganda movie against the spraying of Tordon 101 on Newfoundland’s highways, will show this week in Seia, Portugal in competition with other shorts.
Thanks to Liz Solo for making that residency happen…
I’ll be playing with video from Ukraine, with live animation, and VJ-type live cams. I feel like someone has taken a DJ and said “here’s a guitar!” which is pretty fun but also terrifying. Come see me triumph or crash! It will be a great event!
One of my missions in St John’s was to record as much live music as possible, for sharing with my friends and colleagues and for possible use in a future video installation / exhibition. After two visits to Newfoundland over the decades, the amount of live music was what stuck with me the most. Like, without leaving downtown, I shot 9 bands in a week and a half.
There’s something for everyone so by all means, skip through if something’s not to your taste…
