Artists’ Television Access celebrates independent and underground film and video with 3 nights of subversive and often surreal beauty, spotlighting the work of many local, national and international underground film and video makers.
On Thursday, October 2, the festival opens with Craig Baldwin’s latest collage-narrative Mock Up On Mu, based on the bizarre story of rocket-scientist Jack Parsons and his tangled involvement with Scientology founder L.Ron Hubbard and bohemian muse Marjorie Cameron. Don’t miss the intro act by Mu-vie star, Stoney Burke as John McTaint (think McCain).
In addition to the screenings, Shalo P.’s troubled video weather patterns and Sam Manera’s ode to high-voltage photography will be displayed as installations throughout the gallery during the festival. Plus, the ATA Window will feature an international selection of experimental film artists during the month of October.
