Common Ground Art Gallery and Media City Film Festival join forces for a two-day projector performance extravaganza with NY-based, paracinema legend, Bruce McClure. This event is also co-presented with Momentum Film & Video Collctive and celebrates Common Ground Art Gallery's 30th anniversary.

"Bruce McClure’s film projector is a weapon. Its ammunition is raw light. Darkness is both its adversary and its matrix. Radiant blasts inflame the theatre of perception. The void retaliates. This is a cinema of thunder and lightening." – OtherFilm
