Balagan presents... DIY Dystopia Thursday March 14, 2013 19:30h Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle Street in Cambridge, MA USA
With the natural world teetering on the brink of multilateral catastrophe, a group of analog filmmakers have taken matters into their own hands. Through direct contact with the medium – lifting and reassembling images on the film strip – adhering waste matter to celluloid – leaving emulsion to languish in the landfill – the artists interpret physical processes that ravage our land. Their grave methods yield results of unexpected poetry, vibrancy and beauty.
Attendees of this show will also receive a special, locally-produced, collaborative zine, made available through the Papercut Zine Library!
