³Psychoactive Cinema²
at Chicago Filmmakers, Saturday, May 20th

"Psychoactive Cinema: Psychoactive"
at Chicago Filmmakers, Saturday, May 20th
Event: Tonight's show,³Psychoactive,² is a brand-new program curated
especially for Chicago Filmmakers by Stephen Parr. "Psychoactive" is a sort
of Frankenstein cinema monster, made to function through the use of clever
bits of camp, cultural kitsch, musical mayhem, severed film frames and
narrative and non-narrative techniques. It is also an experiment in
purpose, perception and patience giving new meaning to the phrase ³What the
f**k is that?² ³Psychoactive² is Parr¹s in-progress exploration into the
cinematic stimuli of moving images. It destabilizes and reconfigures
concepts of moving image programs by recontextualizing discordant film
footage cast offs into a cohesive, ³entertaining,² yet disturbing mutation.
Parr¹s previous programs have explored the erotic underbelly of
sex-in-cinema (The Subject is Sex), the offbeat and bizarre (Oddities Beyond
Belief), the pervasive effects of propaganda (Historical Hysterical), and
more. He is the director of Oddball Film+Video, a San Francisco based stock
footage company and director of the San Francisco Media Archive, a non
profit archive. He is also a co-founder of Other Cinema DVD, a dvd label.

Date: Saturday, May 20th at 8:00PM.
Venue: Chicago Filmmakers, 5243 N. Clark St., 2nd Floor
Admission: $7.00
