Eugene, Oregon: electronic elsewhere
9pm, Jawbreaker Gallery, 415 Monroe Street @ 4th

  Of animals and animation the most fascinating remain the obscure and
  unknown. This performance, a match up of the electro-folk sounds of
  Brooklyn's Padna and the videographic collage of Eugene's C.Diehl,
  promises a glimpse into the cryptozoologic and cryptozoetropic!
  Approximating the audio-visual equivalents of sensations surrounding
  close encounters with a U.F.O. or Bigfoot, this vidsonic menagerie lurks
  and lunges in the shadows of 'cinema as usual'. This appropriately
  outdoor cinema event includes additional vidsonic life-forms from Wago
  Kreider, Mack McFarland, Joey Bargsten, and others, plus live music from
  Eugene's Lusty Leaf! Cost: Sliding Scale $2 - 5


Los Angeles, California: Echo Park Film Center
8pm, 1200 N. Alvarado Street (@ Sunset Blvd)

  A rare evening of films by Bay Area legend Robert Nelson. Nelson
  classics such as Oh Dem Watermelons (1965) and Bleu Shut (1970) will be
  screened, along with handful of others, some known, some lesser known,
  all in glorious 16mm. These films are not currently in distribution or
  available on any home video format, so don't miss this rare L.A.
  screening of some of RN's greatest.


Hull: Hull Film
7.30pm, Hull Screen | University of Lincoln George Street Annex | George Street | Hull | HU1 3BW

  A special screening of recent commissions from the animate! project,
  trailblazing fresh narrative and aesthetic possibilities in film, way
  beyond live-action and the frame-by-frame confines of conventional
  animation. animate! has commissioned 84 risk-taking films since 1990,
  refreshing and redefining animation. Here, ten exciting new works take
  startling graphic journeys, reveal unsettling undercurrents and discover
  dazzling digital domains. Visit for more details.
  animate! is produced by Finetake and funded by Arts Council England and
  Channel 4.


New York, New York: Rooftop Films

  Sentenced Home A feature-length documentary by David Grabias Thursday
  August 3, 2006 8:30 - Music 9:00 - Showtime TRT: 1:15:50 On the roof of
  Downtown Communtiy Television (DCTV) | DIRECTIONS 87 Lafayette, 2 blocks
  below Canal btwn Walker & White, Tribeca, Manhattan Sentenced Home Over
  1,400 Cambodian-Americans are currently being forcibly deported back to
  Cambodia. Raised as Americans in America, they are being sent into exile
  to a distant homeland they never really knew—a homeland that starved,
  tortured, and murdered their families. Sentenced Home is their story.
  This feature-length documentary tells the heart-breaking personal sagas
  of the deportees, following several characters? stories full-circle:
  from birth in Cambodia to their unwilling return decades later. B.I.K.E.
  A feature-length documentary by Jacob Septimus & Anthony Howard BUY
  TICKETS Friday August 4, 2006 8:30 - Live Music by Vaz 9:00 - Showtime
  TRT: 1:29:00 The roof of 210 Cook Street, Bushwick, Brooklyn |
  DIRECTIONS B.I.K.E. If you've been to underground noise rock shows,
  dangerous loft parties in derelict areas, or unlawful bicycle events in
  the streets, you might've noticed some of the members of the Black Label
  Bicycle Club. They tend to be tattooed and pierced and wear
  black-painted jeans-jackets. They seem to like to party and fight. And
  they build their own bicycles. Tall-bikes, in particular: frames welded
  on top of other frames so the seat rides six feet off the ground.
  They're easy to spot cruising down a crowded avenue, or jousting under a
  bridge, carrying a long plumbing pipe and trying to knock an opponent to
  the tar. But if you've only ever gawked from afar at these pedal-powered
  Hell's Angels, you don't know the whole story. THE MUSIC: Vaz are dark
  and spooky but still manage to have an outstanding pop element. Visit
  them online or on MySpace, Trapped
  Inside the Machine You canít walk out during the credits if the movie is
