films by Ben Russell at
NEW NOTHING CINEMA
Blasting out of Chicago, experimental filmmaker Ben Russell makes
vibrant, 'tryppy' films as emotional as they are beautiful to sink
tour eyes into. His BLACK AND WHITE TRYPPS subjects range from
elliptical trees in high contrast to a crowd at a Lightning Bolt show
to a Richard Pryor performance blown out visually. Russell will also
perform THE BLACK AND THE WHITE GODS, a 16mm double-projection live
performance involving film loops, mixer feedback, a delay pedal, and a
homemade light-sensitive synthesizer.
