The Nightingale Presents:
OUT OF THE SHADOWS; Or, the Light is Just Around the Corner
Nightingale First Anniversary Show and Party & Rent-Screening for PF
Saturday, April 4, 2009 Doors at 7:00pm / Screening at 8:00pm
At The Nightingale (1084 N. Milwaukee Ave.)
Plus premiere of the new Nightingale trailer!
A special double-duty program: celebrating the first anniversary of The
Nightingale and a rent-screening for me (okay, we know itıs lame, but jobs
are few and money is tight). This show features several personal favorites
from the many hundreds (thousands?) of works Iıve been able to share with
Chicago audiences over the past thirteen years. Most of these have only
shown once in town, so here is a rare opportunity to catch up with or re-see
an eclectic selection of some strange and wonderful films and videos made
over the last twenty years or so. There may even be a few surprise bonus
works! - Patrick Friel
