The Ekphrasis coterie invites you to our Film Fest. Please join us as we take a look back on the short films we made in 2016, including from the Tranquility Series: “Zeno Effect”, “S P R I N G”, “discovery”, “The Beast” and “Moondog”. We will also screen “Homage à un Rêve”, our tribute to Surrealism. The coterie wishes to thank our collaborators of whom we begged, borrowed and asked permission of after the fact, especially Dewa Ketut Alit Adnyana, Matt Turner, Elyse-Krista Mische, Loren Dempster, John Fleckner, Therese Joanis, Luke Jacobs, Andrew Dane, Dane Richeson and Rory Olson.
Note: Total running time of the Film Fest will be approximately 30 minutes. Movies will be screened on the big screen at The 602 Club on December 30th, 2016 at 7:00 pm.
I feel the
pull, the draw of the spectacle, the energy of a movement, the making of an
important moment in history, the power in the rising of wronged people, happening right now while I sit here in a warm
house, the sun setting on a holiday where we flew and drove and gorged
ourselves, we, the “consumers” as we are now known, buying more than our fair
share, driving the wheels which churn the oil.
Still, we want to help.We want justice.We want to be absolved of the crimes of our ancestors and our politicians.
