HORRORISM FOR BEGINNERS, BEGINNERS FOR HORRORISM
Saturday, April 4 at 8 PM
On this occasion OJOBOCA offers its introductory film massage. With our purpose-made device our trained film masseuses will help you release your other self. Working directly on the invisible flesh, in four distinct movements, the sickness of light will be revealed. A word of caution: This is a device that does not release pressure. This is a device that does not sooth, that does not relieve pain. This is a device that does not apply gentle massage. This is a device that does not ameliorate noise. This is a device that does not remember. This is a device that does not learn. This is a device that is always beginning, that does not know how to end. This device is like a sentient ocean whose behavior is beyond understanding.
Tonight’s program includes: GENTE PERRA [2014, 16mm, 25 min, color/black & white, sound], WOLKENSCHATTEN [2014, 16mm, 17 min, color, sound], NOW I WANT TO LAUGH [2014, 16mm, 15 min, color, sound] and APOCALYPSE FOR YOU [2014, 16mm, 20 min, color, sound]
