THE BROTHER SIDE OF THE WAKE
Thursday, August 9 at 8 PM
Doors 7:30 pm; $5 admission.
The Brother Side of the Wake (BroSide) is Gerry Fialka’s experimental documentary with Venice, California, as its main character. A remake of the soon-to-be-released Orson Welles film The Other Side of the Wind, it evokes the rascality of the Our Gang comedies, and it probes the cliché: “Is the journey more important than the destination?”
BroSide wakes up the psychic effects of direct cinema, abstract animation, and films about films. It was shot in various formats including Super 8mm, Pixelvision, digital video, and hand-painted celluloid. Now in its third test screening, BroSide will involve the audience in call-and-responses, much like a community, out-loud reading of James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake. BroSide can empower the audience to go out, have fun, and do their own thing. More info: http://laughtears.com/ broside.html
