“WE SHOULD MAKE A MOVIE?”: VIDEOS BY REID URBAN
Wednesday, February 19 at 8 PM
Doors 7:30 pm; $5 admission.
Reid Urban has made hundreds of movies attempting to explore the many different forms that video can exist in. Though often absurd and humorous, Urban’s stories present characters exploring simple but vast concepts like love, happiness, life, friendship, being and death. The characters are sensitized to their Earthly predicament yet sustain an earnest attitude to their language – believing it will help them come closer to true self-understanding.
Urban uses humor, dadaism, boredom, and absurdism.The work is reflective of how we use digital media and what it means for us as a society.
Reid will be showing a very short clip of every video he has ever made accompanied by live narration, examining how his videos have grown as he has grown as a person.
The compilation performance will be followed by a screening of his short film Good Times.
