i feel super lucky to be a part of bringing the film torrey pines to maine for one night only - this Sunday Nov 6. it doesn't get much more intimate than touring your own hand-animated, self scored true story around the country in about 45 cities over three months- which is exactly what queer filmmaker/ musician clyde peterson is in the middle of doing. peterson and his crew are providing the live music score to their work, and maine is lucky to be reaping the benefits of catching the tour at right about its midpoint. we were initially going to be hosting the film at apohadion theatre but we're still a little ways from opening, so the good people at overlook (a 30 seat microcinema on the second floor of the fresh approach building on bracket) have been kind enough to take it on. im going to play a short solo set before the movie right around 7:45 so if you wanted to see that too, then come early. check out the trailer to torrey pines below:
torrey pines screens 8pm at overlook (155 bracket st. second floor) $5-$10 sliding scale for this super special one night only treat.
while on the live-score tip, mayo st. arts is hosting Les Sorciers Perdus- a mark tipton helmed live score to fritz lang's silent 1927 sci-fi classic Metropolis. lang's vision of a dark weird future of greed, technology, and societal degradation is as potent and timely as ever. the five piece band are said to blend jazz, avant garde, rock and classical. sure to be a moving night, and a perfect setting at mayo st. arts' converted church at 10 Mayo St. The show is Nov 4th at 7:30pm and tickets are $10
and finally if you haven't gotten to see the annual omnibus local horror film series damnationland, you have one more chance! now 7 years in, damnationland contains six new shorts of the horror genre. its just $6. here's a trailer, and hey i have a song in the beginning of it!
an awesome chance to catch up on the always evolving local horror scene.
that about does it for this weeks film post. thanks for reading. i feel a little guilty for not letting you know about one of my favorite movies of the year, american honey, which has already come and gone from the nick in a pretty short amount of time. id tell you about it, but its gone.
