INDUSTRIALS AMOK! BALDWIN’S ARCHIVAL ANOMALIES
April 20 only
Coming out of last summer’s sold-out Incredibly Strange Music, Craig Baldwin returns with another jaw-dropping program of 16mm media-archaeological curiosities! This utterly absurd compilation of 30+ uncanny clips–each briefly introduced–promises an hilarious encounter with the fringe genres of 20C film culture, sublimely ridiculous celluloid artifacts that not only amuse, but defy belief: Little Oscar Mayer, Emperor Norton, John Birch, bed-wetting, noise-torture, cults, car commercials, IBM mainframes, religious ecstasies, sex-ed, subliminals, and dozens more brain-melting excerpts from Cinema’s underside.
99 minutes, 16mm.
