The Institute of the other side

First show: October 08

Friday, October 4 – Wednesday, October 9
FRIDAY NIGHT Q&As with Octavio Coleman, Esq. and director Spencer McCall! Saturday and Sunday Q&As with director Spencer McCall! Welcome to the Jejune Institute, a mind-bending San Francisco phenomenon where 10,000 people became “inducted” without ever quite realizing what they’d signed up for. Was it a cult? Was it an elaborate game? Told from the participants’ perspectives, this film looks over the precipice at an emergent new art form where real world and fictional narratives collide, creating unforeseen and often unsettling con- sequences. Fusing elements of counter-culture, new religious movements and street art, this film invites viewers into a secret underground world teeming just beneath the surface of everyday life. Dir: Spencer McCall. 2012. Digital. 92 mins.
