According to their Facebook page FILMS for ONE to EIGHT PROJECTORS by Roger Beebe is “an evening of carefully crafted and meticulously timed multi-projector experiments that pull from his practice of appropriating educational, industrial and mass-cultural imagery…with topics ranging from Las Vegas suicides to phone book politics. Made and projected in a variety of formats (Video, 16mm, and super-8mm)…” even with that description I am not quite sure what to expect. Koyaanisqatsi on speed? At least, Koyaanisqatsi and all the other Sqatsis had a wordless narrative. I hoping this will to, that despite the constant bombardment of imagery it will make sense and I will walk away profoundly changed from the experience.
This film event will be hosted by RPL film theatre as a programming partnership between The Saskatchewan Filmpool and the U of R film department as part of a monthly series called Independent Visions. The film-maker will be in attendance. Admission by donation. 7 pm.
