posted by evonne |
The Milky Way presents the next installment of its monthly indie film/video series featuring Boston's own underground film revolution (UFR) on February 3rd. Screenings are scheduled on the FIRST MONDAY OF EVERY MONTH. Don't miss the opportunity to experience true underground filmmaking in Boston!
On Monday night, February 3rd, UFR is proud to bring MICROCINEMA.COM's travelling film program INDEPENDENT EXPOSURE back to Boston audiences.
INDEPENDENT EXPOSURE'S "SELECT FAVORITES" program features 16 film and video mixed-media shorts made by filmmakers around the world! Now based in San Francisco, INDEPENDENT EXPOSURE has been running worldwide indie film screenings for the last seven years, and has featured over 700 works by international independent video, film, and digital artists, presented hundreds of times in 32 countries and Antarctica.

The SELECT FAVORITES program includes the dark comedy Timmy's Wish, directed by Patrick Cannon (CA), which has played at several national film fests; the 16mm short film tells the story of a little boy who gets more than he bargains for from Santa...
Other shorts include Icarus of Pittsburgh, directed by Kirk Hostetter and Evan Mather (WA/CA) in which a Pittsburgh Steelers fan attempts to fly to heaven to visit his dead father during the 1979 AFC Champinship game and Wes Kim's (WA) Profiles in Science--a super-8 animation that satirically examines the work of Dr. Albert Chung, an unsung pioneer in time-lapse photography.
