19:00 Film Shorts 

Marju Ago  8:30 am

This video work describes a day of one rushing contemporary human.

The video is recorded with a camera attached to the artists body, so it is,more or less, live action although editing plays an important role. The fact that there is no doer to be seen should emphasize the role of the watcher and simplify the process of his/her self- identification. 3:06 min


Nadine Patterson Lick Film

This film is about my fascination and love of film, its texture, color, and vibrancy.  Dance and images of an editor at work are juxtaposed with a quote spoken in Portuguese, Spanish, English, and French. “If you are not sure which side is the emulsion side you can wet your finger and touch it; or you can put it between your lips and lick it.”


Nadine Patterson Release

19:30 Feature Screening


Miranda July 'Me and You and Everyone We Know' (feature length)

'Me and You and Everyone We Know' is a poetic and penetrating observation of how people struggle to connect with one another in an isolating and contemporary world. Christine Jesperson is a lonely artist and "Eldercab" driver who uses her fantastical artistic visions to draw her aspirations and objects of desire closer to her. Richard Swersey (John Hawkes), a newly single shoe salesman and father of two boys, is prepared for amazing things to happen. But when he meets the captivating Christine, he panics. Life is not so oblique for Richard's six-year-old Robby, who is having a risqué Internet romance with a stranger, and his fourteen-year-old brother Peter who becomes the guinea pig for neighborhood girls -- practicing for their future of romance and marriage.
