Wednesday, Feb 13, 2008 8:00 PM EST
The Kitchen, New York, NY
Best known for his darkly humorous, stop-motion, animated films that touch on themes of love, death, salvation, and the underworld, filmmaker Brent Green performs live this evening, narrating a series of new and recent films which will be screened alongside a live musical score performed by three extraordinary musicians: Jim Becker (Califone), Brendan Canty (Fugazi), and Fred Lonberg-Holm (Wilco, Freakwater). A self taught artist from Pennsylvania, Green writes, directs, builds, and narrates his short film animations, combining handcrafted figures with drawings and found props to create haunting, atmospheric backdrops for his alluringly twisted stories. For this evening Brent will premiere several new films and screen related recent works, including Old Country Songs, Louisville/Gravity, Walt Whitman’s Brain, Carlin, and Paulina Hollers.
