“All the films we’re going to play have radical examples of film-form and narrative. We chose them due to their obscurity, dynamism, humor, and revolutionary qualities. We will do Shooting Wall member short films before each screening. Screenings will be projected with a high definition digital projector and will have a decent sound set up. Food will be provided for free or at low cost at each screening.”
