Shorts: Strange Planet
Dutmers at the Dennos Museum Thu, Jul 28, 2016 3:00 PM
Making the familiar unfamiliar and the familiar revealed is the common thread in this program of our favorite award-winning avant garde shorts from the past year. In the beginning, with “We Chose the Milky Way,” Eva Marie Rødbro pays an anthropological visit to a mysterious tribe of young girls on a planet called Earth, emerging with a blinged-out, hip hop, social-realist, scifi doc version of “Spring Breakers,” where everything is artificial, except friendships. And at the end, we trace the fascinating material biography of road salt from Chile’s Atacama Desert to the ice-covered streets of America. Along the way, we visit a “Dragstrip;” learn how to make women look dead in “What Happened to Her;” hear statements of universal truth laced with wry humor in “Welcome to David Wojnarowicz Week;” and imagine the 400,000 refugees who flee war, persecution, and poverty each year against a hypnotic factory backdrop. Prepare to be mesmerized.
