SAT. 3/17: MELINDA STONE PRESENTS BILL BROWN
Following our strand of topographic work, in fact here’s the crown prince of the critical travelogue, Bill Brown, who’s in town for a teaching turn at USF. This review of three of his 16mm pieces will serve as an entrée to his signature style. Mountain State, an oblique history of West Virginia, uses historical markers as portals to the ghost stories of the Appalachian past. Hub City, an examination of both the real and the imagined Lubbock, Texas (Bill’s hometown), meanders between Buddy Holly, windswept prairies, and truck-stop diners. The Other Side details the filmmaker’s journey through the Southwest, navigating along the tangled web of social forces and geographic features bound up in immigration and national-identity issues. The entire evening is introduced by our darling Dr. Melinda Stone, a fellow psycho-geographer and an irrepressible game-show hostess, laden with door prizes, perforated pastries, and concertina sing-alongs! $7.
