Other Cinema is thrilled to host an old friend whose creativity and strength of vision have propelled him to the launch of his first international 35 mm release, Sleep Dealer. Since we don’t have 35mm facilities, we’ll instead be showing substantial clips on digital video, as Alex guides us through his process on this provocative political allegory. It’s a fable for this globalized age, a moral tale focusing on the all-too-true phenomenon of virtual workforces delivering their alienated labor from across the border. Featuring eye-popping 3-D animation, Alex’s highly imaginative magical-realist masterpiece elaborates on the themes of Latin-American relations, immigration, and digital culture that also drive his earlier work. So to open the show, we’ll screen his shorts Why Cybraceros?, Dia de la Independencia, and maybe even PapaPapa in their entirety, properly situating Señor Rivera in his meteoric artistic arc. Come early for reception, cerveza, and yes, another of our (in)famous piñatas. *$7.
