SUNDAY SPECIAL! After 5 years, OC welcomes back David Sherman, a veteran experimentalist and former curator of Total Mobile Home Microcinema, in collaboration with partner Rebecca Barten. He returns with a grand project indeed: Wasteland Utopias deals with the social and environmental consequences of the urbanization of Arizona’s Sonora Desert. His double-projection piece, built from doc interviews, found footage, and narrative tableaux, explores the magic-conceptualist intersection of two radically different utopian thinkers: mega-developer Del Webb and outsider psychiatrist/scientist Wilhelm Reich. Both operated in Southern Arizona in the late ‘50s—Webb building Sun City, his colossal panoptic planned-retirement community, while Reich conducted weather-modification experiments with Orgone Energy. ALSO: Dr. Eva Reich on her father’s UFO obsession, plus vintage Sun City propaganda!
