Enjoy pranks, hoaxes, forgeries, guerrilla theater, and social sculpture in an empowering tapestry of transfiguring reality! Filmmaker/archivist Ross Lipman and the Billboard Liberation Front's Jack Napier present an evening of secular magic; the alchemical act of transmuting everyday life into fiction--and vice versa. Their Inquiry examines actions, including films, performances, essays, and rare archival documents, that turn reality inside out. The line-up includes: a PowerPoint performance on the birth of the TV Spectacle, Ferdinand Marcos hustling a tribe of "cave people" to feed his wife's shoe habit, an enigmatic Butoh performance in the streets of Brooklyn (by SF expat artist Leigh Evans), and the latest breathtaking hijinks of the heroic Billboard Liberation Front. Through a collaboration with the Pacific Film Archive, we've been able to arrange this extraordinary return of Mr. Lipman, internationally renown for his preservation projects at UCLA.
