SAT. 10/15: GERRY FIALKA’S PXL THIS 20 FEST!
Honoring media-theorist Marshall McLuhan as part of a worldwide centenary, we welcome back one of his fiercest and funniest proponents with a program of videos made on audio-cassette! This current iteration of Fialka’s long-running fest embodies McLuhan’s bold ideas about democratic communication tools. Among the movies made with the Fisher-Price PXL 2000 toy camcorder are: Jesse Drew’s Dolby, Mariko Drew’s It’s a Lemonhead, tENTATIVELY a cONVENIENCE’s Philosopher’s Union, and other pieces by Gerry himself, Paolo Davanzo, and a sneak preview of Michael Koshkin’s feature-doc on this cult format. Come early for 2-bit beer, free vinyl records, and David Cox playing the Optigan (another media-archeological oddity) to a McLuhan montage.
