On Saturday, April 28 ATA Gallery's flagship exhibition series OTHER CINEMA concludes its Psychedelia suite when cultural critic Christian Divine returns with another mind-bending slide-show on cult cinema, this time trippin’ on freak-out scenes in feature films. This kaleidoscopic genre, peaking in the ‘60s and ‘70s, opened up an opportunity to directly demonstrate a visionary experience in filmic terms.
Among the sensory overload of B-fare, obscure anomalies, and even an occasional A-movie, we grok the grooviest vignettes from The Trip, Head, Skidoo, The Tingler, Riot on Sunset Strip, Wild in the Streets, Psych-Out, Easy Rider, 200 Motels, The Big Cube, Performance, and myriad more.
Divine has organized his presentation in the shape of an actual trip, with a few longer 16mm interludes (Hallucination Generation and Go Ask Alice).
PLUS a cautionary clip from LSD: Insight or Insanity, free Kool-Aid, and a liquid light show!
Doors open at 8pm; Show at 8:30pm.
