East Bay’s most audacious musical risk-takers, the Thomas Carnacki ensemble “re-tracks” the sound for fantasy films of the last century; using glass vessels, bicycle rims, and homemade wind instruments, they transport film-historical gems into sublime experiences. Czech master Karel Zeman’s 1961 version (here excerpted by Greg Scharpen) of The Fabulous Baron Munchausen is certainly the most hallucinogenic!
Opening are seven new works by the most exciting women in contemporary American animation: West Coast premieres of Kelly Gallagher’s From Ally to Accomplice (on John Brown!), Martha Colburn’s Sex After Mastectomy, Katherin McInnis’ Hat Trick, and Lauren Cook’s PXXL. In person: Kerry Laitala’s Fairy Feathers, Kathleen Quillian’s Stardust Serenade, and Adrianne Finelli’s Decomposition. Jeremy The Harp Rourke serenades PopTarts in the parklet!
