The opening night of Crossroads presents the opportunity for a pair of firsts: the “sneak preview” of Kathryn Golden and Ashley JamesMoments of Illumination, a fascinating documentary about legendary filmmaker Lawrence Jordan. The film is followed by the premiere of Lawrence Jordan’s stunning, just-completed animated film, Cosmic Alchemy!. with a soundtrack by John Davis. All four artists will be in attendance for Q&A.

Crossroads opening night reception will follow at the Victoria with live sonic experiences by sound artist Dale Lloyd.

“…Lloyd is reaching deep into his psyche to offer something not unlike a pearl in his very own shell… more a choreographer of the elements than a straight shot musician…a daydream inducing headtrip…a sensual meditation, cleansing your mind, eradicating the incidental; drenching it, quenching it.” –Igloo
