Film Arts: Outside the Box

Roxie Theater

Co-presented with Film Arts Festival

Artists utilizing animation and motion techniques think Outside the Box in this spirited group show featuring new works by artists from the Bay Area and beyond. Identity issues, drug wars, future shocks, reckless yuppies, forbidden swimming, transgender experience and life during wartime are on view here alongside Chicago No Wave-Indie-Afro-Funk band Mahjongg and a plethora of memorable characters enacting scenes both sad and satiric. Featured artists include Jed Bell, Louise Bourque, Tyrone Davis, Mahri Holt, Le Sheng Liu, Ken Paul Rosenthal, Michaek Rudnick, James Sansing, Michael Wilson and a bunch of fellow out-of-the-boxers.
