An evening of film and performance confronting the exotic Other through invented landscapes. Leslie Thornton’s Adynata (16mm film, 1983) presents an impossible “Orient,” noticeably constructed in a play of seductive surfaces. In Ellen Zweig’s performance Running Errands In Africa, a spy discovers a conspiracy which reveals an imaginary Africa of shadowy conjecture and deception (with super-8 film by Rob Stephenson). Thornton and Zweig are currently collaborating on Ex(centric) Lady Travellers. Also: Chapters from the 1935 jungle serial The Lost City starring William Boyd.

Special price: $5.00 general and $3.00 students and seniors (with I.D. only).
