Brent Green in person!
- GRAVITY WAS EVERYWHERE BACK THEN
- 2010, Brent Green, USA, 75 min.
Brent Green’s folk-punk films interweave drawing, puppets, hand-built sets, and stop-motion animation to spin tales of transformation and loss. This evening Green presents his acclaimed animated feature GRAVITY WAS EVERYWHERE BACK THEN (2010), based on the true story of a Kentucky hardware clerk who tried to save his dying wife from cancer by turning his house into an eccentric healing machine. Shot on a full-scale model of the house Green built in his rural outdoor studio in Pennsylvania, GRAVITY is a crazy-quilt of fantastic imagery, fabulist narration, and themes of love, obsession, and spirituality. Presented in collaboration with SAIC’s Visiting Artists Program, which features a lecture with live musical accompaniment by Brent Green on March 28. Visit www.saic.edu/art_design/vap for more info.
