Sunday, August 25, 6:00 p.m. | A discursive, fluid portrait of a loose community shouldering homelessness, drug addiction, and mental illness, YOU’RE DANCING THIS DANCE ALL WRONG presents an intimate snapshot of life in the fringes of pre-COVID Kansas City, Missouri. Taking a subjective, diaristic approach, filmmaker (and Chicago Film Society staff member) Cameron Worden assembles a rough-edged, formally adventurous nonfiction hangout film out of super 8 film footage captured on the fly (and blown up to 35mm for exhibition) alongside a dense soundtrack built out of hours of field recordings, presenting a series of often darkly humorous conversations touching on employment frustrations, best filmmaking practices, fast food, and the encroaching threat of gentrification. Preceded by LEAVES FOR A REEL (2022, dir. Cameron Worden, 18 min., 35mm)(Chicago Film Society)
