"Phil Solomon is the Méliès of digital cinema, if not its Cocteau."—Sam Wells

Phil Solomon, who lives in Boulder, Colorado, makes a rare in-person appearance to present the trilogy of his recent Grand Theft Auto digital videos (plus a prologue), including a preview of Still Raining, Still Dreaming (2008), made from the blockbuster hi-def game Grand Theft Auto IV. These works have caused a sensation wherever they’ve screened, so don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity. As an introduction to Solomon’s film work, we’ll also be showing one of his most acclaimed films, Twilight Psalm II: Walking Distance (1999), and the night may have other surprises and glimpses at works-in-progress in store.

Twilight Psalm II: Walking Distance (1999) 23 mins.
