The Walking Picture Palace:
Crooked Fireworks
Tue, Feb 26, 2008 7 PM
"Crooked fireworks though wiped off in an instant
Leave behind a heaven that will never be without scars" —Saito Fumi

McElhatten’s work for venues such as the New York Film Festival’s annual Views from the Avant Garde showcase and the International Film Festival Rotterdam have helped to renew interest in the vital art form of experimental cinema. Tonight he presents “Crooked Fireworks,” a special edition of The Walking Picture Palace, his nomadic ongoing series (see feature), tenderly and cohesively composed of some of the most beautiful and notable short films of recent years.
