Lost Film Fest coming to Little Theatre
Feb. 18, 2008
KALAMAZOO--Pie fights with police officers, riot footage and so-called "culture jamming" are highlights of the Lost Film Fest being shown at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 25, at Western Michigan University. The free event, sponsored by WMU student organization Kalamazoo Collective Housing, will be at the WMU Little Theatre.
The Lost Film Fest focuses on pranks against corporations and government institutions, including short selections ranging from engaging documentaries to powerful narratives and absurd comedies. Many of the pieces deal with issues such as media ownership, voting reform, globalization, U.S. foreign policy and militarism, censorship, racism, sexism, environmental issues, vegan diet and homophobia.
A unique touring multimedia performance, it incorporates cutting edge digital filmmaking and humorous social commentary. Each performance is designed to evoke discussion on timely and challenging issues. The set-up for the performance includes a video projector at the center of the room, accompanied by festival director Scott Beibin telling stories and histories between the films.
