Lights! Cameron! Jackson! (Premiere) by Dave King and Noah Hutton
Friday, September 14th
6:30pm Doors || 7:30pm Screening
Lights! Cameron! Jackson! is a new episodic series from Dave King, acclaimed drummer/composer for groups such as The Bad Plus and creator of the cult-favorite YouTube project, Rational Funk.
Directed by Noah Hutton (Deep Time), Lights! Cameron! Jackson! stars King as a wandering post-idealist with an ambitious vision for how to improve the world, or at least his own prospects in it. Improvised scenes and conversations are woven together into an existential mystery that's both funny and foreboding.
Screening followed by a conversation with Dave King and James Diers.
