Jodie Mack: Let Your Light Shine

This program of five experimental animations brings everyday objects to life—from rippling head-shop tie-dyes to dollar store gift bags—creating a transcendent mixture of high and low culture. Jodie Mack has been one of the most talked about filmmakers in recent years, and as Cinema Scope magazine writes, “with a self-deprecating wit and a charm that is matched only by the keen precision of her art, Mack could be just what the avant-garde needs.” At the center of this program is the 41-minute Dusty Stacks of Mom, a stop-motion animation tribute to the filmmaker’s mother and her defunct poster store. Mack will provide live, karaoke-style singing accompaniment to the film (using a popular classic rock album as a backdrop for her own lyrics), making this an evening not to be missed. (approx. 75 mins., 16mm)
