Waxing and Milking by Alee Peoples
(2014, Super 8 with digital sound, 9:00)
This film mimics music video tropes and equates Los Angeles’ favorite food snack, the taco, to a lady’s special parts. A companion piece toBoys of Summer.
Ten Notes on a Summer’s Day by Mike Stoltz
(2012, HD, 04:30)
We could be anywhere but we’re right here, humming along.
With Pluses and Minuses by Mike Stoltz
(2013, 16mm, 5:00)
“This morning the window blew its glass onto my face. Real morning with pluses and minuses (my symbols for truth)” / A ground-less and boundless film in which a wall becomes a window to a swirling landscape.
Them Oracles by Alee Peoples
(2012, 16mm, 7:30)
A skeptic investigation of what an oracle can be and what it would sound like. Human desire and blind faith allow, and maybe even will, these mystic soothsayers to exist.
Boys of Summer by Alee Peoples
(2009, Super 8 to Video, 12:30)
A pop music essay that is both sweet and serious about male stereotypes and juvenile fun. Tongue-in-cheek objectifying is mixed with cryptic symbols of longing and desire.
Under the Atmosphere by Mike Stoltz
(2014, 16mm, 14:30)
Filmed on the Central Florida “Space Coast”, site of NASA’s launch pads. Dormant spacecraft, arcane text, activated landscape, and the surface of the image work towards a future-past shot reverse shot.
Total Runtime (with projection changeover) 60 Minutes
