Shrooms N' Space in 16mm

Series: Astral Projections

Join local film archivists Ioana Cherascu and Garrett Schroeder on a little trip through time! Our understanding of the universe around us is always changing, metamorphosing through various methods of dissemination. To wit, this collection of classic 16mm short films can feel almost alien sometimes, with their formal - yet unassuming - quiet artistry. It's hard to say who the target demographic might be for these films. Perhaps everyone. Perhaps you.

You'll learn about fungi from both a 1930s and 1970s point of view. You'll travel to the outer limits of our understanding of space and witness the special effects that inspired those in 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. You'll experience a Native American myth told with delicate psychedelic animation. Finally, there will be a little surprise guaranteed to make you say, "Who made this? WHY would anyone make this?"
