Blood Of The Earthworm
Wednesday, June 6
An anti-climactic barrage of original footage and
unoriginal extractions from horror, science fiction,
and educational films, all of which feature
contemporary maladies of civilization, such as
ecological devastation, bio-terrorism, consumerism,
and government conspiracy, in their story or subtext.
Directed by Brittany Gravely
US 2006, 16mm, color, 32 min.
June 13: Punk Can Take It
Directed by Julien Temple (ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS, EARTH
GIRLS ARE EASY), this punk rock documentary from 1979
is shot as a parody of wartime documentary films.
Immortalizing the punk rock spirit on celluloid,
Temple infuses his film with a genuine sense of anger
prevalent in the U.K. at the time. Centering the film
around the experiences of the U.K. Subs proves to be a
masterstroke, offering all the gritty realism of life
in Britain at the tail end of the 70s.
