There will be a Q&A with Crispin Glover following the screening.
Crispin Glover will perform Crispin Hellion Glover's Big Slide Show part 2, a one hour dramatic narration of eight different profusely illustrated books. The images from the books are projected behind Mr. Glover during his performance.
There will then be a screening of It Is Fine! EVERYTHING IS FINE. This film goes into uncharted cinematic territory with screenwriter Steven C. Stewart starring in this semi-autobiographical, psycho-sexual tale about a man with severe cerebral palsy and a fetish for girls with long hair.
Part horror film, part exploitation picture and part documentary of a man who cannot express his sexuality in the way he desires, this fantastical and often humorous tale is told completely from Stewart’s actual point of view – that of someone who has lived for years watching people do things he will never be able to do. Here, Stewart’s character is something of a ladykiller, seducing a troubled, recently divorced mother, her teenage daughter and any number of other women he encounters along the way.
It is fine! EVERYTHING IS FINE, dir. Crispin Glover, USA 2007, 74 mins.
Please note that a three minute short film will be screened before the first main feature every evening. Part of a rotating selection that changes weekly, the films shown are currently on tour to various arts venues across the country as part of Playback
