The Sun Palace movie will have its world premiere screening at the Anthology Film Archives in New York, April 23 as part of NewFilmMakers. Please, please come. It will double as a CD pre-release event for Music of Shadows, my upcoming CD on the innova label that features "The Long Days Closes" (also the soundtrack to the Germ Requiem section of the movie) as well as some music originally intended for playback in the St. Paul sewer system. Be assured, nobody will leave empty handed or with a dry eye.
WHAT: Philip Blackburn's one-hour film, The Sun Palace; an experimental, intense, sensuous, musico-medical vintage mashup extravanganza with something to do with tuberculosis, Colorado, rich people, stigma, artistic talent, and public health crises (not unlike the more recent HIV one). Another time, another plague...
WHERE: Anthology Film Archives, 32 2nd Ave (at 2nd St), New York, 10003.
F train to 2nd Avenue, walk two blocks north on 2nd Avenue to 2nd Street;
#6 to Bleecker St., walk one block north on Lafayette, then two blocks east on Bond St. (turns into 2nd St.) to 2nd Avenue.
WHEN; Wednesday, April 23, 2014, at 6pm. Stay around and chat with Philip and other family, innova friends, and random strangers.
