Viaje a la Luna, Argentine film, at Minicine Shreveport alongside Un Chien Andalou on Thurs, September 9, 8 pm

On the eve of the P.A.C.E. 2010 North Louisiana Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (Sept. 10-16), minicine? will explore film shorts from the experimental film underground, says David Nelson, including early works from the time before gay and lesbian subject matter had established itself as a genre in theatrical release cinema.

In honor of the appearance of Director John Waters at the festival, some of these films have been selected for their influence (by his own admission) on his unique film vision.

In a program within a program within a program this will include, Un Chien Andalou (1929) by Salvador Dali and Luis Bunuel, which Waters has acknowledged as an influence, as well as, a soft premier for the recently released, Viaje a la Luna (2009), by Argentine filmmaker Fernando Tobar Castro as inspired by the screenplay of Federico Garcia Lorca (1929). These two films will be of further interest to festival goers planning to see Little Ashes at the Robinson Film Center, Sept. 10 or 12, which explores the tense relationship between the Spanish artist Salvador Dali, poet Federico Garcia Lorca and filmmaker Luis Bunuel.
This event will include a special opening for new artwork by Shreveport artists: Nick Norwood, Andy Randolph, Shannon Palmer, Laurel Shaffer, Jamie Heiges and Ian Quiet.
