BRUCE MCCLURE: THERE WAS A SWEET HOPEFUL
8PM – Saturday, August 6 & Sunday, August 7, 2016
Mackenzie Hall Ballroom & Common Ground Art Gallery
3277 Sandwich Street
Common Ground Art Gallery, Media City Film Festival and Momentum Film & Video Collective join forces for a two-day projector performance extravaganza with NY-based, paracinema legend, Bruce McClure.
“Bruce McClure’s film projector is a weapon. Its ammunition is raw light. Darkness is both its adversary and its matrix. Radiant blasts inflame the theatre of perception. The void retaliates. This is a cinema of thunder and lightening.” – OtherFilm
