Short films by Bill Brown and Dreamwhip reading

With Bill Brown


You can take Bill Brown out of Texas, but you can’t take the Texas out of Bill Brown.

Bill will be with us on Sunday, August 17 at 8pm for a special outdoor screening of some of his short films and a reading from his entrancing ‘zine, Dreamwhip. Come watch the flicker of 16mm on our outdoor screen, enjoy some ice cold drinks, and listen to some tales of travel and intrigue.

His films are vast and expansive and take you on a road trip across the back roads of forgotten places. They blur the difference between documentary and personal filmmaking and create a time-capsule of the subtle changes of the North American landscape. His films have won many awards and screened at nearly every film festival on the planet, he has received both Rockefeller and Creative Capital grants, and in November 2003, the Museum of Modern Art presented a retrospective of his work. His ‘turn-ons’ include blimps, elevated trains, and vegan bratwurst, but the steady tug of time passing and Hummers leave him less excited.
