Adapted from the play Blood on the Cat’s Neck by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Phoebe Zeitgeist in the City of the White Wolf follows the comic book character Phoebe Zeitgeist. Sent to the earth from a distant star to write an eyewitness account of human democracy Phoebe Zeitgeist has difficulty, because although she has learned the words she doesn’t understand human language. Ms. Zeitgeist witnesses a series of vignette-like dialogues between various representatives of society- cop, model, lover, soldier – feeding off their all too human words and empty aphorisms and regurgitating them in a comic/tragic/vampiric outburst of interstellar communication breakdown. Phoebe Zeitgeist in the City of the White Wolf. 45mins. 16mm. Adapted and Directed by David Zuckerman.
Drinks and Discussion will follow the film.
*** This film was shot on 16mm over a week this past summer using both exteriors and interiors of 322 Union Ave.
