OPENING, a 16mm film with live music, will screen at the 20th Onion City Experimental Film and Video Festival.
OPENING uses imagery from overlooked spaces, like off-ramps, alleys and overpasses, to reflect upon the shadow cast by the city.
3 Chicago-area musicians, Lee Weisert, Katie Weigman and Caroline Davis, will accompany OPENING.
Sunday, June 22, 3:30pm at Chicago Filmmakers (5243 N. Clark St.)
