DESCRIPTION

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.)
