My great friends at Antiquated Future are now carrying DVDs of the film, along with a hodgepodge of my other Paul Bunyan creations. For those of you who missed the tour, or the kickstarter, you can still get your mitts on the film!
It's finally up! Please take a look and consider donating.
"In the Shadow of Paul Bunyan is an experimental first person documentary about colonial heritage, mythmaking in northern Minnesota, the US/Dakota war of 1862 and a certain iconic pair of roadside attractions in Bemidji, Minnesota. The film explores the way the Anglo-American caricature of Paul Bunyan overshadows the many complex histories of this state. Using rarely seen archival materials and observational 16mm film, In the Shadow of Paul Bunyan is an expedition into the hidden corners of this land we call Minnesota."
Northern Spark is an annual, dusk until dawn arts festival that lights up Minneapolis on the second Saturday of June each summer. The festival is presented by Northern Lights.mn, a small but mighty Minneapolis-based non-profit arts organization whose mission is to transform our sense of what’s possible in public space. Learn more about why they need your $$$ here.
I'm honored to be included in Northern Spark's 2014 lineup! Northern Spark is a nonprofit all-night arts festival that lights up Minneapolis on June 14. I'll be projecting archival, found and original Paul Bunyan material on the side of the Cowles Center in downtown Minneapolis, directly across the street from the old Lumber Exchange Building.
