I've been very slow about promoting this great show I've got coming up, but better late than never! I'm screening some films in San Francisco on Saturday, 4/30. Please come! I'll be there and I'd love to see some familiar faces. Craig Baldwin, the mind behind the legendary screening series Other Cinema, which has defined the microcinema scene for over two decades, wrote this great description of the show. I'm honored to have my work held up so!
"Erstwhile OC miracle-worker, the now at-large Mr. Nerburn bounces back into our Mission District safe-house for a feature-length review of his "punk-documentarian" practice. "In the Shadow of Paul Bunyan" criss-crosses the outsized myth of the jolly logger with the hidden history of the US-Dakota Indian War, told from the perspective of a native Minnesotan. "Today I Am Going to Kill Myself but First I Am Going to Dance" is Nik's other Midwestern historiography, in this case about an immense insane asylum in Fergus Falls, where he excavated the ghosts in the graveyard and the local community that keeps their memory alive. "MANIUM" is an abstract exploration of the folk knowledge surrounding the black houses of Olympia, Washington, while "Officer-Involved Shooting" surveys the landscapes where Trayvon Martin, Walter Scott, and Jordan Davis died at the hands of white policemen."
Take a look at the show, which is the fourth in Craig's psychogeography lineup, here.
