Basement Films: Heap Us ‘Round Our Ruins

By Mike Everleth ⋅ October 22, 2009

Oct. 24
1:30 p.m.
Guild Cinema
405 Central Avenue NE
Albuquerque, NM

Hosted by: Basement Films

Heap Us ‘Round Our Ruins” is a touring program of the films by Josh Weissbach and Ben Balcom, who will be in attendance at this screening. According to the filmmakers:

Josh’s work tends towards spatial relations in humans & its mutual cause and effect on us while Ben’s work focuses on artificial mediums of representation that try to frame human nature – but they are unified by an interest in the vitality of the moving image as an experience of communication.

This 90-minute program will be unique to each location the pair screens at. If you want to check out a sampling of the pair’s work, please visit their Vimeo video page.
