The Nightingale

Chicago, IL 60642

Hosted by: White Light Cinema

Underground filmmaker Luther Price will be in attendance at this special retrospective of his work. The lineup of films that will be screened has not been finalized yet, but it will include both Chicago and World Premieres, as well as some rarely screened classics.

Price originally exclusively worked in the Super 8 format, but has since moved on to 16mm. His films are comprised mostly of found footage that is spliced together in rapid fire fashion. Price also works directly with the celluloid, such as distressing it by burying it in the ground or by hand-painting frames.

Please check the White Light Cinema website closer to the screening date for a finalized list of films. If possible, we’ll also try to post the actual lineup here on the Underground Film Journal.

Below is some bootleg footage from Price’s film Meat that was captured at a screening last year in Brooklyn, NY. In this brief clip, one can still get a sense of the insane amount of edits one of Price’s found footage films includes:
