Bill Domonkos Retrospective In Boston

By Mike Everleth ⋅ August 29, 2008

I’m a little extra wonky on dates lately that’s a result of a) being recently unemployed; and b) taking two minor out-of-town trips back to back last week. So, I was hoping to have gotten this up earlier, but I messed up.

However, if you’re in Boston and you’re reading this in time, there’s a special screening tonight (8/29) of the films of goth animator Bill Domonkos at 6:00 p.m. at Space 24, located in the South End at 242 E. Berkeley Street, 2nd floor, between Albany Street and Harrison Avenue. The event is being put on by the fine folks of the Boston Underground Film Festival.

Previously to reading about this event, I was unfamiliar with Domonkos’ work even though he’s a BUFF favorite. Then I went and watched his short film The Fine Art of Poisoning and — wow! That’s it embedded above and it’s a highly creepy and dark piece, but with an edge of whimsy via the soundtrack by Jill Tracy.

I intended to write more about Domonkos, but I need to get this up early. If you want to find out more about him, please visit his official site. And go to the screening if you’re in Boston.
