Movies of Chance
In film, as in rock ’n’ roll, the moments of greatest genius are often unscripted and accidental. (Think Jack Nicholson hissing “Heeeere’s Johnny.” Totally unplanned.) Such moments will be given pride of place at the fourth-annual 1:1 Super 8 Cinema Soiree, where local filmmakers will unveil new 8 ml, 210-second, one-take films. These movies will be as new to their creators as they are to the audience, for, having wrapped the shoot, the filmmakers resisted the temptation to view, tinker, or toy with their creations. What they shot is what you’ll see, be it sublime, disastrous, or both. (The films’ audios are recorded separately, if at all — some filmmakers usually opt to make their audio live, in the auditorium.) The soiree goes down at the Bubble (810 NE Fourth Ave., Fort Lauderdale) at 7:30 p.m. Admission costs five bucks. Visit the soiree on Facebook for more info.
Thu., Dec. 1, 7:30 p.m., 2011
