The biennial event plays out like this: the Festivals organizers travel around with eight Super-Eight cameras, as they encounter strangers who might make nice candidates, they give them each a camera and invite them to make a short home movie. The eight strangers who accept do just that, capturing their unique lives and experiences onto a delightfully gritty reel of film. The only editing is done by Miamis own Clifton Childree who prepares opening and closing credits for each of the works; nobody else is allowed to view them until the screening begins at 8 p.m. Celebrate the magic that transpires when strangers merge this evening I mean, if a dog can do it, why cant you? The festival is free but make a donation, it will go Faktura Pet Project an organization that helps other lost pups find homes. Visit www.dorschgallery.com, or call 305-576-1278.
