Northern Flickers invite you to come see:

LocaLoops & Persian Pickles

A night of experimental animation in glorious 16mm film from near and far Thursday, October 18 at 7pm, at Northern, Downtown Olympia

Free for all, and donations welcomed too.

Featuring a live five-projector performance of new handmade sixteen-millimeter loops by local Oly luminaries Linda Busta, Devon Damonte, Jason Gutz, Ruth Hayes, Jim Hill, Kevin Jacobs, Meesh Rheault Miller, and Eric Sarai, with sound by Sarai and Peter Randlette.

Plus new produce “Persian Pickles” from Jodie Mack and a correspondence film “Imperceptihole” by Robert Todd and Lori Felker. Keen-eyed NFlix viewers may recall that Jodie & Rob and Lori are all veterans of the first ever Northern Flickers show (2 years ago this month!), so this is kind of like our ‘comeback special’ in the fab new space. And still more – the world premiere of “Exquisitive Corpuscle” so far! Hope you can join us.
