My film is showing tomorrow in Austin, Texas!

That’s right -- All That Sheltering Emptiness, the film I made with Gina Carducci, is showing tomorrow, and here are the details:

HOMOSCOPE: Third Annual International Queer Film & Arts Festival
Sunday, August 29, 2010
Doors at 8pm, films at 8:30
United States Art Authority
2906 Fruth St (29th & Guadulupe)
Austin, TX 78705
(512) 480-9562

And, a reminder about the film:

All That Sheltering Emptiness is a meditation on elevators, hotel lobbies, hundred dollar bills, the bathroom, a cab, chandeliers, cocktails, the receptionist, arousal, and other routines in the life of a New York City callboy. Gorgeously hand-processed in full 16mm glory, All That Sheltering Emptiness explodes the typical narratives of desire, escape and intimacy to evoke something more honest.
16mm, color, optical sound, 7 min.

I saw this yesterday in Austin. It was absolutely amazing, definitely my favorite at the event. Seemed like it really caught people's attention as the room grew silent and people tuned in. You must make more!

Daddysambiguity, thank you so much -- I'm so glad you enjoyed the film, and that the room grew silent... I love to hear that feedback, it's always so mysterious when the film is showing out there in the world and I'm not sure how people are reacting -- thanks so much for writing!

Love --

Nix, that sounds so intriguing as its own phrase -- "envies daddysambiguity!"

And, as for the film, any places (festivals or the like) that you think we should send it in your part of the world, just let me know...

Love --
