11:00am - 4:30pm: Jeremy Rourke Live Performance (FREE)
Jeremy Rourke creates videos and multi-media performances rooted in experimental animation and original music. A self-taught animator eschewing digital effects for hands-on techniques, his animation table is full of paper ephemera, photo-puppets, clay, paint, pencils, lights, and flora.
His work fuses interviews, field recordings, vintage photography, time-lapse video, text, joy, lyrics, and cut paper into works that explore the details of our shared and personal histories.
Location: AIFF Film Center
8:30pm: Weed and Wine
Join us at ScienceWorks in Ashland for this unique live & outdoor film screening event.
Continents apart from one another, two farming families aim to reinvent themselves on their land. One family-a strong-willed French matriarch and the son she raised among her vines-tends a centuries-old, biodynamic vineyard in the Southern Rhône. Across the ocean in Humboldt, California, another family-a brash father and his more reserved son-carefully manage a state-recognized, organic cannabis farm. The feature documentary Weed & Wine interweaves their stories, urging comparisons and teasing out contradictions between France’s revered winemaking traditions and the artisan culture emerging alongside the legal cannabis industry.
