About The Event
Christopher Coppola's Art Film Trilogy is made up of three art films meant to be screened together in the order they were shot. He made these three films while attending the San Francisco Art Institute back in the early and mid 80’s. The films ask a philosophical question and are shot in both b&w and color. The first film WAKING UP asks the question what is the difference between male and female perception? The second film PLATO’S CAVE asks the question what if someone really believed the shadows described in the Allegory of the Cave from Republic? Could the animal still become a person without being blinded by the light? The third film ORPHEUS asks the question how important is our outer world Orpheus and our inner world Eurdice to be a balanced human being. Christopher went to the University of Redlands School of Music studying new music composition before going to the San Francisco Art Institute to study film. He was interested in something he called Equal Art Synthesis—to be able to see music and hear film. These films clearly show his love of experimental music as well as experimental film.
G-Men From Hell
When corrupt FBI agents Dean Crept and Mike Mattress die, they are sent to hell, though they believe it must be an error. They escape by stealing a magical crystal from Satan that sends them back to Earth. Determined to buy their way into heaven, the two perform good deeds despite their ignorance of morality. They set up a private investigation business, and Greydon Lake and his wife, Gloria, both hire them to investigate the other. They attempt to solve the mystery of their own murders and evade the police, led by Lt. Langdon and Det. Dalton, who suspect them of killing their informant Buster. Meanwhile, Weenie Man, a shady informant also sent to hell, tells Satan about their escape; Satan gives the G-Men two days to complete their investigations and return his magic crystal. Along the way, they become involved with the plots of a mad scientist, Dr. Boifford, who resurrects Buster, and a superhero by the name of Cheetah Man.
