Director Statement

In August 2010, Microsoft released the Kinect, a desktop motion capture device with a price of $100. It was originally intended to interface only with the Xbox, but within 24 hours a worldwide hacking contest produced a digital patch to hook the Kinect straight into your Mac. Blogs like popped up, showing people interacting with digital models in real-time— a lady puppetting a digital parrot with only her hand, a bearded guy in glasses spinning a digital teacup on his finger. My mind boggled. It was like Tron leapt from the computer. What if you didn’t have to four-quadrant industry-leading effects? What if you could apply the expressive potential of our most advanced image-making capabilities— our most advanced human re-creation capabilities like motion capture and facial performance capture— not to stories of warring monsters and alien invasions, but to nuanced and idiosyncratic stories that explore our engagement with our digital selves. I’ve spent the last decade learning how to do this, and this film is the result. Thank you for watching. Allen Colombo, 31 May 2019

About The Event

Ted Geoghegan 2017, USA, 91 mins

The War of 1812 has revived violent hostilities between the British and their erstwhile American colonial subjects. The powerful Mohawk nation of the New York region is divided as to whom they should stand by, and so they maintain a position of neutrality. They want no part in the killing – but the killing is coming to them. An impulsive attack on an American encampment has drawn the vengeful attentions of a ragged band of American military renegades, led by the vicious, racist Hezekiah Holt. Oak, Calvin, and their British lover Joshua flee into the woods so familiar to them, but the murderous musketeers on their trail will not be deterred. Not without the spilling of blood.
