A/V Geeks present "Section 8" @ Anthology Film Archives in NYC
Whether you consider ‘Section 8’ to be a low-income housing rent supplement or an attempt to act crazy to get out of the military, you have to think about the A/V Geeks Archive which is housed in a former boarding-house/crackhouse that received Section 8 funding. And while seemingly crazy, Skip Elsheimer, founder and main curator of the renowned A/V Geeks Educational Film Archive, has stepped up to the challenge of being assigned a theme for his show. Pulling from his ever-growing collection of over 20,000 16mm films, Skip has cobbled together a program of films related to the number 8. The program includes the haunting Multiplication Rock short FIGURE EIGHT, a film about a chain-smoking octopus, OCTOPUFF IN KUMQUAT, an Oldsmobile 88 commercial and many more odd and wonderful films. Bring some friends! Door prizes! Admission $8.
