These distinct, experimental works take stars and other filmmakers as their starting point, working with found footage or repotage style camera work, these seven filmmakers explore star text and the particular form of personal obsession that such heavenly bodies engender. The screening will be Dirty Looks’ first rooftop screening of the season and will be accompanied by a complimentary publication produced with Birdsong Micropress. DIRTY LOOKS is a monthly platform for queer experimental film and video.
