In The Jungle (2017) Directed by Stephanie M. Barber

Doors at 7:15 PM, Screening at 7:45 PM @ The Mini Microcinema - 1329 Main St.

In The Jungle is a musical essay film written and directed by
Stephanie Barber, and starring Cricket Arrison (of Wham City) and
M.C. Schmidt (of Matmos). In The Jungle, playfully and sorrowfully
tells the tale of an unreliable narrator in a self imposed exile. Given a grant to study the equivalent of animal cries and whines in jungle flora, our heroine has lived for 5 years deep in an unnamed jungle. This jungle serves as an extended metaphor for excessive and continual growth, death, fear and sustenance; a metaphorical space of chaos in which the scientist finds solace and which stands in contrast to the human jungle of “civilization.” The collision of human civilization and wildlife is both a contemplation of extinction and environmentalism as well as a metaphor for the wild in our psyches and imagination. (63 minutes) TICKETS: $10
