Event Description

full program info at:

"Daniel and Renwick make some of the liveliest work on the microcinema circuit, wherein film, video, art and music collide with edge, confrontational, unpredictable and often exuberant intensity." --The Washington Post.

Portland-based independent filmmakers Vanessa Renwick and Bill Daniel - of last year'spopular "Lucky Bum Film Tour" - have added Victoria, BC to their fall tour of short films.
Entitled "Heart Attack Island," the four short films will also screen in Astoria, Olympia, Port Townsend, Orcas Island, Portland, Bellingham Tacoma, Vancouver, BC and Seattle as part of what is developing into an annual tour.

Renwick will screen two films: "Hope and Prey" and ""Britton, S. Dakota.," while Daniel will present "Ponder Yonder" in which his film is projected on a sail mounted on his mini-van. A
fourth film, "National Archives, V.I.," by Travis Wilkerson will also be screened.

Renwick's subject matter ranges from gray wolves to library
books, from obsessive collagists to pro-life advocates, from the lives of truckers to her own bare-foot hitchhiking. Her work has been described as "delightfully idiosyncratic" and "rigorously experimental." "For cinephiles who appreciate special effects made by ideas rather than technology,
Renwick's (work) deserves a packed house." --The Oregonian.

Daniel uses his art to navigate the fringes of society. "I'm a
recorder, a documentarian," he says, "someone who's looking for different ways to present material. And like a lot of documentarians, I'm interested in communicating real conditions across generations. I want the future to
know what the present looks like." Daniel's previous screening at the fifty fifty featured 20+ years of hobo train hopping narratives pieced together in an unforgettable outdoor
installation that simultanously juxtaposed images and sound on two seprate screens: one screen took the shape of a campfire, the other a moon suspended high into the nightime sky. For those lucky bums in attendence, the experience was mind-blowing.
