Special Premiere Screenings!

(2009-2014) dir Andre Perkowski w/William S. Burroughs [70 min; Digital]
This found footage adaptation of Burroughs’ novel is an epic, ongoing labor of cinematic love by filmmaker Andre Perkowski. We’ll be screening the 70-minute “assault version” that distills the 3-hour (and growing) work to a more manageable length. Perkowski culls his images from hundreds of hours of stock footage and meticulously matches them to pre-recorded readings of the novel by Burroughs and others.

“‘Nova Express’ never gets old.” – Peter Keough, The Boston Globe
