Dogs In Space (35mm)

Freaks – chainsaw-wielding synth players, students, activists, and runaways wander in and out of frame as the camera roams the scene as a detached eye, capturing the drugged-out excess of transient, 20-something misfits living in a permanent state of ruin within a communal squat. In Dogs in Space, writer/director Richard Lowenstein takes a decidedly scuzzy, nostalgia trip through the Australian “Little Bands” scene, where platinum dye-job groupies and henna-red haired frontman writhe on grime-coated carpets encrusted in tragic, punk-poet romance.

Queercore: How To Punk A Revolution (MN Premier Co-presented by Twin Cities Gay Scene)

What happens when the community you need is not the community you have? Tell yourself it exists over and over, make fan zines that fabricate hordes of queer punk revolutionaries, create subversive movies, and distribute those movies widely—and slowly, the community you’ve fabricated might become a real and radical heartbeat that spreads internationally.
