The Revenge of the Dead Indians: In Memoriam John Cage

Other Minds presents a showing of the not-quite-documentary The Revenge of the Dead Indians on Monday, June 15. It's a benefit for Other Minds and includes a reception.

Details:

THE REVENGE OF THE DEAD INDIANS:
In Memoriam John Cage
a composed film

Monday, June 15, 2009
6:00pm Reception
7:30pm Screening
Sundance Kabuki Cinemas
1881 Post Street, San Francisco, California

This celebration of John Cage's work, influences, and thoughts is neither a feature film nor a documentary: footage of Cage and performances of his music are assembled together with 42 personalities, from well-known artists to market vendors and street cleaners, "found" video and audio landscapes, and theatrically directed readings. The result is an unexpected and fascinating combination of intellectual thought, viewpoints, and opinions.

This one-time film screening, a benefit for Other Minds, includes complimentary beverages and hors d'oeuvres and a chance to hear well-known figures such as Noam Chomsky, Merce Cunningham, Frank Gehry, Ellsworth Kelly, Yoko Ono, and Frank Zappa pay tribute to John Cage.

Seating is general admission. Tickets are available on a step-scale at $15, $25, and $50.

Directed by Henning Lohner
