The Accountant
Glenn Gers, 106:00, 16mm (shown on video)

This “no-budget magical-realist disaster movie, shot for $62,000, in 88 locations with 120 actors”, is the story of a gentle man living a double life as “The Accountant”, a vigilante who tries to protest the lack of civilized behavior in New York by handcuffing litterers to trashcans. But thanks to an imposter’s manipulation of the media, and the media’s manipulation of the public’s mind, he inadvertently brings about the end of civilization. A narrator-hero guides us through a Dickensian tale involving 18 principal characters -- reporters, cops, beggars, gangsters, actors, community activists, and a billionaire -- in a tragicomedy of race, class, good intentions and bad luck.

10:00 - ROCK OPERA

Rock Opera
Bob Ray, 90:00, 16mm & Super8 (shown on video)

The comedic tale of Austin musician Toe’s struggle to put together a tour for his band, PigPoke. Through selling dirt weed, stabbing people in the back, and double-crossing half a dozen of the meanest sons of bitches in Texas, Toe puts himself in a position to achieve his dreams. If you’re a stoner musician, or just like to laugh at them, ROCK OPERA should be right up your alley.

The Edge Of Quarrel
David Larson, 120:00, video

If the powers that be decided to make an After School Special about the battles between the punks and straight-edgers, it probably wouldn’t be as authentic as this. Rocky Votolato (of Waxwing), John Pettibone (formerly of Undertow), and Dann Gallucci (of The Murder City Devils) star as three old friends who have grown apart over a four year absence and now find themselves on different sides of a Punk vs. SxE conflict.
