Brooklyn-based artist Laura Parnes blurs the lines between narrative film and video art, storytelling conventions and experimentation. This evening’s program centers on her recent cross-platform digital film County Down (2012), in which an epidemic of psychosis among the adults in a gated community coincides with a teenage girl’s invention of a designer drug. Mirroring rave culture and the unbridled optimism surrounding technology during the 1990s, County Down presents a society so obsessed with novelty and consumerism that it euphorically embraces its own destruction. Program approx. 90 min.
