      EVENT DETAILS
      Cellular Cinema 52 - AARON ZEGHERS: DANNY (11-24)

      After being diagnosed with leukemia in 1993, Danny Ryder picks up a camcorder and begins to create a film, with himself as the central character. The lo-fi Vancouver cityscape reflects back an alienated existentialism as Danny grapples with his personal demons, spurred on in the face of his own mortality. Danny as himself is affable and accomplished. He is intelligent enough to have built an impressive sailboat, but also seemingly unable to fend off his neurosis, frustration, and regret. What comes forth is a sometimes-hilarious, sometimes-heartbreaking found footage documentary about disease, mental illness, manhood, and the meaning of life. Co-director, Aaron Zeghers, is Dannys nephew. Cellular Cinema is an organically evolving, ongoing screening series of experimental film, video, and performance. We are the only regularly occurring event in Minneapolis or St. Paul that features short form, experimental contemporary moving image art. The Cellular Cinema community is dedicated to the idea that moving image art can be a realm of exploration, improvisation and play on a small scale, using a wide range of tools, techniques and technologies, unbound by the commercial considerations of mainstream narrative media. We have the capacity to screen work on 16mm, super-8, sometimes with multiple projectors, sometimes including live sound or performance accompaniment, as well as HD and SD video. http://cellularcinema.org/ NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES.
