Tonight! A Night with Underground Imagist Filmmaker Tom Palazzolo
Where: Logan Center for the Arts, 915 E. 60th St, Chicago, IL 60637
When: Friday, March 11, 2016 — 7:00 P.M.
For fifty years, Tom Palazzolo has chronicled the overlooked events and rituals that unfold across Chicago’s neighborhoods. Join him for a sampling of films from across his career: O (1967), a surreal trip through the Chicago of the mind; The Tattooed Lady of Riverview Park (1967), about the featured attraction at the Riverview Park freak show; Jerry’s Deli (1970), which serves customer abuse and corned beef; Love It/Leave It (1973), a collage of street protest, cars, and nudity; and Down Clark St. (1995), a look at forgotten characters from Chicago’s past.
Post-screening Q&A moderated by Jim Dempsey, co-curator of the Smart Museum’s Monster Roster exhibition.
