DEAREST CHICAGO, PLEASE LOVE ME!
YOURS TRULY, DETROIT
A Detroit Mini-Festival
Programmer Brandon Walley in person!
Saturday, August 23rd at 6:00, 8:00, & 10:00 pm
$5 per screening or $10 for all
The NIGHTINGALE is delighted to host Detroit filmmaker and programmer, Brandon Walley, to present 3 separate moving image programs that survey the cultural and physical landscape of Detroit from filmmakers that have lived there and created these works over the past decade. This mini-film-fest titled DEAREST CHICAGO, PLEASE LOVE ME! YOURS TRULY, DETROIT is a retort against the two extremes of content that usually dominate media about Detroit; that of exploitive ruin porn or the over-simplification that Detroit is quickly rising from the ashes.
Brandon Walley is the Program Director for CORKTOWN CINEMA, the new incarnation of The BURTON THEATRE: an eclectic independent cinema that features art house, avant-garde, LGBT, foreign, local, and cult films. For the past six years he has also acted as the Regional Programmer for Media City International Film Festival in Windsor, Ontario. As a filmmaker, Brandon’s work has been received at film festivals and art exhibitions internationally.
This screening continues a dual city moving image dialogue. Last summer at Trinosophes in Detroit, The Nightingale’s Christy LeMaster presented CHICAGO LOVES DETROIT: Recent Short Film & Video Work from Chicago.
