An experiment in collective filmmaking and speculative collaboration featuring dozens of artists from across the globe!

Seattle-based filmmaker and EXcinema founder Salise Hughes commissioned twenty-one international experimental filmmakers spread across four continents to create a short works, resulting in a feature-length film set in North America, Europe, South America and Asia. Employing the cadavre exquis (exquisite corpse) technique invented by the surrealists, the filmmakers wove together a single story by relying on “prompts” for the beginning and ending of their contribution that were supplied to them in advance. The result is a playful experimental road movie in which the closing images of one work also signal the opening of a work created by another artist somewhere else in the world.

To poke around that collage corpus a bit more, ten Chicago artists have been drawn into the exquisite experiment to create a lean dream version of the same.

Tonight, the Chicago version makes its world premiere and the world version makes its Chicago premiere.

THE SPACES BETWEEN CITIES features Pip Chodorov, Charles Chadwick, Kate Lain, Amy Bassin & Mark Bickley, Reed O’Beirne, Konstantinos-Antonios Goutos, Stephen Broomer, Salise Hughes, Douglas Katelus, Blanca Rego, Arto Polus, Robert Zverina, Margaret Rorison,Dustin Zemel, Ben Popp, Insa Langhorst, Anna Kipervaser, Pablo Molina Guerrero, Milan Milosavljevic and Jesse Malmed.

THE SPACES BETWEEN CHICAGOS features Molly Hewitt, Lori Felker,Amir George, Christopher Renton, Paula Pinho Martins Nacif, Josh B Mabe, By Way of Today, Paul Dickinson, Blair Bogin and Jillian Hansen-Lewis.

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here tonight to celebrate the life and love of Hard Drive. :~(

When we started this journey together, we assumed it would end in planned obsolescence, but the years we spent together were the best of our lives.

There are so many good memories to back up. :~)

Like the time we improperly ejected Hard Drive, or the great migration from Windows ➡️ Mac OS, but being so solid and dependable, you didn’t lose a bit or byte of info.

Or that fateful day when your sleek, compact design that had once brought us so much joy, made you slip through our fingers to your final resting place.

We held you in our hands, and felt your 7200 RPMS slow down to zero, until the click of death finally overtook your drive as you entered the great bit bucket in the sky.⛅️

Every time we see a ‘media offline’ message, we are reminded of your absence.

We wish there was a Time Machine that could take us back to all the good times you kept in store for us.

Hard Drive, thank you for being part of our lives, and thank you for the memory. ✌️

Your final wishes of being responsibly recycled will be followed though. ❤️♻️☁️

Unfortunately, it was too expen$$$ive to save your contents so all we have now are these videos. ▶︎

Come pay your respects at our screening/funeral for Hard Drive @ The Nightingale.
