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.
