Cone Eater (2004) by Takeshi Murata
The Indian Boundry Line (2010) by Thomas Comerford
Conversations at the Edge, a Chicago-based underground film program, organized in collaboration by the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Department of Film/Video, the Video Data Bank, and the Gene Siskel Film Center, will roll out its impressive 2010 film schedule on 4 Febuary 2009, beginning with a world premiere of Thomas Comerford’s feature-length documentary film, The Indian Boundry Line (2010). Comerford, a Chicago musician and filmmaker, shot the film on DigiBeta video and 16mm, and describes the film as being, “a road very close to my home in Chicago, Rogers Avenue,” tracing the 1816 Treaty of St. Louis boundary between the United States and “Indian Territory.”
Also, we should highlight that on 4 March 2010 glitch-vid duo Takeshi Murata and Robert Beatty will be in attendance to screen their work and perform a live audio-visual performance exclusively tailored for this CATE event.
