Nancy Andrews in person!

“This screening presents two works by Nancy Andrews, including her latest video, Behind the Eyes are The Ears (2010), which follows the research of Dr. Sheri Myes and her revolutionary attempts to expand our perceptions and consciousness. Also screening is Monkeys and Lumps (2003), the first film in the Ima Plume Trilogy, which meditates on our efforts to understand our place in relationship to the unknowable. Throughout this artisanal hybrid film we encounter Chalk-talk specialist Ima Plume, space monkeys, a Donna Haraway puppet, and mysterious lumps.
