Possibly of interest to your New York-based members...  Laurie Anderson will narrate Guy Maddin's new film, BRAND UPON THE BRAIN on May 12th.  In addition to the live narration, the silent film will be accompanied by a live orchestra, Foley special effects team and Castrato.  It will be a bizarre, unique event...  Details below, and more info about the film, tickets, photos, etc., can be found at:  http://www.branduponthebrain.com.

An Earth-shaking Live Spectacle, Coming to New York!

With a LIVE Narrator! A Castrato!! Several Foley Artists!!! And an Orchestra!!!!

May 9th - 15th at the Village East Cinemas, director Guy Maddin's (THE SADDEST MUSIC IN THE WORLD) latest feature film BRAND UPON THE BRAIN! will be presented as an expansive live spectacle with an 11-piece orchestra, a 5-piece Foley team, a Castrato and celebrity narrators, including Crispin Glover, Justin Bond of Kiki and Herb, Isabella Rossellini, Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio, Poet Laureate John Ashberry, and many others. Guy Maddin will appear in person to present the film.  

"Guy Maddin's latest astonishment-- has ransacked film history and his own delirious imagination to create a work like none other: a silently shot film about a man who, on revisiting his childhood home, hurtles unto a past where orphan children, coy lesbian lovers, and a mad scientist converge." -- Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
Whatever are young "Guy Maddin's" parents really up to in their lighthouse home/orphanage on a chilly remote island? Overbearing Mother (Gretchen Krich) tracks her son's (Sullivan Brown) every move, calling him home over the "Aerophone" just as something interesting is about to happen! And poor Sis (Maya Lawson) -- Mother will never let her have any fun! The intrigue continues as deranged Mother, hell-bent on restoring her youth, and sinister Scientist-Father (Todd Jefferson Moore) engage in diabolical, secret experimentation. 

Equal parts childhood reminiscence, Expressionist horror movie, teen detective serial and Grand Guignol reverie, BRAND! has been earning unqualified raves during 9 months on the festival circuit, including Festival-best mentions at the 2006 Toronto Film Festival, 2006 New York Film Festival, and the 2007 Berlinale.

Following the live tour, BRAND! will open as a regular film, with a pre-recorded soundtrack narrated by Isabella Rossellini.
