Kelley’s Blues

The Lone Star Film Society usually holds its events at the Modern Art Museum, but this Wednesday they’re going in for the much more downmarket (and much more interesting) setting of the Wreck Room. They’re having an evening of short films, hosted by Kelley Baker, a.k.a. The Angry Filmmaker. He’s angry at what he sees as the posturing and fakeness of most independent filmmaking that frequently has slumming movie stars and multimillion-dollar marketing campaigns. He’s worked as a sound editor on a number of Gus Van Sant films (including My Own Private Idaho, Good Will Hunting, and Finding Forrester), as well as on Todd Haynes’ Far From Heaven. He’s now touring the country to promote his own feature film Kicking Bird, though it won’t be on the program.
What will be there will be two of his short subjects: Friday Night, which deals with his real-life brush with death from an allergic reaction, and Tales From I-5, which looks at his nonstop road trips from Portland, Ore., to Los Angeles, with special commentary from the Tappet Brothers of National Public Radio’s Car Talk program. This evening’s program does seem to have a car theme, as the other films include Stolen Toyota, a lament for the loss of a pickup truck, and That Really Obscure Object of Desire, which details its filmmaker’s obsession with his 1928 Model A Ford.
The Lone Star Film Society screens its short films at 6:30pm Wed at The Wreck Room, 3208 W 7th St, FW. Donations are accepted. Call 503-294-0934.
