This screening is a BENEFIT to raise funds for the ParaTheatrical ReSearch performance of "New Revelations of Being" (text by Antonin Artaud) to be directed by Antero Alli later this year.

"The Invisible Forest incites and dares the viewer to let go of concepts and accept the risky adventure of following the free, unimpeded energies of  the body and mind. Since, in real life, Alli engages in paratheatrical research, it becomes obvious that the film’s fictional story is constructed out of documentary elements." - David Finkelstein, filmthreat.com (4-stars)

Finkelstein's review in its entirety.

Of special note:

SYLVI & ANTERO ALLI perform a short set of their music before the film. Filmmaker Q&A after the film.

Doors at 6:30pm.

Advance tickets available.

THE INVISIBLE FOREST
Director: 
Antero Alli
Country: 
USA
Year: 
2008
Runtime: 
111 minutes

Alex, an experimental theatre director (Antero Alli), brings his troupe out to a forest to perform his vision of French Surrealist Antonin Artaud's magic theatre of ghosts, gods, and demons. During their paratheatrical  experiment, Alex is haunted by disturbing dreams where Artaud appears and mocks his ambitions. In an attempt to stop these dreams, he stays awake for three days. With his sanity finally pushed to its limits, Alex visits a psychotherapist who suggests hypnotic regression to remedy his problem. Under hypnosis, we travel with Alex into the underworld of his Subconscious through hallucinations, dreams, and memories to a place beyond belief and maybe, beyond the mind itself. Written and directed by Antero Alli with additional text by William Shakespeare and Antonin Artaud.
