Psychotronic Afterschool Special

Psychotronic Afterschool Special


Tuesday, Jul 5

Curated and hosted by Portland 16mm film archivist/programmer Greg Hamilton.

School's out for Summer and the PSYCHOTRONIC AFTERSCHOOL SPECIAL is back with a visual explosion of films about feeding your head. Made up of mind-bending educational films, animations and commercials from the 1970s and 80s, this media mash-up is packed with plenty of laughs and cringes. Whether it's learning where your food comes from or avoiding the perils of computer hacking, this program has it all.  Don't miss this one-of-a-kind media massacre projected in 16mm! 

Featuring appearances by Morris the Moose, James Earl Jones, and the inconceivable Wallace Shawn.

Featuring three special films:

MORRIS GOES TO SCHOOL - Go to class with a moose and experience the most bizarre stop-motion animations ever made.

TILT - An amazing psychedelic animation that addresses industrialism, poverty, neo-liberalism and miltiarism. 

HOW TO BECOME A PERFECT PERSON IN THREE DAYS - Afterschool special about Milo, who never seems to get it right until he learns the art of Perfectology from the intrepid Dr. Silverfish (Wallace Shawn).  

Runtime - 104 minutes
