Happy Birthday, Paul Sharits!

He would have been 68 today. Please visit the official Paul Sharits memorial website, run by his son Christopher, in his honor. (It’s a really great website.)

Here’s a 2010 short documentary about seeing Sharits’ Shutter Interface at the Hirshhorn Museum:

Happy Birthday, Alejandro Jodorowsky!

He’s 82 today. And in case you didn’t feel like dropping acid today, watch the trailer for The Holy Mountain instead:

Filmmaker To Know: Mike Rollo

Mike Rollo is a Montreal-based experimental documentary filmmaker who specializes in making films that deal with issues of geography and identity. For example, his award-winning Ghosts and Gravel Roads features photographs placed in and around abandoned homes out in the middle of nowhere. Viewers are left trying to determine what relation, if any, there is between the people in the photos and the locations.

Rollo is also a founding member of the Double Negative Collective, a group of Montreal artists who both produce and curate experimental media shows. Plus, he teaches film production at Concordia University.
