As part of the 2007-2008 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers, the I.P. Stanback Museum and Planetarium is pleased to present THE SHORT FILMS OF ROGER BEEBE: DOCUMENTS, EXPERIMENTS & WISECRACKS by Roger BeebeTHE SHORT FILMS OF ROGER BEEBE: DOCUMENTS, EXPERIMENTS & WISECRACKS by Roger Beebe

Sunday, September 16 at 5 p.m.
Roger Beebe's short experimental films vary widely in form (from slow, contemplative films to aggressive collages), in medium (from digital video to super 8mm and 16mm film), and in tone (from comic to poetic); but what they share is an interest in using experimental forms to think about some aspect of our contemporary world.

Opening Short: Mr. Extion is a fiction work by Griffin Hood & Barry Battles in which two life long friends and aspiring filmmakers find that developing an original idea, with no budget, is hard to pull off...especially down South. Through the span of a day, the two reveal their true feelings on film, stereotypes, race, and each other.
