“A brilliant slice of bedroom pop, infectiously catchy and rough around all of the right edges…A wild, rag-tag, day-glow world that exists both a millennia ahead of present time and one step in the past. Every frame is filled with wonders that are easily recognizable, yet slightly out of place. Like an antique store in the future…Not to be Missed.”
On July 26th, we celebrated the online release of the uninterrupted 47-minute director’s cut of Sci Fi Sol. And what better way to kick it off than with our 2nd annual house party at Star Labs.
Noble Square’s own Professor Weinsteiner concocted an exclusive party beer-brew, giving the event a distinct and unforgettable flavor. Fashion designer MxMiJe@n$ unveiled Wonder Women, his new original couture leather jacket. Director Joseph R. Lewis introduced SFS’s party-premiere screening with a live-performance as Captain Famous accompanied by an original VJ set by Jeffy Cymbals. Many thanks to Brian Jarreau for the stellar photo coverage.
Sci Fi Sol began production in early 2011 and shot for over a year throughout the beautiful city of Chicago. Many soon-to-be-razed Chicago landmarks were included in the movie, including the last remaining tower of Cabrini Green and legendary comedy club Improv Olympic, where songwriter and star Melody Nife moonlights as Musical Director.

FINALLY, LILLIAN & DAN in the BRAIN KITCHEN
Director Mike Gibisser presented his quietly disquieting movie FINALLY, LILLIAN & DAN in person at our Brain Kitchen Theatre last Friday night.
A gourmet BBQ was catered for us by Grillmaster MXMI, who also shared his tales of dangerous battles with mythic sea creatures. Laura Zinger (Director, ‘Proceed and Be Bold!‘) impressed all in attendance when she summoned a cloud of moths from a spigot. Once bellies were full and potions had been drank, We, the Mighty Beings of the Kingdom of Nawizopaati, ascended to the Brain Kitchen Theatre and partook in a screening/ancient sweatbox ritual meant to induce illumination.
Fevers, vomiting, impatience, and eventually, Nirvana ensued.

As a prelude to our feature, we were proud to screen Episode One of the Four Eyed Monsters Podcast, by Arin Crumley and Susan Buice. For those unfamiliar with Four-Eyed Monsters and it’s historic significance in the albeit abbreviated history of independent online film distribution, do investigate further.
