Featuring a special publication with art and writings by Robinson.

Michael Robinson is one of the most exciting new voices in experimental film. Recoding snippets ripped from popular movies, t.v. and song, Robinson makes personal, digital landscapes out of our cultural debris.

Jack Smith was the grandaddy of the underground film scene, who used actual debris to construct libidinal playlands for his flaming creatures. Smith's last finished film, No President, is a "political burlesque" that Parker Tyler once described as "an even more daring exploitation of the themes of Flaming Creatures."
