Filmmaker/curator/professor Roger Beebe returns to the road in January 2015 with a touring program of his multiple-projector performances that takes him to three corners of North America with an additional stop off in the Antipodes (Australia/New Zealand). The tour features several of his best-known projector performances (including the six-projector show-stopping space jam “Last Light of a Dying Star”) alongside recent award-winning work in single-channel HD video as well as the premiere of his latest multi-projector mayhem, “SOUND FILM.” These works take on a range of topics from the forbidden pleasures of men crying (“Historia Calamitatum (The Story of My Misfortunes)”) and the secret logic of the book of Genesis (“Beginnings”) to Las Vegas suicides (“Money Changes Everything”) and companies jockeying to be at the start of the phone book (“AAAAA Motion Picture”).

“[Beebe’s films] implicitly and explicitly evoke the work of Robert Frank, Garry Winogrand and Lee Friedlander, all photographers of the atomic age whose Western photographs captured the banalities, cruelties and beauties of imperial America.”

–David Fellerath, The Independent Weekly

“Beebe’s films are both erudite and punk, lo-fi yet high-brow shorts that wrestle with a disfigured, contemporary American landscape.”

–Wyatt Williams, Creative Loafing (Atlanta)

“Beebe’s work is goofy, startling, and important.” –Daniel Kraus, Wilmington Encore
