H.D. Bares All: An Evening With H.D. Motyl

In H.D. Motyl's provocatively ambiguous Messages From Jeanne (1989), a man shops in a Chicago supermarket while the sound track plays phone messages from his needy Philadelphia friend Jeanne, reporting what's on TV and pleading with him to call. The brightly colored products the man fingers are compared to the messages, suggesting that both are quickly consumed and forgotten. In Motyl's Token of Love (1993) two men enact their breakup scene three times: the first ends with a punch, and the last includes some genuine tenderness, reflecting the desire to return to key moments in life and do them over again better. Also showing is a work in progress, Oh Michael/Oh Jesus. Motyl will attend the screening. 80 min.
