Going out with style

The season finale of the BHMC’s spring season featured a trio of Portland’s most assiduous artists. ┬áJulie Perini, Pam Minty, and Jody Darbi got the show started by offering a direct-animation workshop in which the audience scrapped, painted, scratched, and otherwise hand-manipulated 16mm filmstrips of some of history’s most vile characters (Hitler, Joseph McCarthy, etc). ┬áThe screening then began, highlighting new, old, and still-in-progress work, and was capped off by screening the hand-manipulated film the audience had created previous to the show.
