MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS!!
Guest curator: CHRISTOPHER HARRIS
The title for the series of films I’ve selected for the month of December is DOWN TO EARTH: EXTRATERRISTRIALS AND HEAVENLY BODIES.
For the final installment of the series I’ve selected Craig Baldwin’s by now canonical “Tribulation 99” (1992/16mm/48min). Baldwin’s film is an inspired collage that rewrites the history of the Cold War through the prism of sci-fi paranoia. A kaleidoscopic mash-up of newsreels, grade-Z low budget science fiction movies, educational films, super-imposed titles and conspiratorial narration, “Tribulation 99” is a towering milestone that helped to establish the continued vitality of the found footage film.
