Videopolis @ Metro Gallery

Videopolis 2009
May 8th-10th

Metro Gallery 1700 N Charles Street

In an effort to explore the tangible boundaries of the moving image, Videopolis showcases local fringe film and video work at the Metro Gallery, 1700 North Charles St. in Baltimore. The festival includes features, shorts, and live performances that manipulate the moving image, as well as video installations that will be available for viewing for a month. The festivities begin Friday, May 8th with music videos and performances by System D-128, DrewTube, Dubpixel and Bardot’s Gems From the Vault. Saturday, May 9th will feature “One Down”, comedy shorts and performances by Steve Strohmeier, Jana Hunter and Papercuts. Sunday, May 10th we’ll screen feature “Isle of the Damned”, documentary shorts, and close with a live performance of an original score to Fritz Lang’s “Metropolis” by Adrian Bond and Joanne Juskus.
