Portland filmmaker Bob Moricz began making films in the third grade, but life changed for him after meeting George Kuchar and being invited to witness the goings-on in Kuchar’s “AC/DC Psychotronic Teleplays” class at the San Francisco Art Institute. Brazenly anti-formalist, Moricz’s trans-genre film entertainments utilize conventional cinematic tropes only to reveal the banal falsities contained within them, ultimately transcending their narrow scope by opening up new revelations through neo-expressionistic no-fi imagery. Included in this mixtape of short films and excerpts are CHARLEMAGNE! (2012), NAKED PREACHER LADY (2012), I AM UGLY AND I WANT TO DIE SO WHY DON’T YOU JUST PLEASE FUCK ME (2010), BUMPS (2009), THE SLAVES OF DESTRUCTO (2007), A NIGHT IN THE LIFE OF DORIS DOLORES (2007), NOTHING IS GOOD (2006), A BIG ASS LUST FOR SPEED (2001), RICH LITTLE RICHARD III VERSUS THE CRACK WHORE MARINE CORPS (2000), GUTWRENCHED (1991), and more. (90 mins.)
Director Bob Moricz will be in attendance to introduce the program.
BEYOND BEYOND: THE BOB MORICZ A/V MIXTAPE screens Thursday, March 13 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum). The film is being presented as part of our ongoing Northwest Tracking series.
Tickets are available online or at the door.

Adjust Your Tracking
… And we’re back. Joe and Erik get back to recording after a long absence. We plan to bring the show back to regularity, and we hope you faithful listeners haven’t forgotten about us (thanks for your patience by the way). As for this week, in perhaps the last of all the lists to come […]
This week, Joe and Erik can’t find much to care about in terms of mainstream film releases, so they instead look at two smaller films well worth checking out, Computer Chess and Drinking Buddies.
