When and Where?
Tuesday, May 20, 2008 at 8pm
55 33rd Street, 3rd Floor
Brooklyn, NY

How much?
Just Six Bucks!

What exactly?

Six films, ranging from five minutes to 17 minutes, will address subjects like adaptations of William Carlos Williams to women seeking pleasure to a public premiere of a diary film focussed on Cuba. It sounds very artsy, very experimental, and very cool. Go to the Calendar section of Light Industry's website to see full descriptions.

According to the email sent from Light Industry:
