8pm MIRZA THE MIRACULOUS Den of Muses (42 Architect St)
Mirza the Miraculous is a short, lo-fi, sci-fi, experimental B-movie adventure about a young woman trying to escape from a traveling circus in outer space. The film incorporates dubbed gibberish voices, abstract art, Dustbuster spaceships, remnants of Mardi Gras costumes, broken scientific instruments, Las Vegas signs, toy props, on-screen text and analog electronic music. It’s absurd, kaleidoscopic and homemade.

11:30pm BEACON BIGFOOT Junction (3021 St. Claude Ave)
High school student Mars English has what he believes to be a bigfoot sighting which leads him to investigate other sightings in his area. He ends up discovering that half of his town has encountered Bigfoot. He tries not to judge the veracity of the people who have had encounters but rather takes it as a cultural phenomenon.
About Ron: One of the most prolific and recognizable artists alive today, Ron English has bombed the global landscape with unforgettable images, on the street, in museums, in movies, books and television.
English coined the term POPaganda to describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, from superhero mythology to totems of art history, populated with his vast and constantly growing arsenal of original characters, including MC Supersized, the obese fast-food mascot featured in the hit movie “Supersize Me,” and Abraham Obama, the fusion of America’s 16th and 44th Presidents, an image widely discussed in the media as directly impacting the 2008 election.

6:30pm TIRED MOONLIGHT Lost Love Lounge (2529 Dauphine St. NOLA)
Born of a barefoot bike ride in the summer mountains of Montana, TIRED MOONLIGHT is a love-letter to the unpunctuated Facebook life histories of those forgotten by time and family, sleepovers and fried chicken with 4 year old girls, and a slew of phone calls from middle-aged men at 2am. They would slur as they explained how they had come to find my phone number taped to the wall of the Blue Moon bar in my small hometown. “I saw in the paper you’re makin’ a movie,” they’d say. “I wanna be star.”
