Crispin Hellion Glover's Big Slide Show Part 1 and What Is It?
Crispin Hellion Glover's Big Slide Show Part 1
Crispin Glover's uniquely personal and singular roadshow, The Big Slideshow, precedes screenings of his films. Part storytime and part hypnotic performance art, it is described by the artist as a "one hour dramatic narration of eight different profusely illustrated books [he has] made over the years," delivered with the intensity of a revival tent preacher. Afterward, Mr. Glover will be on hand for a Q&A and book signing.


What Is It?
2005, dir. Crispin Glover
With Michael Blevis, Carlos Richardson, Crispin Glover
82 min. 35mm

A labor of love more than nine years in the making, What Is It? is an unsettling, surreal, and thought-provoking head-trip that prompts many more questions than the film's title alone. A cinematic nightmare of sorts, Glover populates his film with various taboos that have long been censored or untouched by corporate-funded studios. Many of the actors have Down syndrome, one has cerebral palsy, and others are masked pornographic actresses. There are snails, a man in blackface, and Mr. Glover stalking around in long hair and a fur coat, credited as "Dueling Demi-God Auteur/The Young Man's Inner Psyche and Id." What is it, indeed.
