“Collaborative artists foster revolutionary ideas while thriving off each other’s creativity. Jaclyn Danger, co-founder of screening collective The Cannonball Roarers, hosted a unique “secret screening” in an undisclosed location of Kansas City. Danger’s mission is to screen off-the-radar films in the urban environment to provide a more enhanced viewing experience. She has teamed up with her colleague, Matt Lloyd to launch the latest screening of Wastedland 2, a film produced by Andrew H. Shirley. […]
The first impression of the dopey, animal-like characters struck the audience with laughter and remarks such as “Sounds dope!” or “I love to paint, I love beer!” The film progressed silently, keeping the audience intrigued with the drunken vandals activities being projected onto the cement wall in front of them. The characters relate to the audience when they propose questions such as “What are we doing here? Is this a total waste of time?” and of course, “What’s the point?” These are questions everyone asks themselves at some point in their lives.
Their question is finally answered when a robotic character tells them “The fact that you asked the question, is the reason for the question itself.” Failing to interpret such an ambiguous response, the spirit animals follow suspicious wires to discover the source, and also the “truth”. Audiences will have to watch the movie in order to discover the enlightenment for themselves.” FULL ARTICLE HERE
