When I Become A Ghost

February 24 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


When I become a Ghost is a a triptych of short experimental films presented as a gallery installation by award-winning film makers Leslie Streit and Robin McCain.  There will also be a documentary video of encounters with the paranormal and other special effects for an immersive experience throughout the gallery. Leslie Streit was recently interviewed about the project by Gillian Sand in Chopso, an online magazine about contemporary culture.

When I Become A Ghost is a different kind of ghost story that will both fascinate and send shivers down your spine.
The installation consists of 3 short videos – Journey, Haunting and Regeneration. Each video is projected onto the gallery walls to create a dreamlike environment across time, space and ever changing landscapes.
The films share a single rhythmic soundscape of four musical pieces including 2 tracks by Nanotopia who use bio waves from Mycelium mushrooms and a synthesizer to create their intriguing sounds. The narratives can be experienced in random order and are on a continuous loop throughout the three hour event.
Leslie Streit and Robin McCain were influenced by the works of Maya Deren, mid twentieth century filmmaker and surrealist artist, as well as by the experiments with chance of John Cage and Marcel Duchamp.
The woman is played by Susan Marvin, an international actress and dancer. Creepy, beautiful, surreal and evocative – everyone enjoys a good ghost story. For information, bios and more: http://ghoststoriesproject.com/
