A Sensory Combo
Sarah Jeong gave a talk on Star Wars and fascism to a packed house at the Missouri Theatre last night, after which the lights dimmed and the gloriously weird film RAT FILM lit the screen. Whatever your planned schedule for the weekend, I’d recommend making time for this sensory combo. Sarah writes about technology and the human being in a oddly touching, funny, scary, thoughtful way that perfectly led into this oddly touching, funny, scary, thoughtful film about the rats of Baltimore and the humans they share space with. I left with a head full of ideas that made the world seem both more frightening and welcoming, and that’s a night at the movies.
