On the Mend at Pig and Weasel

Posted on Updated on

We’re joining forces with Pig and Weasel next month for the On the Mend Film Festival. It takes place on March 2 at 5PM at 8933 Forestview, Evanston, IL

Pig and Weasel’s inaugural film fest features MFA thesis films from Thavary Krouch, Tim Tamisiea and me, Mario Contreras. All 3 films feature characters that are going though some kind of healing process… all of which are just beginning. There will be a Q&A with the filmmakers and original artwork, curated by Diana Gabriel. Join us!

Under one roof in Chicago’s north suburbs, patrons found contemporary work from Chicago, Bloomington, DeKalb and West Chicago with films that represent/portray Hollywood, New York, Las Vegas, Cambodia, Colombia and Nebraska. It was an eclectic show but, more importantly, it brought together networks and ideas that move toward a common goal. […]
