ATA is pleased to present IN PERSON: MELISSA AUF dER MAUR

Join us for a special event with celebrated Canadian musician Melissa Auf der Maur (Hole, Smashing Pumpkins), who will present herHD fantasy film Out Of Our Minds, part of a multidisciplinary conceptual project that includes her 2010 solo album Out Of Our Minds and a new comic book. Described by Auf der Maur as a “blood-and-witches fantasy” about “the hunt for the heart,” the film is a Norse-inspired, music-filled experimental saga without dialogue in which a crashing car opens a gateway to parallel worlds and other time periods. OOOM was conceived and produced by Auf der Maur (who plays the central character), directed by Tony Stone, and features a score by Auf der Maur and Los Angeles psychedelic rockers The Entrance Band. It premiered at Sundance in 2009. “A flamboyant and fantastical new film…A 28-minute rush of stunning images, expressive music and narrative experimentation…A journey through parallel worlds that brings together a Viking heart, a car crash and a bleeding forest for an unforgettable climax, this imaginative mini-epic is proudly self-produced, shot in HD and fueled by solar power” ICA (Institute of Contemporary Arts/ London). Colour, HDCAM. 28 minutes.
