Interference AV ft. UNDERVOLT & CO, Jlin, Lightning Bolt, and the Sun Ra Arkestra

RSVP

Leslie Thornton



Filmmaker Leslie Thornton, creator of the experimental cinema classic Peggy and Fred in Hell, instantly bonds with Will Corwin when they discover that Leslie's father, and Will's great-grandfather both worked on the Manhattan Project. Will's great-granddad was a master steam-fitter at the Oak Ridge Uranium refining plant, and LeslieĀ“s pop was a much-higher-up as a nuclear scientist. Much of LeslieĀ“s work addresses the issues of post-apocalypticism, in large part due to having to contend with them on a very near and dear level. And you will hear the description of her father, Slim Pickens style, riding the bomb. Yes, for real.
