GETTING LOST IN THE bemisUNDERGROUND
Posted on 01/01/2008
Sixty people found their way to the bemisUNDERGROUND on Saturday, February 2, for an evening of politically charged and often hilarious culture jamming. The Lost Film Fest featured banned videos, such as documentaries with protest footage and not-for-children cartoons. The communal event was laid back, akin to watching movies at a friend's place. And audience participation got people to tell jokes, with the best winning a "TV Be Gone," a decidedly underground device that turns off any TV from a safe distance. The evening ended with host Scott Beibin challenging people to go to sports bars on Sunday and turn of the Super Bowl. (No word yet of any casualties.)
