This weekend, Unrequited Leisure’sAdjusting the Lens: FEST! will be showing online and at the UL gallery in Nashville, Tennessee. From the organizers:
Adjusting the Lens is a series of traveling screening events started in 2018. These events are organized around thematic selections of works and have been presented in a variety of indoor and outdoor venues. This year we are launching a hybrid version of the project, featuring online live programming along with a presentation of the full program running on loop in our physical gallery space.
I’m very grateful to announce that Farewell, Doomed Planet! has been nominated for an Independent Music Award for Best Longform Video. See the full playlist of videos here, and check out the IMA website for more nominees.
In the video, EJK herself flies through space like some kind of Tinkerbell / Captain Marvel hybrid. As its name implies, “Departure” feels like the most triumphant part of the story, as Exclusion Zone Earth, overrun with mutant Chernobyl wolves, is left behind.
