An Iowa City homecoming! Jesse McLean & Mike Gibisser are both former Chicagoans who have recently left us for teaching positions at the University of Iowa, but they've been coaxed back to put together a fun evening of films and videos. Jesse McLean's work is humorous and complex, full of pop cultural allusions and surprising emotions. Mike Gibisser's work is full of lovingly-framed and painterly-lit film images that blur the line between experimental, documentary, and essay. It'll be a night of new and old work, and a few surprises.
