The Louisville Film Society presents filmmaker Steve Gebhart
Print this page

It's been a musically-themed last couple of weeks over at the Dreamland Film Center. It's a good thing. Music is important. It stirs the soul and lifts it up. It is a healing balm, something that can help us get along during our rough patches – or it can take our good times and escalate them to a frenzy of joy and jubilation. I want to make a recommendation – and this is a spur-of-the-moment decision on my part. I highly suggest that all of you watch the film Sound of Noise

. It's on Netflix. Watch the trailer. This is a Good Movie. It is one of those happiness-inducing things. It's about guerrilla percussionists and their antics. Having a bad day? Not anymore. This film is great.

Let's move on to the main point.

The Louisville Film Society is proud to present filmmaker Steve Gebhart, who will be in attendance at the screenings of two of his films tomorrow, Saturday, at the Dreamland Film Center. The first film is

Escalator Over the Hill

. It is a concert movie, featuring a performance of the jazz opera of the same name. Yes – we are familiar with the term “rock opera,” and apparently “jazz opera” is a thing, too. The musical piece has also been described as a “chronotransduction.” It is a film which is rarely screened, so this opportunity is a real treat for fans of music and film alike.

Following at 9:00 is

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Rolling Stones

. It is also a concert film featuring, of course, the Rolling Stones. In 1972, the Stones released their landmark album

Exile on Main St.

This film captures their tour in support of this album, and it is the most complete record of said tour.

Admission is $10 for each individual film, or $15 for the double feature. The Dreamland Film Center is located at 810 E. Market Street. Complete information can be found at the Louisville Film Society website.

About Allan Day

There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
