A special screening of a standout from the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival.
Filmmakers Timothy Marrinan and Richard Dewey examine the life and work of the extraordinary performance artist Chris Burden. Burden ensured his place in art history in 1971 with a series of often-dangerous and stomach-churning performances. After having himself shot, locked up in a locker for five days, electrocuted, and crucified on the back of a VW bug, Burden reinvented himself as the creator of mesmerizing installations and sculptures, including a suspended gigantic flywheel that seemingly spins on its own, and an assemblage of antique streetlights rewired for solar energy and illuminated outside the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
