showing on february 25
Wargoon Flishe, an animated feature film made in Minneapolis, will screen at the new Bedlam Theatre, on Sunday, February 25th at 7 p.m.
Wargoon Flishe is both the name of the movie and the name of the central heroic character of it. Wargoon is a hero out of ancient myths, but one slightly updated to this age of commerce and mass media. He rises to greatness by virtue of cannibalism and arrogance.
His story is a movie like a cave painting drawn on magazine advertising.
Animator John Akre used a variety of animation techniques to create the movie. He also narrates the film, provides the voices for all the characters, and voices the sound effects.
Bedlam Theatre is located at 1501 S. 6th St., in the West Bank of Minneapolis. It is located just behind the Cedar Riverside LRT station.
