Light + Sound Machine Presents... FOR THE PLASMA
Directors Bingham Bryant & Kyle Molzan in person for introduction and Q&A
A digital-pastoral drama of friendship, landscape and technology, "For the Plasma" begins as the story of two young women (Anabelle LeMieux and Rosalie Lowe) employed as forest-fire lookouts in Northern Maine, and ends in a hundred places at once. Along the way, the girls make financial predictions based on surveillance footage of the surrounding forest, the local lighthouse keeper and a pair of unusual investors interrupt their solitude, and a dreamlike portrait of small town America and contemporary life is revealed. "For the Plasma" is a film of minimal means but ambition, shot in Super 16mm and 4:3 with a small cast and crew, and scored by the great Japanese experimental composer, Keiichi Suzuki.
"[A] most beguiling, unclassifiable entry… a modest project of big ideas: about solitude, collaboration, conspiracy, magical thinking.” - ARTFORUM
