Inspired by the Walker’s exhibition Ordinary Pictures, our 38th Summer Music & Movies presents a selection of films that cleverly and comedically explore a world immersed in television, magazines, and constant documentation. Music begins at 7 pm; movies begin at dusk (approximately 8:45 pm). In case of rain, this will move to the McGuire Theater in the Walker.

The evening opens with sugar, spice, and a kick in the teeth by Bruise Violet, City Pages Best New Band 2016.

About Big Cats
Best known as an in-demand hip hop producer and DJ, Big Cats (Spencer Wirth-Davis) makes experimental instrumental music that draws from classical, hip hop, and jazz. Expect a newly composed and richly cinematic score with his full ensemble for the 1929 Russian classic film Man with a Movie Camera by “The preeminent beatmaker in the Twin Cities.” (89.3 The Current).

About Man with a Movie Camera

An avant-garde masterpiece of the silent era, Man with a Movie Camera is also a seminal depiction of photographic ubiquity, imagining the cameraman as an integral fixture of industrial Russia. A key progenitor of avant-garde cinema, Vertov created the film as a work of “absolute kinography” and developed a now-renowned kinetic editing style. The resulting film which weds man and machine in a euphoric celebration of technological advancement remains a striking modernist triumph. 1929, 16mm transferred to video, drawn from the Ruben/Bentson Moving Image Collection, 68 minutes.

Summer Music & Movies is presented by the Walker Art Center in partnership with the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board.
