Another month and lo and behold another string of rejections. Though I’m doing my best to remain optimistic, I’m resigned to the fact that Robert on his Lunch Break won’t play in any festivals of note at any point in the foreseeable future.

But instead of succumbing to apathy, I’ve grown restless, so I’ve decided to bite the bullet and arrange my own screening…

On the night of Friday, August 13th, at Woodland Pattern in Milwaukee, Robert on his Lunch Break will be shown along with three other films of mine (Ped; the always-good-for-a-laugh Self-important Empirical Film #3, with Voice-over; and the short, kinetic concert film Fugazi’s Last Stop in Wisconsin).

This will be my first official solo show.

Here is the poster I made last night:

It’s not going to win any awards, but it gets the job done. What I like most about this poster is that it eschews the use of one dominant, central image in favor of showing the film’s four main characters, each relegated to his or her own aesthetic reality–the poster, like the film itself, conveys the chasms between different subjectivities.
