TERRY WILSON
the celebrated author of "Dreams of Green Base", "'D' Train", "Perilous Passage" and co-author of "Here To Go" with Brion Gysin will read from his works

'Take the D-train for a mind bending mega trip into interior space. D for Desire? Perhaps, but this is no streetcar to the suburbs of the spirit and back. This D-train rushes through a long night of the soul past Danger and Despair to come to ultimate Delight. This is not a package tour but a guide for travellers off the beaten track' - Brion Gysin



a limited number of first edition copies of D-Train will be available for purchase which the Author will sign, at the beginning of the evening

LOUISE LANDES LEVI
inter-dimensional guru-punk poet will read from her works + play sarangi

'Louise Landis-Levi’s pure intentions, and her uncompromising, heroic effort to realize the true nature of mind, makes her poems a continuous stream of wisdom' — John Giorno

live music with the film "Ayahuasca, the universe in others words" by PHILIPPE BAUMONT, a travel described in the last chapter of Terry Wilson's book "Perilous Passage".

FELIPE WALLER



Felipe Waller began filming super 8 animations and videos in 2003. It all started after he witnessed Martha Colburn execute her eye-popping animating techniques. Since then he has experimented with different techniques, most of them rooted in an analogue approach. Experimental filmmaking has enriched his main activity - musical composition.

JAAP PIETERS



Jaap Pieters grew up in Almelo and is known as "The Eye of Amsterdam". Since 1977 Jaap Pieters has been living in Amsterdam and has been engaged in photography and film since the 1980s. All of his films are shot on the - soon to be lost format -Super8. For a few years now Pieters has been setting up exhibitions in the field of installations where film and photography share equal parts. In his films Jaap Pieters is interested in the boundary between film and photography. To bring photographs to life so that the viewer will experience the field of tension between moving and still images and the extent to which the two are connected. His films are made with a minimal use of equipment and minimal manipulation. Pieters' film programmes include portraits of homeless people, who have deeply touched the filmmaker with their individualism, and also his so-called “abstract” films, in which he has mostly shot simple movements detached from a context exploring meaning and function.

She has made over forty films since 1994 and has also been fervently involved in playing music.

JEFFREY BABCOCK

Jeffrey Babcock is a filmmaker, performance artist, writer, film programmer and cultural activist. He studied cinema under film-theorist David Bordwell and with experimental filmmaker Stan Brakhage. Since 1984 he has travelled extensively and mystically as a performance artist in Europe and many other countries including Russia, Mongolia and Japan. Many of the performances dealt with the theme of anti-censorship. During the 1990s he collaborated with filmmaker Ian Kerkhof in creating an eccentric array of transgressive films for the Dutch cinemas and television. Around the turn of the century Jeffrey shifted towards writing books (including THE CORPSE-GRINDERS OF BERLIN published by Pine Slopes press) and conducting interviews with film directors such as Kenneth Anger. Because of the sad state of cinema culture in Amsterdam, in recent years he has become an underground cinema activist, helping to create a circuit of alternative cinemas in which he gives introductions that set films in a biographical, historical, aesthetic or philosophical context. He is a programmer at about seven underground cinemas at the moment. Together with Polish graphic artist Agata Winska he also published a book called SCREENING AS AN IDEOLOGY (2011).
