Solo Trans + A Day at the Gallery

Friday, April 17 - Wednesday, April 22, 2015

SOLO TRANS (1984, Hal Ashby, 60 min.)

Directed by Hal Ashby, this highly lauded 1983 Neil Young concert film has only seen limited release on LaserDisc.

Presented as an episode of Trans TV, the show finds Neil Young at an interesting artistic crossroads, which is illustrated by an opening solo acoustic set that moves into a song cycle of his experimental and electronic Trans period, followed with a closing set of rockabilly music accompanied by Neil’s band The Shocking Pinks.

“Neil is in Kraftwerk meets Gene Vincent and Bo Diddley mode with some of the bits feeling downright Daft Punkian… an entertaining document of Young at his most whacked-out, unpredictable, contrarian and prophetic.” – Dangerous Minds

Screening with: A DAY AT THE GALLERY (2012, Bernard Shakey, 40 min.)

Bernard Shakey’s silent film made in 2012. A book author visits a gallery featuring the works of Shepard Fairey and haggles with the owner over purchasing paintings for a book. As they move about the gallery, the paintings come to life and tell a story of their own. “An astonishing, unprecedented and amazing 40 minute film.” – Neil Young News
