Polari could not be more excited to bring Austin a FREE night dedicated to the talent and tenacity of Bug Davidson! Davidson is this year’s Polari Filmmaker Assistance Program recipient and we will be revealing next year’s recipient at this event (you can read about the program here). http://www.polarifest.com/polari-presents-a-bug-davidson-retrospective-and-the-world-premiere-of-nothing-like-ivanhoe-on-august-13th/ The evening will include a retrospective of Davidson’s boldly evocative and mischievously imaginative films and will culminate in the World Premiere of Davidson’s newest sparkler, NOTHING LIKE IVANHOE! NOTHING LIKE IVANHOE stabs at magical realism with a queer sound. Using genre tools and handmade props this short rejects the redundancy of story in our collective cinematic past to emphasize what many in the contemporary audience see as an exhausted narrative. A coming out story, a love story, a hero story; perhaps these things are IVANHOE.
