Shapeshifters Cinema presents a short program of film and performance that aims to open the door to psychic exploration and universal consciousness. The program will begin with a rare screening of Ira Cohens restored film The Invasion of the Thunderbolt Pagoda (1968) that captures the height of the psychedelic era with costumed characters performing altered-state rituals while floating in a sea of mylar refractions. Then, Ben Russells Trypps #7 (Badlands) (2010) invites the audience on an intimate psychedelic journey to explore the romantic sublime, phenomenological experience, and secular spiritualism. Following the films, Oaklands own Church of Color and Light will perform Apollo's Lore, a reflection on the nuances of solitude during the pandemic and the mythical Apollo, who is both the cause and cure of plagues. The evening concludes with a live performance by Andy Puls, who will be descending from his mountain lair with the homemade audio and light sequencer and synthesizer, Melody Oracle, to play a new set from his REALMRIDER series.
