Rodney Koeneke on The New Talkies in Portland


If you missed The New Talkies Neo-Benshi event in Portland a couple weeks ago, the next best thing is reading Rodney Koeneke's just-completed series of blogposts on it at Modern Americans.

* David Larsen doing Logan's Run

* Maryrose Larkin doing The Passion of Jeanne D'Arc

* Leo Daedalus and David Abel doing Solaris

* Rodney Koeneke doing Mary Poppins (all he provides us from his own presentation, which he previewed at the Flarf Festival a week earlier, is a picture, but I can tell you that it's an elegaically whimsical treatment involving the lost language of the Etruscans, the perils of speaking for others, and the potential carcinogenic properties of Englishness--and Konrad Steiner has left a nice long discussion in the comment box)

* Cynthia Sailers doing The Passion of Anna

* Kaia Sand doing the home movies of midcentury Oregon machinist William Cheney

* Konrad Steiner doing Minority Report

* Mac McGinnes doing Judex (from a text by Norma Cole)
