Co-Laboratory Films + Local Shorts
Closing night 2014 launches three new films from our Co-Laboratory along with a full program of local shorts, demonstrating the curious nature of Bay Area artists as they tinker with technology, collaborate with musicians, dance with tiny animals, with mannequins, and with the city itself.
Followed by Q & A, moderated by Chris Mason Johnson, along with a closing reception.
