The screening will also include work by Jason Halprin, David Monahan, Kelly Sears, and Michael Sirianni plus the amazing shadow puppet performance The Ballad of Lula del Ray by Julia Miller.

The gallery will display artwork by Craig Blakeman, Joe Miller and Bessoff’s sets and storyboards from “Rider Rider’s Lament”.

The tragic-comic “Red Rider’s Lament” employs vintage plastic cowboys and construction paper sets to explore the enactment of masculinity in the Old West. The Rider enters the fold just as the West’s dust is settling. His haphazard wanderings cause him to confront manifest destiny and the changes it renders to the landscape and its inhabitants. Featuring music by Josh Dumas, Keith Kusterer, Tom McGettrick, Tom Santiago, and Sally Timms.

    Hey Jeremy,

    I saw your film “Red Rider’s Lament” at the Hardacre Film Festival and it was my favorite. How can I get a copy?
