Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum presents Forum Lounge: Brent Green, God Builds Like Frank Lloyd Wright
When: 10/04/12, 5 pm Happy Hour; 7 pm Performance

Best known for his darkly humorous stop-motion animated films that touch on themes of love, death, salvation, and the underworld, filmmaker Brent Green performs live with a series of his recent short films. Through performance and live narration, Green presents a stop-motion autobiography of rich, idiosyncratic symbology to an accompaniment of raw Americana music with guest musicians Tim Rutili (Califone) and Mike McGinley (Bitter Tears, Califone).
