Weird Sinus

Share on Nextdoor
In his feature-film debut Go Down Death, filmmaker Aaron Schimberg follows in the footsteps of directors Luis Bunuel, David Lynch and Guy Maddin by treading boldly into the corner, then walking straight up the wall, across the ceiling and out the window. Adapted from the writings of fictitious folklorist Jonathan Mallory Sinus (whose complete body of work comes in at just six pages), and filmed entirely in 16mm black and white, Go Down Death follows a grave-digging child and a motley crew of verbose, anecdote-spouting soldiers, prostitutes and con men through a series of macabre vignettes that the viewer may or may not assemble into a cohesive whole. Go Down Death screens at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Tuesday (July 3 through 8) in Moore Auditorium on Webster University's campus (470 East Lockwood Avenue; 314-968-7487 or www.webster.edu/filmseries) as part of the Webster University Film Series. Admission is $4 to $6.
July 3-8, 7:30 p.m., 2014
