Can't say I'm a fan of the filmmaker, who calls himself "one of the most misunderstood, misquoted and misrepresented talents of the last 25 years." But for those of you who are, he will arrive on Nov. 13.
The official word: Independent Pictures and the Ohio
Independent Film Festival present RRIICCEE, featuring actor/director Vincent Gallo. The event will take place at the Beachland Ballroom Tavern, located at 15711 Waterloo Rd. in Cleveland on Saturday, November 13, 2010 at 8PM. Limited tickets for the event are $15 and can be obtained by calling Beachland Ballroom at 216-383-1124 or by visiting their website at www.beachlandballroom.com
Vincent Gallo is one of this generation's most exciting indie actors and filmmakers. He received critical acclaim for his films "Buffalo 66" "The Brown Bunny" and more recently as the lead in Francis Ford Coppola's 2009 film "Tetro." Born in Buffalo in 1961, Gallo moved to New York City in 1978 and began playing in the experimental music band Gray with artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. Since
then he has had a wildly successful and at times, controversial career as a conceptual and visual artist, filmmaker, musician, race car driver and music collector. . . .
Continues after the jump.
Highly prolific, Gallo is one of the most misunderstood, misquoted and misrepresented talents of the last 25
RRIICCEE is a spontaneous collective between Gallo and two other
musicians - Woody Jackson and Nico Turner - and exhibits the
creation of composition within a live performance. In addition to the performance, Clevelanders will be treated to a special screening of Gallo's four-minute short film, "Honey Bunny" as well as a
selection of short films from the Ohio Independent Film Festival.
For over 17 years, the Ohio Independent Film Festival has shown films
from Cleveland and all over the globe, and since May, 2010 has partnered with Beachland Ballroom for festival screenings and special events . The event with Vincent Gallo aligns perfectly with the Ohio Independent Film Festival to support independent filmmakers by encouraging freedom of expression. Funded in part by Community Shares of Greater Cleveland and Ohio Arts Council, the Ohio Independent Film Festival is programmed entirely through filmmaker submissions.
