Kodak Lecture Series does it again

I was planning on writing all about this tomorrow after the lecture, but realizing how cruel it would be to know about this and let anyone miss out, I decided tonight is the night to do it.

Tomorrow (April 1st), as part of the totally FREE Kodak Lecture Series at Ryerson U, Harmony Korine will be appearing 'in conversation with Bruce LaBruce'. In case there's any memory lapse, Korine is the acclaimed screenwriter behind Larry Clark's, Kids, the director of Gummo, and writer of books like A Crack Up and Race Riots.

I could also go on to name a series of art books, music videos, docs, and other mixed media Korine has had a hand in, but faster than I can try to remember all the titles (and fail) you can just go on and google 'em yourself. You might want to look up his collaborations with David Blaine, Sonic Youth and Bjork too. Some weird and crazy stuff.

What makes this lecture a little different is that it isn't a plain old lecture (possibly supported by some powerpoint visuals or whatnot) at all. Korine will be chatting with Bruce LaBruce.

LaBruce is a Toronto-based photographer and filmmaker. His work has appeared in mags like Vice to rags like the National Post. He's also an accomplished filmmaker so there should be plenty of insight to go around.

It all starts at 7:30pm in room L-72 at Ryerson (350 Victoria). Walk in off the Gould & Victoria St entrance.. down the steps and right in front of you. Can't miss it. Get there early too, 'cause it's free and these lectures tend to fill UP.
