Change to program for FA Screening at Echo Park Film Center!

Hey All,

Michael Frost has gotten a film gig in Atlanta (hooray!), so we will see him and his film "Lana Turner Overdrive" at the next screening in May. Instead we will be screening James Blagden's "Dock Ellis and The LSD No-No". See details below and full program details here: http://filmmakersalliance.org/EPFC.html

See you there!

Dock Ellis & The LSD No-No
by James Blagden
4 min. 32 sec.
In celebration of the greatest athletic achievement by a man on a psychedelic journey, No Mas presents the animated tale of Dock Ellis' legendary LSD no-hitter. The piece's s unorthodox origins are nearly as compelling as the short film itself. The film combines the former Pittsburgh Pirate's own account of the 1970 no-hitter he pitched while high on LSD with Blagden's totally original visual style. The resulting animated short has been hailed as, among other things, among the greatest baseball films ever.
