Dirty Looks present a screening of three films from the late 1980s by Tom Rhoads, one of the artistic alter egos of filmmaker Luther Price. Before making his infamous film Sodom (1989), Price invented different personae, living these roles in order to execute a breadth of artistic projects. Tom Rhoads marked his first foray into filmmaking. An infantile psyche in the body of an adult, Rhoads was the vessel for some of the artist's most introspective and psychodramatic films. Working in Super 8, Rhoads' projects are visceral explorations of trauma, "home movies from hell," repetitive explosions of personal memory and familial guilt. "A nice guy," Price describes Rhoads as the kind of man, "who would buy you an ice cream cone." Tom Rhoads is dead. Long live Luther Price. The three works to be screened are Green, Mr. Wonderful, and Warm Broth. Filmmaker in attendance.
