There are filmmakers and artists that claim to be independent, but in truth, haven’t strayed very far outside the pale of Hollywood. But Crispin Hellion Glover is the real deal – fiercely independent, wildly creative, and uncompromising in his desire to bring his creations directly to the audience.
Alamo Drafthouse Littleton is proud and excited to be hosting Glover for his one-man show on Thursday, June 20 at 7:00 and Friday, June 21 at 7:00. Over the course of two nights, Glover will perform CRISPIN GLOVER’S BIG SLIDE SHOW, a series of images drawn from his published novels, and dramatically narrated by Glover himself. This slideshow is presented in two parts, and while you can choose to attend just one, we highly recommend attending both performances in order to experience the show as he has designed it.
After the slideshow, he will screen his visionary and wildly acclaimed films in 35mm. On Thursday, June 20, Glover will show IT IS FINE! EVERYTHING IS FINE. Penned and acted by Steven C. Stewart, it’s an uncompromising tale of sexual frustration and fulfillment, and the macabre turns it can take.
On Friday, June 21, he will screen WHAT IS IT?, a surreal journey that offers no easy answers, and plenty of eerie imagery. Glover describes it as “the adventures of a young man whose principal interests are snails, salt, a pipe and how to get home as tormented by an hubristic racist inner psyche,” but he also urges viewers to make their own interpretations.
Neither film is available on DVD, and are screened only when, where, and how Glover chooses, and always accompanied by him. This is truly the kind of rare and visceral experience cinephiles dream of.
After the slideshow and the film, Glover will hold a Q&A and a booksigning. We will have Glover’s books available for purchase, but there is no additional charge to obtain a photo or have a book signed. There’s no cut off time, and everyone who wants a moment with Mr. Glover will have an opportunity. For more information on Mr. Glover, his books, and his show, please visit his official website.
