New York based artist and film maker, Andrew H. Shirley is bringing his existential fantasy film, Wastedland 2, to Holland from May 11 – 27! Wastedland 2 makes its Reno debut amid a detritus-strewn, site-specific, immersive film installation transforming the Serva Pool space at Holland into a post-apocalyptic three-dimensional graffiti wonderland. Questions of fate and self will collide with graffiti folk lore through wordplay, sculpture, artifacts, and characters – all centered around thematics from the film- created by Shirley, his actors and members of the notorious Brooklyn based 907 graffiti crew. This environment allows the viewer to enter the psychology of the narrative, to identify and ultimately re-define the way one traditionally engages with film and artwork.
Be sure to come out to the opening on May 11th starting at 6pm with the screening at 7:30pm + local bands Black Zin and Shit Metaphor following the screening at 8pm!!
