August 9, 2018 Thursday 8pm (doors open 7:30) The Brother Side of the Wake test screening 
at ECHO PARK FILM CENTER 1200 N. Alvarado St, LA, CA 90026 213-484-8846, $5  

The Brother Side of the Wake (BroSide) is Gerry Fialka's experimental documentary with Venice, California, as its main character. A remake of the soon-to-be-released Orson Welles film The Other Side of the Wind, it evokes the rascality of the Our Gang comedies, and it probes the cliché: "Is the journey more important than the destination?" 

BroSide wakes up the psychic effects of direct cinema, abstract animation, and films about films. It was shot in various formats including Super 8mm, Pixelvision, digital video, cell phone and hand-painted celluloid. Now in its third test screening, BroSide will involve the audience in call-and-responses, much like a community, out-loud reading of James Joyce's Finnegans WakeBroSide can empower the audience to go out, have fun, and do their own thing. 

"Film historian Fialka's first feature is a faux faux 'lemon' of a movie. His lifelong studies has enabled him to find the 'loopholes' leaking out of the mainstream. BroSide is not released. It has escaped." - Hank Rosenfeld, author/folk journalist
