Getting Up Guide: DC Shorts and Philip Glass
What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Thursday:
DC Shorts Film Festival 2010
If sitting through a week-long documentary film series -- such as AFI's Silverdocs each June -- puts you to sleep, D.C.'s short-film showcase might be more suited to your attention span. Ninety-seven films, each less than 24 minutes, will be screened in nine rotating showcases at Landmark's E Street Cinema and the U.S. Navy Memorial Theater through Sept. 16.
An Evening With Philip Glass
From his work with David Bowie and Twyla Tharp to more cerebral geniuses such as Allen Ginsberg and Woody Allen, composer Philip Glass has proved that musical inspiration isn't bound to the stage, screen, page or, as his collaborations with painter Chuck Close demonstrate, gallery walls. Glass discusses his life and career in conjunction with "Chuck Close Prints: Processes and Collaboration," which closes Sept. 26.
Small Press Book Expo Event
Artists and cartoonists Richard Thompson, author of the new collection "Cul de Sac Golden Treasury: A Keepsake Garland of Classics," and Keith Knight, author of "The Knight Life: 'Chivalry Ain't Dead,' "discuss their comic craft. A book signing follows in advance of this weekend's Small Press Expo.
