“The Terrestrials,” Directed by filmmaker Rene Daalder, is a feature-length scifi documentary that follows 6 students of UC Santa Cruz as they digitize Tim’s video archives. The film will be premiering immediately following the reception, at 9pm, just a few blocks away from the gallery, at Obscura Digital:

(The party starts at 9:30 — feel free to just stay over for the party after the reception, if you don’t feel like going to the movie.)
