Invisible Girlfriend Friday, October 2nd, Noon Bayview Street Cinema
Directed by David Redmon & Ashley Sabin. 70 minutes.
Charles is in love with his invisible girlfriend, Joan of Arc, so he decides to ride his big red bicycle 400 miles from Monroe through Louisiana to find her in a New Orleans bar. Along the way he encounters a farmer, a witch, a tin man, and a man who honors the dead. Working within the tradition of creative non-fiction, "Invisible Girlfriend" is a Southern tale that transcends literal interpretations of images in order to open up rich, loamy textures of humor and drama. The cinematography is startling in its intensity and violent beauty, representing an optical trope that offsets the desperate love that Charles sets off on his journey to find.
