Going underground

Chicago film addicts, this week is your lucky week. Starting tomorrow, the Chicago Underground Film Festival kicks off at the Music Box Theater. Including the obligatory stab at the Bush administration (Todd Derow’s Bulldog in the White House), some apathetic yet compelling teenagers (Aaron Katz’s Dance Party USA), love and violence (John Rad’s Dangerous Men), party culture (Jethro Senger’s Headspace), a life in travel (Kevin Henry’s Last Thoughts), relationships in a time of technology (Joe Swanberg’s LOL), music and art (Dietmar Post and Lucia Palacios’ The Monks The Transatlantic Feedback), an Iraqi homecoming (Usama Alshaibi’s Nice Bombs), the history of pinball (Ben Olson’s Ball Saved), the lives of carnivorous plants (Mike Wilder’s The Carnivorous Syndrome in 3D), a trip to the desert (Kate McCabe’s Sabbia), retro gamers (Jeremy Mack’s High Score), and so many more it will make your head spin like those funky swirl things that used to be on screen at the movies before the film started way back when. Runs through August 22 with tickets running in about the $8-15 range.
