OtherFilm presents an evening of films by iconic Boston-based experimental filmmaker, Luther Price. For nearly two decades, Price’s works have been presented at venues such as Centre Pompidou, Paris, MoMA, New York, Whitney Museum, New York. The screening program, Is It the Truth, will be followed by a Q&A with Price.

”In the struggle for comfort we seek gold while our hearts bleed……………this is not new …..it’s just what we do……but the flies and maggots ……..they always come……..they find you…..we are the food and this earth is our dust………….we live in a grave yard ………this is our playground…………where we struggle for our comfort…….where we plan and map out our days…….minute by minute………….as we consume…….we struggle for comfort……………and death ,…perhaps a beautiful thing ……a silent whisper…………….but we don’t want to know about that…………so we sleep but we don’t wonder about that either …………we wake and continue the path for the struggle of comfort…………….and tease our selves into believing that everything will be just fine…….but the dust grows heavy…………………and a hallow kiss for those departed……………..a hunger moves in while pain and sadness becomes relaxed and brief…………………the flesh remains for now but is it the truth……………………..”  Luther Price……..16 May 2014
