WOW Hall sets program
of experimental films
`Truck Stop Still Lifes,' a multimedia program featuring films by Bill Brown, will be presented at 8:30 p.m. today at the WOW Hall, 291 W. Eighth Ave.
The Lubbock, Texas-based Brown will be available to talk about his work, which covers such themes as what it means to be native to a place and community history. His previous films have explored the dismantling of nuclear missile sites in North Dakota and the sometimes violent rivalry between French separatists and English speakers in Canada.
The evening will open with a 20-minute collection of shorts by Stephanie Gray, who often explores feminist, lesbian and class issues. And local media artists Jesse Garlick and Marc Moscato will show their film-and-slides compilation on the aspirations of those living in Eugene apartment complexes.
San Francisco's Cassiotone for the Painfully Alone will provide musical accompaniment to the films. Admission is $5.

`The Creature From the Black Lagoon' is back in the water - and in 3-D - at the Bijou Art Cinemas, 492 E. 13th Ave., part of a reinstituted late-night series.
