Indy and New Yorkey

The New York Film Salon kicks off a monthly series of independent movies produced or directed by New York State-based filmmakers and presented as a networking vehicle for filmmakers, distributors, actors, students, and the public. The screenings take place on the second Tue. of each month at the Medicine Show Theatre, 549 W. 52nd St. On Jun. 14, 7 p.m., NYFS screens David Finkelstein’s “Recording Device” (25 mins.), a poetic exploration of the ways we store our memories. The film is a collage of words, images, and music demonstrating how we scratch and etch our impressions onto paper, film, vinyl, and other media, shaping our view of the world. This journey through an interior landscape is filled with snakes, saxophones, and pyramids. Also screened is “Goodbye Apathy,” a 30-min. film from Osaretin Omo, a Los Angeles-born daughter of Nigerian immigrants who attended SUNY’s University at Albany. The film is a montage of a trouble relationship between a young Latino couple that culminates in tragedy during an impulsive moment. Admission is $10 at TicketRiver.com/event/20260.
