Hello there and happy summer. It’s been a long time since the Flood Tide news page has seen any action! But, there’s some news to share, so here we are. Flood Tide premiered at the Torino Film Festival this past November, and this summer the film will begin screening around the U.S.. Here’s an update on plans for summer and beyond. (if you want to skip to the list of upcoming screenings, click here) Flood Tide will screen at the Brooklyn Museum as part of a night called Submerged Collaborations, happening in and around Swoon’s installation Submerged Motherlands. The installation is breathtaking and transportive. Among its other wonders are the rafts that we took down the Hudson, the Adriatic Sea, and that appear in Flood Tide.
So, we’ve organized this June 12th event that begins with a screening of Flood Tide, followed by a short talk focusing on the community of friends and artists that has grown out of the raft projects. Then, we’ll move upstairs to the Swoon installation for a peformance by the Submerged Motherlands Orchestra featuring Mirah, Marshall LaCount (Dark Dark Dark, XXXPRSNXXX), Jen Goma (People Get Ready) the band North America, Chloe Swantner, and Todd Chandler (me). details: 6:30pm Brooklyn Museum 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn Tickets here Facebook event (please share widely)
On June 18th at 7pm, Flood Tide screens at Northside Festival as part of the DIY Competition program. The film is one of five films in competition. Come out and show some love.

On July 20th the film will screen as part of Mono No Aware’s Connectivity through Cinema series followed by a short conversation between Mono No Aware director Steve Cossman and myself.

For those outside of New York, Flood Tide will be touring starting this fall. Marshall LaCount and I will take the film on the road and we’ll be playing live scores to some new short films I’ve made as well. Dates will be announced over the summer.
On that note, if you’d like host a screening of Flood Tide, go here. Theaters, galleries, living rooms, backyards, rooftops, warehouses, boats…whatever. It’s super easy to book using SMPLMCHN’s online network. You can preview the film, arrange terms, and even download a file for screening.
Lastly, I have a limited number of Flood Tide movie posters available. Painted by artist Michael Gaughan with lettering by Marshall LaCount, the posters are 28″ x 18″ and printed on 100lb uncoated matte paper. They’re beautiful. $35 (including shipping within the U.S.). If you’d like one, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your continued interest and support. It’s been a long haul and I’m excited that the film is finally out in the world.
