Louisville Film Society and the Kentucky Center for the Arts will present the world premiere of “Burn To Shine 4: Louisville”? on May 22 at the Bomhard.
Directed by Christoph Green and co-produced by Brendan Canty of Fugazi, the series films bands performing in soon-to-be razed houses. Louisville’s chapter was shot in November 2005 in the strange netherworld between Clarksville and Jeffersonville, says William Benton, whose band Lucky Pineapple was filmed along with Will Oldham, Dead Child, Shipping News, Liberation Prophecy, Ultra Pulverize, The Commonwealth and others.
A Q&A follows the 7 p.m. screening with Brendan Canty and Benton, as well as on-site performances from Rachel Grimes, Bonnie “Prince” Billy & The Cairo Gang and Liberation Prophecy. Tickets are $20 and available by calling 584-7777 or online at www.kentuckycenter.org. The event doubles as a benefit for Jason Noble.
