Will Goss, director of the excellent Magenta’s Caress series, is bringing his latest film to Oxford on January 31st.  The new movie “Clarksdale” is an adaptation of the Russian novel “Petersburg” by Andrei Bely. The screening will be held at 7:30 p.m. on the Ole Miss campus at Barnard Observatory.

Here’s a quick synopsis of the film: Conspiracy.  Terror.  Boston Dean, an impressionable university student, has gotten entangled with a revolutionary terrorist organization, which plans to assassinate a high government official with a time bomb.  The twist: the high government official happens to be Boston’s father, and that Boston himself is in charge of planting the bomb.  It is duly delivered to him, the clock mechanism is set to explode within 24 hours, and… But we must not give away the ending.  Visually daring and ominously absurd, “Clarksdale” will push you OFF the edge of your seat.  It’s that suspenseful.


Will Goss is also the brains behind one of our favorite bands, PLUME, which will have a song on our upcoming Record Store Day compilation.  Stay tuned for more info regarding that release…
