Screening: The Films of Cameron Jamie

Tickets may be purchased online or at the door.

Bring a blanket for our outdoor amphitheater! Beer, wine, coffee, and picnic fare will be for sale at the new on-site café, épicerie at The Contemporary. View menu here. Outside food and beverages are also welcome.

Backyard teenage wrestling and a pagan visitation by Krampus beasts are some of the rituals Cameron Jamie explores in his films. Immersing himself in the punk underbelly of myth in contemporary subcultures, Jamie has been called a “backyard anthropologist.”

Grab a picnic and see the artist’s sculpture in The Sorcerer’s Burden before viewing a selection of his films in the amphitheater:

BB (1998-2000), Kranky Klaus (2002-2003), and Massage the History (2007-2009)
