Special thanks to Bryan VanCampen and The Ithaca Times for covering tomorrow’s opening and screening.

An excerpt from the article:

“An alternative exhibition space calling itself station923, located at 923 East Shore Dr., will host an opening reception for “Flood/Light,” new work by Lindsey Glover, at 5-8 p.m. Thursday, June 23, followed by a fireside film screening hosted by Hugues Barbier, programmer at the Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival. You might remember Barbier from a series of Cornell Cinema screenings of the best newer genre films, spiky, odd goodies like “Stake Land” and “Rubber.”

I’m not familiar with Glover’s work, but I sure know the movie Barbier has selected for the evening: Mario Bava’s”Danger: Diabolik” (1968), which feels like a European riposte to the Adam West “Batman” TV series, and my favorite Bava film.

John Phillip Law plays a too-cool-for-school terrorist in a comic-book movie based on Diabolik, a popular Italian comic strip character. Bava’s flick boasts a zingy score by Ennio Morricone and is worth studying by FX junkies; it’s a master class in matte paintings, forced perspective and foreground miniatures. Plus, you and you pals can argue who directed the first 360-degree joint pass. Was it Bava or Roger Corman’s “The Trip”?
