mud stencils at True/False

March 7, 2012

The True/False film festival hit year nine this year and as always it showcases exceptional documentary films in numerous venues around downtown Columbia and the University of Missouri. The festival is a gem – it is unpretentious, set in a great college town, and showcases films from directors around the world, from those with Oscar Awards to those screening their first documentary film. Yet, films are just part of the equation. T/F also features numerous music shows, the “buskers last stand”, and bands playing before each screening and often in the lobby of each venue. You know you’ve landed somewhere special when Dark, Dark, Dark is the opening music for a screening with 1700 people in the audience. More so, you know the T/F team is special when they also make the festival a home for visual artists. This year, Jesse Graves and I did a mud stencil project for the second year in a row. Jesse created an amazing mud-mural of bees and Jesse and I put up a series of stencils that revolved around the festivals theme of “influencing machines.”
