PLASTER CASTER, the
documentary, endows audiences with an intimate portrait of legendary
artist and groupie, Cynthia Plaster Caster, of world renown for plaster-casting
the penises of rock and roll's finest, including, most notoriously,
Jimi Hendrix. In addition to providing a history of Cynthia's pursuits,
the film documents the castings of two musicians, one shy, the other
extroverted; also highlighted are the maddening preparations for her
first gallery show in New York city. The film features candid interviews
from rock stars, most of whom she has cast over the years (Noel Redding
of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Jello Biafra of The Dead Kennedys, Jon
Langford of the Mekons, and Wayne Kramer of the MC5 to name just a few).
PLASTER CASTER goes beyond the mythology and asks the penetrating question
"Is this really art?" Featuring the music of The Aluminum Group, The
Demolition Doll Rods, 5ive Style, The Make-Up and Frank Zappa and the
Mothers of Invention. Featuring appearances -- with cock and without
-- by 5ive Style, Ian Svenonius, Camille Paglia, Wayne "the Wee One"
Kramer, Chris Connelly of Revolting Cocks, Momus, Eric Burdon, Jello
Biafra, Pete Shelly, the Demolition Doll Rods, Noel Redding, Pamela
Des Barres, L7, Jon Langford, and many others.

Gibson: No Maps for
Mark Neale, 2000,
The man who coined
the term cyberspace is a complex figure with an unusual position in
the modern technological revolution. William Gibsons visions of things
to come as explored in his groundbreaking science fiction novels didnt
simply predict the futurethey actually caused it to be invented to
his imagined specifications. This film provides sharp insight into
one of the great intellects of our era, through extensive conversations
conducted while traveling in the back of a limo. The films hyperkinetic
editing and expressive imagery act as vivid illustration and counterpoint
to Gibsons sage observations about his own life, technology, drugs,
and writing. Includes appearances by Bono and the Edge from U2, and
fellow authors Bruce Sterling and Jack Womack.
