About the filmmaker:
Working in video, painting, and cyanotype, Indianapolis artist Casey Roberts creates contemplative tableaux-like depictions of the tense dichotomy between mankind and the natural world. His esoteric visual fantasies conceal an imaginative playfulness under a veil of mystery. The Barrick is screening three of Robert's short films:
Sometimes I Dream of Myself as Two People (2015)
Run time: 19:30
A man searching the desert, mining for answers.
The Bird Sessions (2016)
Run time: 9:51
A parable, wherein a psychiatrist conducts a consultation in the middle of a forest.
I Think I Know What the Problem Is (2012)
Run time: 18:47
A dream-like tale of a man who abandons his routine to live as an animal in the forest, as he contemplates his life, hopes, and creative endeavors.
