Xander Marro (American b. 1975) is a fake scientist/olde style tinker residing at the dirt palace; a feminist cupcake encrusted netherworld located along the dioxin filled banks of the Woonasquatucket river (which is to say in Providence, RI USA). From this post she makes movies, puppet shows, prints and phone calls. Her adventures underground have included curating the "Movies with Live Soundtracks" film series and performing in various theatrick/musical formats as one of the variety of her alter egos (Madame Von Temper Tantrum, Lady Long Arms, Lil Blood-n-Guts, Madame Von Malt Liquor etc.) Of recent days she has gotten herself deep into the wild world of community organizing around neighborhood social justice and human rights issues. Marro will present a collection of short movies made over 15 years in Providence RI. Mostly made on 16mm film, sometimes narrative the program's common themes include : DIY living quarters, puppeteer frontiers, too many cats, winter, witches, wishes, silkscreen explosions, portable cooking stoves, zine libraries, drum kits, fairy tales, cut paper, trinkets stored in drawers, the quest for true love, the junk of this material world, alchemy/regular chemistry, the magic of unlikely alliances, and the spirits of the night.
