Hi everyone - We'll be getting together this Sunday, April 1, at 3pm to watch and discuss a short film based upon Derek Webb's music, "Feedback" - the film is called "Self-Sabotage" and you can see some info about it here: http://derekwebb.com/store/feedback Kellye and I will host at our house (2406 Altenburg Ct Grove City, 43123). We will have coffee and other drinks and maybe a few small snacks but no meal to share. We'll try to finish around 5 pm. Hope to see everyone! Jesse
More about the film:
Self-Sabotage: the deliberate subversion of oneself. Destructive or obstructive action that hinders the person who acts.
See also: the Lord's Prayer.
The Lord's Prayer is inherently violent towards the one who prays it.
Self-Sabotage is an exploration of the Lord's Prayer based on and inspired by Derek Webb's electronic all instrumental album 'Feedback'. It follows six characters in a narrative with no words - only the music to parallel the stories.This film has come to pick a fight, and any viewing that fails to recognize that may put the viewer at risk in one way or another. Self-Sabotage rests firmly amidst the tension between the prayed and the praying; the single-minded character and vision of the Lord's prayer serves as the sub-text through which we enter into the lives of its characters. Their lives, like moving icons, open windows into the great mystery of communion through self-dethroning sabotage.
