John CageIf, like me, you’re a San Franciscan who’d rather have your mind blown than numbed on a Monday night, Other Minds is hoping you’ll turn out for a benefit movie screening this coming Monday, June 15th.

The film, which bears the politicially-incorrect title The Revenge of the Dead Indians: In Memoriam John Cage, is neither a documentary nor a feature, but it’s scored with John Cage’s music, plus found audio landscapes.  Encounters with market vendors and street cleaners mix in with Cage tributes from Frank Zappa, Noam Chomsky, Yoko Ono, Frank Gehry, Ellsworth Kelly,  and Merce Cunningham, directed by Henning Loehner.

The event starts at 6:00 p.m. with a reception (complimentary drinks and hors d’oeuvres included), and moves on to the screening at 7:30 p.m. at the Sundance Kabuki Cinemas, 1881 Post Street, San Francisco. Tickets are $15.00, $25.00, and $50.00, and all admissions benefit Other Minds.
