If an experimental film that's "a Norse-inspired, music-filled mini-epic without dialogue, in which a crashing car opens a gateway into three parallel worlds and time periods, all linked by a mythological quest" sounds like your cup of tea, well, you're off my Christmas card list, but you might want to get down to the Coolidge Corner in Brookline on Oct. 21 at 8 p.m. to see Melissa Auf der Maur.
The former bassist for Hole and Smashing Pumpkins - and no doubt witness to years of Courtney Love-Billy Corgan rock'n'roll melodramas - will be screening her 28-minute HD fantasy film "Out of Our Minds (OOOM)," which is part of "a conceptual multimedia project that includes her 2010 solo album of the same name and a comic book." Needless to say, she also stars in the movie, which supposedly blew some minds at Sundance this year. Afterwards she'll take questions and then rock the house.
"I feel that we need to take time to travel out of our full-time order machine, to the other side of ourselves more often," Auf der Maur says in the press release. "The realm of the heart is enriching as it usually involves love, music, and poetry, but also because it can be a fantastical journey into the subconscious. In this film, the use of music rather than dialogue and iconic character defined solely by actions was the key in telling a story that speaks to our emotions, not the rational mind."
Tixt are $15 general admission ($12 for Coolidge members and students) at www.coolidge.org or the box office.
