Krannert Art Museum and the School of Art + Design Visitor Series present Kairos Dirt and the Errant Vacuum (2017), a screening and discussion with the film’s director Madsen Minax. The run time for the film is 90 minutes; discussion will follow.

Kairos Dirt & the Errant Vacuum follows the strange happenings of two middle school lunch ladies, an androgynous student, a lesbian hospice provider, a grieving ministry worker, a mystical mortician, and an astrologer/life coach/phone sex operator. Through a series of collective dreams an otherworldly being invades the characters’ dream spaces, revealing an alternate realm of wanton, subconscious desires. Amid the post- industrial decay of the American south, interconnected relationships unfold in unusual and fantastical landscapes as television monitors, radio frequencies, orifices and dreams all become portals to access this alternate dimension of carnality and desire.
