South Side Projections returns to the Co-Prosperity Sphere after a winter hiatus with We Grew Up Here (2014, 86 min., video projection), a locally produced film starring members of the now-defunct band Paper Thick Walls. An official selection at the 2014 Chicago International Movies & Music Festival, it’s the story of a musician, struggling to cope with his split from his lover and muse, who begins to suspect that his past is being erased. As videos and songs Liam (Eric Michaels) and Lauren (Kate Schell) recorded together disappear from tapes, and mutual friends deny they know him, Liam hits the road on a desperate journey to prove to himself and everyone else that he’s not insane—that the life that they built together, and that he threw away, was real.
Director Kevin Pickman and costar Kate Schell will be in attendance for a Q&A, and as a special treat, Kate will perform a solo set after the film.
