Los Angeles-based curator and film preservationist Mark Toscano visits with restored and archival 16mm prints representing an eclectic and audio visually exhilarating array of cinematic psychedelia, spanning musical documentation, abstract animation, freeform optical collage, and all manner of analog experimentation, featuring original soundtracks by Joseph Byrd, Christopher Tree, Rhys Chatham, Carl Stone, Carter Thomas, and more.
