Unexposed: The Smyth Brothers 

When: Mon., April 27 2015




THE CARRACK MODERN ART—In a recent story previewing the odder offerings at the Full Frame Festival, we spoke with brothers Brendan and Jeremy Smyth, who make experimental documentaries with a global perspective as Blacksmyth Films. Though the twins have hosted the avant-garde film series Unexposed in Durham for more than a year now, they have yet to give a major screening of their own works. They finally set that right in the latest Unexposed, which features two of their 16mm films in a program called "Creative Destruction," sponsored by Fullsteam Brewery. Por Dinero, shot in Mexico and Florida, uses ancient Mayan quotes to mortar together a look at the life of an undocumented Mexican immigrant. Rice for Sale is an abstract rhapsody, in 10 wordless vignettes, on Bali's mythological history. It's a great chance, in an accessible venue, to check out the itinerant film series if you haven't yet. And while you're at The Carrack, you can take a look at Honey Cult Creek Camp, an immersive summer camp-style installation by Naomi Elizabeth that has its opening reception at 7 p.m. April 24 and runs through May 2. 8:30 p.m., free, 111 W. Parrish St., Durham, 352-318-5872,
