Michael Walsh curates All Souls Night, a Pop-up Cinema at Bunnell Street Arts Center at 8pm.

Expect to see surprising and bizarre short films interspersed with curious performances by special guests Mandy Bernard, Jacques Longpre, Quentin Simeon, Susannah Webster.
“It has been challenging for many to lose the energy and intimacy of live performance and film in recent years. There is so much amazing archival and obscure film I’m eager to juxtapose and highlight with Homer’s expressive performers.” – Michael Walsh
