"FLEEGIX" is a science-fiction film set on Earth, although some of the population have become convinced that they are in fact living on the planet Mars. The film investigates the nature of belief systems which overlap, co-exist, and create conflict in any human society. Its subject is the nature of reality. It takes place in a recognizeable world of parks, parking lots, gas stations and video stores, which makes the episodes stranger and more tangible. It does not create a fantasy world: the extraordinary is mapped onto a recognizable landscape.
The film is inspired by and loosely adapted from a Young Adult novel by Daniel Pinkwater, "Alan Mendolsohn, the Boy From Mars," in which alienated high school students Leonard and Alan escape boredom through developing telepathic powers and learn to travel to other dimensions overlapping their own

Holy people is intense, melodic, experimental (and sometimes mystical) music meets physical clown, Leah Wishcenaw. In addition to being a performer and musician, Wishcenaw is a celebrated comic artist and creator/publisher of Happiness Comix Magazine.

Local comic and film artist will be showing the first two episodes of his surreal, queer science fiction soap opera, "Wronald Wants To Be A Barber.
