Saturday To-Do: 'Arkansas Shorts'




7 p.m., Malco Theater. $7

After two years of sell-out screenings at Hot Springs' gorgeous, historic Malco Theater, "Arkansas Shorts" is set to return for its fourth year, showcasing music videos, experimental films, documentaries and narrative shorts from the state's filmmakers. Highlights include "Breathturn," a music video by Marc Byrd for his celebrated ambient band, Hammock; "Ces Jours" by Valley of the Vapors organizer (and former frontman of ska heroes The Blue Meanies) Bill Solleder and local painter Michael Shaeffer; the amazingly titled "North Korea Taking the Speed Boats" from author J. Lee; "Princess Bling Bling and the Art Knight" from Anna Wingfield and her 5th grade Art Club, and "cinePLOSION!," a live multi-video installation by Dan Anderson, experimental filmmaker and director of the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival. All proceeds from the night's celebration of cinema go to Valley of the Vapors, the local non-profit arts organization.
