The Farnsworth Art Museum and The Strand Theatre will present the second 2013 showing of the international short film series, Rockland Shorts on Friday, April 5. Entitled “The Superconscious”— transcending human or normal consciousness, the screening will take place at The Strand Theatre, 345 Main Street in Rockland, at 8 p.m. After the showing, the audience is invited to attend an after-event hosted by the Farnsworth’s newest membership group The Collective. The after-event will take place in the museum’s Morehouse wing. Begun in 2012, Rockland Shorts is an ongoing series of short creative films that strive to show contemporary independent film productions from around the world. These films help to define the digital generation without restriction to culture, format, formula or genre. This evening will include an hour of short art films, followed by interviews with directors present in The Strand or those who will appear via Skype.
