About the Screening
Peyton Evans Artist in Residence (PEAR) Abrahams shares a selected body of film work starting with a 67-minute feature and three short films, followed by a talk and discussion. An award-winning documentary filmmaker, commercial director, and lapsed South Floridian, Abrahams is no stranger to off-kilter characters, bizarre history or mysterious places—all of which make appearances in his films.
The main theme, explored in the shorts collection, is the ethics of profiling people and subcultures that are fringe and controversial. Abrahams posits that societal outsiders and extreme experiencers, regardless of the veracity of their claims, can be a window into the workings of consciousness, and a bridge to heal ideological divides.
About the Filmmaker
Brad Abrahams is a documentary filmmaker and commercial director from Toronto, Canada, now in Austin, TX. His all-consuming interests in radical science, cryptozoology, and general esoterica inspire his stories. Brad’s first feature, “Love and Saucers” won a special jury mention at Fantastic Fest ‘17, and landed a Hulu exclusive shortly after. Though he has not yet had a supernatural experience, he is ready and willing.
