Come hang out with Brown Girl Collective at MoHA! It’s fun in the summer, from inside our cars, because eww it’s hot and germs are gross.

We’ll also play a game, but the particular game hasn’t been decided yet, so it’ll be a surprise!

FART Pt 2: The Squeakquel: Secret of the Ooze

Presented by Cindy Popp

FART Pt 2 is the long-anticipated follow up to FART: The Motion Picture (https://www.cindy-popp.com/merch/fart), a feature-length video mix tape. FART Pt 2 shares the same disjointed spirit, shlock value, crapster sensibility with all-new selections culled exclusively from VHS tapes. The video equivalent of throwing a cream pie against a freshly painted wall, viewer beware: none of this will make sense and much of it will be anti-pleasurable but hopefully the shared experience will lead to something fun and, as Bonnie Raitt says, will give ya “something to talk about”!

Cindy Popp is a visual artist, clown about town, and physical media enthusiast. She was born in Austin, grew up on a semi-truck, and now spends her time watching movies with her husband Bill and their cat, Nacho.

Friday 6/25 Films

“Quien Bien Ama Nunca Olvida” dir by Caitlin Diaz.

Quien bien ama nunca olvida (One never forgets a great love) is a love letter to the Rio Grande Valley, Texas. By weaving archival footage from her family’s archive alongside present-day vignettes, abstract animation and text, the filmmaker investigates her evolving fascination with the region. As humans we analyze and romanticize memory and experience, and as time goes on, we lose track of the facts. The filmmaker asks: What truth do we hide from others, or, maybe most importantly, deny ourselves?

“When You Clean a Stranger’s Home” dir by Sharon Arteaga

A first-generation high school student describes what her and her mom learn about people when cleaning their homes for a living. House decor and items left around convey a privilege that unveils her imagination, jealousy, and frustrations.

Saturday 6/26 Films

“Utopia de las mariposas” by Lukas Avendaño.

Lukas Avendaño is the most important artist of the Muxe community. Poetry, dance and anthropology are the tools he uses to enunciate and express himself. Since May 10, 2018, his brother Bruno disappeared in a mysterious way. In Mexico, Bruno is one of 40 thousand missing persons. For LuKas, the search for Bruno has become his greatest utopia.

On July 3rd, we’ll jetset with the girls as they find love in the pee-stained streets of Pari (Attitude, attitude! Always attitude!) and then are thrust into the witness protection program and forced to relocate Down Under, where they also find love. If you’re from Urugli, you won’t wanna miss it! And even if you’re not, on July 10th, You’re Invited to The Case of the clip show: a mish mash of the best straight-to-VHS capers from the tiny lil tots. Goo goo ga ga, put these babies to WORK already. Let’s party with the fraternal queens of capitalism! Bring your old ass husband! Drink a giant cup of Starbucks! Put your little brother up for sale! Prior knowledge of MK ultrA not required but always celebrated. You got it, dude. If it’s up to me, you’ll R-S-V-pee!

PWR Video Movies Presents: Legend’s of Wrestle (sic)

Presented by Party World Rasslin’

Mush-mouthed monomania and weaponized furniture — that’s wrestling. What else is wrestling? Wrestling is the only real sport. It’s not just humans smacking into each other (thought that happens — a lot). It’s a live exhibition of naked, clashing spirits! Watch meatheads with no business holding a microphone scream their souls bare, and give them your heart. Feel the power of a humble artform that’s been around for longer than rock music. Become enchanted by the heroics, skullduggery, and utter mayhem. Discover a need you never knew you had! Party World Rasslin’s Commissioner Chris Monica presents matches and interviews designed to give a broad overview of the Glory of Pro Wrestling. Hysterical, exciting, raw, and life-changing, wrestling is really fun to watch with friends. See more sweat on human bodies then you thought possible and drink deep of some cask-strength glowering. Thrill to surprising athletics and – most importantly – experience some weird, indescribable moments will be with you long after the event has ended.

Party World Rasslin’ (PWR) is a giant psychedelic party about wrestling that is also, itself, a wrestling league. Our shows have grown since 2014 from small backyard parties for technoburnouts and noise-freaks into giant free warehouse megaspectaculars shaped by our roots in DIY movements across Texas. We love wrestling—we think it’s a perfect thing—and hope you can too.
