The folks who donated to Houston artist Emily Peacock’s Indiegogo campaign last year will finally get to see the results of their generosity. DiverseWorks will premiere Peacock’s 27-minute film August at the Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston (MATCH) on July 14.
On the fundraising site, Peacock described the film: “Loosely based on my own experiences, August finds its title character in various scenarios, navigating the humor, tragedy, and absurdity of life as a 30-year-old woman and emerging artist.”
Brian Piana recently interviewed the artist about the film on his podcast Spill Some [Stuff]. She discusses making of the film, collaboration versus studio practice, processing grief, and stand-up comedy.
