We first saw the trailer for Dirty Projectors’ new film Hi Custodian before their excellent Swing Lo Magellan was released. Now the film has been given a release date and an official premiere. Pitchfork (who also executive produced the film) is hosting two screenings at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema in Manhattan on September 6, one at 8:00PM and one at 10:00PM. Both shows are free and feature a Q&A with Dave Longstreth, other members of Dirty Projectors, and the director of photography, Bobby Bukowski. To attend, send an RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you don’t live in NYC, or end up not getting a seat at one of the screenings, the film will have an online premiere on Pitchfork.tv the next day on September 7.
