Wine Tasting & Short Films in Chicago...

Saturday, April 21 6-8pm
House Red in Forest Park welcomes celebrated Independent Filmmaker Kelley Baker for his return to Chicago on his 2007 Spring tour.

Kelley Baker, known as the “Angry Filmmaker” was the sound designer on 6 of Gus Van Sant’s features, including “My Own Private Idaho", Good Will Hunting, To Die For starring Nicole Kidman and "Finding Forrester” starring Sean Connery. He also designed the sound on Todd Haynes feature film, Far From Heaven , with Dennis Quaid and Julianne Moore.

He has written and directed three independent features, as well as numerous short films and documentaries. Kelley's short films have aired on PBS, The Learning Channel, Canadian and Australian television. His films have been shown at Film Festivals like London, Sydney, Annecy and Edinburgh.

The Last time Kelley visited Chicago in fall of 2005 he screened his then latest independent feature "Kicking Bird" at the Lake Theater in Oak Park. While in Chicago Kelley will be lecturing at Columbia and DePaul Colleges. Kelley will be at House Red for a showing of a selection of his short films and will be available to answer questions.

For anyone interested in film or filmmaking this is a rare informal public appearance and a chance to ask questions about the filmmaking process.

Appetizers will be provided and...Of course, there is also wine tasting!!!
