Oklahoma City, OK (PRWEB) June 06, 2013
Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center will host a free public screening of the documentary film Erasing David at 6 p.m. on Thursday, June 27, in the Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center auditorium, located at 3000 General Pershing Blvd.
David Bond lives in one of the most intrusive surveillance states in the world. He decides to find out how much private companies and the government know about him by putting himself under surveillance and attempting to disappear – a decision that changes his life forever. Leaving his pregnant wife and young child behind, he is tracked across the database state on a chilling journey that forces him to contemplate the meaning of privacy – and the loss of it.
Independent film screenings are part of Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center’s mission to encourage artistic expression in all its forms through education and exhibitions. Other recent films have included: “It Might Get Loud," “Queen of the Sun: What are the Bees Telling Us,” “Perdida,” “OT: Our Town” and “Forks over Knives.”
“The films we select are typically thought-provoking documentaries with content that relates to our exhibitions in some way,” said Erin Oldfield, Director of Programming for Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center. “Our current exhibition by Laurie Frick explores the intersection of technology and creativity as the artist herself adopts a daily regimen of self-tracking that measures her activities and body. We thought it would be appropriate to show a film that looks closely at topic of surveillance, whether self-imposed, or otherwise.”
Attendees will also have the opportunity to view the exhibition Walking, Eating, Sleeping.
The event is open to the public and there is no cost to attend. Refreshments will be provided beginning at 5:30 p.m. Enter to win one of two $60.00 gift cards to OK Runner upon arrival.
