"bCreative" will lead off the "Made in Idaho: A Panorama of Local Shorts" screenings.
-Saturday Oct. 1 at 7pm. (The Flicks)
-Sunday Oct.2 at 12pm. (The Egyptian)
As a local filmmaker, I am thrilled to introduce a series on Boise's Creative Class with this fifteen minute documentary as Episode 1. This short film features artists from the 2004 Boise Art Museum (BAM) Idaho Triennial, as well as other members of Boise's Creative Class.
Nurtured by Idaho's landscape and culture of independence, the connection of locals, transplants, and boomerangs to western textures and values shapes Boise’s creativity and productivity, from technology to art.
