Canvas// SINtegrate #1: Dollface World Premiere

  • Canvas Chicago, Illinois (map)

SINtegrate is a bi-monthly hybrid gallery and cinema experience. A film is selected from the Chicago film-making community and then an immersive and experimental event is designed to bring that film to life.

DollFace is a short film, written and directed by Layne Marie Williams. The event will be the first official screening of the film. 

Examining both the good and the bad, Dollface endeavors to explore everything from the societal, religious, and racial pressures surrounding the mystery of the institution of marriage.

The event is designed to transport you, through sights, sounds, and sips into the world of Max & Dot's decaying relationship, on the day of their wedding. Artists, dancers, poets, instrumentalists, and music performers all share in the burden of bringing the tragedy of Dollface to life. 

Formal, Sexy, Hip. You are attending the wedding of Dot and Max. Even if they don't make it to the alter. 

Original cocktails and hors d'oeuvers, inspired by the film, will be available at the event. 

SINtegrate and the Canvas event space are 21+ events.
