Weekend arts agenda: Underground film series at Whitespace March 27 2009

Inman Park's Whitespace Gallery has earned a reputation for its architectural charm and its stable of idiosyncratic photographers, sculptors and painters. In lieu of a new exhibition, the venue launches a three-week series of underground film screenings, collectively titled At Loose Ends, curated by Brad Lapin. The festivities begin tonight at 9 p.m. with Mary Jordon's Jack Smith and the Destruction of Atlantis, followed by a discussion of the film.

From Whitespace:

Mary Jordan's award-winning documentary traces the life and times of the revolutionary artist and filmmaker Jack Smith whose best known film Flaming Creatures (1963) is widely considered among the most influential underground films ever made. Utilising a mixture of rare archival material and interviews with important artistic and cultural figures of the 60s (and beyond), Jordan produces a riveting portrait of both the man and the milieu.
