Tonight in Los Angeles, Gary Baseman (interviewed) will be launching his kickstarter for Mythical Creatures, a documentary about the artist and his career by David Charles. Held from 8pm – 10pm at Canter’s DeliThe Kibitz Room, the donation event will also feature a set from Moby but requires an RSVP ([email protected]).

The premise behind the film – “After the recent passing of his parents, Gary was compelled to dive deep into his heritage and tell their tragic experience during the Holocaust in their hometown village in what is now the Ukraine. Through an exploration of his art, his personal journey, and the history of one of the world’s most devastating wars, Gary will walk in his parents’ footprints from his home in the Fairfax District of Los Angeles to the deep forests of the Ukraine, encountering and interacting with local artists, the current political situation, and the lost stories of genocide.”
