In January we're presenting Linas Phillips, an artist who has become well known in recent years for his filmmaking. We're happy to welcome him back to the stage and wanted to offer a glimpse into what he's been up to since he was last seen at OtB with 33 Fainting Spells in 2004. Check out these trailers:

Walking to Werner | Inspired by legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog's many adventures on foot, Linas walks 1,200 miles from Seattle to Los Angeles in the hopes of meeting Werner and experiencing the world on foot.

Great Speeches from a Dying World | Linas Phillips’ unique and compassionate exploration of the hard luck, wrong turns, and broken dreams that reside on our city’s streets. Great Speeches uncovers the stories and struggles of 10 Seattle homeless people, each of whom recite famous speeches from history that relate to their lives: from Shakespeare to JFK to Chief Sealth.

The drop dates for both these DVDs are still TBD, but keep an eye out for these titles to land soon.
