Film maker Adam Mortimer who is currently travelling in Europe with No-Neck Blues Band (aka. NNCK) from New York City, will be here this coming Friday to present and screen one of his work “At 6am We Become Police”: a surreal documentary film work about No-Neck Blues Band.

Since 1995 Adam Egypt Mortimer has been filming No-Neck, documenting performances happening everywhere from the center of Manhattan to midnight performances in the woods. AT 6AM WE BECOME THE POLICE weaves together 10 years worth of performance footage with filmic images that get create an “Ecstatic Truth” about the band’s music. Inspired by project’s such as Sun Ra’s “Space Is The Place,” and Kenneth Anger’s “Lucifer Rising,” 6AM is an abstract sci-fi tinged face melting meditation on music, time travel, and the pursuit of the perfect psychotic breakthrough.

During Adam’s tour with NNCK, the film is also being screened at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussells.
