Films are all "road movies" related to El Paraiso (formerly called The Marfa Project). El Paraiso began with a road trip to Marfa, Texas, during which the Rude Mechs sat around in bars with rodeo cowboys and other fascinating locals to begin an exploration of the "West" and all things Texan. The play will have its world premiere April 25 at the Off Center. The film titles in this program include "Confederate Park" by Bill Brown, "Looking for Mushrooms" (revised 1996 version) by Bruce Conner, "17 Reasons Why" by Nathaniel Dorsky and "Real Italian Pizza" by David Rimmer.
