In this latest season, Margaret invited 15 artists to read from texts that “drew them to the dark side,” i.e., lead them to becoming artists. These interviews are accompanied by memorable clips from episodes throughout the years from the origins of Verb Frau, to Desktop performances, the Krankies, and much more! Video Out’s KC Wei will moderate a Q&A with Margaret after the screening.
