(August 14, 2015) – Slamdance
joins forces with the creators of The Resurrection of Jake the Snake
for the multi-city theatrical release of the 2015 Slamdance Film Festival favorite documentary beginning in Portland, Oregon on September 2nd. The Portland Film Festival

This year we welcome Bristol, UK's Rosie Lea
to the already impressive list of artists who have contributed to Slamdance including Shepard Fairey
, Kii Arens
and David Flores

, and L7

, and Jacknife Prints
This year's theme is Saints & Sinners
. With our showcase you're sure to get plenty of characters who are the best of the best, some who are the worst of the worst, and a whole bunch who are duplicitous surprises -- wolves in sheeps' clothing, snakes in the grass, smooth operators with well-concealed daggers, &c.
The new artwork is a playfully proto-interactive way to decide whether you're good, bad, or both at the same time. Looking one way, you see an Angel. Looking the other way, a demon. Depending on how you see the image, or with one a quick turn, you'll go from saint to sinner and then back again.
