Burning Paradise: The Sequel

Just in time for Day of the Dead, recently deceased movie rental mecca Burning Paradise Video has risen from the grave. After a frantic month in limbo, the store has reopened at its newest digs, 120 Yale SE (one block south of UNM). You can still go there to rent the best in cult/alternative/foreign/mainstream DVDs. But now you can also purchase just about anything in the store. Burning Paradise’s new business model is as a buy/sell/trade DVD store, meaning tons of fresh merchandise every week. The new location is larger than previous iterations, allowing for a welcome expansion of movie-related posters, toys, zines and T-shirts. If you wanna come check out the groovy new location, this Friday might be a good time. Starting at 7 p.m. on Nov. 4, the store will host a grand reopening party, complete with free snacks, live entertainment from local techno-punks Vertigo Venus and all kinds of super deals. Hit it up on Facebook for more details.

It’s About Time

The Chronos Film Festival—to my knowledge the only film festival dedicated entirely to time-lapse, slow-motion and stop-motion cinematography—will be spending some time at the KiMo Theatre in Downtown Albuquerque this weekend. Registration starts bright and early at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 3. That’s followed by an opening speech by guest of honor Philip Bloom (the “undisputed leader and voice of the DSLR movement”). Talks will take place throughout the day by noted producers, directors, documentarians and cinematographers in the field of digital video. At 5 p.m., there will be a special screening of Godfrey Reggio’s groundbreaking 1982 documentary Koyaanisqatsi. At 6:45 p.m., it’s Santa Fe filmmaker Matt Page’s DV webseries “Enter the Dojo.” Then at 7:15 p.m., it’s Edgar Michael Bravo’s microbudgeted “social issue” drama Mother’s Red Dress. Lectures, screenings, performances and parties continue through Saturday, Nov. 5. Go to for ticket information and a complete schedule of events.
