Hear from filmmaker Fox Maxy (Mesa Grande Band of Mission Indians and Payómkawish) in a conversation at the Varsity Theatre and see Maxy’s film Gush (2023). Maxy is a San Diego-based artist and filmmaker whose work has screened at Sundance, MoMA, and Melbourne International Film Festival among others. Her feature film debut Gush, which premiered last year at Sundance Film Festival, is an embodied rumination of both male and female power, healing and haunting, all within an apocalyptic world. A transformation that courses through unknown terror to untamed collective joy.
