Day is Done. Poster for World Theatrical Premiere.Los Angeles: California Institute of Arts, 2007. Fine. 26 x 20 inches; Screenprint on cardstock.
One of a series of unique screenprinted posters made by Cal Arts students in collaboration with Mike Kelley for the world theatrical premiere of his film Day is Done, at Cal Arts' Redcat Theater in Downtown Los Angeles. A writer on IMDB reviewed the film as follows: "Day is Done is not an easy film to describe. All of the action takes place within the confines of a modern Californian high school. The student body made up of cheerleaders, jocks, vampires, witches, skinheads and ballerinas whose only common ground is that they all worship Satan. They also sing arias, perform pantomimes that are described by inter-titles as 'reconstructions', give stand up routines and argue about race theory. At three hours Day is Done is not an easy watch, but it is certainly not forgettable and for fans of Kelley, it stands as one of the artist's most unified and powerful works."
