By Pam Barrett
Wake Forest University will host a free, public screening of Brett Ingram's award-winning film, "Monster Road," at 7 p.m. Nov. 10 in Benson University Center's Pugh Auditorium. A question-and-answer session with Ingram will follow the film.
"Monster Road," a 90-minute film co-produced by Ingram and Jim Haverkamp of Bright Eye Pictures in Durham, explores the life and work of Seattle underground animator Bruce Bickford. Bickford is best known for his collaborations with Frank Zappa in 1970s films like "Baby Snakes" and "The Amazing Mr. Bickford."
Ingram is a Kernersville native and former faculty member at Wake Forest. He is currently teaching film and video production at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
"Monster Road," which premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, in January 2004, was named best documentary at the festival and received the Grand Jury Sparky Award for Best Documentary Feature Sponsored by Alpha Cine.
Filmmaker Magazine named Ingram one of the "25 New Faces of Indie Film 2003" for his work in independent films.
