"Glissando," an indie feature by Park Slope filmmaker Chip Hourihan, has been traveling the festival circuit for a couple of years, but it will be screened a bit closer to home on Dec. 18 at Manhattan’s Pioneer Theater.

The film’s soundtrack features a number of Brooklyn-based artists, Hourihan told GO Brooklyn, including Tom Clark and the High Action Boys, John Kimbrough and guitarist Lenny Kaye.

Hourihan produced and directed "Glissando," a story centering on 15-year-old Jim (Chris Van Strander) and his father (Paul Frediani) and the young woman, Alida (Petra Wright), who comes between them. (Wright and Frediani are pictured above in a scene from "Glissando.")

Based on Robert Boswell’s short story (included in 2000’s "Still Wild: Short Fiction of the American West, 1950 to Present" edited by Larry McMurtry), the movie, shot on color MiniDV and black-and-white Super 16-mm film, is set in a desolate Arizona desert town in the ’70s.

A Q&A with Hourihan will follow the 7 pm screening. The Pioneer Theater is located at 155 E. Third St. at Avenue A. Tickets are $9. For more information, visit or call (212) 254-3300.
