Sometime painter Sam Holdsworth painted a series of 38 oil panels which were an imaginative, sideways tribute to that local summertime menace, the Tabanus americanus — or Greenhead horse fly. This short film, produced and narrated by Holdsworth’s Musician Magazine co-founder, Gordon Baird, is a simultaneously amusing and haunting short film, portraying the carnivorous creatures as human-like and alien at the same time.

Mr. Baird will be on hand to present the film and conduct a Q&A after the show, which is presented at the special discount price of $5.00, proceeds from which will benefit the Matteo Russo Fund. A selection of Gloucester-related short subjects will precede the film.

One Response to Movie – “Greenheads”

    I would love to view this film. These paintings of Holdsworth’s invoke a sense of being tormented by the Inquisition. Anyone who has ever been on a Cape Ann Beach in July would recognize that feeling of being relentlessly persecuted by an inhuman and sadistic enemy (the greenhead fly). Is there any chance you might decide to make “Greenheads” an annual showing?
