Bruce Bacca Pop-Up Church opens this Friday in San FranciscoJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 08 Dec 2010
Our New Media and Technology Editor, Alexander Tarrant, has a new project, and it revolves around Bruce Bacca. That is right, Bruce Willis and Chewbacca. And then it revolves around a church, a church of Bruce Bacca. This Friday, December 10, the Bruce Bacca Pop-Up Church opens in San Francisco.
Full release is as follows, and it's amazing:
Friday December 10th at 7pm marks the opening of the Bruce Bacca Pop-Up Church at 248 Fillmore St., San Francisco.
Like the earth itself, it took 7 days to construct this church and it’s vague system of beliefs based on the 1988 film Die Hard, it’s mythical leading man Bruce Willis, and an exquisitely carved wooden Chewbacca Mask.
Churchgoers will want to bring their cameras to capture the moment they walk the carpeted broken glass gauntlet, wear the wooden mask, and become an indoctrinated member of this temporary system of worship.
Following the dry baptism, available for $10 is the short(er) film “Incident at Nakatomi” – a pious remastering of the classic film Die Hard (1988) in which the image and voice of Bruce Willis has been completely removed. The resulting film is introspective and thought provoking, yet still contains enough explosive excitement to keep even the most discerning action fan satisfied.
The church will be open from December 10th – 26th, and will be performing the civic duty of holding a soup kitchen on Christmas Day.
