In its decade of existence, it has been said more than once that The Nightingale has been able to do a lot with very little. With thousands of eyes served over the past decade, the vibe around here has been ‘in for a penny, in for a pound’ — suffice to say, we don’t scrimp. This birthday screening celebrates Chicago’s micro-budgeted and macro-hearted apartment cinema and considers how we measure up, pound for pound, with work from artists riffing on indexes, marking time, and units of measure.
