Other People’s Screens, a monthly experimental film screening series at Chase Public now entering into its sixth consecutive month, typically focuses on documentary-style films. For August’s program “Body Doubles,” however, organizers have taken a bit of a detour with a lineup of six genre-blurring shorts (many fresh off the festival circuit) that call into question the very tools and tropes of documentary filmmaking itself. Subjects tackled include the vocal stylings of a manic blue genie, Katie Holmes’ hands, an invented language shared with a parrot and Craigslist acting calls. Featured filmmakers include Mariah Garnett, Mary Helena Clark, Jesse McLean, Deborah Stratman and others.


8:30 p.m. Sunday. Free. 1569 Chase Ave., Suite 4, Northside, chasepublic.com
