In a Town by the Forest on the Shore: The Life of Urmo Hipock
as told by Murphi Cook

In 1998, obscure filmmaker Urmo Hipock met with a small gathering of fans at the Savannah College of Art and Design to announce his newest project. "The Clown was Stung by Wasps" quickly became the stuff of legend, and when Hipock died in a tragic barn fire in 2015, it was assumed the unseen film was lost with him. Through a series of hidden keys and alleyway meetings, local nobody Murphi Cook has uncovered a series of artifacts from Hipock's final masterpiece. $3 Suggested beverage donation.
