Story Image On Wednesday, the Logan Theater turns into that annual anti-multiplex known as the Chicago Underground Film Festival.For five days, on two screens, this fete of non-conformity serves adventurous viewers with fiction, non-fiction, hybrids and mash-ups of sound and sight.

Programmer and artistic director Bryan Wendorff sorted through some 2,000 entries and selected 100 or so shorts and features shot in Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bali, Canada, Czech Republic, Egypt, India, Italy and South Africa. Locations range from Lower Wacker Drive to the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland. Subjects include an ex-con with “poly-substance abuse” and an obese cat named Trouble.

Some filmmakers refer to philosophers: Jameson, Kristeva, Ranciere, Peirce. Others cite and recycle earlier films, from “Citizen Kane” to the Soviet war drama “The Cranes Are Flying.”
