In case you haven't noticed, the Patchwerk Playhaus has been screening some cool stuff (go to http://patchwerkplayhaus.blogspot.com for their upcoming schedule), and viewers in the mood for something truly different should check out New Maps of the New World, a collection of eight shorts by Roger Beebe. Beebe, a professor of Film and Media Studies at the University of Florida, has some previous N.C. ties: He's a Duke University graduate and also served as a film programmer in Chapel Hill. Beebe will be in attendance to present several of his works; some, like TB TX DANCE (created with a black-and-white laser printer) and The Strip Mall Trilogy, are experimental pieces relying heavily on visual and aural innovations, while others, like Composition in Red & Yellow (a mock-patriotic look at McDonald's) and Famous Irish Americans, approach their subjects with a sly sense of humor. 8 p.m. $5. Patchwerk Playhaus (inside Century Vintage). 1508 Central Ave. www.clas.ufl.edu/users/rogerbb/films/newmapstour/NEWMAPSrelease.htm
