Houston, Texas: Aurora Picture Show
3pm, 800 Aurora Street, Houston, TX 77009

  Curated by Mark Yzaguirre, 713.868.2101,, $5
  general admission, Free with Aurora All-Access Pass, This program is a
  collection of four documentaries that deal with different aspects of
  American life, from personal recreation to the conduct of foreign
  policy. Lauren Madow's Playground follows a few ordinary kids from New
  York City who make the city their playground. The Bear Hunter by Mary
  Robertson provides an intimate portrait of a Pennsylvania man who, after
  decades of unsuccessful bear hunts, finally meets with success, which
  turns out to not be quite what he expected. It's not my memory of it:
  three recollected documents by Julia Meltzer and David Thorne is a
  documentary about secrecy, memory, and documents which raises questions
  about notions of disappearance and the tenuousness of historical fact in
  the current climate of terror. Last, but certainly not least, Matt
  McCormick's American Nutria gives us a view of the life and history of a
  large rodent species that didn't plan to emigrate to America, but came
  and prospered.

Los Angeles, California: Filmforum
7:00 pm, Egyptian Theatre, 6712 Hollywood Blvd.

  The works present a broad spectrum of approaches coming from
  contemporary Los Angeles. This collection of videos spans the range of
  performance to animation, meditative to political, experimental to
  narrative. A complex digital program that reflects the complicated site
  of our city.

Portland, Oregon: Cinema Project
7:30pm, 922 SE Ankeny Street

  Cinema Project is delighted to have Rebecca Baron, a Los Angeles-based
  filmmaker and professor of film and video at the California Arts
  Institute, in Portland to present two evenings of film. Her most recent
  piece, How Little We Know of Our Neighbours, is an experimental
  documentary about Britain's Mass Observation Movement and its
  relationship to contemporary issues regarding surveillance, public
  self-disclosure, and privacy. Balancing conventional documentary
  strategies with forms of narrative this film investigates the multiple
  roles cameras have played in public space. The Idea Of North, based on
  photographs taken a century ago by three polar explorers marooned on an
  ice floe, presents the limitations of images and other forms of record
  as a means of knowing the past. She will also be screening Humphrey
  Jennings' 1939 film Spare Time.

San Francisco, California: San Francisco Cinematheque
7:30pm, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, 701 Mission Street at Third

  This program is part of San Francisco Cinematheque's PACIFIC RIM series.
  Cinematheque presents a rare showcase of recent experimental media from
  Taiwan introduced and presented by Bay Area filmmaker Anita Chang, who
  has been an artist resident and Fulbright lecturer there for the past
  few years. These works and their techniques reverberate with
  incisiveness, sensitivity, and introspection as they speak to what
  remains for a young democratic stateless nation vulnerable to the whims
  of dominant global economic exploits. Shifting between the lingering and
  fleeting, reconstructed and abandoned, sentiment and satire, they are
  soulful reclamations in the midst of precipitous change and loss. Works
  include: CHEN Chieh-Jen's Factory, Tony Chun-Hui WU's exTAIPEIit, LIN
  Chun-Hua's She says, Mia CHEN's Red-Label Rice Wine, HOU Chi-Jan's
  Stardust 15749001, and Nana WU's Farewell 1999. Presented in Association
  with the Center for Asian American Media. ADMISSION: $8 general, $5
  Cinematheque Members, Seniors, Disabled, Students (w. ID). Advance
  Tickets: 415-978-ARTS

MONDAY, MAY 8, 2006

Brooklyn, New York: Ocularis
8 PM, 70 North 6th Street

  Curated by interdisciplinary artist duo LoVid, Flipped Chips includes
  single channel videos as well as presentations by artists from around
  the world who custom make their own hardware video instruments. Dan
  Sandin, Nam June Paik, Steina and Woody Vasulka, Matthew Schlanger,
  Steve Beck, Jim Wiseman, and Bill Etra represent a generation of
  pioneers who explored video and moving image synthesis. These artists
  developed hardware instruments as technological advancements in an era
  of idealism and utopian views of communication, where video and
  television were regarded as the ultimate new creative medium, able to
  elicit widespread cultural and social change. Tonight their work will be
  shown alongside that of a new generation of artists returning to
  hardware-based video instruments, like Billy Roisz (NTSC), noteNdo, Jon
  Satrom, Paul Slocum, Karl Klomp, Cory Arcangel and Paper Rad, and LoVid.
  Departing from their predecessors, the latter set approaches technology
  with personal and global nostalgia as well as a romantic infatuation
  with the media-generating object. Inspired by noise, extreme music,
  glitch and hacker culture, as well as the fragility, unpredictability,
  and limitations of technology, they choose to work with decades-old
  electronic components for personal aesthetic reasons and as a reaction
  to the dominance of technology and media in mainstream culture. Advance
  tickets available here:

Los Angeles, California: Redcat
8pm, 631 W. 2nd St.

  U.S. premiere China, 2004, 110 min., Beta SP The multiple prize-winning
  feature Niupi (Oxhide) is an extraordinary tour de force by 23-year old
  Liu Jiayin, who shot it (in CinemaScope!) in the 50 square meters of her
  family apartment—playing her own role while her parents played theirs.
  The film, however, is entirely scripted and designed with unflinching
  rigor. Liu staged 23 static shots and kept her small DV camera in
  claustrophobic proximity of her subjects, often showing only parts of
  their bodies with an on-screen conversation. With a sure hand and a
  mundane-yet-lyrical inspiration, Liu reinvents the kammerspiel for the
  one-child families in contemporary China. In person: Liu Jiayin

Evanston, IL: Block Cinema
8 pm, Pick-Laudati Auditorium at the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art, Northwestern University, 40 Arts Circle Drive

  Side/Walk/Shuttle (Ernie Gehr, 1991, U.S., 41 min., 16mm); (Michael
  Snow, 1968-9, Canada, 52 min., 16mm). Abstracted from narrative purpose
  or emotional intention, camera motion through space urges the viewer to
  meditate on the motion itself. The more extreme it is, the more apparent
  it becomes that an image can indeed affect our body. WARNING: Tonight's
  films contain extreme, constant motion. Those who become dizzy or
  disoriented from such effects may be at risk. Guest speaker: Film
  Professor Chuck Kleinhans, Northwestern University. For more information

Chicago, Illinois: The Orgone Archive
8pm, Chicago Filmmakers 5243 North Clark Street Chicago, IL 60640

  Chicago Filmmakers presents an evening of Pennsylvania filmmaking
  screened for you in two parts by The Orgone Archive (ex-Orgone Cinema)
  from Pittsburgh 13, Penna. Part 1: The Autofilmography of Fred McLeod or
  The Film You Are Looking For Is Not On This Reel Mix Warhol's static
  voyeurism, Markopoulos' intricate sense of place and Anger's flair for
  pop music and color, and you might come close describing the cinema of
  Oakmont, Pennsylvania's amateur, Auricon auteur Fred McLeod. Considered
  by railroad enthusiasts to be the father of sync sound train films,
  McLeod left behind a legacy of personal movies made between 1933 and
  1980. Whereas the majority of amateurs were out documenting vacations,
  parties and picnics, McLeod was busy making films about wood saws,
  bicycles, Buicks, golf, television, churches, Christmas trees, autumn
  leaves and steam locomotives. Greg Pierce of The Orgone Archive will be
  presenting a healthful dose of McLeod's cinematic wonders, each one a
  pure and particular peek at everyday marvels and the man in front of the
  camera. No disappointment! Part 2: Some Pittsburgh Filmmaking (1959 -
  2006) Continuing the no disappointment and adding the almost
  never-before-seen we conclude with a slight inventory of Pittsburgh
  (ex-Smoke City) 16mm filmmaking. Take a Kodachromatic tour of Joseph D.
  Kramer's Squirrel Hill Home Inventory; watch real zombies act like
  consumers at the Monroeville Mall in rushes from Dawn of the Dead; revel

  finally to fully realized portraits. Tonight:?The Office (1966)?The Tram
  (1966) ?Concert of Requests (1967)?From the City of Lodz (1969),?I Was a

San Francisco, California: San Francisco Cinematheque
7:30pm, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, 701 Mission Street at Third

  Filmmakers Gibbs Chapman, Yin-Ju Chen, James T. Hong, Kerry Laitala In
  Person. The works in tonight's program examine, use, and imagine
  technology in provocative ways. Collectively they ask not only how do
  –or might– technologies affect us, but how they determine our images and
  imaginings of the world. From fairgrounds to the Zuse strip, from push
  buttons to cars, video games, reproductive and waste technologies, the
  works explore our cyborg nature. Created using either hand-processed
  film, cgi, appropriated tv, or plain old cameras, and made for the big
  screen or the i-pod, works include Kerry Laitala's Orbit, Caspar
  Stracke's Zuse Strip, Gibbs Chapman's Push Button: A History of Idleness
  & Ignorance, Scott Stark's Driven, Pawel Wojtasik's Dark Sun Squeeze,
  Yin-Ju Chen and James T. Hong's Suprematist Kapital, and Hong's The
  Coldest War Part 1. ADMISSION: $8 General, $5 Cinematheque Members,
  Seniors, Disabled, Students (w. ID). Advance Tickets: 415-978-ARTS
