  Dance Moves HULL FILM presents DANCE MOVES a special two-part film
  programme taking place during the TWO WEEKENDS dance festival The
  marriage of dance, performance and film creates a very particular
  dynamic. The negotiation of the live performer with the mechanics of
  filmmaking makes for a naturally questioning form. The fusion, at its
  best, asks important questions about the nature of the body on the
  screen, how movement should be framed, what gesture can mean, how rhythm
  is exploited. How much can be said by not speaking, by asking us to
  look? RIZE PART ONE Feature Film programme Friday November 10th 7.30pm
  Hull Screen|University of Lincoln|George Street|Hull|HU1 3BW RIZE David
  LaChapelle 2005|86'|col|35mm|USA/UK|Rated:PG Rize reveals a
  groundbreaking dance phenomenon that's exploding on the streets of South
  Central, Los Angeles. Taking advantage of unprecedented access, this
  documentary film brings to first light a revolutionary form of artistic
  expression borne from oppression. The aggressive and visually stunning
  dance modernizes moves indigenous to African tribal rituals and features
  mind-blowing, athletic movement sped up to impossible speeds. Rize
  tracks the fascinating evolution of the dance: we meet Tommy Johnson
  (Tommy the Clown), who first created the style as a response to the 1992
  Rodney King riots and named it "Clowning", as well as the kids who
  developed the movement into what they now call Krumping. The kids use
  dance as an alternative to gangs and hustling: they form their own
  troupes and paint their faces like warriors, meeting to outperform rival
  gangs of dancers or just to hone their skills. For the dancers, Krumping
  becomes a way of life – and, because it's authentic expression (in
  complete opposition to the bling-bling hip-hop culture), the dance
  becomes a vital part of who they are.

London, England: Exploding Cinema
7:30, The Albany Theatre - (The Studio), Douglas Way, Deptford, London SE8 4AG

  Attention loyal patrons and punters of Exploding Cinema! Are you sick of
  hearing about the London Film Festival? Are you doubtful of the value of
  shelling out double figure money to see a film that will either be
  coming out in two weeks anyway, can be downloaded for free, or just
  looks like crap? Let's face it, everything worth seeing has been sold
  out for weeks and the rest of what's on offer isn't fit to have the
  silver extracted from its celluloid and fashioned into cock rings* Now
  the unfounded bitter diatribe is out of the way, let us tempt you with a
  show that for ONE NIGHT only will tickle your retinas with films that
  will delight, stimulate and challenge in unequal measure. With a nod to
  our fans in southeast London, Exploding Cinema is back in New Cross! As
  well as a bevvy of fantastic underground, no budget, some budget and WTF
  short films from the UK and points abroad, there will be the usual
  prizes, live interval act, eye-popping projections and any other
  cine-related silliness we can think of. Tube: New Cross, Deptford Bridge
  DLR. Rail: Deptford, New Cross Buses: 21, 36, 47, 53, 136, 177, 188,

  anything that has been programmed by Philip Ilson. We love you, Philip.

London, England: Paul Tarrago + Jennet Thomas
midday to 6pm, Friday to Sunday, Alma Enterprises, 1 Vyner Street, London E2 9DG

  10th Nov - 17th Dec 2006 WE MAKE OUR OWN TELEVISION: New video work by
  Paul Tarrago + Jennet Thomas Alma Enterprises Open: Friday-Sunday 12pm -
  6pm Preview Thursday 9th Nov 6pm-9pm WE MAKE OUR OWN TELEVISION is a
  collaborative venture between Paul Tarragó and Jennet Thomas, taking the
  form of a video installation show on tour internationally from September
  2006 - June 2007. In Because of the War a dapper Yellow Man Lecturer
  looks the viewer squarely in the eye and delivers an account of how it
  all came to pass: the conflict, the changes, everyday acts of
  transubstantiation, leading to a world where magick and ritual are
  suburban norms. Part slide show, with occasional forays into narrative
  interludes, this free verse instructional starts to shift the viewer's
  gaze-although a world governed by Neo-Absurdist un-sense, there's a
  burgeoning sense of familiarity. This not-quite-here, with its skewed
  and confusing folklore, isn't as elsewhere as first seems. The Badger
  Series has issues, and attempts-each episode-to resolve them. Recasting
  a glove puppet show through his own present day sensibilities, Tarragó
  himself assumes the role of the kindly uncle mentor to a household of
  capersome woodland creatures while modern themes are introduced.
  Mortality, sanity, depression, altered states of consciousness and
  transgressive art practices are all negotiated as part of everyday
  living. Meanwhile the show is mindful to adhere the old structural
  formulae, with entertainment numbers and routines appropriate to the
  scaled down sitcom world that they occupy. The series is equal parts
  moral instruction and narrative play, mediated through the forced fit of
  an experimental filmmaker as children's entertainer. WE MAKE OUR OWN
  TELEVISION features video work that defies classification - a hybrid of
  underground film, experimental art practices and personal folk cinema.

London, England: Tate Modern
7pm, Bankside, SE1

  The 1960s and 1970s were groundbreaking decades in which independent
  filmmakers challenged cinematic convention. In England, much of the
  innovation took place at the London Film-Makers' Co-operative, an
  artist-led organisation that enabled filmmakers to control every aspect
  of the creative process. LFMC members conducted an investigation of
  celluloid that echoed contemporary developments in painting and
  sculpture. The physical production of a film became integral to its form
  and content as Malcolm Le Grice, Lis Rhodes, Peter Gidal and others
  explored the material and mechanics of cinema, making radical new works
  that contributed to a new visual language. SHOOT SHOOT SHOOT: PROGRAMME
  1: The Materialist tendency characterised the hardcore of British
  filmmaking in the early 1970s. Distinguished from Structural Film, these
  works were primarily concerned with duration and the raw physicality of
  the celluloid strip. SLIDES (Annabel Nicolson) AT THE ACADEMY (Guy
  Sherwin) SHEPHERD'S BUSH (Mike Leggett) FILM NO. 1 (David Crosswaite)
  SURFER (Mike Dunford) FOOTSTEPS (Marilyn Halford). Curated by Mark
  Webber. A "Shoot Shoot Shoot" DVD is published by LUX/Re:Voir.

New York, New York: MIX NYC
10 PM, 3LD Art and Technology Center, 80 Greenwich St. (at Rector St.)

  Pour une nuit is a series of five sexy short scenes, each recording an
  intense affair between two real live queers. Each participant chose a
  partner and discussed erotic fantasies prior to filming, yet events
  unfold naturally, with little attention to the camera's prying gaze. The
  result is magnetic. Jouvet's players act out their desires and delve
  into sexual practices as varied as the queer community itself. Pussy
  Buffet Kadet Kuhne & Ursula Rodriguez, USA, video, color, sound, 6 min.
  Desserts down there. Right After They Pet Me Janene Higgins, 2002, USA,
  Mini DV, color, sound, 3 min. As the torch singer laments the fact that
  she's a great lay, the video thumbs its nose at the idea that girls
  aren't supposed to want it. Music: "I'm Good for Nothing but Love" by
  Martin/Ballard; sung by the fabulous Ruth Etting. Pour Une Nuit (One
  Night Stand) Emile Jouvet, 2006, France, video, color, sound, French
  with English subtitles, 81 min. New York Premiere You can't always get
  what you want, unless you take matters into your own hands and do it
  yourself. Introducing queer young French director and photographer
  Emilie Jouvet, who gladly took matters in hand and recorded them to
  create the unforgettably sexy short film series Pour une nuit. Jouvet is
  the proud creator of this groundbreaking queer "sex-art" piece, also
  known as the first dyke and boi porno ever made in France. Get ready for
  an erotic and gritty romp into the broad universe of queer sexuality,
  beautifully handmade for your viewing pleasure.

New York, New York: MIX NYC
10:30 PM, 3LD Art and Technology Center, 80 Greenwich St. (at Rector St.)

  Rites of PTAH Micki Pellerano, 2006, USA, video, color, sound, 4 min.
  World Premiere Punk boy sex magick. V.O. William Jones, 2006, USA,
  video, color, sound, 59 min. V.O. consists (mainly) of sound quotes from
  more-or-less mainstream-foreign classics, by the likes of de Olivera,
  Renoir, Buñuel, Kaurismäki, Schroter, Eimgholz, and Debord, (None of
  which, by the way, are currently distributed in the USA) plus excerpts
  from American gay porno classics from the 70s and 80s, works by
  established masters like Tom de Simone (Confessions of a Groupie, 1970),
  Fred Halsted (L. A. Plays Itself, 1972), or Joe Gage (in particular his
  proletarian trilogy made between 1976 and '78: Kansas City Trucking Co.,
  El Paso Wrecking Corp., and L. A. Tool & Die). Nothing is ever done to
  hide the fact that these parts don't belong together per se, the sounds
  and images hit each other, violently, relentlessly, with solely the
  subtitles – the words these sounds mean, a layer all its own – as
  something like and equilibrating force in it all. These layers don't
  question each other; they start to hit on each other. They play with
  each other becoming one in an awesome evocation of love and passion, its
  conditions and guises. Plus…a surpise Super8mm film!

New York, New York: MIX NYC
7 PM, 3LD Art and Technology Center, 80 Greenwich St. (at Rector St.)

  In summer 2006, MIX NYC initiated its queer youth media training
  program, A Different Take, and joined other such successful public
  programs as REACH LA in offering lesbian, gay, bi- and transgender youth
  the tools and training to gain power as media-makers by expressing their
  perspectives through video production. Delivering their own State of the
  Union, the young auteurs represented here, many from A Different Take or
  from REACH LA's video production workshop, break down authentic queer
  stories with heart, craft and insight. Inside Out Jessica Scott, 2006,

  sound, 8 min. An animated short that playfully portrays the realities of
  a young gay Latino male living in South Central Los Angeles. The short
  explores friendship, education, homophobia and racism but in a dynamic,
  youth-friendly animation style. This innovative approach is designed to
  engage young people in meaningful conversation about difficult topics,
  shared from the perspective of their peers. Featuring the voice and
  video footage of 19 year-old Enzo Ybarra. Green Room Matt Palazzolo,
  2005, USA, video, color, sound, 6 min. New York Premiere "Green Room" is

  intense existing process, "Green Room" offers unique insight into the
  experience of modern queer teen in the form of a visual autobiography.

New York, New York: MIX NYC
8 PM, 3LD Art and Technology Center, 80 Greenwich St. (at Rector St.)

  I don't know that this video program is really about drugs and
  television at all; of course it's about something…it could simply be a
  small reflection of an archaeology of a train of thought, and perhaps
  that's all it really needs it be. In the least, it's about watching.
  Joshua Thorson, Guest Curator Edie After Hours Seth Kirby, 2005, video,
  color, sound, 2 min. An analogue disco processing, from the Maysles'
  Grey Gardens, of Edie dancing with the American flag as the world around

  VHS video games and internet video are fed back through analog
  processors in this witty and poetic comment on race and Warholian fame.
  Ringo Zapruder Dale Hoyt, 1981, video, color, sound, 5 min. A remake of

  MK & A Sarah McKiel, 2006, video, color, sound, 1 min. Sarah McKiel's
  project NSM Fashions includes a book, and a long sequence of videos,

  repeatedly and in slow-mo, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen on Saturday Night
  Live screaming. Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Paul Bush, 2001, video, color,
  sound, 5 min. The 1941 film version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde remade

  Robert Louis Stevenson. The Possible Fog of Heaven John Knecht, 1993,
  USA, video, color, sound, 10 min. Speaking for the first time from the

  otherwise strobe-sensitive please use caution. I Did It Peter Brinson,
  2001, video, color, sound, 17 min. Using the scientific method, Brinson
  evaluates himself and his video before and after taking Prozac to

  effect on his storytelling. I: Subplot Sarah McKiel, 2006, video, color,
  sound, 3 min. From NSM Fashions. An interventionist approach to the
  experience of experiencing America's Top Model, in this special instance

  This collection of shorts is sure to appeal anyone with an interest in

  35mm, b/w and color) Anthology is thrilled to present the first New York
  Theatrical Premiere Run of Robert Frank's ME AND MY BROTHER, his

  a fictional framework. Constantly delineating real and imaginary
  situations and moving back and forth between gorgeous color and
  black-and-white, the film describes the inner and outer worlds of
  Julius, a catatonic, who silently observes the world around him. The
  film was re-edited in 1997 to mark the passing of Allen Ginsberg and
  also features the late Joseph Chaikin, founder of the revolutionary
  Off-Broadway company, Open Theater. ME AND MY BROTHER's re-edited
  version "re-premiered" in 1998 at the San Francisco International Film
  Festival. ME AND MY BROTHER is a capturing film, which on the surface is
  about mental illness and the society's response to it. Montage, split
  screen, disrupted sense of time and unconventional sound are used in
  this film, which is a also a study of the fine line between documentary
  film and reality, and the relationship between film and fact.
