8:00pm, Chicago Filmmakers (5243 N. Clark St.)

 THE NIXON WHITE HOUSE STAFF SUPER 8 FILMS
  Rare "Home-Movies" from the Nixon Administration! An extraordinarily
  rare and unique glimpse into our not-too-distant past, this program
  features a selection of the more than 200 rolls of Super-8mm film shot
  by several members of President Richard Nixon's staff between 1969 and
  1973, including John Ehrlichman and Chief of Staff H.R. Haldeman. The
  originals, confiscated by the FBI from Ehrlichman's office in 1973, are
  now housed at the National Archives and Records Administration. The
  films screening (1969-71, approx. 73 mins., silent) feature an array of
  official functions and special guests to the White House - from the
  mundane, to the fascinating, to the bizarre. Included are scenes from a
  performance of the musical 1776; a Presidential visit to the United
  Nations; various staff meetings and photo ops; Nixon visiting a
  Washington Redskins football practice; activities during Armed Forces
  Day; and appearances by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, Indira Ghandi,
  Bob Hope, and Pat Boone. 16mm preservation prints courtesy of BB Optics
  (special thanks to Bill Brand) with permission from the National
  Archives and Records Administration.

 ART/NEW YORK- PROGRAM # 3, PAUL TSCHINKEL'S NAM JUNE PAIK- PRISONER OF
 THE CATHODE RAY
  ART/new york, a video series on contemporary art, was begun in 1979.
  Paul Tschinket is the creator, producer, and director. NAM JUNE PAIK-
  Prisoner of te Cathode Ray (54 min.-2000) Nam June Paiuk (1932-2006) was
  the founding father of video art. For more than four decades he had
  explored and exploited television technology and used it as an artist's
  medium. Paik confessed that he had become the "prisoner of the cathode
  ray." Over the years he created an impressive, visionary and influential
  body of work that was not only shown world-wide but also greatly
  influenced both commercial and artistic media. Interviews are with NAM
  JUNE PAIK, art dealers' DOROTHY GOLDEEN and HOLLY SOLOMON and JOHN
  HANHARDT, then the senior curator of film and media arts at the
  Guggenheim Museum in New York City. Paul Tschinkel will be present to
  introduce and discuss this work. In addition we are expecting a guest
  speaker.

 STONEY BURKE’S DVD RELEASE CELEBRATION!
  Stoney's fearless voice of liberty has given so much to the Bay Area
  over the years that the SF Board of Supervisors recently declared a
  Stoney Burke Day! Putting his body on the line, the epitome of free
  speech in action, our favorite street comedian has railed against war
  and injustice for decades now, earning for him a place in the hearts of
  many citizens—and several stays in jail! Finally, the best recorded
  performances of this live-improvising raconteur have been compiled into
  a Greatest Hits collection, taking us through the turbulent years
  between 1977–2007. Stoney opens the show with a set of political
  stand-up, and then introduces each piece with an improvised comic
  anecdote. Doors open at 8pm for a meet 'n' greet amidst free Nutella and
  jaunty roller-rink melodies from David Cox on the mighty Korg.

Chicago, Illinois: Chicago Filmmakers
http://www.chicagofilmmakers.org/
7:00 pm, Chicago Filmmakers (5243 N. Clark St.)

 RE-DEFINING VIDEO: WORK BY KYLE CANTERBURY
  SPECIAL REPEAT SCREENING! Due to the great response and standing room
  only crowd for our first screening (and the bitter cold temperatures),
  we will be doing a special repeat screening of the video work of Kyle
  Canterbury. [This is a repeat of the February 3 show.] Chicago
  Filmmakers is extremely pleased to present the first one-person show
  (and first ever U.S. screening) of the work of Kyle Canterbury, an
  extraordinarily talented new experimental video artist who lives in
  Michigan. Canterbury has been making videos for only a little over a
  year, and his work is already some of the most exciting and dynamic film
  or video of any kind of the last decade or more. Oh, and he's only 17
  years old! Canterbury has developed a palette of techniques that
  emphasize the specificity and artistic potential of the video medium
  unlike anyone else. He uncovers a stunning array of textures, formal
  compositions, and rhythmic patterns in the normally flat video image.
  Fred Camper has written: "I do not think it is too grand to declare that
  Canterbury has done for video something like what Brakhage has done for
  film. In his hands, after less than a year of work, this medium, which
  so many have found severely limited, has become as supple, as pliable,
  as sensuous, and as rhythmically various, as film was for Brakhage."
  Canterbury will screen 24 short works, including 19: passage, A VIDEO,
  EVODI, and Fragments from a Room (all 2006). Visit Fred Camper's website
  for extensive commentary on Canterbury's work and ten of the videos
  screening: www.fredcamper.com/Film/Canterbury.html

 FILM ART PHENOMENA: WORKS BY NICKY HAMLYN, NICKY HAMLYN IN PERSON
  Composing his work "in camera," the films of Nicky Hamlyn incorporate
  each shooting's unique character, producing open-ended outcomes while
  questioning matter and perception. Quoting from his Film Art Phenomena
  (published 2003): "I see my films as arising out of an encounter between
  a situation or location or subject, and a camera/production strategy. I
  have been inspired partly by Robert Morris' reading of Jackson Pollock's
  paintings as resulting from the interactions of horizontal canvas, paint
  viscosity, stick, gravity, arm mechanics. Morris' behavioristic take on
  Pollock redeems it from an expressionistic reading." Screening:
  Minutiae, Hole, Not Resting, Pistrino, Water, Matrix, Penumbra, Object
  Studies, and Transit of Venus, which records two consecutive passes of
  Venus across the sun. (Caroline Savage)

  Footprints (1992, 6 min., b/w and color, 16mm) to The Highwater Trilogy

  floods and icebergs. The program also includes The Film of Her (1996, 12
  min., 35mm), in which archival footage is reinterpreted through
  fictional elements to evoke "an unrequited celluloid romance"; Light Is
  Calling (2004, 8 min, color, 35mm), widely recognized as a masterpiece;
  the exhilaratingly rhythmical Outerborough (2005, 9.5 min, 35mm); Ghost

  a series of brutal murders in the 1980s becomes a powerful portrait of a
  repressive society. Based on Korea's first serial killer case, this
  elegiac film offers a commanding sense of story and a tone balanced
  neatly between grim humor and tragic helplessness. (2003, 127 min)

  Memories, and introduce Barking Dogs; he will be in attendance for both
  features. 9:45 pm Barking Dogs Never Bite -- Bong's feature debut is a
  drily amusing, character-driven comedy about a lazy college lecturer
  driven to distraction by a constantly yipping dog. When he takes action
  against the annoying canine, a variety of friends and associates offer
  their own thoughts on the matter. (2000, 106 min) Tickets are on sale
  for both members and non-members at _www.sffs.org_ Separate admission
  for each film, $9 – SFFS members_ $10 - student/senior_ $11 – general
  Bong's latest film The Host sold out at the inaugural San Francisco

10 PM, Doors open at 9:30PM, Potsdamerstrasse 157, 10783 Berlin Schoeneberg

 70 CM
  The average westerner requires 70 centimeters of personal space in front
  of them. NewYorkRioToyko e.V. and Ex'n'pop are proud to present films
  exploring the domain of psychological personal space. The hour-long
  program includes the works of 9 experimental filmmakers from the United
  States, Israel and Germany. Personal space is often defined as the
  invisible borders people build for themselves. Within these films, the
  authors invite the viewer to cross and breakdown these borders, explore
  the delicate line, or exclude them as outside entities. Whether
  exploring a relationship to a hereditary disease, the landscape of a
  deserted construction site, or the relationship of two strangers, each
  work expresses the idea of simply being allowed to watch or being
  invited to get involved. 70cm includes works from internationally renown
  as well as up and coming artists: Diana Arce (USA), Bill Brand (USA),
  Sari Carel (Israel), Joel Devalcourt (USA), Joseph Dwyer (USA), Anne
  Haydock (USA), Jennifer Myers (USA), Corinna Schnitt (Germany), and

 "PAYSAGES LOINTAINS, PAYSAGES PROCHES (THE FRENCH SHOW, PT II)"
  After the international success of "La Lanterne Magique" (2005's Gallic
  kino-gala), vous amis at Magic Lantern are back in cahoots with the
  tenth annual Providence French Film Festival to bring you "Paysages
  Lointains, Paysages Proches" (that's "Landscapes Near and Far," for you
  non-French speakers out there). The seven francophone films featured in
  this remarkably diverse program share an increasingly global concern
  with Travel and States of Passage, in which the juxtaposition of
  multiple spaces (physical, emotional) is metaphorically linked to the
  act of editing itself. Don't worry about printing out your boarding
  pass, for that five-dollar bill is the only ticket you'll need - through
  intense flickers of light and sustained long takes, this program will
  take to you New York, Chicago, Avignon, Visegrad, Beijing and Beyond,
  all the while posing these increasingly pertinent questions: Que se
  divise ici de là? Quelle quantité de passé le présent peut-il porter?
  Comprenez-vous? No? Don't worry, you will... Featuring: Jours en Fleurs
  by Louise Bourque (4:30, 35mm, 2003), Un Pont sur le Drina by Xavier

 FOR FREDDIE: FREDDIE HERKO MEMORIAL EVOCATION
  For Freddie is an installation event evoking the dramatic life and death
  of Freddie Herko, an obscure artistic figure from the early 1960's.
  Herko was a founding member of the Judson Dance Theater and an early
  Warhol Factory character. He was a close friend of Diane Di Prima who
  wrote of him in her poetry and memoirs. The installation will feature an
  arrangement of documentary drawings, original music and a short
  publication. A rare 16mm copy of AndyWarhol's Haircut #1, starring
  Freddie Herko will be screened on March 7th at 7:30 PM. $6. Andy Warhol,
  Haircut #1 (1963) B&W/Silent/33 mins Freddy Herko, Billy Name, John
  Daley, James Waring The opening frames present three men standing in
  this space. In the middle distance is a dark young man with dark hair:
  It is Billy Linich [Name]. Nearer the camera is another man with a
  faintly more Wasp look. Nearest the camera, in the extreme foreground
  and brilliantly bathed by the key lamp, the most visible and conspicuous
  of the three, is a very nasty-looking type posing without a shirt
  [Freddy Herko]. He wears exhibitionistically tight, and very dirty,
  white jeans that glare a bit in the lens... Bluntly he looks like he
  knows 42nd Street... His face and body have the strungout wiriness,the
  tough, undernourished gracelessness of a slum escapee who survives on
  street food, on sausage sandwiches bought at greasy open-air stands, hot
  dogs, Pepsis, and amphetamines... -Stephen Koch More about the artists:

 SAUL LEVINE: NOTES FROM THE UNDERGROUND
  SAUL LEVINE IN PERSON! "Saul Levine is the foremost dissenting filmmaker
  in America," writes critic P. Adams Sitney. "With about 35 years of
  consistent production behind him, and no signs of fatigue, he can show
  us the shape of a life passionately and uncompromisingly devoted to
  filmmaking. His works are high-energy messages of friendship, records of

 A SOCIAL EVENT ARCHIVE: TEN-YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY
  In 1997, Paul Druecke, went door-to-door in Milwaukee neighborhoods
  inviting people to contribute one photo from their personal collection
  to his new project. This was the beginning of A Social Event Archive.
  The photos were archived in the order received and presented back to the
  public in exhibitions, books, and a website: ASOCIALEVENT.COM.
  Word-of-mouth helped spread the invitation across the country. The
  Archive holds over seven hundred photos in its collection.

 ALAN SONDHEIM PROGRAM
  Since 1983 the amazingly prolific Alan Sondheim has appeared at
  Millennium on a regular basis with substantial new works. This time the
  multi-talented media artist has come up with a highly erotic and
  controversial feature entitled CREPUSCLE (TWILIGHT) which stars the
  remarkable dancer, FOOWA d'IMOBILITE, along with AZURE CARTER and ALAN
  SONDHEIM. The program will include several short pieces shot in
  Switzerland. "CREPUSCLE (TWILIGHT) explores the exigencies of dance,
  eroticism, cultural restriction, and arousal; it was edited from over a
  dozen segments in Geneva. The work tenders the null-point of language, a
  point where words stutter, where the body takes over, where the cultural
  tropes are transformed and lost. It's the deliberate creation of
  repressed memories. It challenges the conventions of dance, turning
  dance inside-out. For the three of us, it's the culmination of an erotic
  element in our work that has all been lost in contemporary culture.
  CREPUSCLE rides the muscle of the body and jouissance, opening a
  territory which remains virtual, haunting. A number of short works with
  Foofwa, shot in Geneva, Gruyeres, and the Aletsch Glacier in the Swiss
  Alps, will also be shown." -Alan Sondheim

 DAVIS + DANIEL + DEUTSCH’S DEAD PEOPLE +
  Satisfying OC's wanderlust, here's a sublime survey of works that
  explore the country's southern margins, moving from West to East. Erik
  (Visionary State) Davis initiates our drift with a slideshow on Leonard
  Knight, Charles Manson, and other SoCal desert-rats. Prodigal son Bill
  Daniel floats back to Frisco, setting up his Sail-van right here on
  Valencia St., for "field" projections in the urban jungle! After
  Aptos–based Enid Blader shares her tone-poem on the Salton Sea, Sabrina
  Alonso shows her Mischief at 16th and Florida on the Hamms Brewery
  vat-rat squat, and Jenny Stark shuttles in from Sacto with her Floods,
  Ghosts, & Contamination, on turf issues in her home-state of Texas. Our
  passage pauses for a moment at New Orleans, where we honor the memory of
  recently-deceased Helen Hill—to whom this evening is dedicated—with a
  screening of her last composition from Katrina-damaged footage,
  accompanied by pieces from Thad Povey and Alfonso Alvarez. The final
  stop on the Southern arc takes us to the Mason–Dixon line and Roger
  Deutsch's (in person) deeply moving Dead People. $7.

 OPPOSITIONAL AND STIGMATIZED PROGRAM TWO: CINEMA OF SHOCK
  These films are shocking, appalling and transgress limits circumscribed
  by mainstream taste, morality, and commodifiable art practices. In Kurt
  Kren's 16/67: September 20th—Gunter Brus, we experience the intake and
  outflow of bodily fluids, via strange camera angles and editing. Jon
  Moritsugu's Mommy, Mommy, Where's My Brain? references AC/DC and Jacques
  Derrida in its attack of academic film theory. In Remote, Remote, Valie
  Export tortuously takes the act of self-mutilation to an extreme.
  Zock-Exercises by Otto Muehl, is an "Vienna Actioniste" collaborative
  project consisting of manifestos, films, and performances that,
  according to Muehl, has "no dread of chaos, rather it fears forgetting
  to annihilate something." Stan Brakhage's The Act of Seeing With One's
  Own Eyes inhibits the production of illusion by depicting corpses
  without explaining them or containing them within a narrative. Through
  framing and editing, the audience is confronted ceaselessly with the raw
  actuality of these cadavers. (Caroline Savage and Janis Crystal Lipzin)
