Magic Lantern Presents "The Crowd Show"To: (address suppressed) Lantern Presents "The Crowd Show"(curated by Paige Sarlin)Wednesday the 9th of May at 9:30pmat the Cable Car Cinema, 204 S Main, Providence, RIFILM SCHOLAR ALICE LOVEJOY IN PERSON!!!!Focusing on the crowd as a figure and force of modernity, this evening will feature protests and parades, funerals and football. These films chart a progression from 1893 to 2006 and trace how the look, purpose and direction of media have changed along with the crowd. Meditating on the movement of history, this show considers what it means for large groups of people to come together in front of a camera and how images of crowds work to represent the emotional and political power of both human cooperation and antagonism. Alice Lovejoy, expert on all things Czechoslovakian will be here to introduce two of the films. The other films include one 35mm film from Magic Lantern founder Ben Russell, a recent video piece by the legendary avant garde filmmaker Ken Jacobs, a hilarious Animal-Cam Video by Sam Easterson, some archival films from England at the turn of the century, an activist video from the New Orleans based no-tv collective founder Mary Beth Black, and an example of explicitly political structuralist filmmaking from Saul Levine. So come down and join the crowd, the audience, that is, and you can experience the sights and sounds of people (and the sheep).FEATURING: Surging Sea of Humanity by Ken Jacobs (11:00, video, 2006), Sheffield United v.
