Berlin, Germany: Directors Lounge
8:30 pm, Z-Bar, Bergstr. 2, Berlin-Mitte, Germany

  Directors Lounge Summer Screenings *** Oliver Whitehead from Helsinki,
  who recently showed his work in a retrospective at Cartes Flux Festival
  in Espoo/Helsinki, comes to Berlin to show his work at Z-Bar. *** Oliver
  Whitehead has explored a wide range of fields within arts, such as
  drawing, painting, photography, computer imaging, film, video,
  installation, and sound – stretching their expressive possibilities, and
  without respecting boundaries. He thus may be called a "true media
  artist". In his early film work, he was influenced by the uprising
  Film-Coop movement in England and the French Nouvelle Vague. He however
  stopped making films when coming to Helsinki in 1970, where he since has
  worked as artist, and partly at Kuva Academy, the Academy of Fine Arts
  in Helsinki. In 1991, he has picked up with film and video again, now
  exploring his personal and built surrounding in most unorthodox ways.

New York, New York: Anthology Film Archives
7:00 & 9:00, 32 Second Avenue (at Second Street)

  Dir: Trent Harris. "THE BEAVER TRILOGY is so perfect, so odd, and so
  affecting that you feel you're in the presence of a minor miracle or
  some strange form of beatitude. THE BEAVER KID documents an encounter
  Harris had in 1980, in the alien state of Utah, with a young man who
  adores and impersonates Olivia Newton-John. THE BEAVER KID #2 is the
  fantastic restaging, a year later, of this poignant and bizarre tale;
  unbelievably and gloriously, it stars a young Sean Penn, only months
  removed from his early career-making role in FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT
  HIGH. In the climactic episode, THE ORKLY KID, shot in 1985, querulous
  clown prince Crispin Glover inhabits the coveted title role. THE BEAVER
  TRILOGY is almost too good to be true, and much too good to have been
  made up." -NEW YORK VIDEO FESTIVAL. "Trent Harris's BEAVER TRILOGY is a
  set of three short pieces that culminates in the underground tape-traded
  classic THE ORKLY KID… The trilogy as a whole is a stunning and complex
  exercise, an elaborate karaoke-upon-karaoke that snaps right into place
  with contemporary obsessions with celebrity, fame and media." -Ed

New York, New York: Rififi
10 PM, 332 E. 11 St bet 1 & 2nd Ave

  The World premiere screening of Nick Zedd and Neon Music's video FILTHY
  RICH precedes a live set by the latter and a retrospective of

  underground films, who will later DJ an eclectic mix of unexpected aural
  gems. Free admission.
