I know there's already been a post on here about Roger Beebe's full
55-date tour, but I'd also like to use this message to announce a new
group of folks based in Rochester, NY putting on monthly screenings
of experimental film at the Visual Studies Workshop. Our inaugural
screening is this Monday, October 15th at 7pm with Roger Beebe.
Tickets are $4.
To keep it brief, I'll just talk about the two most recent works to
be shown: TB TX DANCE (16mm) is a cameraless film made in a black &
white laser printer. B&W dots of vary sizes were printed on the
soundtrack edge of the film, providing a background for revisiting
Toni Basil's appearance in Bruce Conner's '68 film "Breakaway." S A V
E (16mm) is a study of a disused gas station, reflecting on the
decaying monuments of mom & pop capitalism as we stagger forward into
a new era.
Also on deck are (rock/hard place) (16mm); On Nation Under Tommy
(video); Famous Irish Americans (video); Composition in Red & Yellow
(super-8mm); A Woman, A Mirror (16mm); The Strip Mall Trilogy
If you can't make it out tomorrow night, keep an eye out for our
monthly series, continuing in November with SHOOT, SHOOT, SHOOT, a
two-night selection of key British experimental films from the 60s
and 70s curated by Mark Webber and distributed by LUX. To my
knowledge, this hasn't played much in the States, so for any folks in
the New York region, it will definitely be worth the drive out. More
info on that here.
For those who can make it to the screening tomorrow, here's a repeat
of the info:
Monday, October 15th
@ Visual Studies Workshop (31 Prince St)
7pm | $4
Thanks for watching,
-Douglas, Jason, Antonella
