For locals or travelers –
Fresh from what folks are already saying was a heated performance at Toronto's Images Festival, Greg Pope (UK/Oslo) visits Anthology on Thursday, April 10th at 7:30pm with a show of his short films and other surprises. Three evenings later, on Sunday, April 13th at 7pm, Brooklyn’s Issue Project Room (http://issueprojectroom.org/) hosts a 4-projector performance of his amazing piece LIGHT TRAP. Greg calls it a "live punk hommage" to Anthony McCall's LINE DESCRIBING A CONE. It has to be one of the most perfectly executed expanded cinema works I've encountered. Greg tackles this version with Barry Weisblat on electronics/sound and Joel Schlemowitz, Bradley Eros, Jeannie Liotta and myself alongside on projectors.
On Friday, April 11th at 7:30pm and 9:15pm the great Robert Breer will be at Anthology’s Courthouse Theater (the large one) to introduce two different shows of 35mm blow-up preservations that we completed in February. I’m stunned and wowed by the new dreamlike 35mm prints, as well as the four recent 16mm preservation of his earliest FORM PHASES films that will also screen. Colorlab handled the lab work, 20 titles in all, while The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the NEA valiantly supported our sizable undertaking. Both programs repeat on Saturday, April 12th at the same times, however Breer will only be on hand for the Friday evening shows. To take his place will be an episode of SCREENING ROOM featuring interviewee Breer and host Robert Garder that will screen at 5:45 on Saturday.
