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

  Curated and Hosted by Heather McAdams "I have always wanted to project
  an entire reel of my 16mm Television commercials non-stop on one big
  reel and I finally I get to do just that! I love the concept of
  projecting these TV ads on a big screen and completely out of context.
  No longer on a tiny TV set in your home, these now-dated ads take on a
  different life and are surreal, interesting, hilarious and even
  educational as they become strangely transparent in their attempts to
  push their products on children and smokers. Included in tonight's
  thrilling program will be a variety of toy, doll, and cigarette
  commercials including: Candy Fashion Doll, Carter's Little Pills, Mad
  Cap Molly, Baby Know It All, Rudy the Robot, Close n Play, Big Burger
  Grill, Sea Wees, Amsco's Magic Bottle, Honey Comb Cereal, Sugar Pops,
  Quisp, Ultra Brite, KFC, Noxema (w/ Joe Namath), Borax (w/ Ronald
  Reagan), Dodge Car (w/ the Lennon Sisters), Cover Girl (w/ a young Cybil
  Sheperd), Diet Pepsi, Give A Show Projector, Spiderman Webmaker, Kool,
  Winston + Pall Mall Cigarettes, Grape Nuts (w/ Euell Gibbons) just to
  name a few! Also included will be sexy Ricky Nelson singing (the legend
  James Burton on guitar) from the Ozzie + Harriet TV Show, a Lennon
  Sisters song clipped from The Lawrence Welk Show, a Ted Mack's Amateur
  Hour act + lots more! Bring your friends, your pillow and settle in for
  a wacky nostalgic evening of great shorts ... when Television was more
  fun, funny + funky!" –Heather McAdams Curator Heather McAdams and her
  always-entertaining husband Chris Ligon will be present to introduce the
  show and answer any of your questions.

London, England: Goethe-Institut London
4.30pm, Goethe-Institut London, 50 Princes Gate, Exhibition Road, London SW7 2PH

  Ute Aurand (Berlin) and Peter Todd (London) will present Into View, a
  two-programme film dialogue, at the Goethe-Institut London on Saturday
  7th June. Each taking the other's work as a point of departure, they
  have created highly evocative programmes relating their own work to
  rarely screened films by artists such as Robert Beavers, Stan Brakhage,
  Storm De Hirsch, Marie Menken, Hans Richter, Annabel Nicolson, and
  Margaret Tait. Both artist filmmakers as well as curators, Ute Aurand
  and Peter Todd have been involved in an ongoing exchange about film.
  Into View is their record of this dialogue for which they selected films
  by the other and combined them with works from collections in their
  respective home cities, LUX in London and The Friends of the German
  Kinemathek (FDK) in Berlin. The process of selection is both an
  exploration of themes and a reflection on each other's work and practice
  in the context of older and more recent artists films. For both
  filmmakers the experimental approaches developed in the 1960s have been
  influential. Ute Aurand, who's film In die Erde gebaut (Building Under
  Ground) (Germany 2008) was screened as part of Forum Expanded at this
  year's Berlin Film Festival, and who organised the famous 'Filmsamstag'
  screenings, will present work from The Friends of the German Kinemathek
  (FDK) collection in Berlin. Peter Todd, who's work includes the Margaret
  Tait international touring programme for LUX and the Basement Basement
  programme for the Rotterdam Film Festival 2008, will present work from
  LUX collections in London. The event takes place as part of All Power to
  the Imagination! 1968 at Its Legacies. Programme Details London – Berlin

  EVERGREEN (15 min.-2005), QUALITIES OF STONE (11 min.-2006), RING (12
  min.-2007), SPIRIT HOUSE (11 min.-2008) and other works to be announced.
  Robert Todd, who has worked mostly in 16mm, will be having his first
  one-person program at Millennium. On RING - "A menagerie of the
  nearby-currents through and around the secret darkness within and about
  us. The shifting depths move toward a shadow-ripened luminous clarity."
  - R.T. On Spirit House - "A tale of 2 passages within the Spirit House.
  This is the first in a series that looks at the places we find our
  spiritual presence augmented, inflamed, or simply acknowledged." - R.T.
  "Robert Todd has been making short films in the Boston area since 1990.
  His visually stunning body of work, not easily defined or categorized,
  comes from a deeply personal place, which is quiet, thoughtful, and
  curious. The films take a variety of poetic approaches to looking at the
  personal, political, and social ways in which we choose to live." -

Weimar, Germany: Heinrich Böll Stiftung Thüringen
17:00, Bauhaus Universität Weimar, Marienstraße

  "zwischen | stadt | raum" at Bauhaus University Weimar. :::::: Invited
  by Heinrich Böll Stiftung Thüringen, and during "Arena der Zukunft -
  Urbangrün" (Futur Arena: Urban Green), Klaus W. Eisenlohr and Johann
  Zeitler will present and discuss their three channel video project.
  ::::: zwischen | stadt | raum shows the urban space of this 70's
  residential area in Berlin, and presents talks and many different
  point-of-views of residents, activists and youths about how they see
  places and space in Gropiusstadt. Surprisingly, a rather positive
  perception of the very green urban space and a strong identification
  with the area are being shown by the majority of people from
  Gropiusstadt. Impressions taken with video and still camera add to a
  complex and colorful portrait of this place, planned by and named after
  Walter Gropius, modernist architect avant-la-lettre. The artists Klaus
  W. Eisenlohr and Johann Zeitler recorded the images and interview during
  a two week residency at "Pilotproject Gropiusstadt" in summer 2006.

Berlin, Germany: Kino Arsenal
19:30, Kino Arsenal

  Into View - a two programme dialogue. 22 short films between 1926 and
  2005 selected by Ute Aurand (Berlin) and Peter Todd (London). Both Ute
  Aurand and Peter Todd are filmmakers and curators. That inspired them to
  create "A two programme dialogue". For each programme they have chosen
  three works by the other and selected films to screen with them. All
  selected films are short and more poetic than narrative or documentary -
  often they are just an observation, or a glimpse of feelings, thought or
  memory, brought into view. Many, without sound. "Ute and I met through
  interest in the films of Margaret Tait. Now I looked for films which
  would echo, comment, explore the ideas and possibilities offered by
  Ute's films and the programme opens with her film "Umweg" (Detour) from
  1981. Works I've chosen with include those by Annabel Nicolson, Storm De
  Hirsch, Jenny Okun, Margaret Tait, Jonas Mekas and Stan Brakhage. There
  will be a chance to see rarely screened films which only 'exist' when
  projected. And screening 16mm films increasingly feels like a political
  act. The dialogue continues." Peter Todd "Peter's films led me to other
  films which also consciously refuse any definiton. This strong quality
  of openness in his films creates the thread for my selection: it brought
  me from Peter's "For You" to Barry Gerson, whose subtle images trust
  alone to Seeing, to Hans Richter in 1926 and his cascade of visual
  ideas, to Marie Menken with her expressive movements and camera rhythms,
  to Renate Sami's inner beauty, to Bruce Conner's dreamy montage of found
  footage and Anita Thacher's reading of a poem in a 1 minute film. Robert
  Beavers builds with color and rhythme three visual self reflections, the
  photographer Jeannette Muñoz looks simply and directly and reaches far,
  and Theo Thiesmeier's montage creates - with the little help of a song -
  happiness." Ute Aurand

Brooklyn, New York: Light Industry
8 PM, 55 33rd Street, 3rd Floor

  Curated by Sabrina Gschwandtner Handcraft--absorbing, obsessive,
  mysterious, political, communal and mythical--is the subject of these
  documentaries, which range from exhaustively researched to casually
  recorded and even imagined. Works include: Kusama's Self-Obliteration,
  Yayoi Kusama/Jud Yalkut, 16mm, 1964, 24 mins The film was conceived as a
  portrait of the Yayoi Kusama and her work of two decades, and a
  progressively involving and engrossing experience that could possibly
  project the viewer into the screen. When This You See..., Elaine
  Reichek, video, 1998, 17 mins Nine appropriated film clips from sources
  such as Heavenly Creatures (1994) and Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) show
  women stitching. Each segment reveals a dramatic moment in the movie's
  story, and then ends with a freeze-frame over which the artist
  superimposes a single word, cataloging the act ("betrayal,"
  "revolution," "revenge," etc) each woman's handcraft symbolizes. Odd
  Fellows, Alee Peoples, Super-8 to video, 2006, 5 mins A short
  documentary on the Odd Fellows, a fraternal order begun in England as an
  offshoot of the Masons. Paracas, Cecilia Vicuña, 16mm to video, 1993, 18
  mins Conceived as a visual and sound poem in seven scenes, this
  animation of a 2,000 year-old textile now in the collection of the
  Brooklyn Museum invites entrance into a different visual and sonic
  space. The textile, interpreted here as a celebration of the Thread of
  Life, was constructed in a sculptural, three-dimensional looping
  technique developed by the ancient artists of the Paracas/Nazca region
  of Peru. Handmade Nation: The Rise of DIY Art, Craft and Design, Faythe
  Levine, video, 20 mins (excerpt from the feature film to be released
  2009) A documentary exploring the rise of DIY art, craft, and design in
  the United States. The heart of this new wave of creativity is the
  community, which is equally influenced by traditional handiwork, modern
  aesthetics, politics, feminism and art. The screening will be followed
  by a Q&A session with Faythe Levine, Elaine Reichek and Cecilia Vicuña.
  Edibles will be available from Sweet Tooth of the Tiger, a renegade
  bakery project that explores a nostalgia for the bake sale through the
  performance of social engagement over sugary confections.

8:00p.m., 406 chelsea st

  Jane is a high school student who works at the local arthouse movie
  theater who learns about life, love, masturbation and sex. Especially
  sex. 1997 16mm 90min "I fell for Mary Jane's Not a Virgin Anymore, a
  first feature that's as awkward, raucous and eager as its protagonist."
  - Amy Taubin, Village Voice "All teen movies should be as realistic as
  this semi-autobiographical journey into the joys and horrors of
  adolescence." Christina Kelly, Bust Before the screening of Mary
  Jane…(regrettably Jacobsen's last film) we will have two crunchy gems
  from the basement of a former worker at the George Eastman House. One is
  titled THE BABYSITTER and the other if my memory serves, THE GROCER'S
  BOY…These two shockingly naughty and frank shorts that are struggling to
  hang on to it's celluloid base will be enhanced by you the audience.
  Each member will be handed a instrument or other noise maker to create a
  collective and cacaphonous soundtrack for each of these
  groundbreaking(?) works.

London, England: Goethe-Institut London
7pm, Goethe-Institut London, 50 Princes Gate, Exhibition Road, London SW7 2PH

  Daddy and Lili Marlene + Meet You in Denver, "I think that all of this
  history is typically viewed only through the lens of power-politics, and
  the individual histories of people get lost. This series of films gives
  us a rare chance to enter and perhaps better understand particular
  moments in history."(Jan Sikl for Radio Prague) Award-winning Czech
  director Jan Sikl, will be in London to introduce two documentaries from
  his series 'Private Century' in a collaboration between the Czech Centre
  and the Goethe-Institut London. Strikingly vivid, yet melancholy, these
  atmospheric films offer an intimate view of the hopes and tragedies of
  those who lived through the upheavals of 20th Century Czechoslovakia.
  With great sensitivity to the footage and an obvious affection for the
  people portrayed in it, Sikl has edited the often stunning material from
  private collections to reconstruct personal histories whilst evoking a
  bigger historical picture. These films draw us into a world that seems
  innocent and remote, but at the same time very tangible and real. Jan
  Sikl is one of the Czech Republic's most prominent documentary makers
  and has made a large number of films for Czech television. He graduated
  from the FAMU film school in 1984 and after working as director of the
  Prague Short Film Entreprise, started his own film company Pragafilm in
  1991. DADDY AND LILI MARLENE, Czech Republic 2005, 52mins. Eva
  recollects her happy memories of a Velichovky farmstead on the
  Czech-German border and her parents – the caring Daddy and beautiful but
  selfish Lili. An insight into relationships within the family and the
  village during the war and the turmoil that comes with the arrival of
  communism. MEET YOU IN DENVER, Czech Republic 2007, 52mins. Frantisek is
  obsessed with the westerns his father shows in their cinema. When the
  nationalisation of the Czechoslovakian film industry robs them of the
  cinema and the films they love, Frantisek and his cousin Ferda start to
  shoot their own westerns. In 1968 he decides to emigrate to follow his
  dreams and to see all the places he heard about as a child. TICKETS: £3
  (Double Bill £5)

London, England: Tate Modern
7pm, Bankside, SE1 9TG

  The first event in a special weekend presentation of the work of Tony
  Conrad at Tate Modern features minimal cinema with maximal effect. Few
  films provide the intense, stroboscopic viewing experience of THE
  FLICKER, a non-objective film composed only of opaque and clear frames,
  and a pulsing electronic soundtrack. Conrad's cinematic debut still
  astounds audiences four decades after its creation, and will be screened
  together with other works exploring audio-visual harmonics and the
  radical production processes of cooked and electrocuted films. This
  lecture-screening will be introduced by Tony Conrad himself. Includes
  THE FLICKER (1966, 30 min), CURRIED 7302 (1973, 2 min), 7302 CREOLE
  (1973, 1 min), ELECTROCUTED 4-X (SECOND SERIES) (1974, 10 min), FILM
  OPTICALS (1975, 10 min excerpt), STRAIGHT AND NARROW (Beverly & Tony
  Conrad, 1970, 10 min). Followed by a drinks reception to celebrate the
  publication of "Beyond the Dream Syndicate: Tony Conrad and the Arts
  after Cage" by Branden W. Joseph (Zone Books/MIT).

London, England: Tate Modern
10pm, Bankside, SE1 9TG

  This major new live performance by Tony Conrad is specially conceived
  for the latent sound and immense scale of the Turbine Hall. Emerging
  from an installation inspired by the hum of the former power station's
  one remaining generator, Conrad's sonic and visual feast will
  incorporate an amplified string quartet, electric drill and motors,
  phonograph arms, film projection and shadows which loom high above the
  audience. This event is FREE but advance booking is recommended. Book by
  telephone 020 7887 8888, email or online at

London, England: Tate Modern
7pm, Bankside, SE1 9TG

  Tony Conrad investigates the conditions of video production and
  presentation in a series of tapes which deconstruct or re-appropriate
  the techniques of TV. Exploiting the reflexive nature of the medium, he
  critiques the electronic image and notions of history, theory and
  authority with an irreverent sense of humour. Postmodernism was never
  this much fun! Includes CONCORD ULTIMATUM (1977, 10 min excerpt),
  REDRESSING DOWN (1988, 18 min), IPSO FACTO (1985, 7 min), LOOKERS (1984,
  4 min excerpt), EGYPT 2000 (1986, 13 min), NO EUROPE (1990, 13 min),
