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

  Curated by Gerry Fialka. PXL THIS is a festival that features videos
  produced using the PXL 2000, a plastic toy video camera that records
  sound and images directly onto audiocassettes. The PXL 2000 was
  available from 1987 to 1989 from Fisher-Price. The picture is comprised
  of 2,000 "pixels" as opposed to the 150,000 pixels seen on the average
  TV screen, which makes for a very grainy but appealing quality. PXL THIS
  organizer Gerry Fialka says, "PXL is the essential utensil of creation.
  The really creative artist does a lot with nothing. PXL THIS is based on
  the statements, 'It is literally possible to do more with less'
  -Buckminster Fuller and 'Film will only become art when its materials
  are as inexpensive as pencil and paper' -Jean Cocteau. It's a real
  pencil and paper mentality. Express yourself, and don't be afraid to
  break some rules. Like Cocteau said, "What one should do with the young
  is to give them a portable camera and forbid them to observe any rules
  except those they invent for themselves as they go along. Let them write
  without being afraid of making mistakes.' But PXL THIS is for all ages."
  Tonight's program features 14 shorts compiled from PXL THIS Film
  Festivals spanning 2003 to 2006 and includes the following works:
  Souvenir (Stephen Rose); Gestures (L.M. Sabo); Helen Possert: A WWII
  Rosie (Michael Possert); Somnigraphic Traces of the Otherwise
  Undocumented Friedkin Institute for Sleep Disorder Research (Struan
  Ashby & Roy Parkhurst); I'm in the Mood (Bryan Konefsky); About Flowers
  (Juniper Woodbury); Sleep (Doug Ing); Double-Duty Interrobang (Gerry
  Fialka); Fish (Joe Frese); PXL Manifesto (Ross Craig); Babblefesto #2
  (Steve Craig); A Stake to the Heart: The Last PXL Movie (Ross Craig);
  Rugrat (Lisa Marr); and Zero (Eli Elliott). Total running time: 89 mins.

Venice, CA: 7 Dudley Cinema
7pm, 6:30 pre-show, 7 Dudley Ave, Sponto Gallery

  THE FILMS OF DEAN SNIDER More heard of than seen outside San Francisco,
  the films of Dean Snider (1949-1994) are formally playful and richly
  possessed of character. Ultra-short and often self-mocking, Snider's
  abounding catalog is a bit confusing and almost always funny. Hard to
  compare with any other filmmaker, Snider's subversive stance and
  sardonic sense of humor enlivened his varied, quixotic films and
  real-life antics. He once staged a coup in the projection booth of the
  San Francisco Cinematheque, forcing a show of local films on the
  audience. On another occasion, with fellow cinema-activist Steve
  Schmidt, Snider literally hijacked an entire Cinematheque audience by
  bus and delivered them to a screening at the No Nothing Cinema, a
  now-legendary film/performance venue that he co-founded. Snider was
  known to pay a dollar to viewers who attended his shows, and as a judge
  at the Ann Arbor Film Festival he gave each and every festival-rejected
  filmmaker $3 of his prize money, igniting debate. Indisputably important
  and certainly overlooked, these films are nothing short of a revelation.
  "During his relatively short lifespan, Snider produced literally
  hundreds of films. Beyond filmmaking, his gadfly outbursts and
  philosophical provocations helped spark controversy and stimulate
  conceptual filmic border-crossings…. Film theorist Janice Crystal-Lipzin
  said of Dean's films, 'Why, the titles are longer than the films!' – no
  doubt referring to HEY!, a single frame of a bale of hay." -–V. Vale and
  Marian Wallace, RESEARCHPUBS.COM--- This program contains 17 of Snider's
  16mm and 35mm works, none of which are in distribution. A limited
  edition DVD set of Dean's work will also be available at all
  shows.--------- Organized and presented by Douglas Katelus.

  Sunday, September 14, 2008. 8 pm , doors at 7:30 pm $6 I Can See You
  Just Fine New Works by Jimmy Robson "I Just Saw a Scary Movie" by Jimmy
  Robson Who do we become when we watch a movie? Television? Sometimes
  when we sit down at the end of a hard day and watch a story unfold, we
  go a little too far into the life of another... This program features
  two new videos about characters and personas that are guilty of "TMI".
  The desperate people that appear in these movies are just waiting for
  the right moment to spill the beans to us. Each member of the audience
  becomes an enabler: we are implicated in these layered stories often by
  lending an ear to the characters in the videos who know that we are out
  there watching them. Touching upon the horror genre, these two videos
  also explore off-screen violence, questioning how terror both threatens
  and preserves the very screen upon which these movies appear. "The Face
  of Susan White" This video tells the story of a woman who is struggling
  to change. After watching a mysterious green fluid disrupt a morning
  news cast, Susan White finds she has a new power: the distance between
  herself and the outside world is suddenly abolished. Given this new
  perspective, Susan discovers that she is now able to transform her life.
  But when a figure from her past confronts her, everything is placed into
  jeopardy. 30 minutes, DV. WORLD PREMIER! "I Just Saw a Scary Movie" A
  fortune teller and her grandson become obsessed with a mysterious and
  morbid character, Jeff, who posts videos of himself on youtube. The
  story is told through a series ambiguous testimonials given by the
  family about their new obsession. Finally, when Jeff is given the chance
  to speak for himself and come clean, the story threatens to
  self-destruct. 22 minutes, DV.

  Monday, September 15, 2008. 7:30PM $6 Rough Cuts: American Maverick –
  The Life and Times of Pete McCloskey Rough Cuts is a series of
  work-in-progress documentary screenings that are produced every other
  month by The LAB. Each evening one rough cut of a feature-length
  documentary will be screened, followed by a moderated conversation about
  the film led by guests who are either accomplished filmmakers or
  established film professionals. Please RSVP to email suppressed
  by Monday, September 15 at noon. for info
  American Maverick – The Life and Times of Pete McCloskey Produced and
  Directed by Rob Caughlan At a time when the word "maverick" is
  increasingly heard this political season, it might be worth considering
  the life of Pete McCloskey—environmental crusader, politician, marine
  veteran, gadfly. As a presidential candidate, he led the charge to
  impeach President Nixon—before Watergate. As a Republican congressman,
  he co-founded the first Earth Day and co-authored the Endangered Species
  Act. And at age 78, he came out of retirement to wage one more
  unexpected, brave campaign. Narrated by Academy Award-winning actor Paul
  Newman, American Maverick - The Life and Times of Pete McCloskey offers
  an unexpected portrait of a true American character. Moderators -
  Michael Wilson and Natalie Zimmerman Michael Wilson and Natalie
  Zimmerman recently formed Social Satisfaction Media and made their first
  feature-length documentary, "Silhouette City," which premiered at the
  Miami International Film Festival. Wilson and Zimmerman's other projects
  have included performance new media, installation and photography, and
  they have exhibited/performed at festival, museums, galleries and art
  centers throughout the world. They are currently artists in residence at
  the Headlands Center for the Arts.


Hamilton Village: TIE
Evening, Colgate University

  experimental cinema. Uniquely curated and presented for Colgate
  University by TIE founder/director Christopher May, the program feature
  an eclectic range of TIE festival selections that illuminate the
  continuing vitality and beauty of celluloid, while subtle and at times
  obvious philosophical and thematic curatorial gestures conduct the flow
  of the programs. This edition includes 16mm films from Brakhage,
  Robinson, Dorsky and Sackl among others.

  7 DUDLEY CINEMA - films & live events at SPONTO Gallery, 7 Dudley Ave,
  Venice, 310-306-7330, free admission WED, Sept 17. DECLINE AND FALL
  ('07, 80m) at 7pm Erika Suderburg's (in person) experimental documentary
  about aerial bombing, reconstruction, mass protest, and monumentality.
  Spanning h istorical and present day images from Rome, Yucatsán, Berlin
  and Los Angeles her work examines empire; its artifacts, structures and
  collapse. Through archival footage of the bombing, aerial reconnaissance
  and rebuilding of WWII Berlin, contemporary footage of a 2.8 million
  person peace march in Rome at the start of the present war, a
  neighborhood candlelight vigil in Los Angeles, and astronomical events
  in and around Chichén Itz á in Yucatán, Mexico Decline and Fall
  decomposes the macro and micro movements of destruction, memorialization
  and everyday life. SOMATOGRAPHY ('00, 70m) at 9pm Suderburg's
  experimental documentary that examines the nature of storytelling in
  relation to queer and leftist Los Angeles. City, sexuality and politics
  serve as volatile sites of memory, history and defi nition which in turn
  interrogate the amnesiac constructions that we fabricate in order to
  navigate our internal and external environs. Through the nesting of
  categories and chosen topics, overlappings, frissions and "leads" to new
  stories, SOMATOGRAPHY speaks to the connective and disparate nature of
  "city" as defined through myriad voices, fanciful reconstructions, and
  uncanny connections.

  Edwards, a morse code music performance by Sarah Lockhart with Aurora
  Josephson and Suki O'Kane (SL Morse – "No Exit by Jean Paul Sartre"),
  and a video screening showing the work of Aygul Idiyatullina. How are
  contemporary artists dealing with issues of cultural complexity,
  multiple allegiances, and hybrid forms? How are they communicating these
  ideas and addressing their audience? Using the metaphor of
  "code-switching," a linguistic term referring to the use of more than
  one language within a single conversation, this juried exhibition
  investigates a variety of approaches to cultural and material
  bilingualisms, (mis)translations, appropriations, and the purposeful
  misuse of "proper" communication codes.


Chicago, Illinois: Conversations at the Edge
6pm, 164 N. State St.

  Curator Jon Satrom in person! What happens when the creative
  roadblocks—errors, glitches, accidents— become the building blocks in
  the art-making process? This program highlights artists who
  intentionally create problems by corrupting data, hacking signals, and
  manipulating the medium, often to the point of challenging its own
  display. Curated by new media artist and SAIC faculty member Jon Satrom,
  tonight's problem-ridden program gathers together films, videos,
  corrupted data, hacked TV broadcasts, interactive DVDs, and modified
  GameBoy tools that revel in failure, rejoice in errors, and celebrate
  the happy accident. Works include: 486 SHORT VIDEOS (LoVid, 2008); ATARI
  NOISE (Arcangel Constantini, 2000); BLINQ (Billy Roisz 2002); ENTER THE

  TAYLOR MEAD: A CLOWN UNDERGROUND Thu, Sep 18, Fri, Sep 19 & Sun, Sep 21,
  7:30 pm Taylor Mead in person Sep 18 & 19 Performer and poet Taylor Mead
  has starred in over 100 films and is a central figure in the history of
  underground cinema. Though best known for the films he made with Andy
  Warhol (including Lonesome Cowboys and Nude Restaurant), Mead has
  appeared in things as diverse as Saturday Night Live, Rip Torn's staging
  of Hamlet and Midnight Cowboy. Now over 80 years old, Mead's work has a
  mature innocence, and a celebration of (and longing for) peace and joy
  that is missing from so much contemporary art today. His performances
  often bring to mind Chaplin's "tramp" character. He now spends much of
  his time writing, doing poetry readings and feeding stray animals. Mead
  will make his first San Francisco appearance in decades. Thu, Sep 18,
  7:30 pm THE FLOWER THIEF BY RON RICE "In Ron Rice's baggy-pantsed
  beatnik artifact, Warhol superstar in training Mead traipses with elfin
  glee through a lost San Francisco of smoke-stuffed North Beach cafés,
  oceanside fairgrounds, and collapsed post-industrial ruins. Boinging
  along an improvised picaresque up and down the city's hills, Mead teases
  playground schoolkids, gets abducted by cowboys in the park, and has a
  tea party on a pile of rubble with a potbellied bathing beauty."
  -Village Voice (1960, 75 min, 16mm). Screening will be followed by a
  discussion and poetry reading with Mead. "The purest expression of the
  Beat sensibility in cinema." - P. Adams Sitney Fri, Sep 19, 7:30 pm
  LONESOME COWBOYS BY ANDY WARHOL Long before Brokeback Mountain there was
  Lonesome Cowboys, a homoerotic satire of the Western with a hilarious,
  raunchy co-starring role by Mead. Shot on location at a ranch in Arizona
  used previously for John Wayne movies, Warhol edited the film while
  recuperating from his gunshot wound. Also starring Viva and Joe
  Dallesandro. (1967-68, 109 min, 16mm) Followed by discussion with Mead.
  enjoyed any of the other Mead screenings, you won't want to miss this
  poignant documentary, which offers many insights into the life of this
  underground superstar. The film follows Mead through his eccentric daily
  life, and examines the complete history of his film and performance
  work. Narrated by Steve Buscemi. (2005, 98 min, digital video)

  THE ORDER OF THINGS Film program in the context of the exhibition with
  the same title at MuHKA, Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp (11th
  September 2008 > 4th January 2009). Curated by Stoffel Debuysere and
  María Palacios Cruz. # 19.09.2008: THE ORDER OF THINGS 2 DE/CODING
  Poetics of Collage A series of films in which found footage - submitted
  to various realignments, interruptions and interpolations - has been
  reorganized in a poetical form. How can putting together fragments of
  the world create new meanings, new ways of thinking, looking and
  listening? For what purposes were these images originally created and
  constructed, and what new vitality, force and desire might erupt by
  deconstructing them? How to connect elements distant in time and space,
  in an attempt to take a grasp on the world we live in, dig below and
  behind the surface, in search of the unspoken, the suppressed, the
  innate? 20:00 Abigail Child Surface Noise 2000, 16mm, colour, sound, 18'
  Abigail Child's complex audiovisual sonatas investigate, interrogate and
  interpret contemporary social realities; mainly the construction of
  gender identity and behaviour in public and private spaces. Deploying a
  number of strategies – vertical montage, asymptotic convergence, sound
  and noise juxtapositions – she recycles meaning out of the informational
  chaos and dismantles predetermined notions and narratives, drawing the
  attention to what happens in the margins, the gazes, poses and gestures
  we ourselves are hardly aware of. The sound montage was created in
  collaboration with New York musicians Zeena Parkins, Christian Marclay,
  Shelley Hirsch and Jim Black. Alan Berliner Everywhere at once 1985,
  16mm, colour, sound, 10' A musical montage, a synchronised symphony
  composed from an infinity of elements taken from Berliner's own personal
  archive of cultural artefacts and residues: piano cords and cable cars,
  cocktail jazz and broken glass, loony tunes and telephones, elephants
  and xylophones, violins and vultures, orchestras and roller coasters… A
  journey in images at the rhythm of sound. With this sort of "bricolage",
  Berliner attempts to bridge a wide range of poetic horizons: the actual
  with the possible, pre-history with science fiction, magic with science
  fact, the medium with the message. Frank & Caroline Mouris Frank Film
  1973, 35mm, colour, sound, 9' Frank Mouris's animated autobiography
  composed of more than 11.000 images collected from magazines and
  catalogues, which shift and mutate across the screen as Mouris recites a
  list of words beginning with the letter 'f'. The words bounce off the
  images and generate an associative flow of memories, which Mouris
  recounts on a second track, interwoven with the recitation. The result
  is an obsessive and mesmerizing collage, which film critic Andrew Sarris
  described as "a nine-minute evocation or America's exhilarating
  everythingness". This film won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short
  Film in 1973. Bruce Conner A Movie 1958, 16mm, b&w, sound, 12' The debut
  film of Bruce Conner, recently deceased, and an undeniable cornerstone
  in the art of collage filmmaking. Inspired by the surrealist poetry of
  zapping, the aesthetics of film trailers and the use of archive material
  in the Marx Brothers comedy Duck Soup, Conner spent many years working
  in what he would call a "universal film", the world reflected in a
  compendium of symbolic images from newsreel, fiction films, educational
  material and softcore porno. As Patricia Mellencamp has pointed out,
  it's "a history of cinema as catastophe" that "becomes the history of
  Western culture or the United States - a history of colonial conquest by
  technology, resolutely linking, sex, death, and cinema - questioning our
  very desire for cinema." Chick Strand Loose Ends 1979, 16mm, b&w, sound,
  25' A collage film about the process of internalizing the information
  that bombards us through a combination of personal experience and media
  in all forms. These fragmented images of life, sometimes shared by all,
  sometimes isolated and obscure, but with common threads, speed through
  our senses in large numbers and complicated mixtures of fantasy, dream
  and reality. Chick Strand leads us to a state of psychological entropy
  tending toward a uniform inertness … an insensitive lack of involvement
  in the 'condition humaine' and our own humanity. William Farley Tribute
  1986, 16mm, b&w, sound, 7' An affirmative vision of life and death, in
  memory of the artist's brother, built entirely out of archive images
  from the 1950's and 1960's – a ship launching, a tree falling, a woman
  dancing, …, impersonal subjects that become icons and metaphors for our
  most personal thoughts. Image after image emerge from darkness,
  reminding us of the purity and conflict that are always part of our
  collective experience of existence. The Music is by David Byrne. ** 81'
  22:30 Simon Pummell Bodysong 2003, 35mm, colour, sound, 83' Simon
  Pummell's first feature film is an epic story of love, sex, violence,
  death and dreams: the story of human life, told by means of an
  impressive collage of images from around the world and across 100 years
  of cinema history. A seemingly endless succession of fragments of silent
  films, newsreels, documentaries and home movies serves as a meditation
  on the micro and macroscopical order of people's lives. The hypnotic
  soundtrack is by Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood. An interactive version of

  Widmer. Additional programs on Sept. 12 and 26. Visiting Artist Jon
  Phillips on Sept. 19. "The myth of sole authorship is perpetuated
  throughout contemporary culture. With the mass popularization of remix
  culture through YouTube videos, inexpensive media production software,
  and cheap broadband, anyone can chop audio samples, blend multiple
  sources of video, globally broadcast mixes, and more easily access and
  create works collaboratively. But what is so broad about the band, and
  who or what is in the band? And, if no content in these broad pipes is
  new, is there some proximity of originality between works so that some
  may be considered more original than others? How does this play out in
  the global and art economies? While not rehashing obvious connections to
  the previous art histories of collage, appropriation and now remix, this
  program will actively analyze the state of remix culture and mashups and
  question whether they are sustainable cultural software that has the
  potential to run continuously, evolve, and further expand into the
  mainstream of contemporary art. Videos will be shown from the vast
  Internet archive collection, YouTube, and other sources from around the
  world. Also, the implications of copyright law and piracy on the state
  of art as commodity and a critical look at future sustainable models of

  TAYLOR MEAD: A CLOWN UNDERGROUND Thu, Sep 18, Fri, Sep 19 & Sun, Sep 21,
  7:30 pm Taylor Mead in person Sep 18 & 19 Performer and poet Taylor Mead
  has starred in over 100 films and is a central figure in the history of
  underground cinema. Though best known for the films he made with Andy
  Warhol (including Lonesome Cowboys and Nude Restaurant), Mead has
  appeared in things as diverse as Saturday Night Live, Rip Torn's staging
  of Hamlet and Midnight Cowboy. Now over 80 years old, Mead's work has a
  mature innocence, and a celebration of (and longing for) peace and joy
  that is missing from so much contemporary art today. His performances
  often bring to mind Chaplin's "tramp" character. He now spends much of
  his time writing, doing poetry readings and feeding stray animals. Mead
  will make his first San Francisco appearance in decades........... Thu,
  Sep 18, 7:30 pm THE FLOWER THIEF BY RON RICE "In Ron Rice's
  baggy-pantsed beatnik artifact, Warhol superstar in training Mead
  traipses with elfin glee through a lost San Francisco of smoke-stuffed
  North Beach cafés, oceanside fairgrounds, and collapsed post-industrial
  ruins. Boinging along an improvised picaresque up and down the city's
  hills, Mead teases playground schoolkids, gets abducted by cowboys in
  the park, and has a tea party on a pile of rubble with a potbellied
  bathing beauty." -Village Voice (1960, 75 min, 16mm). Screening will be
  followed by a discussion and poetry reading with Mead............. Fri,
  Sep 19, 7:30 pm LONESOME COWBOYS BY ANDY WARHOL Long before Brokeback
  Mountain there was Lonesome Cowboys, a homoerotic satire of the Western
  with a hilarious, raunchy co-starring role by Mead. Shot on location at
  a ranch in Arizona used previously for John Wayne movies, Warhol edited
  the film while recuperating from his gunshot wound. Also starring Viva
  and Joe Dallesandro. (1967-68, 109 min, 16mm) Followed by discussion
  with Mead........ Sun, Sep 21, 7:30 pm EXCAVATING TAYLOR MEAD BY WILLIAM
  A. KIRKLEY If you enjoyed any of the other Mead screenings, you won't
  want to miss this poignant documentary, which offers many insights into
  the life of this underground superstar. The film follows Mead through
  his eccentric daily life, and examines the complete history of his film
  and performance work. Narrated by Steve Buscemi. (2005, 98 min, digital

  Expressions Gallery's Visual Music series presents ExoTV: Enigmatic
  Vision, Improvised electro-acoustic music with kinetic ambient
  animations by Mika Pontecorvo (Flute, Live electronic processing/Max
  MSP) and Adriane Pontecorvo (Cello). 7:00 PM, Saturday, September 20 at
  Expressions Gallery, 2035 Ashby Avenue, Berkeley, (Near Ashby BART
  Station). Free; 510-644-4930, Contact: Loren
  Means, email suppressed The performance will include excerpts from
  movements entitled BLIPVERT/SUBVERT (Due), CHOREO (Qua), and a full
  performance of the movement AQUA (Tre). These are early results of a
  Kinetic Ambient Fiction Engine Architecture (KAFEA) being
  designed/developed by Mika with Neal Elzenga. The performance utilizes
  source imagery from the artwork of Artist/Writer Professor Meg Schoerke
  of San Francisco State University. The KAFEA system is a follow-on from
  Pontecorvo and Elzenga's earlier generative meta-design concepts
  entitled 'Arties', first presented at the AISB'99 Symposium on Creative
  Evolutionary Systems in Edinburgh, UK in 1999 and refined for the
  Generative Arts '99 Conference in Milan that same year. Mika studied
  composition with and worked as an assistant under the electronic music
  pioneer Vladimir Ussachevsky. Mika's other work includes Research and
  Development in artificial intelligence, virtual environments, and
  interactive media. Most recently this research has focused on the
  application of simulated evolutionary systems and other Complex Adaptive
  Systems (CAS) concepts to design, arts, and product ideation. Adriane's
  Cello work began with performing live improvised film scores in an
  arabic-jazz-psychedelic fusion band in 2004. She has performed in a
  number of noise and experimental rock units since that time. They are
  both currently members of the experimental ensembles Cartoon Justice and

  CD.16 mins. Recorded live at Plasy Monastery, Czech Republic. June 1999.
  Nicolas Collins, electronics, George Cremsachi, double bass. A
  self-stabilizing network of circuitry nudges the pitch of audio feedback
  to a different resonant frequency every time the feedback starts to
  build. The familiar shriek is replaced with unstable patterns of hollow
  tones, a site-specific raga reflecting the acoustical personality of the
  room. These architectural melodies can be influenced by moving in the
  space, making other sounds, or even by letting in a draft of cold air.
  CLOUDS. JENNY OKUN. 1975, Colour, 3 Minutes. 16mm silent.This film
  contrasts the concepts of relative motion and absolute motion. The speed
  and direction of the car and clouds, the spiralling motion of the
  camera, and the stationary factory chimneys all combine to produce the
  illusion of space within the frame. STILL LIFE. JENNY OKUN. 1976,
  silent, colour, 6 mins, 16mm silent. Still Life explores the
  transformation of an image from colour negative to colour positive on
  one film stock. The still life was painted its colour negative during
  filming and then the exposed film was processed and then printed on
  colour negative printstock. PEDAGOGUE. NEIL BARTLETT and STUART
  MARSHALL. 1988, 10mins, video. A short performance to camera by solo
  performer/dramatist Neil Bartlett. Pedagogue explores in comic style the
  possible implications of Clause 28. Through Clause 28, the British
  Government took powers to outlaw the 'promotion of homosexuality' in
  education and local government. THREE PIECES PERFORMED AT THE ROBERT

  the Robert Self Gallery. PIECES I NEVER DID. DAVID CRITCHLEY. 1979, 35
  mins, DVD. "Talking to camera, I described ideas that had never got
  beyond a note in a sketchbook. Paradoxically, I was able to resurrect on
  video these items of personal performance that had been edged out by the
  structuralism of early video art, such as shouting the words "Shut Up!"
  until I lost my voice, having objects thrown at me until I changed
  colour, and proposing to end the piece by blowing myself up. I intended
  the piece to be colourful and action packed -". IDIOPHONICS. STUART

  With Filmmaker Kirthi Nath in Person! Co-Presented by 3rd I. Kirthi Nath
  is an award winning South Asian filmmaker, writer, educator and curator.
  As an artist, her body of inspired creative work fluidly straddles
  genres, occupying a fertile hybrid landscape of cultural poetics,
  experimentalism, and hybrid narrative. Tactile and dreamlike, her work
  explores female subjectivity, memory, desire, and racial and sexual
  identities. Nath's films have shown in several festivals and events
  including a solo show at The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Moondance
  International Women's Festival, San Francisco Asian American Film
  Festival, Berkeley Women of Color Festival and Ladyfest (Olympia,
  Scotland, Bay Area and Texas). As an educator, Kirthi teaches video at
  the Bay Area Video Coalition to marginalized youth communities and is
  constantly exploring multiple ways of empowering young people to become
  both producer and audience; to understand genre and go beyond it.
  Screening this evening are the short films Embrace It (2007); Come On,
  Big Empty (2006); Letting Go (2005); By the By (2004); The To Do List
  Confession (2001); Incarnation (1999); 2:38 (1999); and Yours (1999).

TIE Retrospective: The Shivering Eyelash: TIE
8:PM, Aurora Picture Show

  X-Ray Film I - The Alimentary System (Fleisch Archive, 1936, 16mm,
  silent, 11 min., 22fps, Germany) This is the first of several of Prof.
  Robert Janker's x-ray films. The filmmaker was a pioneer of x-ray
  cinematography. The film was first featured in a TIE-2005 festival
  program that showcased educational films that were made during the Third
  Reich in Germany. Un Chant D'Amour (Jean Genet, 1950, 16mm, silent,
  23min., 24fps, France) One of the most memorable avant-garde films ever
  made, Un Chant D'Amour is also one of the most controversial. Made by
  the famed writer, Jean Genet, it features uncensored, sensual,
  jail-house scenes. Two prisoners in complete isolation, separated by the
  thick brick walls, and desperately in need of human contact, devise a
  most unusual kind of communication. Spectator(Frans Zwartjes, 1970,
  16mm, optical sound, 11min., 24fps, Netherlands) Hidden safely behind
  his camera, the photographer can't get enough of what the glamorous
  model, with her long eye lashes, has to offer him. The Secret
  Cinema(Paul Bartel, 1968, 16mm, optical sound, 30min., 24fps, USA) The
  Secret Cinema is a black-comic tale of a woman whose fears that her life
  is being filmed for the entertainment of her friends turn out to be
  true. The film presaged the sardonic tone of most of the maker's later
  work (Eating Raoul), though he would mostly abandon The Secret Cinema's
  experimental aspects in favor of linear narratives with perverse


Chicago, Illinois: White Light Cinema
7:00pm, The Nightingale (1084 N. Milwaukee Ave.)

  With Michelle Citron in Person! White Light Cinema and The Nightingale
  are pleased to co-present a special screening of Michelle Citron's
  feminist classic Daughter Rite (1978, 53 mins., 16mm), in its 30th
  anniversary year. Daughter Rite is of the key films from the 1970s
  alternative film scene – a time when feminism, theory, progressive
  politics, queer issues, and a general sense of questioning of
  experimental, documentary, and narrative norms were all being felt.
  Daughter Rite combines many of these concerns to create a fascinating
  and influential hybrid, a genre-bending film that remains a vibrant and
  timely exploration of reality and fiction 30 years after it was made.
  "Daughter Rite is a classic, the missing link between the 'direct
  cinema' documentaries and the later hybrids that acknowledged truth
  couldn't always be found in front of a camera lens. Scandalous in its
  day for bending the rules of representation to enlighten its audience
  about filmmaking, Daughter Rite has a lot to teach folks hooked on
  reality TV, too. Citron's documentary inquiries into feminism, women in
  the trades, and feminist approaches to media representation are time
  capsules that merit re-opening." (B. Ruby Rich, author of Chick Flicks:
  Theories and Memories of the Feminist Film Movement). Michelle Citron is
  an award-winning media artist whose work includes Daughter Rite and What
  You Take For Granted… (films), and As American As Apple Pie, Cocktails &
  Appetizers, and Mixed Greens (CD-ROMs). She is the author of the
  prize-winning book, Home Movies and Other Necessary Fictions, and she's
  received grants from the NEA, NEH, and Illinois Arts Council. She is
  Chair of the Department of Interdisciplinary Arts, Columbia College,
  Chicago. Admission: $7.00-10.00, sliding scale.
