Berlin, Germany: 48-STUNDEN-NEUKÖLLN
23:00–03:00 (11pm through 3am), Passage Kino, Karl-Marx-Straße 131, 12043 Berlin-Neukölln

  The major theme of 48-STUNDEN-NEUKÖLLN, the annual art festival in the
  Berlin borough of Neukölln, is the relations of city–nature–man.
  Consequently, the term urbanity became an essential aspect of this
  year's programming for the Long Film Night. The selection was drawn from
  direct submissions and in collaboration with interfilm and the Urban
  Research Program. The Long Film Night presents a three hours program of
  short narrative, experimental and documentary films. °*--*° Interfilm as
  a film distribution offers ca. 300 films for rentals. Theme oriented
  short film programs and programme pictures are the main focus of the
  program. In addition, the nerve centre at Tempelhofer Damm organizes the
  annual short film festival interfilm. °*--*° Urban Research brings
  together films of artists who work with experimental and documentary
  means on issues of urbanity and public space. Since 2005, Klaus W.
  Eisenlohr is dedicated to this program and selection as part of the
  contemporary art and media platform Directors Lounge. °*--*°°*--*°

New York, New York: Anthology Film Archives
5:00pm, 32 second Avenue

  SENSELESS 1962, 28 minutes, 16mm "Consisting of a poetic stream of
  razor-sharp images, the overt content of SENSELESS portrays ecstatic
  travelers going to pot over the fantasies and pleasures of a trip to
  Mexico...highly effective cutting subtly interweaves the contrapuntal
  development of themes of love and hate, peace and violence, beauty and
  destruction." –David Brooks THE FLOWER THIEF 1960, 59 minutes, 16mm.
  Preserved by Anthology Film Archives with support from the National Film
  Preservation Foundation. Starring Taylor Mead. "In the old Hollywood
  movie days movie studios would keep a man on the set who, when all other
  sources of ideas failed (writers, directors), was called upon to 'cook
  up' something for filming. He was called The Wild Man. THE FLOWER THIEF
  has been put together in memory of all dead wild men who died unnoticed
  in the field of stunt." –R.R. Total running time: ca. 90 minutes.

New York, New York: Anthology Film Archives
6:00pm, 32 second Avenue

  SUNRISE by F.W. Murnau 1927, 95 minutes, 35mm. Murnau's first American
  film is an allegory set in no particular time or place, about a man who
  is temporarily overruled by his passions, inflamed by the power of evil
  as personified by the city woman, and who finally returns to his senses
  and the orderly family life of the country. It is a virtuoso exercise
  representing the expressiveness of the silent film as it neared its end.

New York, New York: Anthology Film Archives
7:30pm, 32 second Avenue

  SPECIAL HENRY HILLS DVD RELEASE EVENT Filmmaker in person! Reception to
  follow. Moving to New York in 1978, filmmaker Henry Hills formed a
  strong alliance with the Downtown music improvisers and the "Language"
  poets, guiding his film work toward a rhythmic, multilayered world
  filled with unpredictable changes and a striking improvisational edge.
  At long last, his uncompromising shorts are being released on DVD,
  courtesy of John Zorn's equally radical TZADIK label. This show includes
  the very best of Hills's wonderfully intense films – from the downtown
  all-star-filled MONEY to structural dance films like LITTLE LIEUTENANT
  and BALI MÉCANIQUE. A major force in new cinema, these films are
  brilliantly visual, crammed with image and double meaning. PORTER

  comes up with a singularly bizarre idea to make his existence palatable.
  Some Los Angeles Apartments and a Dorm – dir. Laura Daroca – Past and

  with images of Los Angeles residential buildings once inhabited by a
  young woman. More information on the films and filmmakers can be found
