I hope some Frameworkers will come to MIX!
Sorry for the late posting.

I especially encourage people to come see
Every Tme I See Your Picture I Cry,
Daniel Barrow's live, manual animation performance,
with overheard projections, video, and voiceover,
Friday Nov 20 at 8:30pm.

There are other films of specific interest to this list, but
it's the only queer experimental film festival in the world,
so there's lots to see.

Don't miss the 15 installations, including
Wildflowers of Manitoba, by Noam Gonick & Luis Jacob!

Schedule Overview

Tues, Nov 17 | 8 PM
<http://mixnyc.org/schedule-opening.html>Opening Night: Making All Local Stops
This year, MIX takes off with Green Fuse on the
express track, a swirl of colors and frenetic
editing. On the local track, pause with the
meditative biography of Delphinium, about the
early life of Derek Jarman. The works in this
show are from all boroughs, and terminate
Swedish-style with an erotic interpretation of
everyone's caboose.

Weds, Nov 18 | 7.30 PM
From Brooklyn to Berlin to Nova Scotia, the films
in this program trace different histories of
gentrification and corporate takeover from the
late 1960s to present day. From Brooklyn to
Berlin to Nova Scotia, the films in this program
trace different histories of gentrification and
corporate takeover from the late 1960s to present
day. Vanessa Renwick's House of Sound portrays a
loss in Portland, while Jem Cohen longs for the
city of New York with Patti Smith, and Samara
Halperin laments Astroland.

Weds, Nov 18 | 10 PM
<http://mixnyc.org/schedule-nightmares.html>Our Gorgeous Nightmares
MIX presents a banquet of fragrant imagery and
flagrant catastrophe, fashioned by directors
making love with designers and actors doubling as
models poised on Jungian runways in hyper-colored
darkness and swimming in dreamscapes encrusted
with poetic texture.

Thurs, Nov 19 | 6 PM
<http://mixnyc.org/schedule-facilitate-this.html>Facilitate This!
EE Miller, guest curator

presentations for the "perfect meeting" from kara
lynch, Sarah Schulman, and Ginger Brooks

Thurs, Nov 19 | 8 PM
<http://mixnyc.org/schedule-fig-trees.html>Fig Trees
Fig Tress is an operatic documentary about the
struggle of two AIDS activists--Canadian Tim
McCaskell and South African Zackie Achmat. Both
have fought tooth-and-nail for the provision of
anti-retroviral drugs to treat AIDS. In John
Greyson's film they are ably supported by
Gertrude Stein, a singing albino squirrel, and
St. Teresa of Avila.

Thurs, Nov 19 | 10 PM
<http://mixnyc.org/schedule-luminous-darkness.html>Luminous Darkness
Daniel Mckernan, guest curator
After the success of Homoccult & Other
Esoterotica (MIX 2007), this lineup of shorts is
a second coming of satanic queers and psychedelic
wild boys. This is a new set of magickal,
sexually transgressive videos focusing on erotic
ritual and performance. Luigi & Luca, Lukas
Beyeler, Gio Black Peter, Dominic Johnson,
JodyJock, Zackary Drucker, and others show us
works dealing with sex, violence, the occult,
magick, and other mystic esoterica.

Fri, Nov 20 | 7 PM
<http://mixnyc.org/schedule-stepping-out.html>Stepping Out of Time
Breaking down the language of dance, and luring
the human form into new realms of cinematic
experimentation, the films in this program are
stories told primarily with the body, and its
capacity to communicate with its shape and
momentum. With a world premiere from Arthur
Aviles and US premiere by Mara Mattuschka & Chis

Fri, Nov 20 | 7.30 PM @ Union Docs
<http://mixnyc.org/schedule-travel-queeries.html>Travel Queeries*

Awarded the 2008 Images Prize at its premiere,

book chronicling the lives of each person in his

Fri, Nov 20 | 10 PM
<http://mixnyc.org/schedule-never-satisfied.html>Never Satisfied

and a swift kick in the pants to conformity. This
red-hot lineup includes a transgender homage to
Peter Berlin and to psychedelic sapphistry.

Fri, Nov 20 | 12 MID
<http://mixnyc.org/schedule-misanthropic.html>Misanthropic Mania
These defiant, dysfunctional, deviant heroes show
unapologetic displays of camp, gender anarchy,
bodily fluids and boundary bashing. It's a
tsunami of expression, releasing frustration
against the co-optation of queer, crashing down
the walls of static identities. Catch Gary
Fembot's sci-fi imagining of AIDS activism and
Nica Ross's queeruptive take on The Wizard of Oz.

Sat, Nov 21 | 6 PM
<http://mixnyc.org/schedule-mirrors.html>Mirrors, Smoke and Glass
Through lenses and glass, distorted in mirrors,
in retrospect and in spectacle, fragmented,
pieced together and embedded in their surrounding
environments, the artists in this program render
reflections of themselves or paint a portrait of
other artists.

Sat, Nov 21 | 8 PM<http://mixnyc.org/schedule-bigger.html>
Bigger Than Life
Join author Jeffrey Escoffier and his guests
Wakefield Poole (Boys in the Sand), Joe Gage

ASL interpreted.

Sat, Nov 21 | 10 PM
<http://mixnyc.org/schedule-creepy.html>Creepy Dirty Girlie
Creepy Dirty Girlie includes both direct and
indirect examinations of dark and queer aspects
of women's sexuality not often seen in our
commodity-driven media. We see desires that are
unresolved, elude a single meaning, and extract
pleasure where it has often been denied.

Sun, Nov 22 | 4 PM
<http://mixnyc.org/schedule-different-take.html>A Different Take
Lights, sound, camera, action! Welcome to MIX
NYC's fourth year of "A Different Take," a video
production workshop for LGBTQ youth and young
adults. This year, participants were paired up
with college filmmakers who mentored students
through their production process. Free admission

Sun, Nov 22 | 6 PM
<http://mixnyc.org/schedule-do-it-to-it.html>Do It To It
This program highlights works that actively
demonstrate, reflect, and interpret the hard work
that people do; these works have varying
relationships with local and global communities
and with activist and artistic projects,
including Zavé Martohardjono's doc about Transy
House in Brooklyn.

Sun, Nov 22 | 8 PM
<http://mixnyc.org/schedule-maggots.html>Closing Night: Maggots & Men
Seeing Cary Cronenwett's Maggots and Men, you
have nothing to lose but your perceptions of
gender. This utopian re-visioning of the
Kronstadt Uprising of 1921, featuring film
history's first cast of over 100 transgender
actors, paints an idyllic portrait of formerly
pro-Soviet sailors at the Kronstadt naval
garrison who rebelled against the perceived
failures of the new Bolshevik state.


Once again, the MIX Factory will transform itself
from the inside out, and in the process present a
number of engaging, if not provocative,
site-specific installation and performance
pieces. Enrich your MIX experience before and
after screenings by taking in these exhibitions
and experimentations in multi-media.

Cloutier, with works by Noam Gonick and Luis
Jacob, Lori Hiris, Kadet Kuhne, Marc Arthur,
