    Los Angeles, California: Filmforum
    12:00 pm, Human Resources, 410 Cottage Home Street
    Alexander Kluge's News from Ideological Antiquity
    The Goethe Institut, German Current Film Festival, Human Resources, and Los Angeles Filmforum present Alexander Kluge's News from Ideological Antiquity Sunday, December 2, 2018, 12:00 pm – 9:30 pm At Human Resources, 410 Cottage Home Street, Los Angeles, California 90012 Free admission, tickets via the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/events/288411515125840/?active_tab=about Presented in its entirety as a 9.5 hour "marathon" screening / Installation. Guests are encouraged to bring pillows/cushions for extra comfort. Refreshments will be served throughout the event. Germany, 2008, 570 minutes. Documentary/essay anthology film. German with English subtitles Writer/Director: Alexander Kluge, Cinematography: Michael Christ, Erich Harandt, Werner Lüring, Claudia Marcell, Heribert Kansy, Thomas Mauch, Thomas Willke, Walter Lennertz, Editor: Kajetan Forstner, Andreas Kern Presumably the LA Premiere! Over the course of 570 minutes (three DVDs), Alexander Kluge works his way through the “ideological antiquity”, inspired by Sergei Eisenstein’s unfulfilled plan to film Marx’s “Das Kapital“. Eisenstein’s art of montage and Marx’s critique of the trade in commodities are fundamental bases of modernity – yet we have lost touch with modernity just as we have lost touch with antiquity. What can Marx and Eisenstein tell us about our current cultural and social production, Kluge wonders, but because it’s Kluge asking, there are many answers and even more new questions.

    ISM, ISM, ISM: EXPERIMENTAL CINEMA IN LATIN AMERICA, PGM 5: MISREADINGS / MALAS LECTURAS
    In the era of silent cinema, the interplay between text and image was a constant. Humberto Mauro, a major figure in the Brazilian avant-garde who believed that spoken dialogue and intertitles detracted from the moving image, integrated text in the form of speech bubbles in his experimental cinematic melodrama, GANGA BRUTA (1932). By the late 1960s, the use of text on screen finds a master of ambiguity and irony in the Cuban Nicolás Guillén Landrián. Following Santiago Álvarez's tradition, Guillén Landrián, nephew of the poet laureate Nicolás Guillén, playfully intermingles text and images on many different levels, generating a corrosive sense of irony and confusion in allegedly 'didactic' documentaries. The starting point of this program is Guillén Landrián's masterpiece, COFFEA ARÁBIGA (1968), a parody of the utopian 1968 Greenbelt agricultural project. The selection continues with more contemporary explorations of the combination of typography and film syntax. Nicolás Guillén Landrián COFFEA ARÁBIGA (Cuba, 1968, 18 min, 35mm-to-digital) Salvador Díaz Zubieta & Oscar Santos JÍCAMA (Mexico, 1970, 6.5 min, Super-8mm-to-digital) Jorge Honik & Laura Abel EL INMORTAL (Argentina, 1968, 7 min, Super-8mm-to-digital) Francisca Duran EVEN IF MY HANDS WERE FULL OF TRUTHS (Canada/Chile, 2012, 7.5 min, digital) Leticia Obeid JANO (JANUS) (Argentina, 2015, 2.5 min, digital, silent) Juan Carlos Alom DIARIO (Cuba, 2009, 13.5 min, 16mm-to-digital) Poli Marichal UNDERWATER BLUES (Puerto Rico, 1981, 6 min, Super-8mm-to-35mm) Paulo Bruscky POEM / POEMA (Brazil, 1979, 2 min, Super-8mm-to-digital) Total running time: ca. 70 min.

    SHOW & TELL: Frank & Caroline Mouris
    YOU'RE NOT REAL PRETTY BUT YOU'RE MINE: THE ANIMATED FILMS OF FRANK AND CAROLINE MOURIS For over five decades Frank and Caroline Mouris have collaborated to make intricately constructed yet whimsically playful animated works. They emerged alongside the myriad pioneering filmmakers of the 1960s and 70s - including Robert Breer, Standish Lawder, Suzan Pitt, Mary Beams, and Harry Smith, to name a few - who pursued their unique visions through the medium of experimental 16mm animation. Frank's early films, produced while a graduate student at Yale and recently preserved by the Yale Film Study Center, include early collage works, a technique he and Caroline would elaborate upon in later films such as QUICK DREAM, CHEMICAL ARCHITECTURE, and others. Frank and Caroline are widely known for their animated collage short FRANK FILM (1973), a surprise Academy Award winner, which features a soundtrack by New York icon Tony Schwartz. FRANK FILM's unexpected success enabled the duo to retain artistic freedom in their forays into commercial, television, and feature work in the 1970s and 80s. FRANK FILM also inaugurated a series of "animated documentaries," including CONEY, SCREENTEST, and FRANKLY CAROLINE. A short-lived jaunt to Los Angeles to direct features never quite worked out and they happily came back east. A quietly radical and innovative vision permeates all of their work, from commercials to Sesame Street and back again to their broad range of experimental animations. We are honored to have both Frank and Carline present to discuss their long, strange journey of love, films, dog breeding, and much more. Organized by Jeremy Rossen. Special thanks to Brian Meacham (Yale Film Study Center) and Cassie Blake (Academy Film Archive). Frank Mouris QUICK DREAM (1967, 3 min, 16mm.

    New York, New York: Museum of Modern Art
    7pm, 11 W. 53rd St.
    An Evening with Nazli Dinçel
    Nazli Dinçel’s first-person 16mm films, surveyed here in titles dating from 2009 to 2018, constitute a formidable vision for analog filmmaking within a current generation of experimental cinema artists. Dinçel’s films are rooted in the body, charting her and her lovers’ flesh across experiences of desire and dislocation. Hand-making her films—scratching, sewing, hammering, letter-punching, and typewriting all figure into the process—allows the artist to manifest intensely private subject matter in an equally physical cinematic object. Moments of carnal sublimation or self-pleasure, breakdowns of communication, and the lyrical textures of bodies in the spaces they inhabit all contribute to Dinçel’s self-described “female polemic against representations of the body.” Her work also gestures toward her upbringing in Turkey, from which she emigrated on her own as a teenager; the films’ painstaking construction evokes traditions such as rug-making, while their themes signal an urgency of self-expression without shame or reductive notions of gender. Reminiscent of Carolee Schneemann and Kathy Acker but articulated through a contemporary critical voice that is uniquely her own, Dinçel’s films are knowing, vital anthems about empowerment through art. The screening includes the world premiere of Dinçel’s newest work, Instructions on How To Make a Film, and a rare showing of her sole digital title, Untitled (2016), and will be followed by an onstage conversation.

    New York, New York: MONO NO AWARE
    7 pm , Red Bull Art New York 220 W 18th St, New York, New York 10011
    Lung-ta of Film + The Face of the Other + In Beauty May You Walk : MONO XI
    Lung-ta of Film opens this three part multi-media projection performance on 16mm, 35mm and digital projections created by Xuezi Zhang and performed with Manoshi Chitra Neogy and Scott Endsley. “Lung-ta of Film” began with a vision: a film strip exposed with ethical awareness and reverence carries the spiritual valence as one of those strings of fabrics found on high mountains, embedded with prayers that are received only in constant motion. “Lung-ta,” the Tibetan word meaning “wind horse,” is the symbolic name of prayer flags and the flowing spirit in the movement of the wind. This program is night 2 of a 5-night cinema-arts festival MONO NO AWARE XI and is Free to attend. This piece was commissioned by and given full production support from MONO NO AWARE.

    Laura Parnes' Blood and Guts in High School
    Admission: $10 General/$6 Cinematheque Members "We all live in a prison. Most of us don’t know we live in prison." — Kathy Acker, Blood and Guts in High School Cinematheque concludes its 2018 exhibitions with a rare screening of Laura Parnes’ BLOOD AND GUTS IN HIGH SCHOOL (2007), a chillingly dystopic deadpan dramatization of Kathy Acker’s infamously pornographic, plagiarized, resistant, oedipal and anti-imperial novel of the same name (published 1984). Parnes’ version places banal scenes from the life of its nihilistic anti-heroine Janie/Janey Smith in the context of U.S. news events, 1978–1982 (the years of the novel’s composition) including the Jonestown Massacre, the Three Mile Island nuclear accident, the Iranian Hostage Crisis and more. Endlessly timeless, Parnes’ Blood and Guts… presciently dramatizes the banality of everyday institutional oppression in these United States.

    Ft. Lauderdale, FL: 1:1 Super 8 Cinema Soirée
    7 PM, FAU-HEC METROLAB | 111 East Las Olas Blvd. | Free Entry/Cash Donations Accepted at Door
    1:1 Super 8 Cinema Soirée X
    BRIEF: For the milestone 10th time in South Florida, Black Iron Film Artist Collective and the original One Take Super 8 Event present the 1:1 Super 8 Cinema Soirée (est. 2006). Twenty-three filmmakers and artists will load their cameras to take part in this year’s spectacle, displaying the diversity and creativity of the South Florida super 8 film community. 2018 PARTICIPANTS: Bryan Adams | Laura Benitez | Amy Carlson | Raven Doyle | Shane Eason | Shelsea Estiverne | Jay Forsyth | Nicolas Giassi | Robert Gordon | Alex Henry | Chris Kitchen-Pareja | John Horvath | Nigel Howard | Bénédicte Laflamme | Ana Mackliff | Christina Mendenhall | Kiarash Naderi | Yaselyn Perez | Monisha Ramachendran-Selvaraj | Samantha Szekely | Derek Taylor | Jared Tench | Manny Zerpa. INFORMATION + HISTORY: The 1:1 Super 8 Cinema Soirée is a way to help create more independent films by a variety of artists while giving the local community an opportunity to view the films collectively in their intended and original form, through the gate of a super 8 projector, in a public exhibition space. It should be noted that using a super 8 camera is centered on the concept that this type of film, often discarded to antiquity in this digital age, is still an affordable film gauge for independent filmmakers. In recent years, more attention has been given to this film format, as it once sat on the edge of extinction. This super 8 exhibition is distinct in that none of the films are viewed by the filmmakers before the screenings. Participants are not allowed to edit or preview their films. What’s filmed in-camera, is what’s shown. No physical cuts or splices are allowed, and there is no opportunity to make changes. Sound is prerecorded or performed live and synced during the projection of the films. This idea leads to exciting, refreshing films (or happy accidents), and a rare opportunity for a public viewing. Each year the 1:1 Super 8 Cinema Soirée , coordinated by filmmaker and FAU film Professor Shane Eason, has spawned a cache of great films, holds an impressive festive atmosphere, and continues to have a loyal, cult-like following. The popularity of this noncompetitive event has enabled its return most years with more filmmakers participating. 2018 will mark the 1:1 Super 8 Cinema Soirée's 10th year in South Florida. It’s quite the milestone and a topic of discussion among those yearning the sight and smell of super 8 film, and the soothing sound of a super 8 projector. 2018 ACKNOWLEDGMENTS: Florida Atlantic University, FAU School of Communication & Multimedia Studies, FAU Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters, FAU MetroLab, Black Iron Films, One Take Super 8 Event, Pro8mm, Fullspread Magazine

    Barbara Hammer, Superdyke: Ecstatic Subjectivity
    Ecstatic Subjectivity Throughout her career, many of Hammer’s more visually ecstatic works reveal a psychedelic thread running through her filmography, from her 1968 debut Schizy, to one of her final works on 16mm, Generations (made with Joey Carducci). Using various technical and formal approaches including time lapse, optical printing, animation, and digital image manipulation, Hammer has regularly embraced the presence and physicality of film to deeply mine the rapture of subjective vision.

    ARCHIVE FEVER3: YOUTUBERS Cato's "Loop 8" + Lane's "Appearances" + Gagnon's "Going South" +
    This third instance of the Archive Effect elegantly demonstrates how the terrain of “found footage” has expanded from 16mm celluloid, to analog and then digital video, to broadcast television, to internet TV, and now to www content-aggregators themselves. Kristin Cato (on violin) and Cindy Sawprano (on musical saw!) prime the party with the world premiere of Loop 8, a Live Film performance that whirlpools us into the infinite recursions of that wonder-filled number. Finished at Wexner, Vanguard Awardee Penny Lane (Nuts, Pain of Others) transmutes the dross of The Bachelor dating show into the gold of her Normal Appearances, another of Lane’s savvy super-cuts that both appreciate and de-naturalize mass media. Dominic Gagnon, the controversial French-Canadian archeologist of the present, exports the West Coast premiere of Going South, the second in his compass tetralogy that manages to capture the unique ice crystals in the ever-roiling YouTube cloud enveloping our orb, so to artfully organize those first-person confessionals into a new kind of crowd-sourced documentary. ALSO: Katherin McInnis too delivers a debut, Eye of the Needle, a marvelous re-visitation of WPA Farm Security photos, scored by Matthew Leonard. PLUS pieces by David King (in person), Soda_Jerk, Rachel Woolf, Rachel Evans, Bruce Conner (!), and a sneak peek at Baldwin/Dziesinski’s Bomb Time. *$8
