    Berlin, Germany: Fracto
    n.a., ACUD MACHT NEU, Veteranenstraße 21 10119 Berlin Mitte U8 Rosenthaler Platz
    Fracto
    Fracto is a 2 day encounter inviting filmmakers to present their work and discuss contemporary means of audiovisual experimentation, on May 20th/21st at ACUD macht neu, Berlin. In times of ever-present cameras and a constant stream of seemingly self-propagating moving images we have become accustomed to a mediatized experience of reality, where time and space lose their coordinates. Exceeding an entirely negative conception of today’s perceptual landscape, how can the reconfiguration of audiovisual media and technologies therein be a productive foundation for new means of ever-changing and heterogeneous narratives? How can this landscape be reflected, dissolved or disrupted in film itself? What are the appropriate means of sorting and resetting these influences, and what – if any – other modes of representation emerge between mere categories of newness and obsolescence, documentary, fictional, poetic, latent or evident imagery?

    Vancouver, British Columbia: Iris Film Collective
    7pm, 1131 Howe St
    Iris Film Collective responds to The Image Before Us
    This program of work by Iris Film Collective includes sixteen short films screening in a number of formats, including super 8 and dual-channel 16mm. Made in and around B.C., this collection constitutes a multiform experience of place: recreational life in Opening Day; an alternate tour of abandoned monuments and plazas that Expo left behind in Legacies; a fence impenetrable but revealing in 86 SE Marine Drive. Colin Browne’s 1986 essay film The Image Before Us, which inspired The Cinematheque’s “Image Before Us” series, asks what aren’t we seeing in the movies about Vancouver. This program also hints at something beyond the frame that cannot be filmed or heard, something inexpressible in words, images, or sounds alone.

    TRANSPARENT THINGS, LANDSCAPE DISSOLVES: Screening and Talk with Filmmaker Paul Clipson
    Paul Clipson is a San Francisco-based filmmaker who often collaborates with sound artists and musicians on films, live performances, and installations. His Super 8 and 16mm films aim to bring to light visual preoccupations that reveal themselves while working in a stream of consciousness manner, combining densely layered, in-camera edited studies of figurative and abstract environments, in a process that encourages unplanned-for results, responding to and conversing with the temporal qualities of musical composition and live performance. His work has screened around the world in festivals and at sound and film events such as the International Film Festival Rotterdam, The New York Film Festival, and the Cinémathèque Française. http://www.withinmirrors.org/ Program: SPHINX ON THE SEINE (2009) 16mm (* shot on Super 8mm), color/B&W, 7.5 minutes, music by Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, CHORUS (2010) 16mm (*shot on Super 8mm), color, 7 minutes, music by Gregg Kowalsky, UNION (2011) 16mm (*shot on Super 8mm), color/B&W, 14.5 minutes, music by Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, ANOTHER VOID (2012) 16mm (*shot on Super 8mm), color, 11 minutes, music by Jefre Cantu-Ledesma LIGHT YEAR (2013) 16mm, color, 10 minutes, music by Tashi Wada, DISPORTING WITH A SHADOW (2015) 16mm, color/B&W, 4 minutes, music by Alex Cobb, THE LIQUID CASKET / WILDERNESS OF MIRRORS (2014) 16mm, color/B&W, 7.5 minutes, music by Lawrence English, MADE OF AIR (2014) 16mm, color/B&W, 11 minutes, music by Grouper, LIGHTHOUSE (2015) 16mm, color/B&W, 5 minutes, music by King Midas Sound/Fennesz.

    New York, New York: Anthology Film Archives
    7:30 pm, 32 2nd Ave.
    Essential Cinema: John and Ivy & Salvador Dali
    JOHN AND IVY (1965, 33 min, 16mm, b&w) “One of Warhol’s early experiments in sound filmmaking, JOHN AND IVY is a one-reel ‘documentary’ film showing Ivy Nicolson, John Palmer, and their children at home during a major snowstorm in January 1965. The film is shot with a stationary camera which points through a doorway into their squalid tenement kitchen. The stars wander around the kitchen, talking, cooking, and occasionally embracing while a live radio plays both classical and rock music; the sound quality is very poor.” –Callie Angell & SALVADOR DALI (1966, 22 min, 16mm, b&w, silent) “A silent ‘EPI Background’ reel, intended for projection behind the Velvet Underground during performances of the Exploding Plastic Inevitable. SALVADOR DALI contains original SCREEN TESTS of the mustachioed Dali, followed by Nico, Sterling Morrison, and Lou Reed. The film ends with two WHIP DANCE rolls, in which Gerard Malanga and Mary Woronov perform their S&M dance routine from the EPI for Warhol’s camera.” –Callie Angell

    Tucson, AZ: Exploded View Microcinema
    7:30, 197 E Toole Ave
    Doris Wishman’s Double Agent 73
    (GIRL CRUSH SERIES) A beautiful American spy (played by the fabulous Chesty Morgan) can murder men by smothering them with her enormous breasts. This trashy 70s sexploitation film, directed by the legendary Doris Wishman, is a feminist cult classic. Enjoy Wishman’s bizarre experimental cinematography, far-out plot twists and wild 1970’s camp! With special opening performance by local queer trans* lesbian woman of color stripperformance artist Rambo Reza!

    London, England: no.w.here and Thirty Three Thirty Three
    19:30-22:00, The Old Church Stoke Newington London N16 9ES United Kingdom
    Paul Clipson with Shinya Sugimoto & Jeremy Young: Total Fiction
    Taking its name from Shinya Sugimoto & Jeremy Young's forthcoming LP featuring cellist Julia Kent, Total Fiction is live score performance to a 16mm film projection by Paul Clipson. Like all of Clipson's film collage works, this will be frenetic, it will span movements both in stark black and white and bright analog color, and the score will be disbursed in a series of chapters. Improvisation, for Sugimoto and Young, is like fiction, and they will work to bring out auditory characters, narratives, themes and transitional arcs from the celluloid, while at times challenging the pictures to provide new meaning in new sonic contexts from space to space. Shinya Sugimoto performs on piano and Max MSP triggered processing, while Young will be utilizing his analog electronics such as reel-to-reel tape loops, oscillators, AM radio and contact mic'd objects and surfaces to build textural and tonal colour palettes throughout the evening.

    Boulder, Colorado: Month of Photography / Seidel City Gallery
    7pm - 10pm, 3205 Longhorn Road, Boulder, CO 80302
    When I Stop Looking: 
short films and small prints by Todd Edward Herman
    Todd Edward Herman's haunting imagery suggests mysteriously entwined narratives, drawing no clear lines between fiction and fact. Herman utilizes photography, videography and painting as departure points for thirty exquisitely printed limited edition prints. Dealing with themes of the body and transience, representational taboos, spectatorship and complicity, his work looks to a rare beauty, making no claims to journalistic inquiry.  Among the selected films screening at Seidel City will be Herman's award winning short film Cabinet , a visceral and poetic documentary on death, mourning and life beginning anew. Also screening will be Herman's When I Stop Looking , a film that looks beyond the imprint of appearances, invoking the intensely private worlds of those portrayed, each of whom lives with significant facial and cranial conditions; a vivid affirmation of existence comes forward, before anything else.  Todd Edward Herman has been the recipient of many awards for his work including the San Francisco International Film Festival's New Vision Award, the Art Council of Northern Ireland's Artist in Residence Award, Grants from the San Francisco Film Arts Foundation, a Western States Regional Media Arts Fellowship, Taipei Artist Village Residency, and the San Francisco Art Commission's Emerging Curator Award. He has presented his work at such venues as the International Film Festival Rotterdam, San Francisco International Film Festival, Southbank Centre, Anthology Film Archives, San Francisco Cinematheque, and Pacific Film Archives.

    Jem Cohen: World Without End (No Reported Incidents)
    Quite close to London, but for many, a million miles away, Southend-on-Sea is a town along the Thames estuary. World Without End (No Reported Incidents), the new documentary from Jem Cohen, is a portrait of this place–everyday streets, everyday birds, unflagging tides, mud, and sky. But it is also about humanity and history, about prize-winning Indian curries, an encyclopedic universe of hats, and a nearly lost world of proto-punk music. ARTIST IN ATTENDANCE.

    Los Angeles, California: Echo Park Film Center
    8 pm , 1200 N Alvarado St
    New Works Salon XXXVIII
    The New Works Salons series is a casual forum for the presentation and discussion of new works in film, video, sound, and performance, with local and visiting artists often in-person to introduce their work. This program will include works by Christina Battle, Gelare Koshkgozaran, Azadeh Navai, Julie Sadowski, Penelope Uribe-Abee, and Walter Vargas. Christina Battle’s Notes to Self is an ongoing series of videos documenting a simple, repetitive act as a way to mimic our fleeting engagement with social media status updates. Fragments of text, in the form of notes to myself, are set on fire with varying degrees of success. Unlike social media updates, the fate of these updates are controlled and finite, existing only for a few seconds before being completely destroyed. The notes, which range from humourous reminders and revelations to recollections about larger societal events, are simple in both form and execution, allowing for a critical and considered viewing response. Gelare Khoshgozaran will show her work An Analog Poem for Super 8 and voice, which was commissioned by Echo Park Film Center. Azadeh Navai will show her 16mm film Remembering the Pentagons, a slow, rhythmic, and contemplative journey into her earliest childhood memories. With an old 16mm Bolex and a hand-made pinhole camera, Navai returns to Tehran and Esfahan, Iran, where the perceptions and recollections of places, emotions, and scents serve as vehicles through which she exposes a deeply personal landscape. She asks — what is the texture of memory? In what ways does time — the light, wind, and air of history — wear upon the monuments and the images of the past? Born in Tehran during the Iran-Iraq war, Navai seeks to access a time of personal turmoil both for her family and for her birth country in this poetic capturing of place, history and memory. Penelope Uribe-Abee will show her new work Practice: a video, video sketch, and/or exercise mainly crafted out of personal heartbreak and coping. This video was made as an effort to make more personal, insular work while still preserving the idea of emotional accessibility in an audience. This is one part in a series of depicted analogies that explore how basic actions and gestures like playing the drums can serve as representations for actions with larger emotional implications: like falling in love. Walter Vargas will show Kru steez all no , a Super 8 double projection with coordinated memes high on the current meme economy @ time of showing #bulb #democracy #doesitreallywork #inheat. Julie Sadowski is a Polish-American artist living in Los Angeles. She is simultaneously excited and severely overwhelmed with the excess of images in the world, including those she created herself. She attempts to create order out of the chaos of the visible world by employing her own subjective systems of logic.

    PAUL CLIPSON WITH SHINYA SUGIMOTO & JEREMY YOUNG PRESENT TOTAL FICTION + NATHANIEL MANN
    A 16mm film projection event with live improvised sound/music performance. Nathaniel Mann is a composer, sound artist and performer. He was the Embedded Composer in Residence at Oxford University’s Pitt Rivers Museum and Oxford Contemporary Music for 20 months. During this time he garnered a reputation for creating diverse and engaging responses to the museum and its collections. Described as “a fluid unfolding of the museum experience” (ATTN: Magazine) his wide reaching works incorporate site specific performances, interventions and installations. He is best known for his work with avant-folk ensemble Dead Rat Orchestra, who specialize in site specific performances and concept driven tours of unorthodox locations, challenging traditional concert settings. He has written for Tate, BBC Scotland & London Contemporary Orchestra. His Donkey Symphony (with Lara Baladi) won the Gran Nile Award at the Cairo Biennale 2008 and was performed by Ukraine’s State Camera Orchestra “Kievskaya Kamerata”.

    1:30 pm, Tennessee Theatre
    Flicker and Wow 1
    One of two programs of recent avant-garde short films curated for Big Ears. Empyrean by Kalpana Subramanian (6:20, Digital) An abstract, meditative piece, Empyrean was “filmed” at the altar of celluloid cinema. Using a mobile phone camera, Subramanian intercepted mediated light from the projector during screenings of various 16mm prints of films by Stan Brakhage (1933-2003). The film is part of her larger, art-based research project, Light Mediated: Eyes on Brakhage, which explores the poetics of the moving image. Them Apples by Adam R. Levine (2:40, 16mm) Using the parallel temporal forms of the three-minute pop song and the 16mm camera roll, Them Apples runs The Beatles’ “Back In The U.S.S.R.” through iTunes Visualizer to create an optical sound experiment in which synaesthesia and pop cultural memory are turned back on themselves.   1_ _ _ _1 by Karissa Hahn (3:00, Digital) One roll of super 8. A ‘collaboration’ or rather, a collusion of sorts. As for my volition . . . I fall, you falter. Thinking about “A Young Girl Defending Herself against Eros” by William Adolphe Bouguereau, 1880. Thinking about . . . suspense/tension, taking us down with me. Deux Champs (Two Fields) by Kevin Obsatz (7:50, Digital) In 1953, a young photographer named Victor Obsatz created a double-exposed portrait of Marcel Duchamp by mistake. 55 years later that photo appeared in the pages of Smithsonian Magazine and was featured at a Duchamp retrospective. Deux Champs (Two Fields) is a hand-processed reflection on the distant memory of that day and everything that has happened since. As Without So Within by Manuela De Laborde (24:20, 16mm) De Laborde has usefully described the making of As Without So Within as “returning to Montessori.” Built from closeup images of handmade “props” (her preferred term), the film reveals, reworks, and illuminates several fundamental components of experimental filmmaking: abstraction, sculpture, and the material of celluloid itself. Koropokkuru by Akiko Maruyama and Philippe Roy (4:10, Digital) A moving portrayal of an ineffable force that can be humanlike or embody itself within displayed objects. Inspired by concepts from the Koropokkuru folktale within Japanese Ainu culture, as well as The Invisible Man.

    10am, Tennessee Theatre
    Meredith Monk: Book of Days
    A rare 35mm public screening of Meredith Monk's 1989 feature film BOOK OF DAYS. “Meredith Monk has been an anomaly for much of her 27-year career as a composer and choreographer, creating dances that were operas, operas that were dances and mythic theater pieces that were operas and dances. To complicate matters, Ms. Monk is also a filmmaker. In Book of Days, she has created a film that is essentially a moving picture." -- Jennifer Dunning, The New York Times

    3pm, Regal Riviera 8
    Jem Cohen: Lost Book Found
    The result of over five years of Super-8 and 16mm filming on New York City streets, Lost Book Found melds documentary and narrative into a complex meditation on city life. The piece revolves around a mysterious notebook filled with obsessive listings of places, objects, and incidents. These listings serve as the key to a hidden city: a city of unconsidered geographies and layered artifacts—the relics of low-level capitalism and the debris of countless forgotten narratives.

    Knoxville, TN: The Public Cinema / Big Ears Festival
    4pm, Knoxville Museum of Art
    Flicker & Wow 2
    The second of two programs of recent avant-garde short films curated for Big Ears. Parallel Inquiries by Christina C Nguyen (9:25, 16mm) sound from image / image from color // inquiries into the analog film system Nova Remnants by Stefan Grabowski (10:30, Digital) A nova remnant consists of matter left behind by a cataclysmic nuclear explosion, causing the intense and sudden brightening of a star. Due to the relatively short time-span over which they occur, nova remnants generally no longer exist by the time their light reaches us on Earth. Ghost Comb. by Ryland Walker Knight (7:15, Digital) A meditation on life as text, and how we may outlive our finite selves in the realm of the imaginary. Spotlight on a Brick Wall by Alee Peoples and Mike Stoltz (8:00, 16mm) A performance film that navigates expectations of both the audience and the makers. A series of false starts. Dub treatment on the laugh track. Little Orphant Annie by Bill Morrison (7:00, Digital) Little Orphant Annie is a re-edit of a silent film of the same title from 1918, directed by Colin Campbell. Two reels from an original nitrate print were scanned and re-edited to make the new film, which follows the structure of the poem written by James Whitcomb Riley in 1885. Riley is heard reciting his poem in a recording made in 1912. The poem is also heard read by Kelli Shay Hix in 2016, who additionally wrote and performs the song, “The Swimmer.” One Roll in the Blackness by Chris Kennedy (3:10, 16mm) Keiji Haino, live in Toronto, June 22, 2011. A single roll of film, shot one frame at a time. Special thanks to Keiji Haino and Adam Rosen.
