Frederick Wiseman: Meat
April 8, 2010, 8:30 pm
REDCAT

Presented in partnership with the USC Roski School of Fine Arts MFA Program

Award-winning documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman has created a body of work that offers a grand panorama of American life, studying human and institutional behavior in all their contradictory and unpredictable manifestations. In Meat (1976), Wiseman tracks the workings of a highly automated packing plant, illustrating important points and problems in the production, transportation, logistics, equipment design and labor management that turns cattle and sheep into consumer goods.

The evening will be introduced by Josh Siegel, The Museum of Modern Art's Associate Curator in the Department of Film. Siegel has organized more then eighty exhibitions, including The Lodz Film School of Poland: 50 Years; To Save and Project: The MoMA International Festival of Film Preservation; and retrospectives devoted to artists/filmmakers including Jeanne Moreau, Nicholas Ray, Oskar Fischinger, Ken Jacobs, John Frankenheimer, Errol Morris, and the current, 2010 focus on the films of Frederick Wiseman.

$5

Film collector Russell Harnden is back with another screening of GEMS FROM THE ARCHIVES, a film series devoted to obscure and outdated ephemeral films drawn from his personal collection of cartoons, educational, and industrial films. A sampling of these wonderful films from the 40's, 50's, and 60's will be pulled from the vault and screened during an evening that's sure to stimulate your mind and make you chuckle at the same time. Join us and watch as an entire community tries to "get along" underground (`OCCUPYING A PUBLIC SHELTER"), a kid with an attitude searches for gainful employment ("HOW TO KEEP A JOB"), and you'll be amazed at how the future of telecommunications is boldly predicted ("TALKING OF TOMORROW"). There will be many more great titles as well. Taken VERY seriously when these films were made, today they now serve as campy, nostalgic reminders of a simpler time. So be sure to join us for a fun and "educational" evening! COLLECTOR RUSS HARNDEN IN ATTENDANCE!

CONTEMPORARY ROMANIAN CINEMA
at the UCLA Film & Television Archive
April 9-19
http://www.cinema.ucla.edu/public/calendar/calendar_f.html

A popular Romanian joke compares the Romanian pessimist who moans, "Things couldn't possibly get worse," with the optimist who insists, "Yes, they can!" The witticism pithily evokes characteristic ironies of the country's recent cinema. Fueled by a powerhouse of young talents who came of age during and after the Revolution of 1989, recent Romanian film, lauded for its austerity, dark humor and engagement with the Communist past, has garnered numerous top prizes at international festivals while at home, a paucity of movie screens and a glut of foreign films stall the development of a domestic audience for Romanian film. But the country's international success against such odds is as dramatic as the films themselves, bespeaking a compelling fervor for cinema that is evident in this selection of recent festival favorites.

IN PERSON: Filmmakers Ioana Uricaru (April 2), Nae Caranfil (April 11) and actor Jamie Elman (April 18). Friday April 9 2010, 7:30PM

Join us for a very special evening as we rummage through the archive to bring you a double header of experimental folk music and films. Our journey will travel through the depths of Centerville, Texas to the heart of Los Angeles in 1967, exploring strange portraits of American musicians, moments of joyful discoveries, and stories about the blues. Come for short films by Les Blank (Gap Toothed Women, Garlic Is As Good As Ten Mothers) and stay for the music, with a live set from The 1921A, featuring a screaming banjo and songs inspired by the old that sound nothing but the new. Not to be missed!

Close-Up dir by Abbas Kiarostami
Saturday April 10 @ 7:30pm
Cinefamily
611 N Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, 90036 / 323-655-2510
http://cinefamily.org/calendar/saturday_early.html#longtakes

If a documentary that relies on recreation goes beyond just recreating -- then what exactly is Close-Up? Famed Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami attempts to solve this mystery with remarkable precision, and yet tantalizingly raises more questions than answers with this unique and fascinating film. The stranger-than-fiction narrative follows a lowly grifter who cons an entire family into thinking he's Mohsen Makhmalbaf (another famous director); after he cheats them out of the "budget for his next film", he lands in jail and catches the attention of Kiarostami, who appears in the film as himself to recreate the true story -- using the real people whom it happened to. Cast in the finespun neo-realism that has garnered Kiarostami such international reverence, Close-Up's dizzying layers of meta manage to make the film also be its own making-of, guiding the viewer through all the mirrored, tortured chambers of a soul caught by cinema. We proudly present Close-Up in a brand-new restored 35mm print!

Underground Films & Termite Art: A Tribute to Manny Farber
LACMA
April 16 - April 30
http://www.lacma.org/programs/FilmSeriesSchedule.aspx

LACMA pays tribute to painter, carpenter, professor and critic Manny Farber (1917-2008) with a film series honoring his eclectic, all-inclusive taste. From his start in the '40s at The New Republic and The Nation onto a short stint in Time replacing James Agee and columns in magazines ranging from men's monthly Cavalier to Artforum, Farber wrote on film with unprecedented verve. His language was just as vividly figurative-In Cold Blood is "slablike" while Lee Marvin has a "Planter's Peanut head" in Point Blank-as his observations were unconventional. Perhaps his best-known piece of writing, 1962's "White Elephant Art vs. Termite Art," finds him praising film work with "no ambitions towards gilt culture" and defined by "forward eating [of] its own boundaries... [It] leaves nothing in its path other than the sins of eager, industrious, unkempt activity."

Of course Farber himself was likely the greatest of these termite artists. His cinematic interests ranged from the unpretentious pictures of "male action" directors like Raoul Walsh, Howard Hawks, Anthony Mann, and William Wellman (singled out by Farber long before they became fodder for auteur theories in Paris and London) to North American experimental film (Warhol, Snow), European art cinema (Jean-Luc Godard, Marguerite Duras, Werner Herzog) and all sorts of ephemera in between.

Though he stopped publishing works on film in the late 1970s-much of it collected in the influential anthology Negative Space (first published in 1971, expanded in 1998)-he continued producing and exhibiting works of art-with one-man shows at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and Larry Gagosian Gallery-and teaching as part of the Visual Arts faculty at the University of California San Diego. With his complete, published film writings finally available in an impressive Library of America volume and this five-night, six-decade-spanning retrospective, Manny Farber is out from the underground.

Los Angeles Filmforum presents Stephanie Barber: Little Presents
At the Egyptian Theatre, 6712 Hollywood Blvd. at Las Palmas, Los Angeles

Laden and light, with ideas and technology and analogy and analogue essences, whimsical manipulations of time and text, suffused with the emotional heft needed for these heart-wrenching, media mad times, the works of Stephanie Barber are among the most unique and delightful being produced these days. We've lucky to have her in Los Angeles for a night of a West Coast jaunt from Baltimore. Don't miss this rare opportunity to explore these films and converse with the artist about them. or let them play in your dreams for the weeks to follow.

Tickets: $10 general; $6 students/seniors with ID; free for Filmforum members
Advance tickets at: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/106092/

"Stephanie Barber . . . has one of the most original visions to emerge recently from the diverse experimental film scene. Deceptively simple at first, her work is unique in the way it alters and even suspends time." - The Chicago Reader

"[Stephanie Barber's films] can feel like highly formal exercises in film language made by a profoundly restless mind, playing image and sound off each other and forcing you to locate implied meanings on your own. Others are both silly and oddly engaging, involving puppets mundanely discussing pressing metaphysical concerns. And others calmly and almost imperceptibly sweep you up in the genuine breadth of their emotional wake." - Bret McCabe at The Baltimore City Paper

Stephanie Barber is a multi media artist who creates meticulously crafted, odd and imaginative writing, films and videos as well as performance pieces which incorporate music, literature and video. She has had numerous screenings of her film and video work including solo shows at MoMA, NY, Anthology Film Archives, San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center, Chicago Filmmakers, Bio Penrepo Prague, Close-Up Video, London and The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. Her films and videos have also been included in screenings at The New York Film Festival, Film Festival Rotterdam, The Cinematheque Francaise, The London International Film Festival, The Whitney Museum of American Art, Proekt Fabrika and the State Contemporary Art Centre (both in Moscow), The San Francisco Museum of Contemporary Art and The Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art among others.

Her performances have been featured at the Baltimore Museum of Art, The Milwaukee Museum of Art, The Haggerty Museum of Art and galleries and artspaces around the world. Her most recent video/performance piece, in the jungle, premiered in May 2009 at The Stone, NYC, and has recently screened at Los Solos in Baltimore in Chicago for the closing night of the Chicago Underground Film Festival and will screen at the San Francisco Cinematheque and DC Center for the Arts in the spring of 2010.

Sharon Lockhart: Lunch Break with Exit
Los Angeles theatrical premieres
at REDCAT
http://www.redcat.org/event/sharon-lockhart

"Lunch Break and Exit will remain not only as a high point in the history of experimental film, but a significant moment in the representation of American labor." Senses of Cinema

In her new series on the state of American labor, artist and filmmaker Sharon Lockhart turns her meditative gaze to workers at the Bath Iron Works shipyard in Maine. Lunch Break (2008, 80 min., HD) revisits cinema's second-greatest invention after the close-up: the tracking shot. In one long, sensuous, uninterrupted take, the film moves through a factory corridor where workers linger while on their lunch break. The camera "tracks down," literally, the minute, humble signs of humanity, captured at such a quotidian level that the viewer cannot help but be moved to the core. In the confines of an industrial setting, imperfect bodies unfold as sculptures in time as Lockhart's evocative soundscape, designed with filmmaker James Benning and composer Becky Allen, extends from the drone of machinery to Led Zeppelin. Lunch Break is followed by the companion film Exit (2008, 41 min., HD), in which Lockhart reverses the gaze, with a fixed camera and a nod to Lumière.

UCLA Melnitz Movies, Los Angeles Filmforum, and UCLA's Ludus present
Avant-Game: Video game-based experimental short films

Melnitz Movies, Los Angeles Filmforum, and the student gaming organization Ludus proudly present a program of video game based experimental shorts. Expanding the boundaries of machinima, each of these works appropriates content from a game such as Grand Theft Auto, World of Warcraft, or Tomb Raider and re-contextualizes it, commenting on issues of gender or militarism, identity or representation. (Machinima is the use of real-time three-dimensional (3-D) graphics rendering engines to generate computer animation. - wikipedia)

Alternately playful and contemplative, these pieces collectively illustrate the ever-growing diversity of possibilities created by this still-young source of found footage.

When: Tuesday, April 20, 7:30 pm
Where: The James Bridges Theater, Melnitz Hall, UCLA

Earth Day 70mm Print! BARAKA, 1992, Magidson Films, 96 min. Inspired by the Sufi word meaning "breath of life," BARAKA is a mind-expanding, spiritual journey around the globe -- shot in 24 countries on five continents -- from director-cinematographer Ron Fricke (who photographed the earlier KOYAANISQATSI) and producer Mark Magidson (the Imax film CHRONOS). Filmed entirely without dialogue in a stunning cascade of crystalline, time-lapse 70mm images, BARAKA is quite simply breathtaking.

The UCLA Film & Television Archive, in association with Los Angeles Filmforum, presents
INTERSECTIONS: POETRY/FILM

At the UCLA Film & Television Archive, the Billy Wilder Theater at the Hammer Museum
10899 Wilshire Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90024
310-206-3456

Innovative filmmakers searching for new cinematic forms have frequently turned to poetry as a source of inspiration and to poets themselves as collaborators. In the 1960s and 70s, in particular, especially with respect to the Beat poets, it became clear that poetry and avant-garde film, both together and in parallel, had achieved a major evolution of visual and written language which continues to fuel popular and artistic culture today. As the UCLA campus welcomes the 2010 Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, the Archive presents two nights of films exploring the intersection of mid-century poets and filmmakers and the casual, humorous and often rigorous cross-pollinization between these artists of the page and screen.

Filmforum members can get two tickets for the price of one to either of these screenings, only available at the door, not in advance.

Tickets $10
