Among his more than 350 personal films, Stan Brakhage (1933-2003) produced only 27 works with soundtracks (a complete list appears below). In this program, five of these sound films will be shown, representing a variety of approaches to what Brakhage referred to as "the `sound problem' of motion picture aesthetic." (We hope you had a chance to join us for two other Brakhage sound films – Visions in Meditation #3 and Scenes From Under Childhood, Section One – which were screened in our program on June 6, 2010.)

Brakhage created his own soundtracks for a number of the films (three of which are included tonight), but also worked with composers, who either created new pieces for him, or authorized existing pieces to be used. Many of them were also friends, including James Tenney (Interim, Christ Mass Sex Dance, "..." Reel Five), Rick Corrigan (Visions in Meditation #3, Boulder Blues and Pearls And..., Faust 4, others), and Joel Haertling (I... Dreaming, Loud Visual Noises, others).

Although music and sound were of great significance to Brakhage, sound cinema was a problematic area that he felt would often create more unresolvable conflict in his work than the harmony of spirit that might be desired. Brakhage approached the visual and rhythmic aspects of his films in such an intensely musical way, that any attempt at soundtrack might only create distraction, conflict, and competition between his visual music and its aural counterpart. Nevertheless, he did work with sound on 27 occasions, sometimes to his great personal satisfaction (Passage Through: A Ritual), sometimes only to resigned tolerance (Scenes From Under Childhood, Section One).

Program curated and introduced by Mark Toscano, preservationist at the Academy Film Archive. Prints from the Academy Film Archive and Canyon Cinema.

STAN BRAKHAGE, 1933-2003
Born in Kansas City, Missouri in 1933, Brakhage moved to Denver, Colorado at the age of six. He sang as a boy soprano soloist, dreamed of being a poet, and graduated from South High School in 1951 with a scholarship to Dartmouth. After one semester, he left to pursue a life in the Arts, returning to Denver to make his first film in 1952.

Before his death in March, 2003, Brakhage had completed more than 350 films, ranging from the psycho-dramatic works of the early 1950s to autobiographical lyrics, mythological epics, "documents," and metaphorical film 'poems' -- variously employing his uniquely developed hand-held camera and rapid editing techniques, multiple superimpositions, collages, photographic abstractions, and elaborate hand-painting applied directly to the surface of the film. A deeply personal filmmaker, Brakhage's great project was to explore the nature of light and all forms of vision – while encompassing a vast range of subject matter. He frequently referred to his works as "visual music" or "moving visual thinking." The majority of his films are intentionally silent.

Brakhage taught at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and as Distinguished Professor of Film Studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder. The recipient of three Honorary Degrees and numerous prestigious awards, he lectured extensively on filmmaking and the Arts, and is the author of 11 books – including his seminal 1963 work, Metaphors On Vision, and his more recent series of essays, Telling Time. - Marilyn Brakhage, December 2007

Blue Moses (1962, b/w, sound, 10.5min)
Sound by Stan Brakhage.
"Blue Moses attacks the dramatic film as an untenable convention. Brakhage temporarily accepts the principles of the realists of film theory who argue that cinema arises from the interaction of the artist with exterior reality in front of the camera. But he rebuts them with a demonstration of how fragile their sense of exterior reality is." (P. Adams Sitney)
Restored print from the Academy Film Archive.

Day Break and White Eye (1957, b/w, sound, 9.5min)
Sound by Stan Brakhage.
"These two films investigate frustrations in loving, DAYBREAK with a girl as object, WHITEYE with the camera as subject." (Stan Brakhage)
"...I studied informally with John Cage and Edgard Varèse and developed a friendship with them, they permitted me to sit in on sessions, overhear music lessons, and out of this relationship I came to understand that I was not obsessed with sound like I was with vision. And so at times I certainly forced things, I have films that have whole soundtracks that were much struggled with and did have moments of obsession involved in the making. For instance Day Break and White Eye, where the whole track was of the integrity of the image. By integrity I mean where the film is integral unto itself, it has its own internal relationships which make it have a life in the world." (Stan Brakhage, 5/19/73 at Millennium Film Workshop)

Christ Mass Sex Dance (1991, color, sound, 5.5min)
Sound by James Tenney: "Blue Suede".
"Because it is so highly edited, James Tenney's `Blue Suede' is so meaningfully conjunctive with the possibilities of cinema. Its editing is for the purpose of creating metaphor, so that whatever the words are of `Blue Suede Shoes', recutting allows submerged grunts and vulgarities to emerge from the track. And that's what compelled me to put imagery appropriate and meaningful to that and make Christ Mass Sex Dance. It was an extremely complex work to make, but for me what it does very simply is give you something truer to a normal thought process." (Stan Brakhage, 2/6/93 at Millennium Film Workshop)

Fire of Waters (1965, b/w, sound, 6.5min)
Sound by Stan Brakhage.
"For years I had imposed the discipline on myself that if ever a single sound was needed anywhere on a track to go with an image I would put that sound in even if no other sound was needed in the whole film. That permitted me when I felt the need of slowed-down bird sounds (that is a bird's cry slowed down so that it became like a western musical instrument), to put it in where I felt it was needed. Then that caused me to feel the need of a sound of wind rising to a certain pitch at the very beginning. At the end then the speeded-up sound of Jane giving birth to Myrenna occurs on two levels in the last shot of the house. It definitely sounds like a dog in somebody's backyard in the drama sense of that scene, yelping in pain. It does actually carry the sense of a terror beyond that. That's how the sound came into it and balanced out." (Stan Brakhage, quoted by P. Adams Sitney in Visionary Film)

Passage Through: A Ritual (1990, color, sound, 49min)
Sound by Philip Corner: "Through the Mysterious Barricade (after F. Couperin) LUMEN 1 (for Stan Brakhage)".
"When I received the tape of Philip Corner's Through the Mysterious Barricade, Lumen 1 (after F. Couperin), he included a note that thanked me for my film, THE RIDDLE OF LUMEN, he'd just seen and which had in some way inspired this music. I, in turn, was so moved by the tape he sent I immediately asked his permission to `set it to film.' It required the most exacting editing process ever; and in the course of that work it occurred to me that I'd originally made THE RIDDLE OF LUMEN hoping someone would make an `answering' film and entertain my visual riddle in the manner of the riddling poets of yore. I most expected Hollis Frampton (because of Zorn's Lemma) to pick up the challenge; but he never did. In some sense I think composer Corner has - and now we have this dance of riddles as music and film combine to make `passage,' in every sense of the word, further possible." (Stan Brakhage)
"Six years ago, my whole life collapsed and I experienced psychodramatic sound combinations. I began working with composers again, and very rapidly came to a setting of picture to sound, so that in fact it was the sound then that would engender me to do pictures. The happiest combination has been Passage Through: A Ritual set to music by Philip Corner." (Stan Brakhage, 2/6/93 at Millennium Film Workshop)

Architect of Aesthetic: A Joel Schumacher Tribute

NOTE: Some Screenings in this series at the Egyptian, others at the Aero Theatre!

Joel Schumacher began his career as a costume designer, and his impeccable sense of visual design is evident in all of his directorial efforts, from his feature debut THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING WOMAN to his recent Sundance triumphTWELVE – yet this is no mere stylist. Throughout his career as a writer and director, Schumacher has traversed a wide variety of genres, subjects, and tones to create a diverse body of work. Dramas such as FALLING DOWN andFLATLINERS coexist with legal thrillers (THE CLIENT, A TIME TO KILL), and horror films (THE LOST BOYS, TOWN CREEK), while gritty, modestly budgeted character studies such as TIGERLAND and VERONICA GUERIN alternate with glossy studio franchise films including Schumacher's two BATMAN entries.

Join us for a selection of Schumacher's past works (including a 25th anniversary screening of ST. ELMO'S FIRE) as well as an advance screening of his latest film, TWELVE.

Friday, June 25 – 7:30 PM

Joel Schumacher Double Feature:FALLING DOWN, 1993, Warner Bros., 113 min. Dir. Joel Schumacher. When defense worker Michael Douglas loses his job and finds himself estranged from his family, he snaps and becomes a vigilante fighting for all the things he feels he and his generation have lost. The result is a chilling and moving satire thanks to Douglas’ pitch-perfect performance and Schumacher's empathetic treatment of his antihero.Trailer

FLATLINERS, 1990, Sony Repertory, 115 min. Dir. Joel Schumacher. An all-star cast of med students (Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin, Oliver Platt) experiments with death, stopping each others' hearts and "flatlining" before being revived. Until, that is, they soon discover their exercise has unleashed the secrets of their past in a supernaturally terrifying manner.Trailer |Buy Tickets Director Joel Schumacher will introduce the screenings.

Saturday, June 26 – 7:30 PM

Advance Screening! TWELVE, 2010, Hannover House, 93 min. Dir. Joel Schumacher.

Late Night Art | Video on the Loose: Freewaves and 20 Years of Media Arts


June 26, 2010 at the LACMA plaza

Celebrate the 20th anniversary of the LA-based new media arts organization Freewaves, with international experimental media art from the past 20 years, and a preview of the new John Baldessari retrospective. Enjoy food, drinks and a live DJ!

As part of its 20th anniversary celebration, Freewaves will present Video on the Loose at LACMA’s Late Night Art Event on Saturday, June 26, 2010, from 8-11pm. The event will animate the museum’s north piazza with 20+ experimental media art works produced over the past two decades. The videos span perspectives from the identity politics of the 1990s to post-9/11 reality checks, from deep inside the mass media landscape to observations from media makers in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

The evening includes four programs, with over 20 artists’ videos that move, amuse and bewilder

Squirm: Body-related, uncomfortable but spellbinding images, sounds and narratives

Trouble: Artists willing to broach danger and take it on as a complex subject

Pop Cop: Playful and critical responses to television ads, news, and authorities

Dual/Duel: Conflicts and contrasts coming from different points of view

Each of the 20+ videos will be looping continuously on separate monitors.

Featured artists
Brooke Alfaro; Barbie Liberation Organization; Caitlin Berrigan; Jaco Bouwer; Portia Cobb; Tony Cokes; John Davis; Stephane Degoutin, Marika Dermineur & Gwenola Wagon; Matt Dibble & David Chung; James Duesing; Daniel Mason; Matthew McDaniel; Meena Nanji; Michael O’Reilly; Johanna Priestley & Joan Gratz; John Richey; Marlon Riggs; Janice Tanaka; Aaron Valdez; and Zhou Xiaohu.

Related program
A dialogue with Freewaves Director Anne Bray & media art theorist Kenneth Rogers
Art Catalogues in LACMA store at 9:15 p.m.

Join in a dialogue about the basic questions underlying the book Video on the Loose: “What are the most important changes in the medium over the last 20 years?” and “What do you want the field of media arts to become?” Bray will highlight comments by many contributors in conversation with Rogers, who wrote the book’s primary essay about the problematic history of video art.

On the occasion of its anniversary, Freewaves has published a special edition book and DVD in recognition of its two decades of promoting access to and participation in new media arts. Video on the Loose: Freewaves and 20 years of media arts raises provocative questions about the nature of the medium, while arguing its contribution to broader social processes. Artists’ perspectives are interspersed throughout. Along with the book is a DVD documenting the evolution of the media arts as a medium for activism and aesthetic experimentation. The book + DVD may be purchased at LACMA’s Art Catalogues store.

Tickets for the Late Night Art event are $10. Advance tickets may be purchased at, LACMA’s Welcome Centers, or by phone at 323 857-6010. Tickets can also be purchased at the event.

Freewaves is a grassroots yet global nonprofit arts organization connecting innovative, relevant, independent new media from around the world. The organization is funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation; CHORA/Metabolic Studio/Annenberg Foundation/Lauren Bon; The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; The James Irvine Foundation; City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs; Getty Grant Program; Pasadena Art Alliance; National Endowment for the Arts; Los Angeles County Arts Commission; and Freewaves members.

Cinefamily's Comedy Shorts Showcase

Cinefamily's Comedy Shorts Showcase

Co-presented by Dublab

With ready access to video equipment, more and more of the best young upcoming comics are turning to making shorts films, rather than doing stand-up or sketch comedy. In Cinefamily's 1st Annual Comedy Shorts Showcase, you'll see pieces from a typically eclectic range of sources -- from Dublab-curated music videos to the newest additions to the YouTube classics canon (in better resolution than you've ever seen!), from Sundance official selections to outsider art obscurities existing way below the radar. We cap off this night of shits 'n giggles with the hit web series Drunk History's most very special episode: "Too Drunk History!!", in which all of the filmed participants got a little too wasted to tell a cohesive history book narrative. Whether through passing out, wimping out, raging out or simply spiraling out into such sloshy babble that it demands subtitles, it's a blast to watch these sauced lecturers fail so spectacularly.

Tickets - $12/free for members
