In the weeks leading up to it, Filmforum will host evenings with long-time Los Angeles-based filmmakers in evenings of old and new works.

Amy Halpern is a filmmaker and artist who works with light, camera and movement. She has been making abstract films since 1972.

Halpern moved to Los Angeles in 1974, where in 1975 with a handful of other filmmakers she founded (and named) the Los Angeles Independent Film Oasis, devoted to presentation of avant-garde film work, and completed a graduate degree in film at UCLA. She has worked on many Hollywood and independent feature films as gaffer and/or cinematographer, including Charles Burnett's My Brother's Wedding, Pat O'Neill's Decay of Fiction and David Lebrun's Breaking the Maya Code. In 1975 she was one of the founders of the Los Angeles Independent Film Oasis, devoted to presentation of avant-garde film work. She has also had a long career as a teacher of film and writing at U.S.C., Otis-Parsons Art Institute, Cal State L.A., and Cal State Northridge. Born and raised in New York City, Halpern studied & performed in modern dance with Anna Sokolow & Lynda Gudde, worked in the early 1970s in 3-D shadow-play with Ken Jacobs' New York Apparition Theatre and co-founded New York's Collective For Living Cinema.

CatAList Oxy Student TV Staff Openings

Hello everyone,
CatAList is looking to fill three senior staff positions. If you’re interested in taking on a role, see which of the available positions fits your interests and skill set.
Available positions:

-Assistant Editor
For any aspiring filmmakers, this is a tremendous opportunity to work with our Chief editor in putting the weekly episodes together.  You’ll be corralling the segments each week and putting them together in preparation for the Monday release online and in the Tiger Cooler.

-Assistant Web Designer
Our Senior Web Designer is a senior and will be looking to pass on the baton to a protégé. The position does require a little bit of existing web design knowledge. However, our senior designer will be taking you under his wing and showing you the ins and outs of our website and how to maintain it.

-Commercial Director
Commercial director is in charge of working with 1 campus group or organization a week in conceptualizing and bringing to fruition a 45-second commercial that will air on the network.  This would be a perfect opportunity for someone that is immersed in creativity and is a good communicator.
Note: Although not a senior staff position, we are also looking for a host and filmmaker to join the staff and go forward for an idea we have for a new segment. Whether you want to be in front or behind the camera, both are viable options for a novice who wants to get their feet wet in either arena of acting and filmmaking.  
Please be cognizant that these positions do require a weekly commitment and will require your diligence for a few hours a week. With that said, we are a pretty awesome nucleus and the experience of working on a media staff is rewarding in every sense. Email if you interested.

Junior Film & Media Studies major Alex Zeldin won Best Picture at the 2010 Clifton Film Festival in Clifton, VA for his project MOTHERWORLD. The piece has also been selected to screen next month at the Mid Atlantic Black Film Festival in Norfolk, VA. 

Congrats to Alex! 

Synopsis for MOTHERWORLD: 

Tired of living with his over-bearing mother, Art would give anything to escape dealing with her rules anymore.  After his wish comes true, Art is thrown into a world where everyone he meets treats him as if they were his mother.  Art soon realizes that having many mothers could be a whole lot worse than having just one

Volunteering Opportunity

MOCA (the LA Museum of Contemporary Art) is putting on an interesting Latin-American Light and Space exhibition titled Suprasensorial from December-January. They are seeking Oxy volunteers to work as education guides for the exhibition from December 12-February 7. Training/orientation would occur the first week of December.
The volunteers will be assisting visitors with Oiticica pool in 3 hour shifts on Saturday, Sunday, and Thursdays, when the pool is open.

This would be a great opportunity to explore the intersection between media, installation art, and museum culture in Los Angeles.

Contact AHVA alum and Oxy Arts Coordinator Zachary Kaplan '08 for more information (


Suprasensorial: Experiments in Light, Color, and Space is the first museum exhibition to situate pioneering Latin American artists among the international canon of those working with light and space. The exhibition aims to illuminate the field by expanding the dialogue surrounding light-and-space practices in contemporary visual art beyond the California tradition of the late 1960s and '70s to include pivotal Latin American impulses expressed more than a decade earlier. Organized by MOCA Curator Alma Ruiz, Suprasensorial: Experiments in Light, Color, and Space will position Latin America as the source of new ideas about the nature and function of art through the re-creation of important large-scale installations by five highly regarded and influential artists: Carlos Cruz-Diez (b. 1923), Lucio Fontana (1899-1968), Julio Le Parc (b. 1928), Hélio Oiticica (1937-80), and Jesus Rafael Soto (1923-05). Like Southern California–based artists Peter Alexander, Larry Bell, Robert Irwin, James Turrell, and DeWain Valentine, Cruz-Diez, Fontana, Le Parc, Oiticica, and Soto may be better classified as inventors rather than as painters, sculptors, or photographers. Each has conducted groundbreaking investigations of human perception and sensation, consistently challenging preexisting standards of art as a static two-dimensional experience in ways that have provoked new and extraordinary levels of viewer engagement. Suprasensorial: Experiments in Light, Color, and, Space seeks to underscore their innovative contributions to contemporary art, properly acknowledging their sophisticated manifestations as essential to the ongoing global light-and-space tradition. Following its presentation at MOCA, Suprasensorial: Experiments in Light, Color, and, Space will travel to the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington D.C., where it will be on view from June 23 through September 11, 2011. The exhibition will be accompanied by a generously illustrated 112-page catalogue featuring a selected exhibition history, bibliography, and major essay by Ruiz, who will present an overarching analysis of each work featured in the exhibition and will link the artistic intentions of Cruz-Diez, Fontana, Le Parc, Oiticica, and Soto to those of historic California light-and-space artists as well as younger artists working today.

Suprasensorial: Experiments in Light, Color, and Space is presented by Fundación Jumex.

Major support is provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and Mandy and Cliff Einstein. Generous additional support is provided by Betye Monell Burton, FLAX Foundation, and the Consulate General of Brazil, Los Angeles.
