Films that think, images that beat, sounds which play ping-pong. This program represents an intense capsule reflecting diverse and exciting talents in contemporary Spanish avant-garde cinema. Coming from darkness, animation, found footage and the exploration of visual and sonic textures describe the illness and cure of the individual in the present, the opening of other spaces and dimensions, luminous new landscapes, paranormal events. "They are already here. Or maybe they are just in our imagination. One way or another, unexpected things happen…"

Middle East Film Series - Divine Intervention

*7pm - Fowler 202 - Wednesday Night*
***December 1st  *

Divine Intervention (2002 - 92 min. - Arabic with English subtitles). By
Israeli director Elia Suleiman. Some reviewers have compared Suleiman to
Woody Allen and Charlie Chaplin, presumably because he has Allen's
intelligent, self-deprecating humor and Chaplin's gift for silent
comedy. This not a silent film, but an intense comedy about daily life
in the West Bank and Israel.  It is a surreal black comedy that records
a day in the life of a Palestinian living in Nazareth, whose girlfriend
lives several checkpoints away in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

A performance by Vaginal Davis
in conjunction with The Artists Museum

Saturday, January 22, 2011, 8pm
Ahmanson Auditorium
MOCA Grand Ave.

Inspired by Andy Warhol's screen tests, and the midnight performances of Jack Smith, this expanded cinema piece is a new work created by Vaginal Davis, an originator of the homo-core punk movement and a gender-queer art-music icon. Berlin based, Ms Davis made her name in LA's club performance scene, and has earned herself a similar notoriety as a cultural antagonist and erotic provocateur, renowned for her performance, experimental film and video practice. This original work will be staged at MOCA for one night only and will feature production and costumes design by Jonathan Berger, and appearances by special invited guests.
