Boyle Heights, California, January 2012 -- The 2012 Reel Rasquache Art & Film Festival (RRAFF) returns to East Los Angeles thanks to the presenting sponsorship of Casa 0101 ( www.casa0101.org ). In its 9th consecutive year, RRAFF12 will take place May 18-20, 2012 at the newly expanded Casa 0101 facilities in the heart of the burgeoning Boyle Heights 1st Street arts corridor.

Walking distance from the Metro Gold Line Mariachi Plaza station, the new Casa 0101 home is located near the corner of 1st and Louis Streets and includes a 99-seat theatre, art gallery, and learning center. López and Casa 0101 Executive Director, Emmanuel Deleage are long-standing followers and supporters of RRAFF.

An Oxy Alum is being featured at American Cinematheque!

“Splinters in a documentary made by DWA Alumnus Adam Pesce. Our department first supported Adam to go abroad for research when he was a Junior, he participated in the UN semester, and his senior comprehensive (on eco-tourism) was supervised by me. His documentary has received critical acclaim from a number of quarters -- try to catch this screening. If not, we will try to get him over to Oxy sometime soon. We have always encouraged our students to make documentaries - our subject matter and perspective lends itself well to this kind of documentation, it is wonderful that Adam was so motivated to pursue this kind of research.”

THE LEGACY PROJECT SCREENING SERIES

NQC @ 20: REVISITING NEW QUEER CINEMA

Thanks to the support of the Andrew J. Kuehn, Jr. Foundation, we are proud to inaugurate a series of Legacy Project screenings commemorating the introduction of "New Queer Cinema" into the queer film vernacular 20 years ago. Critic and scholar B. Ruby Rich (professor, UC Santa Cruz) coined the term in 1992 to denote a group of films that depicted queer lives and realities in transgressive terms and beautiful forms. A hotly-debated critical distinction ever since, "New Queer Cinema" indicates both specific works and an impulse that still informs certain queer artists in film, and it is often invoked as a standard against which contemporary LGBT media is compared. Our salute to an idea, and to its representative films and artists, will continue through the first half of 2012, with guest filmmakers and speakers on site to engage in conversation and debate.
