 L.A. FILMFORUM PRESENTS CHANGE OF LIFE (MUDAR DE VIDA), DIRECTED BY PAULO
 ROCHA
  CHANGE OF LIFE (Mudar de Vida) Directed by Paulo Rocha. With Geraldo del
  Rey, Isabel Ruth, Maria Barroso; Portugal, 1966, 35mm, b/w, 90 min.
  Portuguese with English subtitles. The second and arguably most
  important film by Paulo Rocha (b. 1935), one of the central figures of
  the Novo Cinema, Change of Life is a direct response to Oliveira's Rite
  of Spring (and, indirectly, to Varda's Pointe Courte) and an important
  precursor to the radical documentary-shaped fiction of Trás-os-Montes
  and, much later, the work of Pedro Costa and Miguel Gomes. Part of THE
  FILMS AND LEGACY OF ANTÓNIO REIS AND MARGARIDA CORDEIRO, presented in
  association with the UCLA Film & Television Archive. Please note: The
  first three programs in this series will be presented by the UCLA Film &
  Television Archive on July 6, 7, and 9. Please visit their website at

 FILM IST. (7-12)
  by Gustav Deutsch 2002, 93min., 35mm. Film Notes Scouring moving image
  archives throughout the world, Deutsch has assembled a vast collection
  of silent-film imagery, much of it buried in vaults for decades. From
  this incredible range of material, Deutsch has composed a highly
  suggestive, quasi-narrative, but essentially enigmatic mosaic which
  demonstrates both the wealth of fascinating early-20th-century
  documentation bequeathed to us from the silent era, as well as the sheer
  diversity of human experience reflected through the cinema. "While the
  first six sections of my tableau film, FILM IST., are primarily
  concerned with the scientific laboratory as the birthplace of the
  medium, the six subsequent sections are dedicated to the variety theater
  and the studio as the cradle of cinematography." –G.D.

 PRIVATE TERRITORY FILM TOUR: EINKASVÆÐI
  PRIVATE TERRITORY is a program of films on 16mm and video that
  originated in Boston and is traveling to several Northern European
  cities between July 18th and August 19th. Inspired by the curator's
  voyage from her current home in Boston to her native home in Saint
  Petersburg, the program was collected around the ideas of home,
  interiority and self-reflection. In a couple stops along the way, the
  effort of cultural exchange will be taken further through collaboration
  on joint programs with local
  curators.http://www.privaterritoryfilmtour.com, http://www.bioparadis.is

 COUNTER BALANCE :  LIVE:CONCERT + FILM:J.-M.STRAUB
  On each night of this ongoing series, Counter Balance presents a live
  performance followed by a film. Pairings may be based on narrative
  themes, aesthetics, techniques or simply on the performer's taste.
  Please join us for the first program of the series: Andrew Lafkas,
  .where all Motion are one.. aprox 60 min, featuring: Karen Waltuch
  viola, Adam Diller bass clarinet , Andrew Lafkas doublebass, Leif
  Sundstrom percussion, Barry Weisblat radio. A new piece written
  expressly for this event. where all Motion are one is structured in two
  parts, each part with two subsections. The subsections in the first part
  occur sequentially, while the subsections in the second part can occur
  simultaneously. "It is because of (my fellow performers) that this piece
  is possible. The material was conceived with them, as much as their
  instruments in mind." -AL followed by Jean-Marie Straub's The
  Bridegroom, the Comedienne and the Pimp. 1968. 16mm print. 23min. ––"An
  expressionist theater piece by Ferdinand Bruckner is enclosed by two
  'real life' sequences in this didactic experiment, which examines the
  logic of fiction, and the question of realism in the cinema. The main
  scenic elements in Straub's three-part work show Munich street hustling,
  a wedding benediction, and an epilogue in which three poems of St. John
  of the Cross are read and a pimp (played by Fassbinder) gets killed."

7:30 pm, 32 2nd Avenue

 CUT & PASTE PROGRAM 1 
  PROGRAM 1: Illustrating the varying possibilities of forming new
  meanings via the pairing of found elements, this program explores the
  results of combination in 21st-century collage animation – from
  classical paper-based techniques to contemporary functions via mash-ups,
  samples, and digital manipulation. Nesting thirty-somethings, fluttering
  Viewmaster florals, re-imagined Muybridge icons, and bouncing DVD logos
  reveal themes of destruction and creation, waste and resourceful
  innovation. Curated by Jodie Mack. Selected filmmakers in person! Amy
  Lockhart THE COLLAGIST (2009, 2 minutes, video) Shirin Mozaraffi THE
  STORY OF AMA AND BABA (2009, 7 minutes, video) Gretchen Hogue WHERE'S MY

7/21
Chicago, Illinois: Chicago Filmmakers
http://www.chicagofilmmakers.org/
5:00 PM, National Pastime Theater, 941 W. Lawrence Ave.

 SOUNDINGS: FILMS BY JAMES HERBERT
  Co-presented with National Pastime Theater as part of their "Naked July"
  Festival. For The National Pastime Theater's "Naked July: Art Stripped
  Down" summer festival, Chicago Filmmakers is presenting a retrospective
  of work by James Herbert. Although he was better known for the music
  videos he directed for R.E.M. (It's The End of The World As We Know It),
  Herbert made a series of amazing short films and a few acclaimed
  features. Each of these films is a highly stylized nude study of
  beautiful young heterosexual couples in decayed settings in the American
  south (Herbert is based in Athens, Georgia) that suggest new beginnings
  from old ruins: Automan (1988, 20 min.) takes place in the back seat of
  a broken down car, Piano (1988, 20 min.) in a crumbling theater, and
  Soundings (1986, 20 min.) in an old prairie house. Unlike the others,
  Frontiers (1984, 20 min.) is shot in a studio, but the juxtaposition of
  sexual contact with the audio recording of a recent argument conveys a
  similar interest in cycles of struggle and evolution. (1984-88, 80 min.
  total, 16mm) Admission: $8

New York, New York: Anthology Film Archives

5:00 pm, 32 2nd Avenue

 ESSENTIAL CINEMA: HOLLIS FRAMPTON PROGRAM
  ZORNS LEMMA 1970, 60 minutes, 16mm, color. "A major poetic work. Created
  and put together by a very clear eye-head, this original and complex
  abstract work moves beyond the letters of the alphabet, beyond words and
  beyond Freud. If you don't understand it the first time you see it,
  don't despair, see it again! When you finally 'get it,' a small light,
  possibly a candle, will light itself inside your forehead." –Ernie Gehr
  & HAPAX LEGOMENA I: (nostalgia) 1971, 36 minutes, 16mm, b&w. "Nostalgia,
  beginning as an ironic look upon a personal past, creates its own filmic
  time, a past and future generated by the expectations elicited by its
  basic disjunctive strategy." –Annette Michelson "In nostalgia the time
  it takes for a photograph to burn (and thus confirm its
  two-dimensionality) becomes the clock within the film, while Frampton
  plays the critic, asynchronously glossing, explicating, narrating,
  mythologizing his earlier art, and his earlier life, as he commits them
  both to the fire of a labyrinthine structure; for Borges too was one of
  his earlier masters, and he grins behind the facades of logic,
  mathematics, and physical demonstrations which are the formal metaphors
  for most of Frampton's films." –P. Adams Sitney Total running time: ca.
  100 minutes.

 CUT & PASTE PROGRAM 2
  PROGRAM 2: Harry Smith [OUTTAKES FROM HARRY SMITH'S OZ] ca. 1962, 23.5
  minutes, 35mm. Much to our surprise, Anthology recently recovered a
  number of original 35mm negative camera rolls by revered
  animator/alchemist/ethnomusicographer Harry Smith. The reels had been,
  unknown to all, sitting in a lab since 1967. The footage contains
  camera, focus, and exposure tests for OZ, Smith's amazing, abandoned
  feature-length adaptation of L. Frank Baum's classic tale. While
  Anthology has preserved and regularly presents Smith's NO. 16: OZ, THE
  TIN WOODMAN'S DREAM (1967), which contains the completed excerpt THE
  APPROACH TO EMERALD CITY, much of the material in these two reels is
  different. Raw footage that was never intended to be viewed as anything
  other than dailies, these alluring outtakes are resoundingly beautiful,
  and like all things Smith, deeply mysterious. & Lawrence Jordan SOPHIE'S
  PLACE 1986, 90 minutes, 16mm. "[T]he greatest epic animation film ever,
  yr wondrous SOPHIE'S PLACE…" –Stan Brakhage "Full hand-painted cut-out
  animation. … I call it an 'alchemical autobiography.' The film begins in
  a paradisiacal garden. It then proceeds to the interior of the Mosque of
  St. Sophia. More and more the film develops into episodes centering
  around one form or another of Sophia, an early Greek and Gnostic
  embodiment of spiritual wisdom. She is seen emanating light waves and
  symbolic objects. (But I must emphasize that I do not know the exact
  significance of any of the symbols in the film any more than I know the
  meaning of my dreams, nor do I know the meaning of the episodes. I hope
  that they – the symbols and the episodes – set off poetic associations
  in the viewer. I mean them to be entirely open to the viewer's own
  interpretation.)" –L.J.

7:30pm (box office opens 6:30, doors open 7), Spielberg Theatre at the 
Egyptian, 6712 Hollywood Blvd.

 L.A. FILMFORUM PRESENTS GLóRIA, DIRECTED BY MANUELA VIEGAS
  GLÓRIA Directed by Manuela Viegas. With Jean Christophe Bouvet,
  Francisco Relvas, Raquel Marques. Portugal/France/Spain 1999, 35mm,
  color, 110 min. Portuguese with English subtitles. Possibly the Los
  Angeles premiere. The first and only feature film to date by influential
  editor Manuela Viegas (Costa's O Sangue, João Cesar Monteiro's
  Silvestre) is a stylish coming of age tale and a moving portrait of the
  slow death of a rural Portuguese town. Co-written by Viegas and Joaquim
  Sapinho, Glória is a nuanced exploration of first love's dangerous
  exhilaration, awakened in the eponymous thirteen-year-old by the release
  from prison and homecoming of the stationmaster's older and enigmatic
  son. A central figure of the Portuguese film scene of the 1980s and
  1990s, Viegas taught alongside Reis in the Escola Superior. Tickets: $10
  general; $6 students/seniors; free for Filmforum members. Available at
  Brown Paper tickets: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/257702 Part
