5:45 pm, 32 2nd Avenue

 ESSENTIAL CINEMA: GENET/FRANK & LESLIE PROGRAM 
  Jean Genet UN CHANT D'AMOUR 1950, 26 minutes, 16mm, b&w, silent. Jean
  Genet's poetic expression of male eroticism pitted against the confines
  of prison cells and a homophobic state… a powerfully resonant work that
  explores individual freedom and the laws of desire. Robert Frank &
  Alfred Leslie PULL MY DAISY 1959, 28 minutes, 35mm, b&w. A largely
  spontaneous experiment, arranged in 1959 by Robert Frank along with
  Alfred Leslie. They enlisted the participation of Jack Kerouac, who
  offered in place of an original screenplay a stage play he'd never
  finished writing, "The Beat Generation." The plot is based on an
  incident in the life of Neal Cassady and his wife Carolyn. They're
  raising a family and trying to fit in with their suburban neighbors, and
  one night they invite a respectable neighborhood bishop over for dinner.
  But Neal's Beat friends crash the party, and that Marx Brothers-like
  scenario is the closest thing the film has to a storyline. Total running
  time: ca. 60 minutes.

Cork, Ireland: Black Sun
http://blacksuncork.tumblr.com/
13:30, Triskel Christchurch Cinema

 BLACK SUN CINEMA
  Black Sun, Cork's weirdo/outer limits music and film event, is
  presenting its first ever all-film event in partnership with Triskel
  Christchurch. Adventurous audiences with a taste for the more far-out
  side of experimental cinema will be treated to a whole afternoon of
  dreamlike and hauntingly unsettling avant-garde visions. American
  underground legend James Fotopoulos' feature The Nest (2003) "makes it
  seem as though he is some extraterrestrial visitor photographing humans
  for the first time" (Variety) and is ideal, mind-warping viewing for
  David Lynch fans who think they've seen everything. The five-film
  mini-retrospective of Frans Zwartjes' claustrophobically stylised short
  films fully justifies the reputation of this poet of voyeurism and
  sexual tension as perhaps Holland's preeminent experimental filmmaker.
  And three of Ireland's most uncompromising alternative filmmakers,
  Rouzbeh Rashidi, Dean Kavanagh and Maximilian Le Cain, will be on hand
  to present a series of their more disturbing shorts. Visit
  www.blacksuncork.tumblr.com for more details.

5:30 pm, 32 2nd Avenue

 ESSENTIAL CINEMA: GRANT/JACOBS & FLEISCHNER PROGRAM
  Dwinell Grant COMPOSITION #2 CONTRATHEMIS 1941, 5 minutes, 16mm, color,
  silent. "An attempt to develop visual abstract themes and to
  counterpoint them in a planned, formal composition." –D.G. "Austere and
  chaste combinations, with subtle manipulation of structure, density and
  rhythm."–William Moritz STOP MOTION TESTS 1942, 3 minutes, 16mm, color,
  silent. A self-portrait. COLOR SEQUENCE 1943, 3 minutes, 16mm, color,
  silent. "Pure solid-color frames which fade, mutate and flicker. A
  research into color rhythms and perceptual phenomena." –William Moritz
  Ken Jacobs LITTLE STABS AT HAPPINESS 1959-63, 18 minutes, 16mm, color.
  Featuring Jack Smith. "Material was cut in as it came out of the camera,
  embarrassing moments intact. 100' rolls timed well with music on old
  78s. I was interested in immediacy, a sense of ease, and an art where
  suffering was acknowledged but not trivialized with dramatics. Whimsy
  was our achievement as well as breaking out of step." –K.J. Ken Jacobs &
  Bob Fleischner BLONDE COBRA 1959-63, 35 minutes, 16-to-35mm blow-up,
  b&w/color. Featuring Jack Smith. Preserved by Anthology, with the
  generous support of The Film Foundation, The National Film Preservation
  Foundation, Simon Lund and Cineric, Inc. "BLONDE COBRA is an erratic
  narrative – no, not really a narrative, it's only stretched out in time
  for convenience of delivery. It's a look in on an exploding life, on a
  man of imagination suffering pre-fashionable Lower East Side deprivation
  and consumed with American 1950s, 40s, 30s disgust. Silly, self-pitying,
  guilt-strictured and yet triumphing – on one level – over the situation
  with style… enticing us into an absurd moral posture the better to
  dismiss us with a regal 'screw off.'" –K.J. Total running time: ca. 70
  minutes.

Toronto, Ontario, Canada: Early Monthly Segments
http://earlymonthlysegments.org/
8:00 PM, Gladstone Hotel 1214 Queen Street West

 EARLY MONTHLY SEGMENTS #42 = SUSAN SONTAG'S PROMISED LANDS
  We're thrilled to present a recently preserved 16mm print of Susan
  Sontag's only documentary. Filmed during the bitter end of Israel's Yom
  Kippur War in 1973, and subsequently banned in Israel upon release, she
  called it her "most personal film." From Harvard Film Archive: In her
  writing as in this film, Sontag preferred "collage, assemblage, and
  inventory." Lingering shots of mourners at the Wailing Wall, abandoned
  remains of humans and their machines, and soldiers reenacting war in a
  psychiatric ward interact with sequences of herdsmen minding goats,
  people chatting at the market, and children holding hands. "It is a film
  about a mental landscape...as well as a physical and political one."
  said Sontag. Unidentified voices sometimes reinforce, sometimes counter
  her visual chronicle – itself containing many contradictions amid the
  grief and gunfire. Pondering the origins and probable outcome of "two
  rights opposing each other," Israeli writer Yoram Kaniuk and physicist
  Yuval Ne'eman typify variations of the intellectual speculation that
  continues today. Painfully present, Promised Lands reverberates like the
  bells in the opening shots or the recurring heart monitor sound
  flat-lining and coming to life again … ominous yet hopeful, always a
  lament. WEBSITE: www.earlymonthlysegments.org

 TONEWHEEL/FILM REEL: PERSONAL FILM WORK OF DOUGLAS KATELUS
  Tonewheel / Film Reel is a program of 16mm film and video work by
  Douglas Katelus, a San Francisco based filmmaker and organist. These
  movies are derived from observation while occasionally searching for
  what sits below those endless layers of asphalt, concrete and gasoline.
  The evening's program will be in two parts. First a never-ending road
  trip followed by an homage to dead technology and lost landscape.
  Numerous works will be screened produced between 2004–2012. The most
  recent of which are set to a live musical performance on the Hammond
  Organ.

7:00pm, Phyllis Wattis Theater

 CINDY SHERMAN SELECTS FILM SERIES: THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE
  In conjunction with SFMOMA's Cindy Sherman retrospective, the artist has
  selected a few of the films that have shaped her vision. Reflecting a
  wide spectrum of genres and eras, the works shown here highlight the
  extraordinary range of her interests and influences. This week is a
  screening of Tobe Hooper's 1974 horror film classic, The Texas Chainsaw
  Massacre, which follows a group of young travelers whose car breaks down
  in the middle of nowhere to their misfortune. Known for originating many
  of the staples of the slasher genre — such as a faceless killer and
  power tools as weapons — it also functioned as a critique of the meat
  industry. Ticketing costs are $5 general admission; free for SFMOMA
  members or with museum admission (requires a free ticket, which can be
  picked up in the Haas Atrium).

Chicago, Illinois: Chicago Filmmakers
http://www.chicagofilmmakers.org/
8:15 PM, Buttercup Park, 4901 N. Sheridan Rd.

 ENVIRONMENTAL FILM SERIES - THE WHALE
  New York Times Critic's Pick. Narrated by Ryan Reynolds, The Whale is a
  remarkable true story about Luna, a young killer whale, who is orphaned
  off the coast of British Columbia, and adopted by the residents of
  Nootka Sound. Luna quickly endears himself to them by demonstrating
  affection and an ability to communicate, and indeed seems to thrive on
  human contact until the government steps in to separate them for the
  animal's own protection. Full of beautiful scenery and strange twists,
  The Whale also raises compelling questions about the emotional lives of
  animals that continue to elude human understanding. (D. Suzanne Chisholm
  and Michael Parfit, 2011, 85 min.) Free admission

 BREAKING GROUND: 60 YEARS OF AUSTRIAN EXPERIMENTAL CINEMA
  The camera's rolling and we've boarded a rollercoaster of visual and
  sound voyages. This opening program combines an excitingly eclectic
  range of artistic modes and represents both an introduction to what have
  become the hallmarks of Austrian experimental cinema and the perfect
  place to begin 10 adventures into cinema and its history. Whether
  reconstructing found footage, using sophisticated multiple points of
  view, restaging documentaries or undertaking structural explorations,
  these techniques all become rhythmic tools for our aural and visual
  pleasure. Works in this program include FILM IST 1: MOVEMENT AND TIME
  (2002); SCHÖNBERG (1990); YES? OUI? YA? (2002); MIRROR MECHANICS (2005);

 ESSENTIAL CINEMA: THE PARSON'S WIDOW
  by Carl Th. Dreyer No English intertitles (English synopsis available),
  1921, 78 minutes, 35mm, b&w, silent (PRASTANKAN) A lyrical, early Dreyer
  comedy. A young parson wins a plum parish in 17th century Norway, but is
  obliged to marry the widow of his deceased predecessor and pretend his
  attractive young fiancée is his sister. The master's touch is evident in
  the close-ups of the pastor's would-be rivals and parishioners and a
  slow pan presaging the 360-degree views of VAMPYR.

 A PLACE ON EARTH
  With an introduction by filmmaker and restorationist Ross Lipman
  (schedule permitting). A Place On Earth is a fiction film made with the
  participation of a real commune in Moscow, one in which the director
  himself lived. As with Palms, Aristakisyan's previous work, A Place on
  Earth is not just a film; it is an encounter, and it leaves one
  unsettled by its radical ethical demands. Says Aristakisyan: "The film
  does not leave room to maneuver and avoid change... It precludes the
  very possibility for indulgence in collective delusions after having
  seen it... It also precludes the possibility for neatly sweeping its
  contents under the intellectual rug...This is not a socially conscious
  film. There is no society... It is not a philosophical film either.
  There are no authorial points of view or ideas. It has to be
  admitted—this film is dangerous. Truly dangerous." Dir. Artur
  Aristakisyan, 2001, 120min, projected from DVD

7:30 p.m., 10899 Wilshire Boulevard (intersection of Wilshire and Westwood 
Boulevards)

 BREAKING GROUND: 60 YEARS OF AUSTRIAN EXPERIMENTAL CINEMA - 2. DAILY
 BUSINESS
  Observations of everyday events and life are transposed with irony and
  humor through choreographic touches, performative actions or documentary
  real time. Static scenes become mini cinematographic voyages: a kiss
  enhanced through repetition and recreation, bicycles loaded into an
  elevator or being repaired, workers finishing their day, or bodybuilding
  as an artistic performance in itself. The ordinary is subtly tweaked to
  create wry visual motifs for our undisguised pleasure. Works in this
  program include HERNALS (1967); BYKETROUBLE (1998); PIECE TOUCHEE
  (1989); NACH "PIECE TOUCHEE" (1998); HOTEL ROCCALBA (2008); BODYBUILDING
  (1965-66); LIVINGROOM (1991); DANKE, ES HAT MICH SEHR GEFREUT (1987).
  Total running time: 68 min.

 ESSENTIAL CINEMA: VAMPYR
  by Carl Th. Dreyer In Danish with no subtitles (English synopsis
  available), 1931-32, 70 minutes, 35mm, b&w "Imagine that we are sitting
  in a very ordinary room. Suddenly we are told that there is a corpse
  behind the door. Instantly, the room we are sitting in has taken on
  another look. The light, the atmosphere have changed, though they are
  physically the same. This is because we have changed and the objects are
  as we conceive them. This is the effect I wanted to produce in VAMPYR."
  –Carl Dreyer

 ESSENTIAL CINEMA: THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC
  by Carl Th. Dreyer No English intertitles (English synopsis available),
  1927-28, 98 minutes, 35mm, b&w, silent (LA PASSION DE JEANNE D'ARC) A
  work that exemplifies Dreyer's philosophy: simplicity is the most
  complex idea of all. Although renowned for its spare acts, lack of
  embellishment, and use of simple shots, Dreyer's masterpiece reveals the
  natural complexity of an un-retouched face (often existing alone,
  filling up the frame) and a landscape of history as individual as the
  lines on that face. Made in 1927-28, it continues to haunt the cinema,
  looking more and more avant-garde as the years go by.

 ESSENTIAL CINEMA: DAY OF WRATH
  by Carl Th. Dreyer In Danish with no subtitles (English synopsis
  available), 1943, 100 minutes, 35mm, b&w (VREDENS DAG) "Carl Dreyer's
  art begins to unfold at the point where most other directors give up.
  Witchcraft and martyrdom are his themes – but his witches don't ride
  broomsticks, they ride the erotic fears of their persecutors. It is a
  world that suggests a dreadful fusion of Hawthorne and Kafka." –Pauline
  Kael

 ESSENTIAL CINEMA: ORDET
  by Carl Th. Dreyer In Danish with no subtitles (English synopsis
  available), 1955, 132 minutes, 35mm, b&w An existential morality essay
  by the master of the long take, in which a man who believes he is Jesus
  Christ soon begins to convince those around him. Based on the play by
  Kaj Munk, ORDET is a meditation on faith and fanaticism.
