  mirage. Bill Daniel (in person, with his Mostly True reissue) kicks in

11/23
Los Angeles, California: Echo Park Film Center
http://www.echoparkfilmcenter.org/
7:30 pm, 1200 N. Alvarado St (at Sunset)

 ALL WATCHED OVER BY MACHINES OF LOVING GRACE
  $5 / The best way to spend your Black Friday is seeing British cinematic
  polymath Adam Curtis' All Watched Over By Machines of Loving Grace. His
  latest film is a harrowing look at capitalism and colonialism through
  Curtis' trademark archival BBC footage and pop music collage. The film
  is made up of three sections exploring the idea that rose up in the
  1990s that computers could create a new kind of stable world—a world
  where a new kind of global capitalism could thrive free of all risk. The
  best kind of capitalist horror movie, Adam Curtis examines ideas from
  disparate strands of society and shows how eerily connected they are
  through the shaky joint logic of political, technological, and
  scientific thought. It'll put a healthy fear of capitalism in you and,
  in all likelihood, prevent you from enjoying Black Friday ever again.
  180 minutes, video. Note early start time!

 NEW WORKS SALON VII
  $5 / Several local and visiting artists will present in-progress or
  recently completed works. Sean Batton will present 16mm footage from a
  recent trip to Tokyo. Chris Girard will integrate blurry photographs
  with slices of words to create a live collage poetry making session; the
  placement of the photographs next to words expresses the dissolution of
  the blur through the words. Cosmo Segurson will present Super 8 footage
  from his recent trip to Tokyo, unrelated to Mr. Batton's. Elizabeth
  DiGiovanni will present two recent video works, Now and Then and Spirit
  Evidence, which deal with collecting and imaging the traces, residues,
  and evidence from the realm of spirits, ghosts, and memory. Plus others

 MCCORMICK’S GREAT NORTHWEST + 433 PICTURES’ NOBODIES
  Our longtime microcinema accomplice Matt McCormick personally introduces
  the Cali premiere of his experimental travelog, faithfully recreating
  the 3,200-mile road-trip of four Seattle women in 1958. Fifty years
  later, McCormick discovered their scrapbook in a thrift store, and so
  set out on the road, following their route as precisely as possible. His
  patient observations constitute a lyrical time-capsule, revealing how
  the landscape, architecture, and culture of the Northwest has changed
  over the past half-century. ALSO: Robert Machoian and Rodrigo Ojeda-Beck
  premiere their 433 Pictures project, American Nobodies, a half-hr suite
  of poetic miniatures, finding complexity and meaning in small moments
  and overlooked details.

New York, New York: Anthology Film Archives
http://www.anthologyfilmarchives.org/
4:15 pm, 32 2nd Avenue

 ESSENTIAL CINEMA: LAUREL AND HARDY
  Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy are the movies' greatest comic duo, the
  quintessential dumb and dumber odd-couple. Though critically
  overshadowed by Chaplin, Keaton, and Lloyd, they were enormously
  popular, and proved a major influence on Abbott & Costello, Lucille Ball
  & Vivian Vance, and Jackie Gleason & Art Carney, not to mention Samuel
  Beckett (they were an inspiration for WAITING FOR GODOT), Roman Polanski
  (who paid homage to them in his existentialist short films FAT AND LEAN
  and TWO MEN AND A WARDROBE), and Ken Jacobs (whose ONTIC ANTICS
  deconstructs one of their films)." –David Mulkins COUNTY HOSPITAL (1932,
  20 minutes, 16mm, b&w) Directed by James Parrott. THE MUSIC BOX (1932,
  30 minutes, 16mm, b&w) Directed by James Parrott. THEM THAR HILLS (1934,
  20 minutes, 16mm, b&w) Directed by Charley Rogers. TIT FOR TAT (1935, 20
  minutes, 16mm, b&w) Directed by Charley Rogers. Total running time: ca.
  95 minutes.

New York, New York: Anthology Film Archives
http://www.anthologyfilmarchives.org/
8:00 pm, 32 2nd Avenue

 ESSENTIAL CINEMA: CHRISTOPHER MACLAINE
  "The few facts that are known about Maclaine are, at best, sketchy. He
  was a published poet, a sort of down and out San Francisco bohemian who
  later became one of the psychic casualties of that scene. His last years
  were spent at Sunnyacres, a state mental hospital in Fairfield,
  California. These films, along with Ron Rice's, are clearly the most
  significant work to come out of the beat period." –J.J. Murphy All films
  preserved by Anthology Film Archives. THE MAN WHO INVENTED GOLD (1957,
  14 minutes, 16mm) BEAT (1958, 6 minutes, 16mm) SCOTCH HOP (1959, 5.5
  minutes, 16mm) THE END (1953, 35 minutes, 16mm) "Six stories of people
  on the last day of their lives. Most are about to commit suicide, or
  some metaphorical equivalent, but the mushroom cloud with which the film
  begins and ends reminds us that, as Maclaine's voice intones on the
  sound track, we await 'the grand suicide of the human race' – his
  conceit is that his characters have reached the end of their personal
  ropes the day before a nuclear holocaust. Throughout the film he
  compares the dehumanizing effects of mass culture to the dehumanizing
  effects of personal despair, weaving these two threads together until
  the mannequins he films in store windows, the anonymous people he films
  on the street, and his characters all seem variations on the same
  half-living, half-dead persona." –Fred Camper Total running time: ca. 65
  minutes.
