 ESSENTIAL CINEMA: BRAKHAGE PITTSBURGH TRILOGY
  EYES 1970, 36 min, 16mm, silent. "After wishing for years to be
  given-the-opportunity of filming some of the more 'mystical' occupations
  of our Times – some of the more obscure Public Figures which the average
  imagination turns into 'bogeymen'... viz.: Policemen, Doctors, Soldiers,
  Politicians, etc.: – I was at last permitted to ride in a Pittsburgh
  police car, camera in hand, the final several days of September 1970."
  –S.B. & DEUS EX 1971, 34 min, 16mm, silent. "I have been many times very
  ill in hospitals; and I drew on all that experience while making DEUS EX
  in West Penn. Hospital of Pittsburgh; but I was especially inspired by
  the memory of one incident in an emergency room of San Francisco's
  Mission District: while waiting for medical help, I had held myself
  together by reading an April-May 1965 issue of 'Poetry Magazine': and
  the following lines from Charles Olson's 'Cole's Island' had especially
  centered the experience, 'touchstone' of DEUS EX, for me: Charles begins
  the poem with the statement 'I met Death –' And then: 'He didn't bother
  me, or say anything. Which is / not surprising, a person might not, in
  the circumstances; / or at most a nod or something. Or they would. But
  they wouldn't, / or you wouldn't think to either, / it was Death. And /
  He certainly was, the moment I saw him.'" –S.B. & THE ACT OF SEEING WITH
  ONE'S OWN EYES 1971, 32 min, 16mm, silent. "…Brakhage, entering, with
  his camera, one of the forbidden, terrific locations of our culture, the
  autopsy room. It is a place wherein, inversely, life is cherished, for
  it exists to affirm that no one of us may die without our knowing
  exactly why. All of us, in the person of the coroner, must see that, for
  ourselves, with our own eyes. It is a room full of appalling particular
  intimacies, the last ditch of individuation. Here our vague nightmare of
  mortality acquires the names and faces of others." –Hollis Frampton
  Total running time: ca. 105 minutes.

 VIDEOEX FESTIVAL / "ICI ET AILLEURS" BY JEAN-LUC GODARD
  As a first step of "For ever Godard!", a short survey inside the film
  practice of the Swiss-French director Jean-Luc Godard shown during the
  Videoex Festival, one of his most controversial films will be projected
  in the Cinema Z3. "Ici et ailleurs", produced in 1976 by using footage
  from "Jusqu'à la victoire" (a 1970 pro-Palestinian film made by Godard
  and Jean-Pierre Gorin), marks the beginning of Godard's transitional
  period, which found him experimenting with video and moving from
  political polemics to an examination of the way people perceive
  themselves and others.

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

 EARLY  MONTHLY SEGMENTS #51 = TRANSITIONS
  Five films on transition as a psychological and formal device. Michael
  Robinson's Chiquitita and the Soft Escape (2003) started as an attempt
  to ground nostalgia as "a purely mechanical process", but reveals
  instead how powerfully an image carries emotional weight – whether the
  impositions of family life or, remarkably, the simple camera tilt up a
  window frame. Stan Brakhage's In Between (1955), his first in colour and
  one of his few with music (by John Cage), uses the columns of San
  Francisco's Legion of Honor as an external portraiture of the great
  collage artist Jess Collins. Barbara Sternberg's Transitions (1982)
  confines the subject to the space of her bed while her inner mind,
  caught between waking and dreaming, sorts through visual and vocal
  superimpositions—the memories both trap her and lead her out into the
  imaginary beyond. Matthias Müller's Pensao Globo (1997) looks directly
  at the beyond as a dying man books a room in Lisbon to spend his final
  days wandering, his body and mind dissolving into an uncertain eternal
  rest. Finally, the stunning hot air balloon ride in Fern Silva's recent
  Passage Upon the Plume (2011) takes us out through the window and up
  into a abstracted voyage through the sky. Programme: Chiquitita and the
  Soft Escape, Michael Robinson, 2003, USA, 16mm, 10 min In Between, Stan
  Brakhage, USA, 1955, 16mm, 10 min Transitions, Barbara Sternberg, 1982,

 VIDEOEX FESTIVAL / CAROLEE SCHNEEMANN
  «I really wanted to see what "the fuck" is and locate that in terms of a
  lived sense of equity», Carolee Schneemann said about her 1967 film
  "Fuses", which took inspiration by Stan Brakhage's "Window Water Baby
  Moving" (1959) and portrayed the artist and her then-boyfriend James
  Tenney having sex as recorded by a 16 mm Bolex camera. Schneemann then
  altered the film by staining, burning, and directly drawing on the
  celluloid itself, mixing the concepts of painting and collage. The
  segments were edited together at varying speeds and superimposed with
  photographs of nature, which she juxtaposed against her and Tenney's
  bodies and sexual actions. "Fuses" and a selection of films by Carolee
  Schneemann will be shown during the Videoex Festival as a taste of her
  controversial investigation in the world of sex and intimacy.

 VIDEOEX FESTIVAL / "TROPICáLIA" BY MARCELO MACHADO
  "Tropicália" by Marcelo Machado is a vivid portrait of the Brasilian
  music avant-garde during the 60s. Through musicians and artists such as
  Os Mutantes, Tom Zé, Gal Costa, Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso, the
  movement which gives the title to the film has embodied the joyful
  symbol of opposition against tradition in the years of the authoritarian
  military dictatorship in Brasil.

  Round the Garden is literally a look right round a back garden, from a

  piece, scratched-on, with added dyes. Grove, the longest of the three,
  studies and contemplates a group of trees planted maybe sixty years ago
  in a disused quarry.' - MT, quoted in Subjects and Sequences: a Margaret

  his relationship to music, including OPENING (2007), an elliptical
  landscape film with a live soundtrack of indeterminate music; and Five

  and deliver a presentation that gives the audience insight into their
  original research on the personal, cultural, or historical source
  materials of the particular film being discussed. Each work chosen shall
  be rich in hybrid sources for a complex mixture of influences and
  inspirations. Curated by Bradley Eros. For this edition, Peggy Ahwesh
  and Keith Sanborn will explore the secret beatle messages and spiritual
  ambience which gave rise to their two-headed monster: THE DEADMAN.
  Bataille, Hegel, Lacan, Goya, de Sade, Danish specialty porn, Bimbonic
  initiatic rites, and the Dionysian festival of the goat will be included
  in this ill-guided tour of the Pathosformeln invoked in the making of
  the film. THE DEADMAN 1990, 37 min, 16mm A loose adaptation of Georges
  Bataille's text of the same name. The protagonist, Marie, leaves the
  deathbed of her lover to explore to the limit her shattered identity.
  Neither 'erotic' nor 'pornographic' quite captures the sense of the
  agonistic limits she shatters in recollecting herself in confrontation
  with death. Nor is it a matter, for the filmmakers, of style, but the
  embrace of something less amenable to direct description.

 VIDEOEX FESTIVAL / "FILM SOCIALISME" BY JEAN-LUC GODARD
  With its intertextual references "Film Socialisme" (2010) by Jean-Luc
  Godard is a philosophical dissertation about the history, past and
  future of the Western culture. Divided into three acts, the film moves
  from a cruise on board the ship Costa Concordia to a gas station on
  solid ground, and ends with the final movement, set in six legendary
  sites: Egypt, Palestine, Odessa, Hellas, Naples, and Barcelona. Based
  not on a real narration, it's a compendium of fragmented dialogues,
  pseudo-characters and images, that suggest a critical interpretation of
  the today Europe. The projection is part of "For ever Godard!", a
  screening dedicated to the filmmaker inside the Videoex Festival.

 SECESSION FROM THE BROADCAST: THE INTERNET AND THE CRISIS OF SOCIAL
 CONTROL
  "There exists today an alternative media environment that surpasses the
  wildest utopian dreams of twentieth-century media activism," writes Gene
  Youngblood. "It holds the possibility of radical re-socialization on a
  global scale and is a mortal threat to social control as we know it.
  This lecture is about what is at stake in the epic struggle for control
  of the Internet, and what we must do to release its revolutionary
  potential."

 UNBOUND
  ABIGAIL CHILD'S 'UNBOUND' & 'A SHAPE OF ERROR' Anthology is pleased to
  present the NYC premieres of both Abigail Child's new feature film A
  SHAPE OF ERROR, and an expanded, 'exploded' version of the same
  material, entitled UNBOUND. "In Rome for a year at the American Academy,
  I created imaginary home movies of scenes from the life of Mary and
  Percy Shelley. I was attracted to these authors – their life of poetry,
  politics, and sexual invention – and inspired by my previous
  fictionalizing of home movies in COVERT ACTION and THE FUTURE IS BEHIND
  YOU. I worked with non-actors, the seasons, and the extraordinary
  architecture and landscapes of Italy where the Shelleys were in exile
  for six of their eight years together. The result was a feature film, A
  SHAPE OF ERROR, gorgeous, emotional, and harnessed to the narrative. I
  wanted to go further and abetted by digital technology, I have
  'exploded' the film. The result is UNBOUND, digressive, looped,
  unpredictable, symphonic, spontaneous, messy – like life and memory."
  –A.C. "So exuberant, so visually gorgeous…ahead of the curve…mixing
  narrative, avant-garde and expanded cinema." –Tina Wasserman "[A]t once
  a mischievous scuttling of BBC costume drama and the creative
  anachronism of home movies before the invention of film. The results are
  of a kind that only Child could achieve: a playful mastery of form, and
  never-wavering attention to the past's connection with the present."
  –Jim Supanick UNBOUND 2012, 75 min, digital video. Music by Zeena
  Parkins. The 'exploded' version of A SHAPE OF ERROR.

7:30 PM, CineCycle, 129 Spadina Avenue (down the lane) 

 INTERTIDAL: A FILM PERFORMANCE BY ALEX MACKENZIE IN PERSON!
  Pleasure Dome and LIFT are pleased to present Alex MacKenzie's most
  recent expanded cinema performance works featuring 16mm analytic
  projectors with hand processed imagery. The scope and materiality of
  both emulsion and environment are explored using elements as wide
  ranging as photograms, alternative film chemistry and live manipulation.
  Intertidal (55 min., 2012) is inspired both by Ed Ricketts, the American
  marine biologist and philosopher known for his pioneering study of
  intertidal ecology, and the mesmerizing science films of Jean Painlevé.
  The work presents a submersive exploration of the tidal zones and marine
  life off the shores of B.C. Using camera and non-camera approaches,
  Intertidal speaks to the fragility of both the film medium and the
  marine environment explored. Travelling as far west as Nootka Sound on
  Vancouver Island and north to the tip of Naikoon on Haida Gwaii, this
  route purposefully emulates that which Ricketts and his close friend
  author John Steinbeck intended to revisit prior to Ricketts' untimely
  death in 1948. At once personal, political, visual and ecological, the
  work gives equal weight to representation and abstraction. Opening the
  programme, Logbook (25 min., 2011) utilizes black and white film
  emulsions handmade and painted onto raw celluloid in rendering traces of
  past life and moments passed on a remote island mountain in the Pacific
  Northwest. Filmed with a 1923 Cine-Kodak Model A—the first hand-cranked
  16mm camera produced by Kodak—frames are slowed, frozen, reversed and
  reprised in a study and interplay of surface and subject, where fleeting
  images crackle, tear and fold in on themselves to invoke the very silver
  nitrate of which they are made. Alex MacKenzie is an experimental film
  artist working primarily with analogue film equipment and hand processed
  imagery. He creates works of expanded cinema, light projection
  installation and projector performance. MacKenzie's work has screened
  nationally and internationally since 1998. He was the Founder and
  Curator of the Edison Electric Gallery of Moving Images from 1995 to
  1997 and the Blinding Light!! Cinema from 1998 to 2003. Alex co-edited
  Damp: Contemporary Vancouver Media Art (2008) and interviewed David
  Rimmer for Loop, Print, Fade + Flicker: David Rimmer's Moving Images
  (2009).

 NOMADIC ARCHIVE: ABRAHAM RAVETT PRESENTS TWO WORKS BY TOM JOSLIN
  Hampshire college alumna and EPFC staffer Eve LaFountain and her
  professor Abraham Ravett will present two of Tom Joslin's works:
  Blackstar: Autobiography of a Close Friend from 1976, and the
  posthumously assembled work The Architecture of Mountains (2010). Ravett
  writes the following about the project: "Before he left for LA in 1981
  to pursue a career in Hollywood, documentary filmmaker Tom Joslin
  completed an innovative and, to this day, historically significant film
  called Blackstar: Autobiography of a Close Friend (1976, 85 minutes,
  color, sound, 16mm). It was one of the first autobiographical, diary
  format films that addressed the issue of gay identity and coming out to
  one's family. It's a beautifully made film, formally inventive, and
  still resonates on many fronts." When Tom passed away from AIDS, he left
  all his video tapes from another autobiographical project he had been
  shooting in LA to a former student named Peter Friedman who in turn,
  found the resources to construct the much acclaimed film, Silverlake
  Life: the View from Here. Prior to leaving Hampshire College in 1980,
  Tom was working on another film inspired by Jose Argüelles book, The
  Transformative Vision: Reflections on the Nature and History of Human
  Expression. Shot in sync and MOS on 16mm, the footage reflects Tom's
  interest in perception, human consciousness, and signaled his evolving
  interest in fusing non-fiction, experimental and dramatic genres. All
  the original materials for this unfinished film were stored at the LA
  home of Ken Levin another former Hampshire College student who, along
  with several other students, worked with Tom on this project, which he
  called The Architecture of Mountains (62 minutes). Ravett asked Ken
  Levin if we could use the footage as part of a class project. For the
  last two years, a small group of students and Ravett have shaped the
  material into a 62 minute film that is based on Tom's production notes,
  conversations with Tom's former students about the Architecture of
  Mountains project, and the Argüelles text. The primary editor is Ben
  Balcom. The version which would be screened tonight "is an attempt to
  construct what Tom may have wanted to do with this material as well as
  our own engagement and fascination with this footage." Following the
  sceerning, Ravett will discuss the consequences of creating such a
  "nomadic archive," as he calls this project. (text from UnionDocs)
