  Pedro Almódovar, Labyrinth of Passion, 35mm on DVD, color, 1982. Curated
  by TIffany Malakooti. Labyrinth of Passion follows scantily disguised
  but heavily camped-up members of the Iranian royal family in their
  famous period of limbo following the revolution of 1979 as they are
  thrust by Pedro Almódovar into extravagant plot lines that weave
  hilariously between historical accuracy and ribald fantasy. "Toraya,"
  the disgruntled ex-empress is desperate to fertilize herself with royal
  seed via the young Crown Prince "Riza." Riza is busy attempting to cure
  himself of his homosexuality after falling in love with a nymphomaniac
  pop star named Sexilia, but his former lover Sadec (played by a young
  and nubile Antonio Banderas) is secretly a pro-Khomeini terrorist
  belonging to a group attempting to kidnap him. Plus, plastic surgery,
  doctors, laxatives, and other culturally appropriate themes. RSVP for

Baltimore: Sight Unseen
9:00pm, The WindUp Space, 12 W. North Ave.

  For its first anniversary, Sight Unseen presents Perpetual Memory, a
  group program of mesmerizing, seminal masterpieces on celluloid. These
  experimental feats of cinema continue to achieve an affective, recurring
  response from contemporary viewers. Via visceral and intellectual
  variations upon classical composition, mass media, and personal peril,
  these award-winning works established alternative modes of filmmaking
  that enhanced earlier aesthetic traditions and are still emulated by
  younger generations of moving image practitioners. Enmeshed in
  exponential shifts to the status quo, these four breakthrough films
  reveal seductive motions towards sublime beauty as well as psychological
  shock. Featuring films by Bruce Conner, Maya Deren, Chris Marker, &
  Norman McLaren. For more information, visit FREE ADMISSION.

Chicago, IL: White Light Cinema
8pm, The Nightingale, 1084 N. Milwaukee

  White Light Cinema and The Nightingale Present, Michael Klier's DER
  RIESE [THE GIANT] -- Encore Screening! - A Prescient 1983 German Film
  Essay on Surveillance - Saturday, July 27 – 8:00pm, At the
  Nightingale (1084 N. Milwaukee Ave.) - - Der Riese [The Giant] - Michael
  Klier (1983, 82 min, Video on DVD, West Germany) - "Comprised entirely
  of material generated by surveillance cameras, Der Riese is a rhapsodic
  but ominous work depicting the world with a cold mechanical spirit. That
  nothing can escape the chill stare of surveillance is only the starting
  point of Klier's tape. People come and go in public places-parks,
  department stores, banks, airports-like lifeless ciphers, unaware of the
  authoritarian stare of the camera. The flattened field of vision,
  black-and-white imagery, and sterile quality of the technology make the
  inhabitants of Der Riese emptied shadows. They are the signs of life;
  truly signs, not the flesh rendered in two dimensions. Lyrically
  constructed sequences unfold to the strains of Mahler and Wagner, adding
  an almost heroic mood to much of this dark work. But this is where Der
  Riese excels-footage seemingly impervious to meaning here acquires the
  energy of high drama. Even the unblinking eye of the surveillance camera
  can be foiled." (Steve Seid, Pacific Film Archive)

Los Angeles, California: Filmforum
7:30pm, Spielberg Theatre at the Egyptian, 6712 Hollywood Blvd.

  Filmmaker Simon Tarr in person! Simon Tarr comes from South Carolina
  with films and live cinema performance! Many Los Angeles premieres! Not
  well known yet on the West Coast, Simon Tarr utilizes a full array of
  methods to create his expressive media work. Sometimes he grabs video
  glitches and renders them in one luxurious colorful whole; other times
  he films fleeting moments in centers of world finance. He manipulates
  found footage in completed works and live "remixes" that change the
  meaning of the original work. It's a shame that we haven't hosted his
  work in Los Angeles previously, and we're delighted to rectify the
  situation. Be sure to come out and see the possibilities! Tickets: $10
  general, $6 students/seniors; free for Filmforum members. Available by
  credit card in advance from Brown Paper Tickets at or at the door. Screening
  (subject to change):  FUD (2006, digital, color, sound, 4 min),
  Lowcountry (2012, digital, color, sound, 7 mins), TIA MAK (2007, live
  performance, color, sound, 15 min), Giri Chit (2009, digital, color,
  sound, 14 min), Interruptus (2011, digital, color, sound, 4 min), Drang
  8th Ave (2012, digital, color, sound, 1 min), Mother of the World (2011,

New York, New York: Dirty Looks NYC
9PM, Don Pedro (Bathsalts), 90 Manhattan Avenue 

  16mm on video, 1982 Curated by Bradford Nordeen. Predating Paris Is
  Burning by 8 years, T.V. Transvestite offers a rare glimpse into the
  ball scene in Harlem of the 1980s. Featuring drag legends Pepper
  LaBeija, Doran Corey and Sugar, the film was initially released to
  incredible acclaim by filmmakers like Federico Fellini and Michelangelo
  Antonioni. The film's distribution was truncated, however, due to
  musical licensing issues, and was considered lost for 30 years.

New York, New York: Anthology Film Archives
7:30 pm, 32 2nd Avenue

  Jem Cohen has long-since established himself as one of the most gifted
  and uncompromising of independent American filmmakers, creating a body
  of work over the past 30 years that encompasses shorts and features;
  Super-8, 16mm, and digital works; and documentaries, music videos, and
  narrative films. Demonstrating both a preoccupation with music (and
  other art forms), and a deep commitment to critiquing the excesses of
  American society, he has worked at the intersection of culture and
  politics throughout his career. Following on the release of his most
  recent feature, MUSEUM HOURS, set to open in NYC in June, we present two
  programs focused on his short films – one highlighting some of his
  earliest works, the other showcasing more recent but still
  rarely-screened pieces. Though his features have garnered a great deal
  of (well-deserved) attention, these short works reveal another, equally
  important dimension of his cinema. PROGRAM 1: SOME EARLY WORK BURIED IN
  LIGHT 1994, 60 min, Super-8mm-to-digital video Music: Tom Cora, Ben
  Katchor, Vic Chesnutt, Stephen Vitiello, Gabriel Cohen, and Knox
  Chandler. A personal exploration of Central and Eastern Europe in a time
  of massive change, the film consists of dispatches from Berlin, Prague,
  Krakow, Budapest, and Dresden. Visual shortwave, jumbled dictionaries,
  and the ghosts of Hitler, Stalin, and Disney. "When I traveled to
  Central and Eastern Europe in '92 and '93, the euphoria surrounding the
  dramatic changes of '89 had already faded. I felt that I had come just
  in time to see Old Europe being carted off to the dustbin, renovated,
  and welcomed into the international shopping mall network. With this
  project, I set out to explore this fleeting juncture, and to capture
  something of a world that seemed about to disappear. As a descendent of
  Eastern European immigrants, my travels took on an added individual
  significance." –J.C. JUST HOLD STILL 1989, 32 min, Super-8mm-to-digital
  video This compilation was intended to work like a visual LP ('long
  playing record') and was released with the following manifesto: "Where
  documentary collides. Music video as independent film. Birds as
  punctuation". Side A was called "The Heart is Attached" and consisted of
  the following shorts: 4:44 (FROM HER HOUSE HOME) (1989, 3.5 min) A
  certain kind of night collected: trees, houses, footsteps, and narrative
  skimmed. In support of unsolved mysteries. NEVER CHANGE (1988, 4.5 min)
  Filmed here and there, but mostly coming down one California mountain in
  a quiet storm of film grain and fog. The text is a poem read by Blake
  Nelson. LOVE TELLER (1989, 2.5 min. Made with Ben Katchor.) A 42nd St.
  arcade machine and the science of the human heart. LIGHT YEARS (1989,
  4.5 min) Personal history, passing friends, and why does memory look so
  much like Super 8? Side B was called "City Song" and contained the
  following: CITYFILMS COLLECT (1989, 2.5 min, silent, b&w) Brief
  photoplays from unrehearsed New York, including rare documentation of
  the Motorcycle Christ. GLUE MAN (1989, 5 min) A collaboration with the
  band, Fugazi, built around some troubling footage that I'd gathered from
  Brooklyn windows, and some music the band was developing concurrently.
  Video and song were intertwined, a shared deconstruction. Our intention
  was to challenge the music video form on several fronts: creating a
  piece that foregrounded documentary footage rather than pop conventions,
  finding ways to meld images and music outside of the commercial stream
  dictated by MTV and the record industry. In short, thinking about the
  problem of when to avert one's eyes, while making a 'music video' with
  nothing to sell. TALK ABOUT THE PASSION (1988, 3.5 min) In collaboration
  with the band, R.E.M., my first (non) music video, with some images
  borrowed from THIS IS A HISTORY OF NEW YORK. Concerns homelessness, but
  it's also simply about counting and accountability. Total running time:
  ca. 95 min.

Toronto, Ontario, Canada: Early Monthly Segments
8:00 PM, Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen Street West

  Perceptual Intensities // Guest programmed by Michael Zryd Three films
  rooted in real and resonant spaces that magnify the transformative
  process of aesthetic contact between eye/ear/body and the matter/wave
  forms of the world.A student film from David Bienstock's masters studies
  at New York University, Brummer's takes its young couple through a
  whirlwind of Godard, Technicolor, and breakfast. Peggy's Blue Skylight
  is a loose and lovely romp through Joyce Wieland and Michael Snow's loft
  in New York, shot originally on 8mm and transferred to 16mm colour stock
  in 1985. The title comes from a jazz piece by Charles Mingus and Paul
  Bley performs the soundtrack. The fifth film in Hollis Frampton's 7-part
  Hapax Legomena, Ordinary Matter was also the last film of the series to
  be completed, partly due to Frampton's ambitious original plan to have
  the sound track consist of verbal descriptions by three women and three
  men of Marcel Duchamp's Given: 1. The Waterfall, 2. The Illuminating
  Gas. The current soundtrack is a non-sync recording of Frampton reading
  what he called the "Wade-Giles syllabary of the Chinese language," an
  attempt to translate ideograms (idea-pictures) to phonemes (units of
  sound). Frampton's description of the film gets us started: "A vision of
  a journey, during which the eye of the mind drives headlong through
  Salisbury Cloister (a monument to enclosure), Brooklyn Bridge (a
  monument to connection), Stonehenge (a monument to the intercourse
  between consciousness and LIGHT)… visiting along the way diverse
  meadows, barns, waters where I now live; and ending in the remembered
  cornfields of my childhood." Like Duchamp's posthumous installation,
  Ordinary Matter is less about what we see (or think we see) than the
  work of perception and consciousness as it swings between matter and
  energy. As Frampton says in A Lecture: "This is where we came in."
  Programme: Brummer's, David Bienstock, 1967, USA, 16mm, 10 min Peggy's

TUESDAY, JULY 30, 2013

Brooklyn, NY: Light Industry
7:30pm, 155 Freeman Street

  Sambizanga, Sarah Maldoror, 16mm, 1972, 102 mins - "Sarah
  Maldoror's Sambizanga is a film about acting. In fact, the film was seen
  to be so effective at mobilizing action that the Portuguese colonial
  authorities banned it from being screened in their then province of
  Angola. It was first seen publicly in Angola only after the country won
  its independence in 1974. Based on a novel by Luandino Vieira, a
  political prisoner of the Portuguese from 1961 to 1974, Sambizanga is a
  fictionalized chronicle of the arrest and fatal imprisonment of a man
  whose underground activities were an impenetrable secret to all around

New York, New York: Anthology Film Archives
7:30 pm, 32 2nd Avenue

  16mm-to-digital video) Moving towards an unknown destination, a group of
  anonymous passengers float through an unidentified landscape,
  accompanied by a guitar piece from Andy Moor of the Ex. The film can be
  seen as a curious parable made in a time of national malaise. It's
  subheading refers to the Book of Daniel, Chapter 11, verse 40: "And at
  the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the
  king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with
  chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter
  into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over." REAL BIRDS (2012,
  11 min, digital video) A walk in Gowanus shortly before the 10th
  anniversary of 9/11. ONE BRIGHT DAY (2009, 17 min, digital video) While
  out shooting for a different project, I encountered two sleeping men on
  a Manhattan street. A short time later, I was standing in front of
  Pennsylvania Train Station with the camera on a tripod when one of the
  men suddenly reappeared. He stepped in front of my camera and began to
  speak, about his path in the U.S. military, from Panama to Afghanistan
  to Iraq, about his life. I decided to limit the piece to what I shot in
  that area in those few hours, with one key addition: the text from a
  classic children's rhyme. CROSSING PATHS WITH LUCE VIGO (2010, 12 min,
  16mm-to-digital video) A portrait of Luce Vigo, film critic, educator,
  and the daughter of seminal filmmaker, Jean Vigo. Filmed in Pamplona,
  Spain. Luce reflects on her life and her father's legacy. OPUS LUMINIS
  ET HOMINIS (2010, 14 min, 16mm-to-digital video) Portrait of Pamplona,
  in the North of Spain. This small city is both the home of the fine
  Punto de Vista film festival and, less promisingly, one of the centers
  of the right wing, ultra-Catholic Opus Dei (Works of God). Hence my
  title, which translates to "Works of Light and Man". Total running time:
  ca. 70 min.

  EARLY FALL [1976, S8mm, 18fps, color, sound, 33 min.] "Notes of an
  early fall refers to the season in which he returns to his family home
  with his new camera to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, as well as to the
  aesthetic fall from the grace of pure vision into the worldly cacophony
  of synchronous sound (in a hyperbole of Brakhage's polemics) and the
  fall from a prestigious position in what was at the time the strongest
  academic program in avant-garde filmmaking in America..." Taking

  min.] "Hard-edged poetry. How else could one characterize the films
  of Saul Levine, which cut as they do between jackhammers and B.B. King
  singing the blues? Levine is Boston's own outsider. In the culture of
  public television and whiz bang computer-generated images, Levine sticks
  to his expressionist, tactile guns as the king of Super 8. Perhaps
  better known nationally than in his adopted home city, Saul Levine has
  made a reputation for himself as a prime maker and promoter of the
  American avant-garde film..." - Marjorie Keller, VISIONS MAGAZINE

  GREAT WALL OF CHINA BLUE [1974 - 1984, S8mm, 18fps, sound, 5 min.]
  "A portrait of disc jockey Mai Cramer, filmmaker Dan Barnett, and
  Levine himself. The film cuts between Cramer talking, Barnett working
  and touring China and Levine engaged in the routines of his life.
  Incorporated into the portrait are shots of an astronaut floating in
  space, clouds passing and Chinese women performing their daily exercise.
  As vast space and clouds float by, the film mixes daily routines,
  foreign locales and the expanse of the universe in a work of cinematic
  music and dance." - Marjorie Keller, program note, Collective for

  storytelling. - Projection and Concept: Mark Street, Pencilina: Bradford

Brooklyn, New York: MONO NO AWARE
7 pm , Center For Performance Research, 361 Manhattan Avenue 

  Please join Mono No Aware on Wednesday JULY 31st for an intimate
  screening performance with Andrew Lampert, Fern Silva, and David Beard.
  PROGRAM BELOW : "DOUBLE TROUBLE", 2013 Super 8mm Andrew Lampert & Fern
  Silva Double Trouble is an expanded cinema projector performance duo of
  filmmakers Andrew Lampert and Fern Silva. Each reiteration of this piece
  unveils a new double projection experience focused on something they
  came up with at the very last minute. Pasta Fazul! Mangia Cine!!
  David Beard The 'correspondences series' films were made in
  collaboration with photographer Christy Shigekawa. --- Andrew Lampert -
  Working primarily in film, video, and performance, Andrew Lampert
  pursues the alchemy between artist, art, and audience in a public space,
  especially that of cinema. A trained film archivist, Lampert combines a
  Duchampian attention to the gap between an artwork's private intent and
  public reception with an appreciation for the contingency of film as a
  medium, bringing unscripted and chance elements into cinema's veneer of
  control. Reveling in cinema as a performative environment, Lampert
  reclaims this space from a mass media culture to emphasize its potential
  for immediacy and accident. Fern Silva - Is a former instructor for MONO
  NO AWARE's workshop series and a alumni of MONO NO AWARE II. He has
  created a body of film, video, and projection work that has been
  screened and performed at various festivals, galleries, museums and
  cinematheques including the Toronto, Berlin, Locarno, Rotterdam, New
  York, Edinburgh, Images, Oberhausen, and Ann Arbor Film Festivals,
  Anthology Film Archive, Wexner Center for the Arts, San Francisco
  Cinematheque, MALI, BAM, ICA/Boston, and the Greater New York exhibition
  at MOMA P.S.1. His work emerges out of travel and its various effects on
  culture. As a personal artist with an interest in working against
  conventional modes of documentary and narrative film-making, his work
  often gravitates toward ideas surrounding mysticism and the deceptive
  capabilities of memory. He was listed as one of the Top 25 Filmmakers
  for the 21st Century in Film Comment Magazine's Avant-Garde Filmmakers
  Poll, is the recipient of the Gus Van Sant Award from the 49th Ann Arbor
  Film Festival and was nominated for Best International Short Film at the
  2012 Edinburgh International Film Festival. He received a BFA from
  Massachusetts College of Art, MFA from Bard College and is currently
  based in Brooklyn, NY and Chicago, IL where he teaches filmmaking at the
  University of Illinois-Chicago. David Beard - " The greatest influence
  on my visual works is 17 years of involvement in abstract and
  experimental music, translating lessons learned in texture, rhythm, flow
  and improvisation into visual language. I've performed and recorded with
  the bands Kanovanik, the Real Perfections, and Acoustical Cave Band, and
  collaborated with artists and musicians including Daniel Carter, Hanayo,
  Firehorse the DJ, and Vox Populi (Paris). I see the camera first as a
  tool to sharpen one's eye for the world, and secondly as a means of
  sharing that perspective with others. My experimental films reflect
  observation during 'free and easy wandering' and spontaneous decision
  than more than meticulous planning. I view 'art objects' as the residue
  of art in living. Other influences include over a decade of experience
  working in the field of chemistry, daily life in NYC, and the regular
  practice of internal martial arts. I am a 6th generation Men Ren in the
  lineages of Northern Wu Taijiquan and Cheng Style Baguazhang under Frank
  Allen (Wutang PCA). In addition to music and motion picture films, I am
  also active in video, computer art and still photography. "

Brooklyn, NY: UnionDocs
7:30pm, 355 Union Ave.

  Filmmaker Robert Todd in attendance for a discussion along with curator
  Rachael Rakes. Synthhumpers + guests to follow. info/tix: - 7:30pm screening, 9:30pm live performance. Suggested
  donation $12 or concert only $9. - Drawing from the resultant archive of
  near-constant filming, Robert Todd assembles his own footage into
  temporal moods which then fracture and multiply through careful editing.
  Todd's extensive body of work comprises a library of emotions and
  observations and reveals a life dedicated to careful looking. Marking
  the pinnacle of summer, this program features a survey of Todd's
  hot-weather films, capturing, interchangeably, the light, oppression,
  curiosity, and clarity of the East Coast summer. - Organized–and
  lemonade provided by– Rachael Rakes, full line-up on the site -
  Following the screening, we will pull up the chairs and welcome sonic
  explorers Synthhumpers. This kitchen table-top sound collaboration
  between Jim Supanick and Josh Solondz features murky improvisations
  which are anchored in trust and transcendental pursuit. For their last
  performance, they repurposed an electric football game for their novel
  interpretation of Alvin Lucier's The Queen of the South at the 2013 Ann
  Arbor Film Festival\; this time they will save Electronic Dance Music
  from itself, summoning the spirits of Kiki Gyan and Sugarfoot Bonner
  through their rhythmmachine. No indie-rocker beard-scratchin' permitted-
  this night is strictly to groove with the two jayesses and their special
  secret guests.
