 SIGHT UNSEEN PRESENTS SIGHTS & SOUNDS FROM ENOCH PRATT
  Sight Unseen presents a selection of experimental standouts from the
  Sights & Sounds Department at the Enoch Pratt Free Library. The shorts
  program promises audiovisual displays of unbridled cinepoems,
  contrast-filled fantasies, televised filmloops, violent diptychs,
  laboratory graphics, plein air dreamscapes, paranoid studies and
  multiplied microcosms. The rapid-fire as well as resonant sequences
  highlight the rich and radical extent of this Baltimore-based analog
  archive both chronologically and content-wise. A special thanks goes to
  Tom Warner at Sights & Sounds for setting this screening at Enoch Pratt.

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

 NEW WORKS SALON
  $5 / Ross Lipman will screen two recent works: Curva Peligrosa, part of
  his cycle of works on the nature of organic change The Perfect Heart of
  Flux, examines La Reparosa, a perilously stunning stretch of road
  between Tijuana and Mexacali. Though measures have been taken to
  increase safety it remains a major hazard, as attested to by the ruins
  of vehicles that lay beneath it. Dr. Bish Remedies, from Lipman's
  "personal ethnography" series, is an informal visit with legendary
  filmmaker Bruce Baillie at his home on Camano Island in Washington
  State. Michele Jaquis, who will be screening three short videos, is a
  socially engaged artist and educator based in Los Angeles, where she is
  founding Director of Interdisciplinary Studies at Otis College of Art
  and Design. Her work has been presented at conferences, film and video
  festivals, galleries, museums, and alternative spaces across the U.S.
  and in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Combining strategies of
  documentary research, social practice and performance art, Michele's
  recent videos explore the complexities of language, identity and
  communication. And visiting from the Bay Area a special expanded cinema
  performance by Beige, the collaborative project of Vanessa O'Neill and
  Kent Long. "Working with 16mm projection and live sound, we endeavor to
  keep present our physical selves, as we slowly succumb to the screen's
  dissociative veil."

San Francisco, California: Other Cinema
http://www.othercinema.com/
8:30, 992 Valencia St.

 FORSTER’S VINYL RESURGENCE + MUYBRIDGE + 16MM SOUNDIES +  
  A survey—and celebration!—of Analog Media culture: Ben Wood
  re-capitulates Frisco's fabled father of the moving image, Rick
  Prelinger annotates Trip Down Market Street in a 60 Minutes clip, and
  Will Nold documents the relentlessly cruel theatrical switch to DCP.
  ALSO: Russ Forster—with one hand on the turntable and the other on the
  overhead projector, and a third(?) on electric guitar—complements that
  cinema timeline with his own demented performance on the value of vinyl,
  leading to other seminal audio-art-ifacts: Tiny Tim on 8-track tapes, an
  Optigan promo, the SF Tape Music Center, Moog and modular synth clips,
  Harry Partch, even the Trololoman! Free beer (and typewriters!!) launch
  Russ' latest 8-Track Mind issue, while fantastic 16mm Soundies (Spike
  Jones, Liberace) toast that lost format. media archeology

Cambridge, Massachusetts: Harvard Film Archive
http://hcl.harvard.edu/hfa
7PM, Harvard Film Archive, 24 Quincy Street

 ONE NIGHT, STANDISH LAWDER
  $12 Special Event Tickets Standish Lawder in Person A truly
  multi-dimensional artist, the filmmaker, photographer, inventor,
  educator and film historian Standish Lawder (b. 1936) is best known
  today for his delightfully intelligent films that playfully straddle the
  categories of structuralist cinema and conceptual art. Lawder's long
  career in cinema began first as a student of art history at Yale where
  his PhD dissertation gave way to a major book on cubist cinema and a
  position teaching film history and influencing a generation of film
  scholars. Lawder's year as the Henry R. Luce Visiting Professor of Film
  at Harvard – the university's first faculty position in cinema studies –
  earns him a special place in the history of the Harvard Film Archive and
  the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, now in the midst of its 50th
  anniversary celebration. Displaying a similar offbeat humor and rigorous
  design as the work of Owen Land and Morgan Fisher, Lawder's own films
  dramatically expand and challenge the modernist montage principles of
  the early cinematic avant garde so close to him, especially the work of
  his father-in-law, Hans Richter. In major works such as Necrology and
  the all too little known Corridor (a fascinating companion piece to
  Ernie Gehr's Serene Velocity of the same year), Lawder creatively bends
  the perceptual dimensions of cinema into dizzying new directions,
  creating spellbinding, mysterious and quite literally visionary films.
  The Harvard Film Archive is pleased to welcome Standish Lawder back to
  Harvard for a focused retrospective and enlightened discussion.

9/24
Brooklyn, NY: Light Industry
http://www.lightindustry.org/
7:30pm, 155 Freeman Street

 AN EVENING WITH GREY ROOM
  The reception of Guy Debord's work has long positioned him foremost as a
  theorist and political writer, and only secondarily as a filmmaker, but
  in a strategic departure, the current issue of Grey Room is devoted to a
  re-examination of Debord's cinematic output. To mark the arrival of this
  publication, the first book-length collection of its kind, Light
  Industry presents a screening of a newly-produced (and completely
  unofficial) English-language version of Debord's film Society of the
  Spectacle (1973), with a voiceover by Paul Chan. - Debord directed seven
  productions between the 1950s and 1990s, ranging from the Lettrist-era
  Howls for Sade (1952) to the late television documentary Guy Debord, His
  Art and His Times (1995)\; his On the Passage of a Few Persons Through a
  Rather Brief Unity of Time (1959) and Critique of Separation (1961) are
  the only films made by a member of the Situationist International during
  the group's existence. In "Guy Debord, Filmmaker," the introduction to
  Grey Room's special issue, Jason E. Smith notes that filmmaking was "the
  most consistent activity Debord undertook over the course of his life,"
  and that, furthermore, cinema became one of the key—if frequently
  overlooked—theoretical concerns of the SI. - "As a writer, Debord,
  with the exception of La société du spectacle, has no
  oeuvre," Smith writes. "As a filmmaker, however, he has an oeuvre. The
  films, consequently, should be placed at the center of his work. They
  are not illustrations of his theoretical writings\; they are the putting
  into sensible or material form his otherwise abstract theoretical
  formulations. An argument can even be made—at some risk and
  requiring much justification—that nothing of value in Debord's
  theoretical writings does not appear or rather reappear in his films:
  they are a form of filtration, selection, and expansion." - The
  historical lack of availability of Debord's films has contributed to
  this paucity of critical attention. Debord himself pulled them from
  distribution in 1984, following the murder of his producer and friend
  Gérard Lebovici, and for years they circulated only as
  nth-generation VHS bootlegs. More recently, Gaumont issued a DVD box set
  in 2005, and in 2009 Lincoln Center hosted the first retrospective of
  Debord's films with English-subtitled prints. - Though these
  contemporary releases have enabled an unprecedented visibility for the
  the work, subtitling presents certain aesthetic problems. Most of his
  films are structured around numerous modes of narration: Society of the
  Spectacle, for instance, includes voice-over, intertitles, and
  French-subtitled clips appropriated from reduction prints of Hollywood
  movies and other sources. English subtitling flattens this complexity,
  distracting the viewer and overly simplifying Debord's correspondences
  between word and image. This particular issue has been addressed by
  filmmakers such as Harun Farocki, Chris Marker, Alain Resnais, and
  Straub-Huillet by offering multiple iterations of the same essay film,
  narrated in different languages. Inspired by these artists, we look back
  to Debord's role as a filmmaker through an experiment in translation. -
  Society of the Spectacle, Guy Debord, digital projection, 87 mins -
  Followed by a discussion with Alexander R. Galloway, Jason E. Smith,
  McKenzie Wark, and Soyoung Yoon. - Tickets - Pay-what-you-wish ($7
  suggested donation), available at door. - Please note: seating is
  limited. First-come, first-served. Box office opens at 7pm.

 FICTION-NON PRESENTS: LYNNE SACHS' YOUR DAY IS MY NIGHT
  Wednesday, September 25th-Thursday, September 26th, 7:00pm, Fiction-Non:
  Lynne Sachs' Your Day is My Night - (A documentary series exploring
  'hybrid films' that cross the boundaries between fiction and non-fiction
  traditions.) - Curated by Beyza Boyacioglu - Your Day is My Night, Lynne
  Sachs, 2013, 65 min. - This provocative hybrid documentary begins with
  the stories of a Chinatown "shift-bed" apartment, as told
  through dreams, movement and song. The bed transforms into a stage,
  revealing the collective history of the Chinese in the United States
  through conversations, autobiographical monologues, and theatrical
  improvisations. Shot on 16mm, Super 8 and HD video in the kitchens,
  bedrooms, wedding halls, and mahjong parlors of Chinatown, Your Day is
  My Night addresses issues of home and urban life. With each
  "performance" of their present, the characters illuminate the joys and
  tragedies of their past, as well as the challenges of contemporary life
  in New York. - Both evening's screenings will begin with a short live
  performance created for Beyza Boyacioglu's "Fiction-Non" series.

 DIRECTORS LOUNGE SCREENING: ANJA DORNIEDEN & JUAN DAVID GONZALEZ MONROY 
  Anja Dornieden and Juan David Gonzalez Monroy have dedicated themselves
  to avant-garde film and work together for several years, strictly with
  16mm and Super-8. At the same time they often address society-related
  questions in their films, with phenomenas ranging from the relation
  between hypnosis and psychoanalysis, from the nostalgia about
  East-German puppet houses, to spatial imaginations connected the term
  private sphere. As members of the Labor Berlin, they have created their
  own facilities to develop film, but also produce 35mm copies of some of
  their films. Working with film for them also means to extend the
  possibilities of single film projection towards a layering of
  projections, which becomes a performance by itself, in former days also
  called Expanded Cinema. °**° °**° Anja Dornieden and Juan David Gonzalez
  Monroy will be present for Q&A. Curated by Klaus W. Eisenlohr °**°

 TOMOMI ADACHI AND TAKAHIKO IIMURA: FILMS AND PERFORMANCES
  In a rare joint appearance, filmmaking luminary Takahiko Iimura and
  Tokyo-based sound artist Tomomi Adachi present an evening of films and
  performances. Since the early 1960s, Iimura has been renowned for his
  groundbreaking films and videos, ranging from surreal underground
  narratives to elegant explorations of time and perception, many produced
  with performance artists and avant-garde composers. Adachi has garnered
  similar acclaim for his work with voice, electronics, and self-made
  instruments. The two will present four of Iimura's early films, a
  selection of Adachi's works, including the Chicago premiere of his
  ten-voice Song for Everyone, and a new collaboration for film, voice,
  and electronics. Co-presented with the experimental music series Lampo
  with support from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Sound
  Department. 1962–2013, Japan/USA, multiple formats, ca 90 min +

 LA AIR: EVE FOWLER & MARIAH GARNETT
  The Girls! The Boys! The Girls! Come sneak a peak, in a voyeuristic
  evening of objectifying surfers. Excerpts from Eve Fowler & Mariah
  Garnett's new movie, Life Is Torture will be screened along side some of
  the films which inspired it—movies about, and sometimes by, surfers from
  the 1970's. Eve Fowler lives and works in Los Angeles. A graduate of
  Temple University and Yale University, she is co-founder of Artist
  Curated Projects in Los Angeles. She has had a solo shows at Horton
  Gallery, New York; Thomas Solomon Gallery, Los Angeles; and Julie Saul
  Gallery, New York. Mariah Garnett is an experimental filmmaker and
  artist whose work seeks to occupy a space between convention and
  experimentation—or, rather, to experiment with convention. The
  boundaries of adaptation, documentary and fiction are continually being
  drawn and re-drawn in her work. Her work has been screened at the Venice
  Biennial, Rencontres Internationales, and Outfest, and included in a two
  person show at ltd los angeles as well as a solo show at Human Resources
  Gallery. LA AIR is a new artist-in-residence program that invites Los

6:30, 8pm, 3rd and Mission Streets

 KONRAD STEINER'S 'WAY' FILM PREMIERE
  The six part film follows the six sections of Leslie Scalapino's book
  length poem, 'way' (1988). (LS appears in a brief cameo in the film, but
  this is not a film of the poet reading.) As the poet performs the
  complete text on the soundtrack, a montage of images responds to various
  levels and qualities of movement in the reading: the narratives, the
  ideas, the cadences and melodies, the poetic images themselves. The look
  of the film is drawn from a variety of sources including 16mm film and
  video footage of San Francisco streets and bars, internet clips of
  Hollywood, documentary, personal and erotic video, and computer
  generated animation. While the film presents the poem (voiced), it
  doesn't illustrate, interpret or even "set" the poem. Aesthetically it
  offers the viewer an expanded "reading" experience of interpreting a
  complex braid of image and language. Philosophically i hope it follows a
  model of how individual elements can join without merging, can retain
  identity and commonality at once, without subordination to rules,
  programs, dogma or heirarchy. Co presented by the SFSU Poetry Center and
  YBCA

7:00pm, 100 Northern Ave

 BOSTON PREMIERE OF UNBOUND A NEW FILM BY ABIGAIL CHILD
  UNBOUND: Scenes from the Life of Mary Shelley. - 2013, 69 mins, 16mm,
  sound. - 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. Music by Zeena Parkins. - Filmmaker
  Abigail Child in attendance.

 HEARKENINGS PRESENTS EARLY FILMS BY D.W. GRIFFITH
  $5 / "The motion picture is an art, since it approaches more closely
  real life." That this quote comes from D.W. Griffith creates a paradox:
  he helped standardize many conventions of cinematic illusion, and yet he
  showed a dynamic receptivity to real life. What did he mean? This
  screening will feature a selection of short films made during Griffith's
  formative years at the Biograph Company including Fools of Fate (1909),
  Lines of White on a Sullen Sea (1909), A Corner in Wheat (1909), The
  Rose of Kentucky (1911), The Painted Lady (1912) and others. All films
  will be projected on 16mm.

  F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, and the Whitney Museum.
  Only the last three 'Environments' still exist in their complete
  versions. We will be screening them as they were originally presented,
  as three 16mm film images projected simultaneously side-by-side – the
  first time they've been shown this way since the 70s – and with early
  analog music by Niblock. CROSS COUNTRY/ENVIRONMENT II (1970, ca. 60 min,
  16mm) 100 MILE RADIUS/ENVIRONMENT III (1971, ca. 60 min, 16mm) TEN

 SAM GREEN’S TREE UTOPIA + DEAR COMRADE + JESSE DREW +        
  Mr. Green graces our gallery again with the debut of this "live cinema"
  piece on the generosity of tree-planting. His performance is paired with
  the endlessly inspiring Esperanto section of his Utopia in Four
  Movements. Echoing Sam's communitarian impulses is (in person) Mady
  Schutzman's hr-long essay on Llano del Rio, a 20th Century secular
  cooperative founded in Southern California by socialist Job Harriman.
  Her visit to a Colorado commune and staging of sci-fi scenes are among
  the parallel universes that play out the possibilities of intentional
  communities. AND another dear comrade, Jesse Drew, sets the tone on
  autonomous zones West of Eden (Iain Boal's new anthology). Sangria!

 PHIL NIBLOCK PROGRAM 2
  PROGRAM 2: THE MOVEMENT OF PEOPLE WORKING, PART 1 The series of films
  'The Movement of People Working' portrays human labor in its most
  elementary form. Shot by Niblock between 1973-91, on 16mm color film and
  later video, and in locations including Peru, Mexico, Hungary, Hong
  Kong, the Arctic, Brazil, Lesotho, Portugal, Sumatra, China, and Japan,
  the series comprises over 25 hours of footage (from which we'll be
  showing a selection). It focuses on work as a choreography of movements
  and gestures, dignifying the mechanical yet natural repetition of
  laborers' actions. PERU AND MEXICO (1973/74, 96 min, 16mm-to-digital
  video) BAY JAMES (1976, 25 min, 16mm-to-digital video) ARCTIC (1977, 25
