8pm, GrayDUCK Gallery, 2213 East Cesar Chavez Street
SPACE MATERIAL / IMMATERIAL PLACE: JEREMY MOSS IN PERSON
Filmmaker Jeremy Moss, whose work has screened around the globe from the 
Crossroads Film Festival in San Francisco to the Arkipel International 
Documentary and Experimental Film Festival in Indonesia, brings to Austin a 
60-minute program of recent moving image work. In the summer of 2011, Moss 
began expanding beyond his narrative training to fully explore expressionistic 
structural tendencies and its application to place and the moving body, 
creating the Super8 surrealist documentary THOSE INESCAPABLE SLIVERS OF 
CELLULOID, the abstract hand-made 16mm films produced at the Independent 
Imaging Retreat, THE SIGHT and CICATRIX, the dance for camera pieces in 
collaboration with choreographer Pamela Vail, (UN)TETHERED, CHROMA, and THAT 
DIZZYING CREST, and the essay film in collaboration with writer Erik Anderson, 
THE BLUE RECORD. As a program, these works cohesively embody an immersive 
optical and sonic experience reveling in cinema’s capacity for both meditative 
expression and the
rigors of formal experimentation.

SHAPESHIFTERS CINEMA PRESENTS KEITH AND GEOFF EVANS
Keith Evans is an activist who has been working and performing in the Bay Area 
for 25 years. His artworks are translation systems, fascination devices, 
extra-cinematic experiences that reveal the phenomenon and the idea of cinema 
as an ecology and system, one that is unfixed and accreting, neither nostalgic 
nor utopian. Collaborator Geoff Evans is an Oaklander who has been involved in 
many musical projects for 25 years. "the mantle degassed our water" is another 
in a series of Evans' para-naturalist cinema systems--an arrangement of 
near-working and functioning pieces of electronic equipment and formats 
including super-8, video arrays, record players, 3/4" tape md cassettes casio 
and guitar as well as objects found in field research used to explore the 
para-cinamatic. Together they are a device and a hazard of set-ups that 
embraces the mechanical, mercurial and unique perceptual relationships between 
these things; their relationships in space as well as on the screen. "the
mantle degassed our water" is evocative of the elemental transformative forces 
at work inside the earth. This electromagnetic device becomes a para-cinematic 
journey to the underworld where, locked within rare and highly compressed 
mineral arrangements, is more water than resides on the surface. Stratigraphies 
and veils flatten and blur into highlights. Spectral screens carry the images, 
glaciers score a path of stained glass. Process gives way to image and process 
again. The sound and space integrate the vision while the key component of 
curiosity illuminates this fascination device.

GIUSEPPE MAKES A MOVIE: NY PREMIERE RUN!
NEW YORK THEATRICAL PREMIERE RUN! While the rest of America sleeps, DIY 
filmmaker/musician Giuseppe Andrews (a one-time teen actor in INDEPENDENCE DAY 
and DETROIT ROCK CITY) has made over 30 experimental features with titles like 
DOILY'S SUMMER OF FREAK OCCURRENCES, TRAILER TOWN, and UTOPIA BLUES, set in 
some demented alternate universe (i.e. Ventura, California) populated by 
real-life alcoholics and drug addicts, trash-talking senior citizens and 
trailer park residents dressed in cow outfits and costume-shop wigs, acting out 
booze-fueled vignettes of severe psychosis filtered through Giuseppe's John 
Waters-meets-Harmony Korine-meets-Werner Herzog sensibility. With GIUSEPPE 
MAKES A MOVIE, Adam Rifkin has created a wildly surreal, outrageously funny, 
and strangely touching portrait of a truly Outsider Artist, as he follows 
Giuseppe and his seriously impaired troupe on the production of his latest 
2-day opus, GARBANZO GAS, starring Vietnam Ron as a cow given a weekend reprieve
from the slaughterhouse at the local motel. Beyond the sun-stroked Theater of 
the Absurd madness of Giuseppe's vision, there is a remarkable and endearing 
sense of family among the director, his amiably bonkers dad Ed, patient 
girlfriend Mary, Sir Bigfoot George, and the rest of his surreal Trailer Park 
rep company. As skate-punk Spit sagely observes about Giuseppe's movies: 
"They're just like, nothing really makes any sense, and I don't know, that's 
kinda how reality is, and nobody really cares to accept that."

PROVIDENCE & FRIENDS AT UNIONDOCS
Magic Lantern presents Providence & Friends, a broad sampling of recent New 
England film, video & multimedia performance. This past summer, Magic Lantern 
put out a call for its first submission-based program. They were interested in 
seeing contemporary work by local artists in the vicinity of Providence, 
Boston, and New Haven, and in bringing this work to the attention of others in 
a timely celebration of regional filmmaking. All of the artists featured in 
Providence & Friends are, or were until very recently, based in the area. 
Providence & Friends ranges from small, unpretentious 8mm love letters to the 
most advanced digital manipulations, from beautiful abstractions to politicized 
travelogues, and from the finished form of recorded media to the contingencies 
of live performance. Its scope is as big as Providence is small. Featuring 
works by Sarah Abu Abdallah, Alexander Dupuis, Dave Fischer, Tara & Gordon 
Nelson, Mariya Nikiforova, Adrian Randall, Deirde Sargent, Asha
Tamirisa, Derek Taylor, Arvid Tomayko-Peters, Matthew Underwood, Freddie Wiss.

5:00pm, 320 E 6th St
THE VANQUISHING OF THE WITCH BABA YAGA
Following fairy-tales and personal memories like a trail of breadcrumbs, The 
Vanquishing of the Witch Baba Yaga descends into Eastern Europe's haunted 
woodlands to uncover the secrets and bloody histories that shape our 
understanding of man's place in nature. Programmed by Tommy Swenson. "In her 
singular assemblage of disparate aesthetic strands, and her radical disregard 
for conventional modes of storytelling, Oreck may most fully embody another, 
far more exciting interpretation of the label of a new director or a new film, 
that of fresh filmmaker creating an altogether new kind of art." - Jordan 
Cronk, Fandor The Vanquishing of the Witch Baba Yaga by Jessica Oreck 73 min / 
digital / sound / 2014 Within a dense forest there lingers a sense of sinister 
foreboding, remnants of a nearly forgotten story, where the fairy tales of 
childhood persist within the subconscious. For generations of Slavic peoples, 
this fear manifested itself in the form of the mythical witch Baba Yaga -
to roam too near her hut perched on chicken legs was to risk being roasted for 
her dinner. In spite of this culturally ingrained dread, the turbulance of war, 
famine, and destruction that stain the pages of Eastern European history led to 
the witch's figurative vanquishing. Refugees fled to her woods for shelter, 
nourishment and sanctuary, and in so doing, reshaped an entire culture's 
perception of nature. This transition was slow and unconcious, and is best told 
through the stories of the region - the memories of those who experienced 
periods of warfare first-hand as well as the recollections that have passed 
generation to generation. To bring these stories to life, we have merged 
countless accounts into a single, unified narrative - an animated fairy tale 
that gathers history, folklore, and memory into one. This fairy tale is 
intertwined with an anthropological exploration of modern day, post-conflict 
Eastern Europe. Combining these elements, The Vanquishing is about more
than a single moment in history. It is about the accumulation of history, the 
accumulation of repetitive action, the retelling of stories retold, the 
retention of belief, and the unconscious osmosis of ideas. It is a study of 
collective memory and the sociology of fear, imagination and survival.

BELLA VISTA
Vera Brunner-Sung ("Common Ground" - screened at Filmforum in 2009) returns to 
Filmforum with her first feature film, Bella Vista, shot in her new home state, 
Montana. A quiet portrait of a peripatetic schoolteacher and her newest flock 
of energetic students, Brunner-Sung finds the cinematic connections between 
internal emotions and external landscapes, where loneliness and Big Sky country 
feed each other, and how other people can disrupt a life’s course. Tickets: $10 
general admission; $6 students (with ID)/seniors; free for Filmforum members. 
Tickets available in advance at
