>> Subject: [Frameworks] TONIGHT 3.30 7pm - Jonas Mekas "365 Day Project -
>> Part 3 - March" at Microscope, Mekas in person w. pizza and rootbeer
>> admission $6 - free for members
>>
>> Microscope is very pleased to announce the premiere of *PART THREE* “March”
>> from Jonas Mekas’ “365 Day Project” as the third of a 12-part program,
>> screened at the end of each month, comprising the nearly 38-hour long video
>> project. For the year of 2007, Mekas challenged himself to make and upload
>> a video on his website each day, at times repurposing or incorporating
>> previously unseen footage from his earlier 16mm films and analog videos.
>>
>> Originally each of the videos, ranging from 30 seconds to 30 minutes,
>> were made available for download and playable on smartphones at a time when
>> Facebook had just been made publicly accessible, Youtube had just been
>> acquired by Google, and the first iPhone was about to be released later
>> that year.
>>
>> Among the many highlights of *Part Three (Days 60 – 90)* are Madonna
>> concert at Madison Square Garden, Peter Kubelka playing a Tibetan gong,
>> Jonas seeking  “silence please”, a drink with Zoe Lund at the Mars Bar,
>> snowballs, saunas and a dip in a freezing lake in Tampere Finland, and a
>> requiem for a broken tree in Brooklyn.
>>
>> “Every day of the year 2007 I placed on my website one new video usually
>> about three to ten minutes in length.  By the time the project ended, I had
>> made 38 hours of completed video works, the equivalent of twenty feature
>> films… It was the most challenging undertaking I had ever done. The videos
>> deal with my life in Brooklyn and my many travels of that year. It’s
>> personal and anthropological (impersonal) at the same time.  During my
>> travels I relied a lot on technical and other help from The Gang (Benn
>> Northover, Sebastian Mekas — I travel most of the time with The Gang) and
>> Elle Burchill was always ready at my Brooklyn station. You’ll see a lot of
>> me and my friends, various daily activities, gettings together, a lot of
>> music, and a lot of events around New York and Europe that year. The main
>> challenge was to record it and share it immediately with many friends all
>> over the world. Today I still do the same, but not daily, with less
>> pressure, on my website www.jonasmekas.com”

>> Dear Frameworkers,
>>

>>
>> I am proud to share with you details of the series (though I apologize
>> for being late on this)
>>
>>
>> *RED REFLECTIONS OF LIFE*
>>
>> Los Angeles College (LAC) and the Institute for American Indian and
>> Indigenous Art and Media (IAIIAM) proudly present Red Reflections of Life 
>> film
>> series this week at California Institute of the Arts. We will screen
>> over 600 minutes of film and video by contemporary indigenous artists this
>> Monday (3/30) thru Friday (4/3). Red Reflections of Life borrows its
>> name from artist and Cal Arts alum Richard Ray Whitman (Yuchi/Creek). As a
>> young student of painting and film, Whitman participated in a documentary
>> produced by the Institute of American Indian Arts titled "Red Reflections"
>> (1969). He continued working with community driven films, ultimately
>> developing a mixed-media body of work critiquing U.S. aggression toward
>> cultural, political, and institutional sovereignty of American Indians. His
>> interrogation of Native American survival is too mirrored in his dedication
>> to social work and form of creative practice.
>>
>> Red Reflections of Life echoes Whitman's urgency and refusal of cultural
>> and institutional mores. Our goals include expansion of American Indian
>> work in both academic and creative discourse, investigation of
>> multiplicities of American Indian narrative(s), and destabilization of
>> conventional history telling and memory making.
