SHAPESHIFTERS CINEMA PRESENTS GRACE ROSARIO PERKINS + ARC
Using visual objects such as paintings, masks, textiles, and print material to 
create sound, Arc + Grace Rosario will create a performance that serves as a 
lens into the intersection of the different wave forms that make up our 
world-\-\ light, gravity, color, and matter ARC arc refers to a process rather 
than an author. a curve within a void which makes something momentarily 
visible. material elements used to investigate immaterial states. framing the 
space of encounter as a site of unfixed ritual and sensory research. arc work 
has been presented at The Lab, San Francisco Cinematheque, Berkeley Art Museum 
and Pacific Film Archive, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Ann Arbor 
Film Festival, Massart Film Society (Boston), NDSM Treehouse (Amsterdam), and 
L' Abominable (Paris/La Courneuve), among others. GRACE ROSARIO PERKINS Having 
spent most of her life moving between city centers, the Navajo Nation, and the 
Gila River Indian Community, Grace Rosario Perkins is interested in 
disassembling her personal narrative and reassembling it as one that layers 
words, objects, faces, signifiers, and sound built from cultural dissonance, 
language, and history. Grace has lectured at venues such as the Mills College, 
UC Santa Barbara, Occidental College, the San Francisco Public Library, Real 
Time and Space Oakland, and the Museum of Arts and Design NY. She has been an 
artist-in-residence at ACRE, Varda Artists Residency, Sedona Summer Colony,

DAïCHI SAïTO: MATERIAL TRACES
In person: Daïchi Saïto Filmforum welcomes filmmaker Daïchi Saïto from Montreal 
in the second of two programs. Over the past fifteen years, Montreal-based film 
artist Daïchi Saïto has created a singular body of analog film work in which 
the rigor of his conceptualization and execution is matched only by the intense 
beauty and power of his images. Manipulating his film material by hand via 
chemistry and optics, Saïto's work gives material dimension to otherwise 
elusive notions of ephemerality, confusion, subjectivity, and memory. REDCAT is 
honored to partner with Los Angeles Filmforum, through support of the Mike 
Kelley Foundation for the Arts, to bring Daïchi Saïto to Los Angeles for his 
first retrospective program. The evening will feature films in Super 8, 35mm, 
and 16mm double-projection, encapsulating a body of work and an evening of 
filmmaking that promises to astonish. - Mark Toscano

Berlin, Germany: Light Movement
20:30, Spektrum, Bürknerstraße 12, 12047 Berlin
LIGHT MOVEMENT 27: LUKE FOWLER 
Over the past 15 years, British artist, filmmaker and musician Luke Fowler has 
developed a practice that is, at the same time, singular and collaborative, 
poetic and political, structural and documentary, archival and deeply human. 
With an emphasis on communities of people, outward thinkers and the history of 
the left, his 16mm films tell the stories of alternative movements in Britain, 
from psychiatry to photography to music to education. Working with archival 
materials, his own 16mm footage, and sound recordings made in collaboration 
with sound artists such as Lee Patterson and Eric La Casa, Fowler has 
constructed complex portraits of psychiatrist R.D. Laing, experimental composer 
Cornelius Cardew, Marxist historian E.P. Thompson and reclusive 
environmentalist Bogman Palmjaguar. Whilst some of his early films – such as 
Pilgrimage from Scattered Points (2006) – dealt with music and musicians as 
subjects, in later works, most notably A Grammar for Listening (2009), sound 
itself becomes a key concern. Sound as process but also sound as a possibility 
for approaching filmmaking practice from a more acknowledged collective 
position. For Fowler’s work, the social and artistic relationship with an 
individual, and how such a relationship is built up into a collaboration, are 
essential. Oscillating between a tradition that reaches back to filmmakers such 
as Gregory Markopoulos, Warren Sonbert and Robert Beavers – on whom P. Adams 
Sitney has written the filmmaker is “a hands craftsman, focusing the lens, 
pushing a filter across the plane of vision, making a splice” – and a 
collaborative, almost communal approach to artistic creation, Fowler’s own 
influences draw equally from experimental music, British Free cinema and 
American avant-garde film. (text: Maria Cruz, Courtisane

ROBERT SCHALLER'S FILM SONATA
For more than twenty years, Robert Schaller has been making films that are 
fundamentally concerned with two essential aspects of filmmaking: the 
materiality of the film medium itself, and the creation of “visual music” 
through applying the formal structures of music to filmmaking. Most recently he 
has been using hand-coated silver emulsion and a homemade pinhole camera to 
film according to precisely composed camera scores, visually constellating the 
world around him into elegant and often elusive visual forms, and addressing 
issues of human nature and our relationship to the natural world both within 
and around us. Tonights program will feature 16mm films with live piano and 
cello accompaniment.

ON THE AIR: ARTIST TELEVISION + "BROADCASTING: EAI AT ICA"
ON THE AIR is a new series that presents works made by artists for broadcast 
television. This ongoing survey will showcase experiments undertaken by artists 
and visionary producers beginning in the late 1960s at public television 
stations like WGBH in Boston, KQED in San Francisco, and WNET in New York. 
Rather than a video art survey, or a series of films that feature television 
imagery or the manipulation of CRT monitors, this project will showcase work 
created by artists explicitly for over-the-air broadcast on television to a 
public audience. We're thrilled to partner with Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) 
for this very special variety show program, presented in conjunction with the 
exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, "Broadcasting: 
EAI at ICA," on view February 2-March 25, 2018. This program will unearth some 
of the best, most bizarre, and most entertaining works that artists have 
broadcast on television, from experiments with purchased airtime to unannounced 
broadcast interventions. Expect surprises, oddities, and the unclassifiable - 
from Ernie Kovacs, Stan Douglas, Chris Burden, Dara Birnbaum, and much more! 
"Broadcasting: EAI at ICA" brings together an intergenerational group of 
artists whose time-based artworks are produced in concert with their means of 
circulation, from the democratic platform of public access television to the 
instantaneity of social media. Drawing primarily from the collection of EAI, 
which was founded in New York in 1971 with a mission to distribute and preserve 
video and media art work, "Broadcasting" will focus on how artists exploit the 
act of broadcast as a subject, a means of intervention, and as a form of 
participation. The exhibition and related programming will encourage feedback 
and process over static reception, with public discussions staged within the 
gallery and broadcast beyond the physical walls of the museum. Artists in the 
exhibition include Tony Cokes, Ulysses Jenkins, JODI, Shigeko Kubota, Robert 
Beck, and Kristin Lucas. For more information about the exhibit visit: 
icaphila.org/ Curated and hosted by EAI's Rebecca Cleman and Anthology's Ava 
Tews. Special thanks to Josh Mills of Ediad Productions, and to Ben Model.

Jeanne Liotta returns to the gallery for a screening of her films and videos 
taking place in connection with her current solo exhibition at the gallery 
“Break The Sky”, which has been extended through March 4th. The works in the 
program, spanning a period of two decades – from Liotta’s first film “Blue 
Moon” (1988), an “erratic, erotic, arrhythmic lunar trauma”, to her 2009 
“Sutro”, an animated glitch portrait of the 997 ft. Sutro TV and radio tower in 
San Francisco – are centered around the artist’s long-term interest in the 
observation of the sky, celestial events, and the technologies used to broaden 
our knowledge of the universe. Among the other six works on the program are the 
16mm films “Eclipse” (2005), which documents “by eye and hand” the 2003 lunar 
eclipse and appeared in the Whitney Biennial 2006, and “Observando el Cielo” 
(2007), her multi-award winning film featuring time lapses of the night sky 
from footage she shot over a period of seven years from remote areas as well as 
observatories. Full program notes and artist bio at www.microscopegallery.com

SHOW AND TELL: STEPHANIE BARBER
IN THE JUNGLE (2017, 63 min, digital. With Cricket Arrison (of Wham City) and 
M.C. Schmidt (of Matmos).) Stephanie Barber has achieved the rare feat of 
carving out a cinematic (or more properly speaking, media-spanning) realm 
entirely her own. Equally attuned to the nuances of the moving image and of 
language, her short and occasional feature-length film and video works meld 
together elements of photography, poetry, music, and live performance, and 
display a sensibility that's at once comical, lyrical, and melancholy. Her 
latest piece, IN THE JUNGLE playfully and sorrowfully tells the tale of an 
unreliable narrator in a self-imposed exile. Given a grant to study the 
equivalent of animal cries and whines in jungle flora, our heroine has lived 
for 1,612 days deep in an unnamed jungle. This jungle serves as an extended 
metaphor for excessive and continual growth and death and fear and sustenance, 
a metaphorical space of chaos in which the scientist finds solace and which 
stands in contrast to the human jungle of 'civilization.' Is IN THE JUNGLE - 
which grew out of a live performance - a filmed document of a theater piece, a 
musical, a poetic lecture, or some combination of all of the above? In Barber's 
hands, as in so much of her work, the distinctions don't matter, especially 
when the result is as transporting, thought-provoking, and magical as IN THE 
JUNGLE. "Like much of Barber's creative labor, IN THE JUNGLE exists in the 
tension of both recognizing the profound beauty of the natural world that we 
inhabit while coming to grips with the inadequacies of our knowledge systems, 
including language, to describe and understand it." -Bret McCabe "Barber 
approaches cinema as a philosophical toy, intimately small, in which the play 
itself generates both pleasure and insight." -Ed Halter, AFTERALL ONLINE

BILL MORRISON’S DAWSON CITY: FROZEN TIME
Bill (Decasia) Morrison appears in person to introduce this meditation on 
cinema’s past, piecing together the bizarre but true story of a long-lost 
collection of 533 nitrate film prints from the early 1900s! Located just south 
of the Arctic Circle, Dawson City became the center of the Canadian Gold Rush 
that brought in 100,000 prospectors. It was also the final stop for a 
distribution chain that sent prints to the Yukon. The films were seldom, if 
ever, returned. This collection was uncovered in 1978 when a bulldozer working 
its way through a parking lot dug up a cache of film cans. Morrison draws on 
these permafrost-protected dramas and newsreels, pairing them with interviews, 
historical photographs, and an enigmatic score by Sigur Rós collaborator and 
composer Alex Somers. Free Canadian beer to celebrate the launch of 
OtherZine#33! $8

LYNNE SACHS: TIP OF MY TONGUE
Filmmaker Lynne Sachs in person! LA premiere! Filmforum welcomes back Lynne 
Sachs with her latest films. In Tip of My Tongue, twelve New Yorkers born in 
the early 1960s across several continents “visit” every year of their lives in 
a brash, self-reflexive experiment about what it’s meant to live in America 
over the last half century. Director and participant Lynne Sachs, who wrote her 
own series of 50 poems for every year of her life, guides her collaborators 
across the landscape of their memories. She gives each person the same 
historical timeline as a catalyst for an exploration of the relationship 
between their personal lives and the times in which they have lived. Initially 
strangers with nothing in common but their age, the group works together 
writing, performing and filming. Using the backdrop of the horizon as it meets 
the water in each of NYC’s five boroughs as well as abstracted archival 
material, Sachs’ project becomes an activator in the resurrection of complex, 
sometimes paradoxical reflections. In the dreamscape of the movie, each 
participant embraces shards of the past, knowing that his or her connection to 
a historical moment may be tenuous but allowing for that ambiguity and mystery. 
In this way, traditional timelines are replaced by a multi-layered, cinematic 
architecture that both speaks to and visualizes the nature of historical 
expression. Preceded by a sneak preview of "Carolee, Barbara & Gunvor" (2018)

CC31 - JOSH WEISSBACH: DOMESTIC EMULSION
Tickets: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3231653 Josh Weissbach's 
artistic practice is materially committed to analog film, a choice driven by 
his attraction to the breadth, limitations, and tangible manipulations of the 
16mm frame. Employing experimental and non-fiction filmmaking techniques, the 
entirety of Weissbach's cinematic project has been informed by topoanalysis, 
which is defined by Gaston Bacherlard as the "study of the sites of our 
intimate lives." This has mostly manifested itself within The Addresses, which 
is an ongoing series of films that primarily focuses on the process of domestic 
spaces being unbuilt by familial trauma.
