7:00 pm, MOCA Grand Avenue, Ahmanson Theater, 250 S. Grand Ave.,
SMALL, REAL: OBSERVATION AND THE MUNDANE 
Filmmakers Huey Amaru, Cleon Arrey, Sarah Ibrahim, and Shabier Kirchner in 
person One Day at a Time: Manny Farber and Termite Art is inspired by artist 
Manny Farber’s call for an art of “both observing and being in the world.” 
Presented in conjunction with Kahlil Joseph’s film Fly Paper, which is the 
subject of a companion exhibition at MOCA Pacific Design Center, this program 
presents experimental film and video works that employ the constituent parts of 
Joseph’s practice, namely observation, musicality, and a documentary impulse. 
Works by Sarah Ibrahim, Shabier Kirchner, Cleon Arrey, Micah Ariel Watson, and 
Huey Amaru acutely capture the material, immaterial, and in between with 
intimate actualizations of Black life. Fragments and representations of the 
mundane become transcendent in their devotion to the ordinary and articulation 
of care. Tickets: $15 general; $10 for seniors; $8 for students with ID; free 
for Filmforum and MOCA members. Available in advance from Brown Paper Tickets 
at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3923890 or at the door.

9:00 PM, 32 Second Avenue
CITY SYMPHONIES: RIEN QUE LES HEURES 
by Alberto Cavalcanti. (NOTHING BUT THE HOURS) One of the very first city 
symphonies, this film interweaves documentary, experimental, and narrative 
elements that together provide vivid images of Paris in the mid-1920s. The 
Brazilian-born Cavalcanti was at the time a central figure of the French 
avant-garde, but his fascinating career would later find him making pioneering 
documentaries for John Grierson's GPO Film Unit in the UK in the 1930s, dramas, 
noirs, and musicals for Ealing Studios throughout the 1940s, and finally a wide 
array of films in Brazil, East Germany, France, and Israel in the years before 
his death in 1982.

5:45 PM, 32 Second Avenue
CITY SYMPHONIES: STUDIES OF PARIS 
by André Sauvage. (ÉTUDES SUR PARIS) Restored print courtesy of CNC - 
Direction du patrimoine. "[This film by] writer, painter, photographer, 
filmmaker, producer, and passionate traveler André Sauvage…starts on the 
city's outskirts, exploring a landscape gradually getting more industrialized 
and urbanized before approaching its core. […] An elaborate expository 
travelogue (with intertitles indicating the various locations), the film 
constantly shifts to a poetic mode marked by an Impressionist predilection for 
water and smoke and for shifting fragments - reflections of light, parts of 
statues, legs of pedestrians, hectic traffic, playing children looking directly 
into the camera, a stray cat, a noticeably staged encounter between lovers, et 
cetera. Sauvage's use of tilted angles, reverse motion, fast motion, and 
superimpositions rarely evokes the kineticism of the metropolis, as in the 
films by Ruttmann and Vertov; instead, his special effects turn Paris into a 
place of estrangement and a site of Surreal encounters." -Steven Jacobs, THE 
CITY SYMPHONY PHENOMENON Preceded by: Joris Ivens RAIN / REGEN (1929, 12 min, 
16mm, silent) This model "city poem" observes, as Ivens put it, the changing 
face of the city (Amsterdam) during the rain. Filmed at a moment's notice over 
the course of four months - inclement weather permitting - but edited into a 
single passing shower, the film is Ivens's finest gem of the 1920s.
