CINESPIA SALON: Numero Group presents a Ned Doheny Record Release Party (feat. "The Ski Bum!)

Co-presented by THE NUMERO GROUP

Join us for a special in-person Q&A appearance by L.A. stalwart singer/songwriter (and self-proclaimed “avatar for casual vulgarity”) Ned Doheny, an advance chance to purchase his new Numero Group compilation “Separate Oceans”, and an ultra-rare IB Tech 35mm screening of The Ski Bum: one of the Seventies’ oddest counterculture curios, featuring cameos by Ned and Jackson Browne. Plus, Ski Bum filmmaker Bruce Clark in person! It’s The Graduate on the slopes, only with psychedelic fringes, hippies, dope deals, bizarre fantasy sequences and enough reverb-echo for a Joe Meek tribute. Before he was an auteur du sexy with Wild Orchid and Red Shoe Diaries, Zalman King starred in a number of Seventies underground dramas such as tonight’s film, in which he’s an angry young man in a wintery Colorado resort town, trying his best to avoid the ski-bummer that lies dead ahead if he complies with the sinister wishes of the burg’s local plutocrat. Co-starring Charlotte Rampling, this highly unusual tale is awash in expansive, snow-capped ‘scope cinematography and a whirlwind of spacey vibes.
Dir. Bruce D. Clark, 1971, 35mm, 94 min.
