“An intergalactic deadpan farce that suggests a daft mashup of ‘The Ice Storm’ and ‘Space: 1999’.” — Joe Leydon, Variety

The cosmos can be a strange place for the lonely-hearted, the existentially bedeviled and the sexually frustrated, as the quiet genius of Space Station 76 explores with giddy poise.  Director Jack Plotnick (previously seen on the Cinefamily screen as the star of Quentin Dupieux’s absurdist farce Wrong) blends the makings of a retro-futuristic sci-fi spoof with the serio-comic emotion of a classic Frank Perry or Bob Rafelson “New Hollywood” gem — and in the process, this ensemble romp (featuring Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, Marisa Coughlan and Matt Bomer) contains a bevy of genuinely touching moments.  Plus, workplace angst hasn’t felt this right in ages, with Wilson in particular delivering an incredibly fine-tuned, low-key comedic turn as the Will Ferrell-esque, mustachioed captain of our dysfunctional deep-space outpost.  Awash with killer tunes from the likes of Todd Rundgren and Neil Sedaka, Space Station 76 easily goes where no other soapy space opera has gone before.

Co-presented by Chris Holmes. Filmmaker Noaz Deshe in person!

“Not merely an ancient tradition, the underground trade of albino body parts still pervades in Tanzania, ironically a country with one of the highest percentages of albinism in the world. Used primarily by witch doctors, these parts command thousands of dollars, offering tempting revenue for the working-class. In Noaz Deshe’s White Shadow, Alias, an albino adolescent, must navigate a world in which he’s not just an outsider, but actual prey. For him, survival means a constant watchfulness and protective isolation, even as he yearns for human connection, which he clandestinely cultivates with his cousin, and his young friend (and fellow albino) Salum. The film’s fractured, uneasy world zigzags between the village and the city, from transcendent flights of fancy to scenes of desperate brutality. But despite the pervasive, harrowing amorality of this world, it’s one not entirely bereft of hope, allowing Alias to grow into an identity beyond that of a hunted outcast.” (San Francisco Int’l Film Festival)

Co-presented by VICE

The subject of Somali pirates still strikes fear in the hearts of us Westerners, for it’s all a landscape that’s totally different than anything we could possibly know about. Shot in East Africa using first-time Somali actors, Fishing Without Nets ls the mesmerizing, sobering story of the region’s bandits from the Somali point-of-view. In Somalia, principled, young husband and father Abdi turns to piracy to support his family. While his wife and child wait for him in Yemen, an outdated and fragile satellite phone is his only connection to all he truly values. Here (in Sundance 2014′s winner for the Directing Award, U.S. Dramatic), debut feature filmmaker Cutter Hodierne combines the epic cinematic vision of a glorious action thriller with the intimate, textured qualities of an arthouse film, humanizing the pirates by bringing us inside their moral dilemmas and gut-wrenching struggles.

Across all of their work — whether commercial, personal, or both — John and Faith Hubley maintained a fiercely independent collaborative practice from the early-’50s to the late-’70s, allowing them the freedom found in the auteur-animators that had proliferated in Europe. These films (including a bevy of classic shorts for Sesame Street and The Electric Company) are solely creator-driven, rather than dictated by the whims of any studio bureaucracy, and would go on to win multiple Academy Awards. The ripples of their influence were immediate, giving birth to a looser, freer style used by animators across the ‘60s and ‘70s, prefiguring the rise of the psychedelic movement, and having a direct effect on future heavyweights like Ralph Bakshi. Emily & Georgia Hubley in person!

FRIDAY NIGHT FRIGHTS: Graduation Day (WORLD PREMIERE of brand-new restoration!)

9/26 - MIDNITE
$12/free for members

Co-presented by VINEGAR SYNDROME.

Nestled snugly in the cradle of the early-’80s slasher boom, Graduation Day is a perfect crystallization of what was wonderful and sleazy about that golden age of exploitation. Possessing all the scummy charm and blow-dried-and-feathered nostalgia of Sleepaway Camp, this 1981 film from Herb Freed (director of Haunts and Beyond Evil) functions as a decent whodunit, while never sacrificing great kills or peepshow nudity. Telling the tale of a fencing-masked killer stalking gymnasts on the eve of their high school sayonara, Freed’s camera stalks the victims in wonderful, stumbling POV sequences that would later become target fodder for horror-challenged critics like Siskel & Ebert. But we, the converted, know better. Graduation Day is now getting the full, glorious 4K restoration transfer, courtesy of Vinegar Syndrome — but before you catch the new Blu-Ray, peep the film with us as it was meant to be seen on the big screen.

The Hubleys’ blacklisting from the mainstream animation studio system in 1952, and the founding of their own basement shop, presented them with a wide-ranging freedom in both the commercial realm and their own personal works. This resulted in one of the first times American audiences recognized the animated medium as fine art, as John and Faith were able to address complicated subjects like race, environmental issues, and war — all while simultaneously celebrating the innocence of children. Saturday afternoon’s program presents a wide range of the Hubleys’ output, from a selection of TV ad spots to one of the couple’s most ambitious works, 1964′s Of Stars and Men: a spellbinding brew of dialogue-less, documentary style animation addressing humankind’s search for meaning in the universe. In typical Hubley fashion, these philosophical questions are revealed through the eyes of a child. Emily Hubley in person!

Screening selections:
- John Hubley ads collection (1950s, DCP, 8 min.)
- A Date with Dizzy (1958, DCP, 6 min.)

NOTE: this screening will start at 12:30am.We’re taking you beyond the universe to a future you’ve never seen before, an adults-only midnight movie rite of passage based on the wild ideas and even wilder visuals of the fantastical magazine of the same name. So strap in for an animated anthology that beautifully expands the boundaries of science fiction and fantasy while gratuitously pushing the limits of sex, violence and rock ‘n roll. It’s awesome! From the dystopian NYC of 2031 to the outer limits of space, following warrior maidens, hulking barbarians, glowing orbs and more, Heavy Metal is stoned, funky, funny and far out. There’s a raging soundtrack featuring Black Sabbath, Blue Öyster Cult, Cheap Trick and other rock gods, pitch-perfect voice acting from SCTV faves John Candy and Eugene Levy, plus tons of cartoon boobs, graphic gore, drugs and profanity. We guarantee Heavy Metal’s louder and nastier than ever; it’s gonna pop your eye sockets, blow your ear drums and boil your mind!

CO-PRESENTED BY WOMEN IN ANIMATION

After John Hubley’s tragic passing in 1977, Faith Hubley continued past their twenty collaborations to create an equally impressive solo filmography, with a stronger focus on non-linear abstractness. These works often draw on Faith’s deep interest in mythology, celebrate the mysterious and unknown — and perhaps most importantly, also highlight the feminine and the “other.” In a time when independent animation was already difficult enough for anyone to pursue, a solo female artist was virtually unheard of in the field. John and Faith’s daughter Emily followed in her mother’s footsteps, first assisting with Faith’s animations, and eventually creating her own personal work starting in the ‘90s. Emily’s free-wheeling, yet emotionally grounded filmic tone does have a family resemblance, but her voice is firmly her own. Emily Hubley in person!

The Golem (w/ live score by Jacaszek!)

9/30 - 7:30PM
$15/free for members

Co-presented by the STANLEY FILM FEST

A stark nightmare of technical imagery, exemplar of German expressionism, and a classic of the silent horror genre, The Golem is a gold standard onto which musicians of all eras have projected their deepest, darkest aural fantasies. Tonight’s live score by visiting Polish experimental wizard Jacaszek promises to be one of the most lush and terrifying of all. For the past decade, he’s painstakingly crafted collages of electronic textures and baroque instrumentation, as part of a new, resolutely modern chapter in classical music. These decaying samples, bursts of jagged melody and waking sci-fi dreamstates are a rapturous compliment to The Golem, as Jacasezk’s Eastern European sensibilities align perfectly with the film’s depiction of Prague in peril. Played by writer/director Paul Wegener, the astounding titular monster is molded from clay and brought to life by the Hebrew incantations of a rabbi wishing to defend a Jewish ghetto facing exile. The Golem displays comically literal obedience to the rabbi’s orders, successfully intimidating the aristocracy — but what will become of Prague now that a Golem lives within the city walls?
Dir. Paul Wegener, 1920, digital presentation, 91 min.

Best known to the masses as the man fired from his own network sitcom Community — but known to podcast fans as the center of gravity on the long-running, freeform joint “Harmontown” — Dan Harmon trawls his deepest depths of shame and self-doubt for humor and humanity on this rollicking party bus full of genuinely heartwarming moments.  This seriously funny road trip doc follows the descent and uneasy redemption of genius/vessel-of-god Harmon (both his own ironic phrases) on tour with girlfriend Erin and podcast co-stars Jeff and Spencer, as they record their show to packed houses across the country, and as they hang with friends like Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman and Jack Black along the way.  Helmed by Neil Berkeley (director of the Wayne White doc Beauty Is Embarrassing), Harmontown earns every deliciously gooey minute of moonshine-fueled, intimate fun.   And, as it offers up a touching celebration of the universal need to connect and create happiness, Harmontown reveals what it truly means to be a Harmonian: “a nerd who’s filled with love.”

Even in an era when action sludge was more common than shoulder pads or skinny ties, 1989’s Samurai Cop stood out as a true anomaly. Perhaps living legend Joe Bob Briggs summed it up best: a “recently unearthed, soon-to-be-classic kung-fu action-comedy skin flick with gratuitous gore elements.” That’s a good start, and yet there’s so much more. Ex-Stallone bodyguard Matt Hannon stars as Joe Marshall, a rock of a man who will do literally whatever it takes to punish the guilty — even if that means taking dozens of innocent lives in the process. Teamed up with truly hilarious sidekick Frank (whose African-American-ness and genitals are mentioned waaaay more than once), Joe embarks on an adventure so psychedelically violent and sex-tastic, there’s a chance Hunter S. Thomson will return from his “space ashes” just to drool along with us. Oh, and fear not, Robert Z’Dar fans, you’ll see plenty of the chin that made the Z famous, in rare bearded form.

CO-PRESENTED BY WARNER ARCHIVE

Through unparalleled makeup craftsmanship, physical endurance and skilled pantomime, Lon Chaney, Sr. shocked silent audiences with an endless variety of transformations that earned him the nickname “The Man of 1,000 Faces.” Through his sensitivity, Chaney lent his monsters what Eugene O’Neill called “the transfiguring nobility of tragedy [in] seemingly the most ignoble, debased lives.” Lon met his artistic match in filmmaker Tod Browning, the vibrant artist behind such talkie gems as Freaks and 1931’s Lugosi-laden Dracula, who would collaborate with the fearless Chaney for a total of 10 incredible features. This afternoon’s double bill represents the apex of their relationship, and two of the most bizarre silent features ever filmed: West of Zanzibar, a wild-spirited, deliciously convoluted jungle revenge picture featuring Chaney as a man with no legs and a twenty-year score to settle — and The Unknown, all about unrequited love, circus freaks, blackmail, amputation and a phobia about being touched by others’ hands (plus, it’s co-starring Joan Crawford!)

Dir. Neil Berkeley, 2014, DCP, 101 min.

SPECTREFEST: Nacho Party! (feat. L.A. premiere of "Open Windows", plus "Confetti of the Mind: Nacho Vigalondo Shorts")

10/4 - 9PM

Co-presented by FANTASTIC FEST

“You’ll hear names like Hitchcock and DePalma thrown around in discussions about Open Windows. Make no mistake; while such influences may be evident, what you’re left with after they’re processed through the wit and insanity of the man’s brain makes Open Windows pure Vigalondo.” — Brian Kelley, Fantastic Fest

Nacho Vigolando & Elijah Wood in person! Oscar-nominated writer/director Nacho Vigalondo has quickly blossomed one of our favorite devious moviemaking minds. From his award-winning shorts to Timecrimes, to Extraterrestrial and beyond, his consistent knack for inventive plot devices that transform the mundane into the extraordinary ends up blindsiding his characters into the most thrilling of circumstances. To that effect, Open Windows — his most ambitious project yet — stars Sasha Grey and Elijah Wood as a film star and her ultimate fan, in a completely unique and endlessly creative thriller for our age that takes place entirely on a single computer desktop. After the break, we’ll dive into Drafthouse Films’ newly-released special Confetti of the Mind, a tour of Nacho’s most brilliant shorts collected for the first time, and personally curated by Nacho and his longtime collaborator Nahikari Ipina. Confetti is not optional.
Open Windows Dir. Nacho Vigalondo, 2014, DCP, 100 min.
Confetti of the Mind Dir. Nacho Vigolondo, various, DCP, approx. 60 min.

GREG PROOPS FILM CLUB: I Married A Witch

$12/free for members

Greg Proops (one of the most mind-warpingly quick-draw improv comics on earth) records his monthly Film Club podcast live — and then it’s time for and then it’s time for a most whimsical Forties fantasy romance. Greg sez: “Long-haired vixen Veronica Lake is burned at the stake for being a Witch in colonial Salem. She puts a curse on her accuser, the staunch bummer Puritan Jonathan Wooley (Fredric March), forever making his male descendants marrying the wrong woman — until lightning hits the tree she and her alcoholic Warlock Dad are buried under. After that, the witches are free to make the curse happen in person. Directed by French master Rene Clair, this delightfully sexy romp was ripped off for the Bewitched TV show. Difference is, this movie is hilarious and filled with surprises. This Halloween, let’s laugh instead of wallowing in pain. Save that for when you get back in your car to drive home through Hollywood.”
Dir. Rene Clair, 1942, digital presentation, 77 min.

Q: Does Greg talk over the movies, like the Benson Interruption?
A: No. It is a recording of his podcast, followed by a screening of the film.

DEAD SNOW – 7:30pm
What’s better than a zombie movie? How about a tank-driving, gun-toting Swastika-emblazoned Fascist bastard of a zombie movie?! Indie horror filmmaking of the early day Raimi/Craven kind is alive and well in Norway; with 2009’s Dead Snow, Tommy Wirkola (who would later go on to helm the Hollywood flick Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters) adds his icy touch to the kind of low-budget, high-concept gore which those celebrated forefathers made great. Utilizing all the classic set pieces — the remote cabin, a group of rowdy, randy students, the stranger at the door, a white-out blizzard which makes escape impossible — Wirkola adds high speed humor and bucket loads of blood to come up with a fresh powder take on the walking-dead genre.
Dir. Tommy Wirkola, 2009, 35mm, 91 min.

DEAD SNOW 2: RED VS. DEAD – approx. 9:15pm
Director Tommy Wirkola, plus cast members Martin Starr & Jocelyn DeBoer in person! Picking up just a few moments after the first film left off, the brand-new Red vs. Dead offers a dizzy second round of fascist flesh feasters and Nordic black humor. Once again, the stark winter wonderland is stained crimson with the blood of innocents, as Colonel Herzog and his enraged battalion of decomposing National Socialists descend to enact ultra-violent revenge. With his fighting arm amputated and mysteriously replaced with a zombie-fied limb, Dead Snow’s protag Martin elicits the help of a motley group of American zombie film nerds (including our favorite Freaks and Geeks/Silicon Valley uber-dork Martin Starr) to take on the hordes of undead. Just plain good, goofy, gory fun!
Dir. Tommy Wirkola, 2014, DCP, 100 min.

10/23 - 7:30PM

Co-presented by the STANLEY FILM FEST

One of the greatest films in the annals of sci-fi, musically accompanied by the return of one of Cinefamily’s favorite analog synth wizards! A time-honored, pioneering portrait of an Expressionist Tomorrowland, Fritz Lang’s Metropolis had it all (according to its original press release): “8 stars, 25,000 men, 11,000 women, 1,100 bald people, 250 children, 3,500 pairs of special shoes, 50 cars.” What it also contained was a brilliant distillation of the Germany’s unconscious Zeitgeist energies, as that country lurched toward fascism in the Thirties — not to mention a peerless batch of indelible images. As we celebrate Metropolis as yesterday’s fantasy of what tomorrow could be, we welcome Stones Throw recording artist Chrome Canyon as the temporal technician for the job. The solo project of New York artist Morgan Z (who touched down upon Angeleno soil last year to permanently reside alongside us), Chrome Canyon creates synth sounds that move between eras past and ages imagined — an aural palate that’s a whizz-bang accompaniment for Fritz Lang’s classic version of an alternate now.

Watch Cinefamily’s original trailer for “Metropolis”! NOTE: this trailer contains last year’s Chrome Caynon-scored show of Metropolis; our correct screening date is 10/23/14.

Our annual month-long horror celebration concludes with the spine-tingling horror of The Tingler, Castle’s weirdo masterpiece of gimmickry about a lobster-shaped monster that feeds on terror within the human body. Aside from being the first film to use LSD as a plot device, the original theatrical run was presented in “Percepto,” whereby theater patrons were administered buzzer shocks in their seats, to simulate the monster’s attack. The result, of course, was giddy insanity, as star Vincent Price’s voice urges patrons to “scream for your lives!” Best of all, The Tingler features a major subplot based on the original Silent Movie Theatre itself and its creators, the Hamptons. Feel a tingle up your spine as you watch these scenes set in the very location where you are sitting — and maybe a tingle on your tuchas when we shock you Castle-style with real wired seats!

Being a teen girl is hard. You’ve got to deal with boys, boobs, bratty brothers and Brad, the hunky football star who doesn’t even know you’re alive. Uggghhh! But when you find out on your 16th birthday that you’re descended from Salem witches, life is, like, totally going to get complicated. Sure, Teen Witch is a sweet-natured coming-of-age fairy tale — but it’s also a top-tier rager: a mind-blowing non-stop fun machine dealing with the tough topics of today (rap battles, magical ability), a cotton-candy comedy packed with teased-out neon fashion, and a you’ll-never-get-it-out-of-your-head soundtrack of original songs (seriously, you’re gonna have to dig deep to Top That.) Plus, the cast’s got supernatural appeal: the sexy duo of Robyn Lively and Dan Gauthier, Near Dark’s Joshua John Miller and Poltergeist’s Zelda Rubinstein, just to get started. Grab your wand and head to Cinefamily to fall under the Teen Witch spell all over again!

Pulp: a Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets (11/26)

Pulp, best known stateside for their deliriously infectious anthem “Common People”, are one of the quintessential Britpop bands, so distinctly carrying their Northern UK heritage on their sleeve that to know them is to become an honorary citizen of Sheffield, their hometown. Taking that to heart, co-director Florian Habicht teams up with highly charismatic Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker to produce both a concert film chronicling the band’s 2012 farewell Sheffield show, and a “family album” of Sheffield regulars: the Common People. Habicht gets these vox populists to wax fondly about what the town means to them, and how Pulp has woven itself into the very fabric of the town’s lasting culture. “Cocker’s knack for keeping it real, for drawing from regular experience and feeding back into it, is the film’s effortlessly realised QED. If you ever had your head invaded for days on end by Pulp’s ‘Common People’, prepare to have it reoccupied, this time with a portrait gallery for company. If you haven’t, there could hardly be a more irresistible invitation to join the party.” (New Zealand Int’l Film Festival)
