30th Anniversary!

12/26/2012 - 9:50PM

Muppet creator Jim Henson’s ambitious bid for status as both a serious filmmaker and a pioneer in fantasy storytelling was forever cemented on December 17th, 1982, with the release of The Dark Crystal — and ever since, those who have seen it have never forgotten its completely fresh, revolutionary new world created entirely through puppets and creative art design. In an undefined land and time, a repulsive, dragon-like race called the Skeksis have stolen a large, damaged purple crystal which provides them power and knowledge, and it’s up to Jen, a young elfen creature whose race is destined to heal the crystal, to accept his quest. Emerging from the greatest era the world of cinema fantastique has yet given us (Blade Runner, Conan the Barbarian, Time Bandits, Excalibur, Videodrome, The Secret of NIMH et al.), The Dark Crystal’s entrancingly-realized universe, courtesy of renowned conceptual artist Brian Froud, bursts at the seams with impossibly rich detail, remaining an absolute high point in the Henson universe. Oh, yes — and did we forget to mention that it’s one of the most double-über-awesome movies we’ve ever shown?
Dirs. Jim Henson & Frank Oz, 1982, 35mm, 93 min.

Everything Is Terrible! Holiday Special 2012! The Cataclysmic Transformation! (MIDNIGHT SHOW)

EIT, live on ice!
eit_xmas2012_website
12/22/2012 - MIDNITE

This holiday season, world-famous psychedelic soldiers of found footage Everything Is Terrible! return with another epic masterpiece! Over the last 5 years, EIT! has built upon their classic Holiday Special regarding everyone’s least favorite time of the year, piling on layers of erotic Santas, Nazi elves, misplaced sentimentalities, fistfights over toys-for-tots and an endless parade of singing kids that will surely destroy us all. As they sculpt an ever-more-abominable collage out of a millennium’s worth of VHS memories, EIT! asks: will this holiday season be our last? Will our Mayan brothers and sisters of so many moons ago be correct in their prediction of doom? There’s only one way to find the answers — and that’s to watch one more crappy holiday special. As always, EIT! will appear live to present the evening’s festivities in all of their fur-covered glory — and this time, they promise to convert every stage into the tackiest winter wonderland imaginable with all the trimmings: puppets, sing-a-longs, candy, fake snow, and a visit from the big man himself. The word “miraculous” falls short to describe the happenings of this Cataclysmic Transformation!

Triple Fisher: The Lethal Lolitas of Long Island

World premiere!
triplefisher_website
12/12/2012 - 10:30PM

A scathing critique/celebration of early-’90s tabloid culture, twenty years in the making! Back in 1992, a suburban New York teenager named Amy Fisher captured the national media’s attention when she shot her lover’s wife in the face. This sordid tale of underage sex, aggravated assault and Joey Buttafuoco managed to spawn not one, not two, but three separate made-for-TV movies — a television first. Drew Barrymore (The Amy Fisher Story), Alyssa Milano (Casualties of Love: The “Long Island Lolita” Story) and Nöelle Parker (Lethal Lolita — Amy Fisher: My Story) all took stabs at portraying the damaged young lady, yet a true on-screen depiction of Amy Fisher has never emerged — until now. In this Rashomon of found footage, director Dan Kapelovitz (“Threee Geniuses”) mind-melds the multiple melodramas into one ultimate metadrama mashup. World premiere!

Miami Connection (Dec. 8)

Proof that God exists!

12/8/2012 - MIDNITE

“Awesome & proof that God exists…A Psychotronic Masterpiece!” — Ain’t It Cool News

“Hilarious Yet Oddly Touching, Goofy, Yet Totally Sincere, This Is One Of The Most Entertainingly Bizarre Movies I’ve Ever Seen.” — Matt Singer, Screencrush

“Miami Connection has repeatedly destroyed our audience in a more powerful way than anything else in the 15 years of our theater’s existence.” – Zack Carlson, Alamo Drafthouse

There are films that we save for a rainy day — and, baby, it’s fucking pouring! The year is 1987. Motorcycle ninjas tighten their grip on Florida’s narcotics trade, viciously annihilating anyone who dares move in on their turf. Multi-national martial arts rock band Dragon Sound have had enough, and embark on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice in the streets of Orlando, Florida. Directed by 9th-degree black belt philosopher/author/inspirational speaker Grandmaster Y.K. Kim, Miami Connection is pretty much the most entertaining film you will ever see. EVER. Be there.
Dir. Richard Park, 1987, 90 min.

Our dream version of a TED talk!

Co-presented by Everything Is Festival

We’re unspeakably excited to have Joel Hodgson — the hilarious and awesome creator of both Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Cinematic Titanic — return to the Cinefamily for what basically amounts to our dream version of a TED talk. It’s going to be an incredible evening of stories and surprises: Joel will wax poetic about his forays into the depths of B-movie insanity, his search for the ultimate ventriloquist dummy (and how that dummy became the inspiration for both “Tom Servo” and “Crow”), the origin story of MST3K and the crazy array of TV pilots he’s been involved in over the years. Plus, he’s capping it all off with a screening of the MST3K version of Santa Claus Conquers The Martians! It’s going to be a very weird, very special night.

The Incredible, Indelible Films of Manuel Delanda

Audacious, outlandish, subversive and insane!
manueldelanda_website2
12/4/2012 - 7:30PM
Co-presented by Los Angeles Filmforum

“An anarchist who studies analytical philosophy, Manuel DeLanda makes aggressive, wild movies that simultaneously leap all over the place and stand absolutely still. A touch of the happy charlatan is similarly brought to his glitter punk credentials that hark back to such diverse Spanish-speaking surrealists as Arrabal, Buñuel, Dali, and Jodorowsky — although, unlike most of his predecessors, DeLanda prefers LSD and computers to the sacraments and anti-Christs of Catholicism in establishing the terms of his shock (and semi-mock) rebellion.” –Jonathan Rosenbaum

Audacious. Outlandish. Subversive. Intense. Insane. These are just a few of the inadequate adjectives that fail to describe Manuel DeLanda’s fantastically disarming and deeply funny films. Known today as an author, teacher, and philosopher, DeLanda’s iconic celluloid works remain among the most innovative, abrasive, and hypnotic films produced in the ‘70s and early ‘80s. Unique among the films of their era (or of any other for that matter), DeLanda’s movies have a highbrow philosophical tinge, lowbrow wit, and punk rock style. Radically conceived and frantically edited, DeLanda’s energetic, semiotic cinema earned him instant acclaim in the international experimental film world — and, raised in Mexico but transplanted to NYC, DeLanda rather amazingly created most of these films while still an undergraduate at the School for Visual Arts. Out of circulation for nearly two decades and newly restored by Anthology Film Archives from the best existing sources, these utterly distinctive films will undoubtedly re-arrange your synapses. John Klacsmann (of Anthology Film Archives) will be here to introduce the films!

Anthology Film Archives’ preservation of the films of Manuel DeLanda was generously supported by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the National Film Preservation Foundation.

Film scheduled:
- JUDGEMENT DAY (1983, 8 minutes, Super 8mm-to-16mm): Cockroaches meet their maker in the first installment of DeLanda’s incomplete “Jerry Falwell trilogy.”
- THE ITCH SCRATCH ITCH CYCLE (1976, 8 minutes, 16mm): A bickering couple unleash holy hell on each other in this deconstruction of the shot/countershot technique.
- MAGIC MUSHROOM MOUNTAIN MOVIE (1981, 10 minutes, Super 8mm-to-digital): Shot in 1973 but not edited until years later, this rarely-screen Jodorowsky-ian Mexican travelogue is surprisingly lovely and, for DeLanda, relatively restrained.
- INCONTINENCE: A DIARRHETIC FLOW OF MISMATCHES (1978, 18 minutes, 16mm): WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF goes gaga in this optically-printed masterpiece featuring a very surprise appearance by Professor Mamboozoo (artist Joe Coleman).
- ISMISM (1979, 8 minutes, Super8mm-to-16mm, screening on digital): “ISMISM documents my graffiti activities in New York (before switching to more obscene drawings on subway walls). The film was originally made as a class project for P. Adams Sitney. It has the form of a manifesto against the orthopedic power of language.” –Manuel DeLanda
- RAW NERVES: A LACANIAN THRILLER (1980, 30 minutes, 16mm): A noir mostly set in a bathroom stall and stairwell. A private dick trapped in a tight spot. A narrator searching for a way out of the story. Toilet humor and pulp fiction captured in colors like you’ve never seen, RAW NERVES is DeLanda’s most accomplished film.
