Subject: Los Angeles on Shifting Ground (off-site at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater)

los angeles on shifting ground
5/26/2017 - 8PM

This show will take place at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater, located at 1345 W. 1st St, Los Angeles, CA 90026.

Subject: Los Angeles on Shifting Ground is an evening that looks at L.A. as a site of natural and societal flux. With its earthquakes and mud slides, and its ability to rapidly remake itself, Los Angeles is a forgetful city; perhaps its only constant is its transformative potential.

The evening will examine the city’s habit of erasure, as well as forms of collective recall, through disaster footage, visualizations of local wind patterns, and documentation of lost neighborhoods and landmarks. Matt Yoka will present footage from his forthcoming documentary Whirlybird about legendary helicopter reporter Zoey Tarr, we will survey contemporary marketing schemes for “historic downtown,” and Thom Anderson will introduce Get Out of the Car, projected on 16mm, an treasure hunt through signage, hand-painted murals, and neon hieroglyphics. A dance and live sound performance will explore community erasure and its impact on the body. Plus much more and of course, puppets!

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me

fire walk with me 2
5/22/2017 - 7:30PM

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me rates as one of Lynch’s most shattering works, a true horror film that shocks and haunts the viewer long after the final frame. Following the secret, sordid life of golden girl Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) as she descends into drug-fueled madness due to years of abuse at the hands of her possibly possessed father (an incredible Ray Wise), the film eschews much of the show’s lighter touches for hysteria and terror – a choice that suits the dark roads leading to Laura’s inevitable outcome. Surrealistic flourishes abound, brought on in part by Laura’s chemically-induced mania but also as mythology elements, like the infamous Black Lodge – a disembodied location where strange characters deliver cryptic messages to future hero Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan). Aside from the cast regulars the film also features cameos from Lynch himself, crooner Chris Isaak and a particularly bizarre and wonderful turn from the late great David Bowie.

According to Lynch himself, a refresher-viewing of Fire Walk With Me is highly recommended before indulging in the long-awaited Twin Peaks Season 3…

Dir. David Lynch, 1992, 35mm, 135 min.

On Her Majesty's Secret Service

on her majesty's secret service
5/20/2017 - 9:30PM

Despite only choosing to play the role once, model-turned-actor George Lazenby made an indelible mark on the James Bond franchise in 1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, now largely considered one of the best of the ever-enduring blockbuster spy series. The Aussie used car salesman turned model was director Peter Hunt’s ultimate choice to succeed Bond originator Sean Connery – a risky proposition as Lazenby had not, until that point, acted in a film. The risk paid off handsomely – Lazenby brings a rugged physicality to the role, giving his all to some of the series’ most visceral action scenes, and handily holding his own against heavyweight co-stars Diana Rigg (as Bond’s only onscreen wife Tracy) and Telly Savalas (taking over the nemesis role of Blofeld).

Dir. Peter R. Hunt, 1969, DCP, 142 min.

Omar (with actor Waleed Zuaiter in person!)

omar
5/20/2017 - 7PM

Presented in conjunction with The Seventh Art Stand

Equal parts Shakespearean tragedy, romantic drama, and 70s paranoid thriller (think the darkest moments in Absence of Malice meet The Conversation with an undercurrent of Romeo and Juliet), this first-ever Palestinian nominee for the Best Foreign Language Oscar situates a universal story of love and struggle within the war-torn labyrinth of Israeli-occupied territory for a masterful exploration of trust – and, when that trust shatters, what drives us to seek revenge. The 440-mile long Israeli West Bank barrier stands as a physical metaphor for conflict in Abu-Assad’s undisputed masterpiece, beginning with the titular Omar defiantly unfettered as he scales the 26-foot tall obstacle fueled by the jetpack of his young, requited adoration for high school student Nadia – and concluding with the political, regional, and religious weight of a region and a new generation reminded of their place within a world much larger than themselves.

Dir. Hany Abu-Assad, 2013, DCP, 96 min.

THE SEVENTH ART STAND is a nationwide screening and discussion series presented by 50+ theaters, museums, and community centers in 25 states, as an act of cinematic solidarity against Islamophobia.

The Salesman

thesalesman
5/19/2017 - 7:30PM

Presented in conjunction with The Seventh Art Stand

With a set by DJ Carlos Niño!

When it was announced that The Salesman won Best Foreign Language Oscar back in February 2017, it was not helmer Asghar Farhadi who accepted the statue but a female member of the Iranian-American community, who clarified the filmmaker’s boycott of the ceremony as a protest of Trump’s travel ban. “I believe,” Farhadi said in a statement, “that the similarities among the human beings on this earth and its various lands… far outweigh their differences.” Expect nothing short of this same empathy echoing throughout this subtle yet engrossing observation of suffering by way of a whodunit, set in present day Iran. Fans of the construct of All About My Mother will enjoy a similar peek into the back – and on-stage lives of actors as a Tehran-based troupe rehearses and stages Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman – albeit divergent from Almodovar’s in its rooted neorealism, and naturally closer in tone to Farhadi’s previous A Separation (2012). This play-within-a-film offers parallel themes of humiliation (you’ll recognize our Willy Loman as soon as you meet him) and family trauma as the walls literally crumble around seemingly sound relationships.

Dir. Asghar Farhadi, 2016, DCP, 125 min.

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

dr strangelove1
5/18/2017 - 7:30PM

“The Bomb overshadowed global politics. It was a kind of ultimate hole card in a game where the stakes were life on earth. Then Kubrick’s film opened with the force of a bucketful of cold water, right in the face.” – Roger Ebert

Dr. Strangelove arrived three years after Joseph Heller’s Catch-22: two works that cleaved a bold path of satire and savagery through the Cold War thicket of the early 1960′s. From the “you can’t fight in the War Room” War Room to the not-at-all-subtle phallic cigar chomping military officers, Strangelove skewers with pure wit until arriving at the only logical conclusion: nuclear annihilation (though, in the context of the movie, even that is pretty funny). With one of cinema’s all-time greats in the director’s chair, and a lineup that included Peter Sellers, Sterling Hayden, Terry Southern, and Slim Pickens, Strangelove is one of those rare moments in movie-culture when, to put it bluntly, the stars aligned.

Dir. Stanley Kubrick, 1964, DCP, 94min

A Tribute to George Lazenby: Becoming Bond (w/ director Josh Greenbaum, Josh Lawson & George Lazenby in person!) + On Her Majesty's Secret Service

george lazenby
5/17/2017 - 7:30PM

George Lazenby’s crafty road to the role of James Bond – from used car salesman to model to movie superspy – is a fascinating tale of swinging 60′s excess, brought to vivid life in Josh Greenbaum’s documentary/dramatization, Becoming Bond. Using an interview with the still dashing and effortlessly charming Lazenby intercut with cleverly staged reenactments, Greenbaum lovingly follows the one-off Bond’s self-effacing, honest and often debauched account of how he bluffed his way into cinema’s most coveted male fantasy. It’s alternately astounding, hilarious and even deeply moving, and the reenactments are boosted by the help of some fun celebrity cameos, including Dana Carvey, Jane Seymour (herself a former Bond girl), Jeff Garlin, and Jake Johnson. Despite choosing to play the role only once, Lazenby made an indelible mark on the Bond franchise in his sole turn in the tux, 1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service – now largely considered one of the best of the ever-enduring blockbuster spy series. As director Peter Hunt’s ultimate choice to succeed Bond originator Sean Connery, Lazenby was a risky proposition as he had not, until that point, acted in a film. The risk paid off handsomely – the Aussie hunk brings a rugged physicality to the role, giving his all to visceral action scenes and handily holding his own against heavyweight co-stars Diana Rigg (as Bond’s only onscreen wife Tracy) and Telly Savalas (taking over the nemesis role of Blofeld). Come shake – not stir – a martini and celebrate with the Bond who only lived once, George Lazenby himself!

Becoming Bond, dir. Josh Greenbaum, 2017, DCP, 92 min.
On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, dir. Peter R. Hunt, 1969, DCP, 142 min.

Becoming Bond is a Hulu Original Documentary and will available on Hulu on May 20th.

Born in Flames

tumblr_ml8zghrlik1qc2cbbo1_500
5/15/2017 - 7:30PM

Preserved by Anthology Film Archives with restoration funding by The Hollywood Foreign Press Association and The Film Foundation.

On the tail end of one revolution and the eve of the next, two feminist pirate radio stations (“Radio Ragazza” and “Phoenix Radio”) broadcast commentary on the failing socialist state from a future utopian/dystopian New York, where the dream of the left’s takeover has come and gone. Lizzie Borden’s stellar and ferociously beloved documentary-style sci-fi social drama, restored by Anthology Film Archives, envisions an imagined future that upon contemporary viewing looks almost—but not quite—like the past, eerily affecting even beyond its time-capsule appeal. Circling around issues of race, gender, and class that apparently never get old, Born In Flames is revolutionary beyond its political narrative. Shot on a shoestring over a period of five years, using non-actors and little in the way of an advance script, it feels like a feat, carried to completion by the sheer force of ideas and passion.

Dir. Lizzie Borden, 1983, 35mm, 80 min.

Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles

jeanne dielman
5/14/2017 - 6PM

When Chantal Akerman presented Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles at the Cannes Film Festival in 1975, she was only 25 (she was 24 when she directed it). The film, which chronicles a few days in the life of Dielman: a single mother and widow, played by Delphine Seyrig, is now understood to be a behemoth in the history of feminist filmmaking. Brilliantly adopting the meditative long-takes of structuralist cinema found in the experimental, non-narrative works of directors such as Michael Snow, Akerman uses these techniques to examine the alienation of our housewife protagonist. In stunning wide shots and real time, we observe the repetitive choreographies of Jeanne’s life: peeling potatoes, sponging her body, turning tricks in the afternoon. But all that remains unvoiced cannot be outrun, and her perfectly executed daily routines start to falter. The timing falls off. A coil starts to glow.

Deliberate and frugal, but also symphonic, Jeanne Dielman was made by a young woman but with all the gravity of an examined life, and raised many of the questions that remain prescient about the female voice, concealed labor, and the nature of care.

Dir. Chantal Akerman, 1975, DCP, 201 min.

Cinefamily Public Access Mixtape

tapesandtapesfrankpacholski
5/13/2017 - 9PM

The people have spoken — and what they’re saying is weird! Once upon a time, before YouTube, remote control renegades itching to scratch the underbelly of the idiot box needed to look no further than their local listings for those two hallowed words — “public access” — to know that their cable bill dollars were hard at work. Join us for one of our signature Cinefamily mixes, featuring the titans of the community-based tube: expect potty-mouthed psychics, lip-synching divas, confessional call-in chaos, psychedelic pranksters, greenscreen fallout, and, of course, clinically insane people with their pets — all getting down and doing their thing in our living room. Scrambling cable boxes and brains alike, these extraordinary ordinary people made legendary non-commercial television in the untamed wilderness of the airwaves. Who said the FCC never did you any favors?

Here Come the Videofreex (with director Jon Nealon & Videofreex member Skip Blumberg in person!)

-Do It In the Road
5/13/2017 - 6PM

When Sony introduced the Portapak camera in 1967, suddenly, mobile, amateur video recording was possible. Early adopters Parry Teasdale and David Cort met via the magnetism of their gear at Woodstock and eventually the “Videofreex” collective was born. Part journalistic team – the group briefly worked for CBS – part interventionist-documentarians, these artists/activists captured the marches and political movements of the time, outside of the narrow world of network TV. Filmmakers Jon Nealon and Jenny Raskin’s portrait of the group – featuring ample archival footage and interviews – zeroes in on a pre-iPhone media moment that for some, is now almost inconceivable. Join us in celebrating this pioneering guerilla TV with filmmaker Jon Nealon and Videofreex member Skip Blumberg in person.

Dirs. Jon Nealon & Jenny Raskin, 2015, DCP, 79 min.

Subject: Los Angeles Lovers (off-site at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater)

los angeles lovers
5/12/2017 - 8PM

This show will take place at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater, located at 1345 W. 1st St, Los Angeles, CA 90026.

Legendary LA personality (and unofficial mascot) Angelyne invites all to the third installment, Subject: Los Angeles Lovers, an evening devoted to the highly curious individuals who have surveyed, catalogued, and explored the city in service of making it more intelligible to others.

Focusing on both enthusiastic, visionary visitors and faithful locals with encyclopedic knowledge of architecture and lore, the event will consider different approaches to navigating and sharing the complex geography and culture of Los Angeles. Featuring LA-centric selections from Huell Howser’s down-home show California’s Gold, the fun-loving postmodernity of Reyner Banham Loves Los Angeles, a live bus tour from LA’s most erudite tourist outfit, Esotouric, plus much more–and of course, puppets!

Subject: Los Angeles was co-curated by Veggie Cloud’s Courtney Stephens and Kate Wolf, and the UCLA Film and Television Archive’s KJ Relth. Special thanks to the Prelinger Archives, Russell M. Saunders Film Collection, Pat Rocco, and Mark Quigley and Todd Wiener of the UCLA Film & Television Archive.

Beatriz at Dinner (Free sneak peek with director Miguel Arteta & cast in person!)

Beatriz at Dinner
5/10/2017 - 7:30PM

Presented by Friends of Cinefamily

Director (and Cinefamily member!) Miguel Arteta joins us for a free sneak peek of his new film, Beatriz at Dinner, with cast members Amy Landecker, John Early, Jay Duplass, and David Warshofsky in person!

“How does a person committed to healing — to being principled, empathetic, and good — handle first contact with the devils who think nothing of destroying our world?”
- Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice

A “comedy” of manners for our times, the tightly constructed and expertly penned (by Mike White) Beatriz at Dinner is a reminder that above all else, the wealthiest and most privileged among us take for granted their purchased privacy. Beatriz (Salma Hayek) is a Mexican-American woman who works as a massage therapist and healer. When circumstances lead to her being invited/trapped for dinner at the Californian McMansion of a client, she accepts with apology and gratitude. Throw in a Trumpy CEO and some culturally-normalized corporate evil, and we’re off – ricocheting between comedy and drama, in the grand tradition of the “we’re-all-trapped-under-this-roof” film tradition, that is.

Dir. Miguel Arteta, 2017, DCP, 83 min.

Another Evil (w/ director Carson Mell & cast in person!)

another evil
5/5/2017 - 10:30PM

Co-presented by Friday Night Frights

Director Carson Mell and cast members Steve Zissis, Mark Proksch, and Dax Flame in person! Film will be followed by a Q&A moderated by Zach Woods.

Let’s take everything we know about the haunted vacation house story (hip couple retreats toward luxe isolation, eschewing high-demand jobs for pine-soaked serenity and the presence of lingering dead, yada yada), and throw it out the damn(ed) window. There’s nothing that could prepare us for first-time feature writer/director Carson D. Mell’s what-the-fuckomedy Another Evil, as architectural photography and literary wit wear away to reveal a taut and disturbing nexus of fear; and when Dan (Steve Zissis) and his arty nuclear family employ a decorated “ghost assassin” to purify their mountain hideaway from pesky spooks, Dan soon finds he may be beholden to more than just what goes bump in the night.

Dir. Carson D. Mell, 2016, DCP, 90 min.
