Co-presented by Los Angeles Filmforum

You may not know his name, but chances are you’re already a huge fan of Pablo Ferro’s work. Proclaimed a genius by the likes of Stanley Kubrick, Hal Ashby and Jonathan Demme, Pablo’s career as a movie title sequence designer has brought him mega-accolades within the world of film production, and his large and varied body of work brought titles into the modern era with a style and approach that still ripples through contemporary cinema. From the moving collage of The Thomas Crown Affair to his trademark hand-drawn lettering for Dr. Strangelove, Pablo Ferro is a world-class designer of the highest order. Plus, Pablo also created some of cinema’s most memorable trailers of all time, such as the mindbending promos for A Clockwork Orange and Zardoz! We are delighted to host an entire evening devoted to Pablo’s legacy and historic portfolio — with the man, the myth, the master himself in attendance. Join us for a evening of impossibly cool titles, trailers, rare animations and unscreened shorts, all spliced together by an extended Q&A with Pablo!

Fassbinder's "World On A Wire" (brand-new HD restoration!)

An encore show of the 1973 TV miniseries!
worldonawire_newsite
9/26/2011 - 7:30PM

“A textbook example of a film that was ahead of its time … a movie that anticipates Blade Runner in its meditation on artificial and human intelligence and The Matrix in its conception of reality as a computer-generated illusion.” – Dennis Lim, The New York Times

A dystopic science-fiction epic, World on a Wire is German wunderkind Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s gloriously cracked, boundlessly inventive 1973 take on future paranoia. With dashes of Kubrick, Vonnegut, and Dick, but a flavor entirely and unmistakably his own, this fascinating four-hour film (originally shown as a two-part miniseries on German television) tells the noir-spiked tale of reluctant action hero Fred Stiller (Klaus Lowitsch, who also starred in Fassbinder’s WWII masterpiece The Marriage of Maria Braun), a cybernetics engineer who uncovers a massive corporate and governmental conspiracy. At risk? Our entire (virtual) reality as we know it. This long-unseen cinematic labyrinth is a satiric and surreal look at the weird world of tomorrow from one of cinema’s kinkiest geniuses.
Dir. Rainer Werner Fassbinder, 1973, HD presentation, 212 min.

“I enjoy it for being one of the purest, least sentimental, most extended and elaborate expression of Spielberg’s graphic talent ever put on celluloid.” — Critic After Dark

9/21/2011 - 8PM
Co-presented by Cinespia

The Kaleidoscopic Universe of Frank Mouris (on 35mm & 16mm!) – 8:00pm
Every so often, a film comes across your field of vision that completely bowls you over, making your head reel for days afterwards while filling you with the intense motivation to get out there and truly experience life. Frank Mouris’s Frank Film has this power. Winner of the 1974 Oscar for Best Animated Short Film, it’s comprised of 11,000 photographic images that tell the chronological story of Mouris’s life, sequenced in a rapid-fire explosion of color and restless, unstoppable movement; as the film gets wilder over its brief minutes, it transcends autobiography to become a stirring summation of our collective human experience. Throughout his career, Frank and his wife Caroline have made several other seminal, deeply moving works that equal Frank Film in their candor and rich visual palate; join us for 16mm & 35mm screenings of not only Frank Film, but Coney, Frankly Caroline, Impasse and Screen Test as well! These five films have not been screened in the U.S. all together in one program since 1980, which makes this show genuinely a one-of-a-kind event!

La La, Making It In L.A., plus Julia Holter live! – 9:30pm
After intermission, first up is a live music set by Julia Holter! The hypnotic and beautiful music of Julia is nothing short of enchanting, and we can’t recommend her enough. You may have caught her playing around town as a solo artist, or heard her play here at Cinefamily with Linda Perhacs. Her first LP has just been released, and they’ve been playing it non-stop at Cinespia HQ all week!

“A hip, flip, manic and depressive look at fifty-five very outgoing introspectors who came to the pop cultural capital of the United States to make it big with a capital L and a capital A.” — Tom Shales, Washington Post

For the special bonus feature after Julia’s live set, we’ve got an ultra-rare Frank Mouris film that has all the right elements to make you salivate: a) dozens of Hollywood wannabes doing gossipy confessional talking-head interviews directly into the camera, Errol Morris-style, about lessons learned in the acting biz: the casting couch, how to play the game, how to change you name; b) recognizable now-famous faces mixed in with the obscure never-has-beens; c) animated sequences; and d) time-lapse photography of late-’70s Los Angeles! Don’t you want to see this long-lost, juicy, crazy-sounding documentary funded by PBS, all backed by music from some of the aspiring musicians in the film??

A Tribute To The Gong Show (feat. The Gong Show Movie & live Q&A w/ Jaye P. Morgan and Arte Johnson!!)

A night of our favorite insane Gong Show memories!
gongshow_newsite
9/20/2011 - 8PM

A bold statement, but it’s true: “The Gong Show” is one of the most monumental achievements in the history of broadcast television. No other single program we can think of even comes close to matching its level of joviality, moment-by-moment entertainment value — and stratospheric total madness. Like one giant conga line of inspired manic (and probably drunken) flapdoodle, “The Gong Show” appeared in a post-Watergate era when our country desperately needed a few laughs, and for almost five dizzying years, it supplied the American public with enough glorious vaudevillian-talent-show-on-acid idiocy to last several lifetimes. It’s a truly sad fact that “Gong Show” reruns are completely non-existent in our time, so we’re remedying it by bringing you a big fat slate of Cinefamily’s most favorite “Gong Show” acts, guest hosts, musical numbers and, perhaps best of all, moments of inspired lunacy from show host Chuck Barris. Then, it’s time for an ultra-rare 35mm screening of The Gong Show Movie: the head-shaking 1980 feature film swansong (co-written and partially directed by counterculture legend Robert Downey, Sr.) that takes a peek behind the stage door curtain, to reveal both “too hot for TV” uncensored show outtakes and Chuckie Baby’s groovy existential crisis! C’mon down for more sssssssssstuff! Schedules permitting, classic Gong Show guest judges Jaye P. Morgan and Arte Johnson will be here for a live Q&A to share some of their zaniest Gong Show memories!

FREE SNEAK PREVIEW: The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 (L.A. premiere!)

A treasure trove of previously unseen 16mm history!

“Nothing short of a revelation.” — Amy Taubin, Film Comment

The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 mobilizes a treasure trove of 16mm material shot by Swedish journalists who came to the US drawn by stories of urban unrest and revolution. Gaining access to many of the leaders of the Black Power Movement — Stokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, Angela Davis and Eldridge Cleaver among them — the filmmakers captured them in intimate moments and remarkably unguarded interviews. Thirty years later, this incredible collection was found languishing in the basement of the Swedish National Broadcast Company. Director Göran Olsson and co-producer Danny Glover bring this footage to light in a mosaic of images, music and narration chronicling the evolution one of our nation’s most indelible turning points, the Black Power movement. Music by Questlove and Om’Mas Keith, as well as commentary from prominent African-American artists and activists who were influenced by the struggle (including Erykah Badu, Harry Belafonte, Talib Kweli, and Melvin Van Peebles) gives this historical footage a fresh, contemporary resonance, and makes the film an exhilarating, unprecedented account of an American revolution.
Dir. Göran Olsson, 2011, HDCAM, 100 min.

If you’re unable to come to this sneak preview, The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 opens at the NuArt on Friday, September 23rd!

It's A Double Feature, Charlie Brown! (BOTH FEATURE FILMS ON 35MM!)

Two classic feature film moments in animation history!
charliebrown_newsite
9/11/2011 - 6:30PM

You may have seen them on coffee mugs, cartoon strips, TV shows and books, but were you aware that there were four theatrically released animated Peanuts features? If you’re a fan, then seeing these films on 35mm is the ultimate Charlie Brown experience. Whether you were a shy bookworm, a rough ‘n tumble sport, a precocious performer, a round-the-clock gamer, a proud overachiever or a ramshackle goof, one thing remains a universal constant about all our childhoods — we were all touched by Charlie Brown and the Peanuts crew. More so than the many half-hour network specials, the four Peanuts feature films offer the Charles Schultz-created gang the appropriate space to breathe, and for us, the ample opportunity to fall in love with them anew. Join us for two of these classic moments in animation history! DISCLAIMER: if this double feature doesn’t put a smile on your face, we might have to ask you to leave the premises. Titles to be announced at showtime!

King of the Hill (Steven Soderbergh & cast members in person!)

Steven Soderbergh in person for a post-film Q&A!
kingofthehill_newsite
9/10/2011 - 7PM

Steven Soderbergh followed up his incendiary debut sex, lies and videotape and the admirable weirdness of 1991’s Kafka with this subtly strange, evocative Depression-era drama about a boy (played by future heartthrob Jesse Bradford) slowly forced to fend for himself. Confined to a scuzzy Midwestern hotel, bright and resourceful Aaron forges precarious connections with the colorful transients who occupy his accidental home. With systematic momentum, Soderbergh removes these parental surrogates (played memorably by Spalding Gray, Karen Allen, Adrien Brody, and Katherine Heigl) from the boy’s environment, one by one, resulting in an near-absurdist evocation of Aaron’s mounting isolation. Stylish and powerful, King of the Hill may be Soderbergh’s most underrated film, and is clearly one of his best. Schedule permitting, Steven Soderbergh and co-stars Jesse Bradford & Amber Benson will be here at the Cinefamily for a Q&A after the film!
Dir. Steven Soderbergh, 1993, 35mm, 109 min.

The Five Minutes Game, Jr.: All Insane Kids' Films Edition!

A new twist on a Cinefamily tradition!
5minutesgame_newsite
9/5/2011 - 6PM

NOTE: The films we’ll be showing in this show are too mind-warping, eyeball-searing and just plain freaky for tykes and tots. Hell, we’re not even sure it’s all safe enough for ADULT eyes — so we recommend that children under 16 do not attend this event.

Summer’s around the corner, and you know how we here at the Cinefamily love two things in tandem: busting out the patio grill, and The Five Minutes Game. What’s all this about a game, you ask? We’re firm believers in “Every movie is interesting for at least its first five minutes”, those fascinating moments when you’re still entering the new world a film presents you, and trying to figure out what the hell’s going on. What we’re gonna do is choose fifteen movies you’ve likely never seen before (with most, if not all the films unavailable on DVD), line ‘em up, and only show you the first five minutes of each, not counting their opening credits. After all that, you, the audience, gets to vote on which film out of the fifteen we all then watch in its entirety. Since we’ve kicked off the Five Minutes Game a few years ago, we’ve had a total blast bringing to you giant swathes of mind-boggling movie choices, but this time around, we thought we’d shake it all up a bit — so for this Labor Day’s installment, it’s all kids’ films, all the time! In keeping with September’s theme, we’ve got a slate of fifteen impossibly warped pieces of childrens’ entertainment for you to choose from. So, bring something to cook on our grill, and let’s get started!

"Good Burger" Party & BBQ (Kel Mitchell in person!)

The greatest 80s movie of the mid-90s!
goodburger2_newsite
9/4/2011 - 6PM

Would you like a little Good Burger with your Good Burger? Then this is your night, ‘cause we’re watching the single greatest ‘80s movie made in the mid-’90s, and serving it up with a bounty of ground beef on the side at our all-nite back patio Burger Bar — seriously, we’re serving burgers all night! Two zany teens (Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell, of Nickelodeon’s “All That” and ”Kenan And Kel”) take summer jobs at a small independent burger joint and suddenly they find themselves trying to save their thriving mom-and-pop restaurant from the encroachment of the evil corporate Mondo Burger! Of course, outrageous hijinks ensue, including spy maneuvers, insane asylum breakouts, and transvestitism — all in a film produced by a childrens’ cable network. Whaaa? YEEEAAHHH!!! Honestly, this movie is waaayyy better than it needs to be, delivering at fast food pace an endless array of genuinely brilliant sight gags and unforgettable goofball characters. If you’re a fan of laughing and/or cheeseburgers, this is a show you are NOT ALLOWED TO MISS! Good Burger star Kel Mitchell will be here for a Q&A after the film!

A Horrible Way To Die (cast & crew in person!)

A sneak peek at a unique horror hybrid!
horriblewaytodie_newsite
9/3/2011 - 7PM

“Director Adam Wingard’s award-winning indie is perhaps the best portrait of a serial killer since, well, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.” — FEARnet

The 21st-century indie film resurgence has been big on both the horror film and the intimate, character-driven “mumblecore” sub-genre; A Horrible Way To Die, the brand-new festival hit directed by Adam Wingard (and co-starring indie stalwart Joe Swanberg), breathes fantastic life into an exciting cross-pollination: mumblegore. The film follows a former alcoholic re-entering the dating world after a trying time with her ex — a fellow who just happens to have been a notorious mass murderer that’s just escaped police custody. Wingard smartly turns the serial killer genre on its head by paying the same attention to detail in scenes of domesticity as he does to the moments of nervous terror; the film’s dating scenes are treated as they would be if this was Half Nelson, in a naturalistic attempt to explore the characters’ very real emotional world. Be one of the very first to catch this unique horror hybrid! Q&A with director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett to follow after the screening!
Dir. Adam Wingard, 2011, 85 min.
