PETER ROSE: Towards a 6th Dimensional Cine

Pneumenon

(Filmmaker Peter Rose in Person)

Co-Presented by the Hanson Film Institute

It is EV’s true honor to present an in-person screening of the visionary work of multimedia artist Peter Rose (Philadelphia) at EV. Drawing on his background in mathematics and physics, Peter Rose has been working for over 40 years with time, space, sound and light to conjure higher dimensions of vision and his work has been shown at major venues throughout the US and Europe. Rose will show a survey of his work to date: twenty-five screen multiple images that spatialize time; documents of video installations that play with appearance and reality, and investigations of novel forms of illumination, all culminating in the first display of Rose’s most recent experiments in Six-Dimensional video. 3D glasses will be provided!!

JIM COLBY’s Sonaural with filmmaker Patrick Cain + Altrice

ev sonaural image (1)

SONAURAL is the debut performance of an electronic music project by Tucson-based artist JAMES COLBY (Vox Urbana/New Doubt). Each composition is created entirely from field recordings collected in Tucson over the past 6 months and mangled into half-recognizable leftfield beats and drones. DC-based film artist PATRICK CAIN will induce synesthesia with accompanying live video manipulations, and the night will culminate with a DJ set from local producer legend ALTRICE. Come and dance to concrète wrangled directly from the concrete urban prairies of Tucson!

SISTERS’ SCIENCE FICTIONS: Irene Lusztig’s The Motherhood Archives

02 motherhoodarchiveheader

(Filmmaker, Irene Lusztig in person)

We are pleased to welcome the filmmaker Irene Lusztig (Santa Cruz) presenting her latest film, The Motherhood Archives. Archival montage, science fiction and homage to 1970s feminist filmmaking are woven together to form this haunting and lyrical essay film that excavates hidden histories of childbirth in the twentieth century. Assembling her extraordinary trove, including newly rediscovered Soviet and French childbirth material tracing the evolution of Lamaze, The Motherhood Archives inventively untangles the complex, sometimes surprising genealogies of maternal education. This extraordinary achievement illuminates our changing narratives of maternal success and failure while raising important questions about our social and historical constructions of motherhood.

Hanky Code: The Movie

hankycodeseptforweb

(Filmmaker Gentry McShane in person)

Before Internet dating and hookup apps, The Handkerchief code was largely used by gay men in the 1970’s to distinguish sexual preferences and fetishes in gay clubs and on the streets of places like San Francisco and New York. In Hanky Code: The Movie, Periwinkle Cinema, San Francisco’s queer experimental film collective brings Queer and Trans filmmakers across a spectrum of genres, styles, genders, and locations to dissect the code in this epic anthology feature comprised of 25 short films! Each filmmaker or filmmaking team tells a story of a different color/fetish of the code. Films range from narrative to experimental to erotic and animated, with many films redefining the traditional code with colors, patterns, and fetishes up to creative interpretation of the artist.

SAN FRANCISCO END OF DAYS: Other Cinema Tribute

12 OtherCinemaResized 12 ata 12 Tribulation06 12 TRIBULATION-99

After an epic run of over 30 years of experimental, agitprop and activist film & video, Other Cinema is being given the gentrifying jack-boot from their storefront on Valencia Street in San Francisco’s Mission district. Other Cinema is the passionate curatorial project of the genius found-footage essayist/provocateur filmmaker Craig Baldwin. With a sphere of creative influence that has extended across the world through his bricolage of DIY media forms and radical politics that have been the hallmark of OC’s amazing run of community-based media exhibition. Tonight at EV we will pay tribute to the internationally inspirational Other Cinema through the screening of Baldwin’s masterpiece Tribulation 99 and works by OC luminary such as Greta Snider, Vanessa Renwick, Gipps Chapman, Kerry Laitala, Bryan Boyce & more. Plus we hope to bring our EV audience a live video feed direct from the last OC show happening simultaneously in SF!
