I Will Be Called Lucifer

I Will Be Called Lucifer (Filmmaker, Anthony Buchanan in person!!)

Through a searing mixture of myth, biography, docu-fable, collage and fantasy, Anthony Buchanan’s essay film is an homage to Kenneth Anger, to creative rebels and to the great poets of Hollywood. It’s a love letter from a younger filmmaker to a mentor converging the many lives of Lucifer with the story of filmmaker Kenneth Anger’s troubled production of LUCIFER RISING. Robert Oppenheimer, JFK, Charles Manson, Dennis Hopper, Marilyn Monroe, Bobby Beausoleil and others surface in an experimental film which explores the consequences of seeking truth in archetypal narratives.

RADICAL GERMAN CINEMA PT. 1: Harun Farocki

Introduced by German Film Scholar Annette Brauerhoch

Harun Farocki (1944-2014). Mr. Farocki made more than 100 films, many of them short experimental documentaries that explored contemporary life, and what he saw as its myriad depredations — war, imprisonment, surveillance, capitalism — through the visual stimuli that attend them. Ruminative, but with an undercurrent of urgency born of his longstanding social engagement, Mr. Farocki’s films sought to illuminate the ways that the technology of image-making is used to shape public ideology. Tonight we screen two of Farocki’s masterful late essay works: War at a Distance (2003) and Workers Leaving the Factory (1995).
