Hanky Code: The Movie

(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!

KENNETH ANGER REDUX!

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.
