13 June - INTERNATIONAL
A gala coming out party for Darling International, the newest film by
M.M. Serra and Jenn Reeves. After touring the world (Sundance, Rotterdam,
Berlin) and the Greater Metropolitan Area, it's coming home to Ludlow
Street, just downstairs from the tenement chateau where it was filmed.
Serra and Jenn will be on hand with treats and cheap champagne, and an
assortment of their short films to accompany the lovely debutante, including
Soi Meme (Serra) and We Are Going Home (Reeves).
20 June - SURVEILLANCE
AND THE STATE
Aaron Scott (NYC) brings Big Brother to the LES; expect an evening of
"monitors" featuring paranoid fantasies of absolute, unmitigated totalitarian
control, industrial propoganda, occupation and administration of public
spaces by anonymous security forces, statistically-sound technologies
for predicting human tragedy, ruthless government intrusion on seemingly
insignificant events, complicit exhibitionists, real-life melodramatization
of the banal. Tapes will include The Franklin Report by Clint Bagwell,
Suicide Box by the Bureau of Inverse Technology, Untitled (E.W.) by Aaron
Scott, and Der Reise by Michael Kleir. "A glimpse of raw, human reality"
- A. Scott.
27 - A FILM IS A FILM IS A FILM
English filmmaker David Woods makes a special stop at the RBMC to present
two experimental documentaries made over the course of the last 30 years.
The first film, Turnip (1970), was made in New York and concerns a violent
childhood, and the second, Baby Home (1996), is a record of a home birth.
According to Mr. Woods these films make a make a "natural" pairing as
both have real-time soundtracks, and the image track bears contrasting
relationships to the sound material.
