- TRIBUTE TO PIERRE CLEMENTI (9.28.1942-12.28.1999)
In honor and fond memory of the recently deceased Pierre Clementi, the RBMC presents NECROPOLIS (1970) directed by Franco Brocani. James Dean's sallow-faced evil twin, Clementi was the fly on the nose of many artful European productions: his ravishing of Catherine Deneuve in Bunuel's Belle de Jour and Doppelganger double-up in Bertolucci's PARTNER stand out in my mind, anyway. One of Clementi's lesser known, but no less fascinating efforts, NECROPOLIS somehow seems an apropos eulogy for a rather morbid fellow.
- M. STONE'S TRAVELING SUPER-8 CIRCUS
Melinda Stone (SF), 8mm impresario and amateur film scholar comes to town to present a program of films culled from the Super-8 festival she organizes in San Francisco. Bound to be a whiz-bang selection of great films, you sure don't want to miss this! More info to come, really.
- RBMC GOES TO BARD COLLEGE (IE NO SHOW!!)
Stan Brakhage will be holding court tonight at Bard College, presenting a new film and receiving an "honorary degree." You can't expect us to miss that.
All programs begin at 9pm
(or thereabouts) on Tuesdays at Collective
