- HOME ALONE WITH MR. GANZ
The long-awaited night out with one of the Beck's favorite incognito filmmakers.
Almost documentary, but with a streak of nasty that says, cynicism is
alive and well. You may have seen one or more of Ganz's films over the
last few years, but now we'll have the lot of the one ones we've found:
MUZAK (a profile of the Muzak corporation and its infernal machines),
HUBERT'S (the legendary 42nd st. flea circus), A TRIP THROUGH THE BROOKS'
HOME (condensed novels for the "working woman"), BOWERY MEN'S SHELTER,
HOUSEMOVING and PSYCHIC PARROT (only the producer, but you'll love 'em
anyway), and the infamous HONEYMOON HOTEL ("I've been taking pictures
of every corner of this room...."), and possibly more...
- THE ETERNAL RETURN
In honor of the upcoming Yuletide season the RBMC presents an evening
of films about birth, death, and whatever comes between. Films to include:
OVERTURE: NYITANY vs. ECROLOGY, AGING: IT'S LATER THAN YOU THINK!, FOXFIRE
- THE CURSE OF THE SEVEN JACKALS
Up from the deep-South, Christopher Jolly returns to NYC with his feature
THE CURSE OF THE SEVEN JACKALS. The ultimate "indie feature," Jolly shot
sound-on-film with a vintage Auricon, a la Andy Warhol. As for the plot,
well: "Thomas Bernard, a young man whose greatest passion is to visit
Egypt, volunteers to be a human guinea pig in a bizarre medical experiment
in which his blood is replaced with a synthetic substitute. While waiting
for the effects of the experiment to manifest themselves, he takes up
residence in a no-frills motel and soon befriends Helen, a chatty cleaning
woman with a voice like Edith "The Egg Lady" Massey. The two fill their
time with life's simple pleasures, like Karaoke and Bingo. All is well
until the synthetic blood slowly takes hold of Bernard." To be preceded
by Jolly's TOTAL FORCE: "Video based electonics tuned to musical frequencies
all within the range of human knowledge, processed and arranged for optimal
entertained value. Unplug your ears and unveil your eyes, cause' TOTAL
FORCE is gonna hypnotize.
- NO SHOW, IT'S CHRISTMAS. SORRY.
