NEW WORKS FROM THE ECHO PARK FILM CENTER

In attendance: Filmmakers & EPFC Founders Paolo Davanzo and Lisa Marr

FREE!

In recognition of their countless hours as the Center’s educators, programmers, projectionists and facilitators, Echo Park Film Center Co-op members were commissioned to make new experimental lens-based works exploring their relationships to Los Angeles. Coming from all walks of life, Co-op members include both experienced and self-taught filmmakers, queer identifying filmmakers, artists of color, art school graduates, and EPFC youth film program alumni.

++++++++
Work to show:

Quantum Identity Politics // Miko Revereza // Video // 10 min.
To be an undocumented immigrant in America is a performance. I am now exhausted of this performance. As long as documentation is used to exclude, deport, and incarcerate people by race and class lines, then our role as artists and thinkers is to decode, reconfigure, and subvert documents as conceptual play objects.

The Burning of Los Angeles // Cosmo Segurson // 16mm transferred to video // 4 min.
An interpretation of a painting described in Nathaniel West's «The Day of the Locust» from 1939.

From Brooklyn to Broadway // Brenda Contreras // Video // 7 min.
The untold collection of short, bizarre narratives.

Angelus Novus // Gina Marie Napolitan // 16mm loop with 35 mm slides transferred to video // 6 min.
A hopscotch through our historical, geographical, and cultured memory. Los Angeles as a place of wilderness up-ended by human settlement, and subsequently, a place of human settlement up-ended by nature time and again. “This storm is what we call progress.”

A Beautiful Tragedy // Sharmaine Starks // Video // 15 min.
Inspired by the numerous candle light vigils that fill the alleys, parking lots and street corners of Compton, Watts and South Central LA.

Palimpsest // Penelope Uribe-Abee // Super 8 transferred to video // 3 min.
A look into the spiritual and phantasmic effects that gentrification has an identity, self and the landscapes that these ontological frameworks spring from.

Beauties // Lisa Marr // Super 8 transferred to video // 10 min.
A cinematic mash note to the Mack Sennett Bathing Girls.

Worlds Below, Or: Los Angeles Breaks Its Mother’s Back // Emett Casey // 16mm // 7 min.
A rhythmic study of cracks in Los Angeles sidewalks, and their relationship to free root structures.

Avanti Popolo (People Move Forward) // Paolo Davanzo // 16mm Dual Projection // 3 min.
A journey through the city on my bicycle shot on 16mm film and hand-processed. A look at the rapid changes happening in Los Angeles and a hope to reclaim the fragments of community life that are being taken away from us.

This program has been made possible by a grant from the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts.

Launched in June of last year, the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts Artist Project Grants seek to further Mike Kelley’s philanthropic work and honor his legacy by supporting innovative projects with visual artists at L.A. nonprofit institutions and organizations. The goal is to benefit both visual artists and arts organizations alike and to support compelling and inventive projects in any medium, particularly work that is under-known, or has proven difficult to make or to fund.
