 HARUN FAROCKI PROGRAM 6: HOW TO LIVE IN THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY
  HOW TO LIVE IN THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY / LEBEN – BRD 1990, 83
  minutes, 16mm. "A mordantly comic montage of short scenes taken from 32
  instructional classes, as well as therapy and test sessions. The film
  alternates between two kinds of activity: simulations and exercises
  carried out by human beings (learning about everything from child care
  to striptease to war to sales techniques to auto safety) and products
  being tested without visible human intervention. … The thin line
  separating socialization from indoctrination is repeatedly traversed –
  and the implication is that while diverse appliances are being tested
  for human use, humans are being trained and tested so they can aspire to
  the performance level of appliances." –Jonathan Rosenbaum, CHICAGO
  READER

 IN COMPARISON
  IN COMPARISON / ZUM VERGLEICH 2009, 61 minutes, 16mm. For his most
  recent film, Farocki observes the process of manufacturing bricks, in
  various cultures, and across different modes and scales of production.
  "For IN COMPARISON, I wanted to make a film about concomitance, and
  about contemporary production on a range of different technical levels.
  So I looked for an object that had not changed too much in the past few
  thousand years. This could have been a shoe or a knife, but a brick
  becomes part of a building and therefore part of our environment. So the
  brick appears as something of a poetic object. I follow its mode of
  creation and use in Africa, India, and Europe." –H.F.

9:00 pm, 32 2nd Avenue

 HARUN FAROCKI PROGRAM 9
  THE APPEARANCE / DER AUFTRITT 1996, 40 minutes, video. "Farocki once
  again takes us into the world of advertising. An advertising agency has
  to pitch a marketing concept to an optician's consortium, represented by
  the manager who is the first to see the campaign. The logo submitted,
  'Eyedentity', is examined from every angle: it must simultaneously
  express both the company's dynamism and its reliability! A fascinating,
  dispassionate glimpse behind closed doors, where every detail is
  dramatized to win that lucrative contract." –Jörg Becker & THE INTERVIEW
  / DIE BEWERBUNG 1997, 58 minutes, video. "In the summer of 1996, we
  filmed application training courses in which one learns how to apply for
  a job. School drop-outs, university graduates, people who have been
  retrained, the long-term unemployed, recovered drug addicts, and
  mid-level managers – all of them are supposed to learn how to market and
  sell themselves, a skill to which the term 'self management' is applied.
  The self is perhaps nothing more than a metaphysical hook from which to
  hang a social identity." –H.F.

  ideological, not sexual content). ALSO: Still making headlines, Steve
  Jobs is the addressee in Herman Asselberghs' Dear Steve, a trenchant
  analysis of the "new hegemony" of new media, whilst we witness the
  disassembly of one of Jobs' laptops! AND Sarah Christman's Dear Bill,
  emailed to—you guessed it—Bill Gates, taken to task for his
  less-than-accessible archival empire. PLUS Greg Berger's inspirational
  interview with a Cairo blogger/activist, Egypt: How We Did It; Julian
  Assange in a WikiLeaks infomercial; and an open letter from the
  hactivist group, Anonymous. Come early for cheap spiked coffee and
  Andrew Wilson's Global Countdown.

 CREATORS OF THE SHOPPING WORLDS
  THE CREATORS OF THE SHOPPING WORLDS / DIE SCHÖPFER DER EINKAUFSWELTEN
  2001, 72 minutes, video. "Everyone is familiar with this experience [of
  shopping] and knows what a mall looks like. This self-evident phenomenon
  is, however, the result of a highly complex process. The designing of
  shopping malls is overseen by an army of planners, managers and
  scientists. … Farocki shows how mall producers look at malls when they
  want to find out, for example, how passers-by move, where they stop and
  where they reach for an article. He adds these images to the everyday
  ones – and gives them a magical charge." –Antje Ehmann

 HARUN FAROCKI PROGRAM 11
  WHAT'S UP? / WAS IST LOS? 1991, 60 minutes, 16mm. "How a look can be
  turned toward its goal by grasping and measuring its covetousness is
  shown in an exemplary fashion in WHAT'S UP? in a motif depicting a
  postcard of a painting by Titian in an eye-mark recorder. Elsewhere
  topographical test images of the human brain record stimulus-response
  patterns during visual trials by measuring brainwaves (calibration
  curves). Research on the effectiveness of advertising investigates the
  question of what advertisements affect what regions of the brain, what
  scenes 'work' – images for an 'inward' colonization of the human body,
  at once a commodity and a market." –Jörg Becker & RESPITE / AUFSCHUB
  2007, 40 minutes, video, silent. Resurrects footage shot by Rudolf
  Breslauer, an inmate of a Dutch transit camp for Jews during WWII. The
  images we see of incoming and outgoing trains, prisoners being
  processed, and daily camp life are set to Farocki's silent intertitle
  commentary.

 HARUN FAROCKI PROGRAM 12
  PRISON IMAGES / GEFÄNGNISBILDER 2000, 60 minutes, video. "A film
  composed of images from prisons. Quotes from fiction films and
  documentaries as well as footage from surveillance cameras. A look at
  the new control technologies, at personal identification devices,
  electronic ankle bracelets, electronic tracking devices. The cinema has
  always been attracted to prisons." –H.F. & NOTHING VENTURED / NICHT OHNE
  RISIKO 2004, 50 minutes, video. The film follows the negotiations
  between a mid-sized company and a venture capital firm as the company
  looks for capital to start production on its invention. Farocki limits
  himself to observing events without comment. It's a microscopic look at
  one cell of today's economy, an ethnographic portrait of a commonplace
  business dealing.

 ANIMATION OF THE UNCONSCIOUSNESS: CALARTS AND THE TEACHINGS OF JULES
 ENGEL
  Jack H. Skirball Series $10 [students $8, CalArts $5] Presented as part
  of Pacific Standard Time and co-presented with Los Angeles
  Filmforum.Founded and directed by Jules Engel (1909–2003), the CalArts
  Film Graphics Program (later called "Experimental Animation") sought to
  push the boundaries of animation. Through his teaching, and the example
  of his own work, Engel fostered the emergence of a new form of
  animation—freewheeling, transgressive, and imaginative. What happens
  when an animator follows a line, a patch of color, or a shape into the
  unconscious? What wild images would emerge; how could one image lead to
  another? What can we learn about art and the human condition from these
  brave forays into the unknown depths of the mind? Such were the
  questions posed by Engel's own films—Shapes and Gestures (1976), Wet
  Paint (1977), Hors d'oeuvre (1978)—and by the students carrying his
  legacy: Kathy Rose (Mirror People, 1974), Adam Beckett (Flesh Flows,
  1974), Dennis Pies/Sky David (Aura-Corona, 1974), Henry Selick (Phases,
  1978), Lisze Bechtold (Moon Breath Beat, 1980), and others. In person:
  Christine Panushka, Dennis Pies, Lisze Bechtold Curated by Christine
  Panushka. Part of the series Alternative Projections: Experimental Film
  in Los Angeles, 1945-1980, organized by Los Angeles Filmforum. Presented
  as part of Pacific Standard Time. This unprecedented collaboration,
  initiated by the Getty, brings together more than 60 cultural
  institutions from across Southern California for six months beginning
  October 2011 to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene.
  Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty. The presenting
  sponsor is Bank of America. "Jules Engel's work speaks for itself.
  Direct and lucid, it requires no paraphrase. The language, which is
  universal… comes from the center of his being." —Lucretia Cole

 FIXC PROGRAM 1 
  nthology hosts the Helsinki-based cooperative FixC for several programs
  of experimental films and videos. In psychology 'fixation' means the
  state wherein the individual develops obsessions in relation to somebody
  or something. It can also mean gestures like maintaining one's gaze in a
  constant direction, repetition, and/or rituals. The "Fixation" screening
  is a brief journey through the diverse worlds of the moving image. FixC
  is an independent artist cooperative, which was launched to generate,
  distribute, and promote video art, media art, and experimental cinema,
  and to produce curated touring exhibitions and screenings. For more
  info, please visit: www.fixc.fi Unless otherwise noted, all works were

  PROGRAM 2: Seppo Renvall EESTAAS 2008, 53 minutes, 16mm-to-video.
  'Eestaas' means back-and-forth in Finnish. Shot on 16mm, the film is
  intended to be projected forwards and then backwards. This work combines
  experimental film with electro-acoustic music. Together, they form a
  comprehensive experience which adds up to more than the sum of its
  parts. The music is produced by Samuli 'Teho' Majamäki, and the other
  musicians appearing alongside him are Ilpo Väisänen (Pan sonic), Tapani
  Rinne, and Verneri Lumi (Rinneradio).

 STEINA!
  Steina Vasulka in person! Live performance!  A major figure in the
  histories of video and electronic art, Steina Vasulka has continually
  expanded the possibilities of multimedia with her groundbreaking
  innovations. Trained as a classical violinist in Iceland, Steina turned
  to video after moving to New York City in the mid-1960s. Her distinctly
  musical experiments with the electronic signal, including her real-time
  performances and development of early video synthesizers, reverberate
  throughout historical and contemporary art practice. Steina's recent
  projects continue this pioneering approach, as her dynamic environments
  of digitally manipulated visual and acoustic landscapes have been
  installed around the world. This evening, Steina presents a collection
  of both classic early pieces and newer works, discusses her interest in
  electronic media, and performs a stirring, not-to-be-missed
  interpretation of her seminal performance piece, Violin Power
  (1974-78/1992 – present). Steina Vasulka, 1970-2011, USA, multiple
  formats, ca. 75 min + discussion.

 ESSENTIAL CINEMA: NANOOK OF THE NORTH
  by Robert Flaherty 1922, 83 minutes, 35mm The most enduring of all
  Flaherty's films for its simplicity of purpose, structure, and design.
  It ennobles its subjects rather than exploiting them. Sharp and
  uncluttered, the film relies on a few well-developed sequences which
  remain in the memory of the viewer. "NANOOK is one of the most vital,
  dramatic and human films that has ever flashed across the screen." –Rex
  Ingram

 THIS SIDE OF PARADISE
  Jonas Mekas THIS SIDE OF PARADISE 1999, 35 minutes, 16mm. "For a period
  of several years [in the] late 60s and early 70s, I had the fortune to
  spend some time, mostly during the summers, with Jackie Kennedy's and
  her sister Lee Radziwill's families and children. Cinema was an
  integral, inseparable, as a matter of fact, a key part of our
  friendship. The time was still very close to the untimely, tragic death
  of John F. Kennedy. Jackie wanted to give something to her children to
  do, to help to ease the transition, life without a father. One of her
  thoughts was that a movie camera would be fun for children. Peter Beard,
  who was at that time tutoring John Jr. and Caroline in art history,
  suggested to Jackie that I was the man to introduce the children to
  cinema. Jackie said yes. And that's how it all began. "The images in
  this film, with a few exceptions, all come from the summers Caroline and
  John Jr. spent in Montauk, with their cousins Anthony and Tina
  Radziwill, in an old house Lee had rented from Andy Warhol, for a few
  summers. Andy himself spent many of his weekends there, in one of the
  cottages, as did Peter Beard, whom the children had adopted almost like
  their older brother or a father they missed. These were summers of
  happiness, joy and continuous celebrations of life and friendships.
  These were days of Little Fragments of Paradise." –J.M. Plus: Jonas
  Mekas SCENES FROM THE LIFE OF ANDY WARHOL 1963-90, 35 minutes, 16mm.
  This extraordinary diary film chronicles Warhol's everyday life and
  work, and the social and cultural milieu that swirled around him, with
  appearances from a host of figures including THIS SIDE OF PARADISE
  participants Caroline Kennedy, Peter Beard, and Tina Radziwill. Total
  running time: ca. 75 minutes.

 ESSENTIAL CINEMA: MAN OF ARAN
  by Robert Flaherty 1934, 76 minutes, 35mm Flaherty's third major film
  portrays the lives of a family of fisher folk on the Aran Islands off
  the coast of Galway, Ireland. Flaherty selected this location and
  subjects because of their isolation as the westernmost outpost of
  European civilization. In addition, the daily struggle between the
  islanders and the sea perfectly suited his interests and concerns. The
  scenes at sea are breathtaking. "His passionate devotion to the
  portrayal of human gesture and of a man's fight for his family makes the
  film an incomparable account of human dignity. Better than anyone,
  Flaherty knew how to show the true face of Man." –Georges Sadoul
