  NEW WORKS SALON: BROOKBANK, MARIN, SWEENEY, TOSCANO
   The New Works Salons series is a casual forum for the presentation and
   discussion of new works in film and video, with local and visiting
   artists in-person to introduce their work. Nora Sweeney will show her
   new film Sweet Oranges (2014, 16mm, 18.5 minutes): �Heading west from
   my house, I explore the back roads off of California State Route 126,
   finding small, historic towns, farms, and railway tracks nestled between
   mountains and orchards - a landscape that evokes a dream of
   California�s past. Along the way, I meet Jaime, Blanca, and Hugo, a
   group of orange pickers from Michoacan, Mexico, who share with me their
   songs, dreams, aspirations, and thoughts about work.� Ursula Brookbank
   will show Crystallography and the She World Archive: The principals of
   X-ray Crystallography used by biochemist Dorothy Hodgkin to study
   molecular structures applied to film projection. Ms. Hodgkin was awarded
   the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1964 for confirming the molecular
   structure of insulin using X-ray Crystallography where a crystal is
   gradually rotated while being bombarded with X-rays producing refraction
   patterns and molecular data for study. For this salon, recently acquired
   16mm film from the SHE WORLD ARCHIVE similarly becomes a light beam
   projected through gradually rotating crystals. Pablo Mar�n, in town
   from Buenos Aires, will show his brand new Angelus novus, and we'll have
   a selection of new items by Mark Toscano.

2:30pm, National Mall between 3rd and 9th Streets, West Building Lecture Hall

  A MINOR CINEMA
   In response to the inaugural International Experimental Film Congress
   held in Toronto in 1989, film scholar Tom Gunning published the
   influential essay "Towards A Minor Cinema: Fonoroff, Herwitz, Ahwesh,
   Lapore, Klahr and Solomon." Focusing on the work of those young
   experimental filmmakers, Gunning argued that theirs was a practice that
   embraced the "outsider" status of personal cinema: "I believe that these
   filmmakers profoundly understand their place in film history and in the
   economic realities of film distribution and exhibition. These films
   assert no vision of conquest, make no claims to hegemony." Including The
   Secret Garden (Phil Solomon, 1988); The Sleepers (Mark Lapore, 1989);
   Department of the Interior (Nina Fonoroff, 1986); and Nocturne (Peggy
   Ahwesh, 1998), among other titles. (Total running time approximately 90
   minutes)

  ART WORLD CROSSOVER
   The gallery space and the screen as exhibition sites are very often
   synonymous, as evidenced by this program of experimental films by
   artists lauded for their work in both the white cube and the black box.
   Titles include Scotch Tape (Jack Smith, 1959  1962); Standard Time
   (Michael Snow, 1967); Passage à l'acte (Martin Arnold, 1993); and . . .
   Remote . . . Remote . . . (VALIE EXPORT, 1973), among others. (Total

  STEVE COSSMAN'S RITUALS OF RESTORATION
   ++ FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE ++ Steve Cossman of Brooklyn's Mono No Aware
   will be joining us in Durham for UNEXPOSED's August screening featuring
   his program titled RITUALS OF RESTORATION. Steve will present six
   works--five of them on 16mm--for a total of 47 minutes. After the
   program, Steve will sit down with us for a 30 minute Q&A. Program info
   and bio below! UNEXPOSED is a monthly screening series with the purpose
   of establishing an ongoing presence of experimental film and video in
   the Durham community. Filmmakers always in attendance. [Curated by
   Brendan & Jeremy Smyth] PROGRAM: 'RITUALS OF RESTORATION' A program of
   moving image work by Steve Cossman Running time : 47 minutes The world,
   on both the micro and macro level, is constantly moving within a
   framework of units this irrepressible flux of time is the nexus of human
   experience and perception. Investigating the quantification of this
   motion through a reordering of various elements, I employ universally
   recognizable imagery within a patterned visual language. Often using
   time as a structure, the 'natural' rhythm of life is altered to create a
   resonating interval. This visual discord allows the viewer to reconsider
   established perceptual relationships. Materials for these works have
   been sourced from refuse and re-organized to speak to their own
   degradation. TUSSLEMUSCLE 5 min / 16mm color / optical sound / 2007-2009

   by Jahiliyya fields (Matthew Morandi, L.I.E.S.) BIO: Steve Cossman is
   founder and director of Mono No Aware; a nonprofit cinema arts
   organization whose annual event exhibits the work of contemporary
   artists who incorporate live film projections and altered light as part
   of a performance, sculpture or installation. In 2010 the organization
   established a series of analog filmmaking workshops, and has grown to
   include in their activities an equipment rentals program and an
   in-person screening series entitled Connectivity Through Cinema. Steve's
   first major work on film, TUSSLEMUSCLE, earned him Kodak's Continued
   Excellence in Filmmaking award and has screened at many festivals and
   institutions internationally. In 2013, he completed residencies at MoMA
   PS1's Expo 1 and the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto. He
   has been a visiting artist at Dartmouth, the New York Academy of Art,
   Yale, SAIC, and UPenn. Steve's newest work on film, W H I T E C A B B A
   G E (2011-2014), a collaboration with Jahiliyya Fields of L.I.E.S., had
   its U.S. premiere at Anthology Film Archives. He currently lives and
   works in Brooklyn as a director, curator, visual artist and member of
   the collective DecayNY, creating time-based works on film, video, and
   paper.

  GEORGE KUCHAR'S SECRETS OF THE SHADOW WORLD
   Presented with Primary Information - Secrets of the Shadow World, George
   Kuchar, 1998-99, video, 135 mins - "Kuchar's magnum opus" - Amy Taubin -
   "With a new millennium almost upon us, images of space aliens
   invading the marketplace and sleeping habits of consumers worldwide,
   this miniseries abducts the viewers into the universe of John A. Keel
   (via a video time-warp supplied by me with Rockefeller Foundation
   funding). It's a leisurely expedition through a maze of kitchens and
   cerebral convolutions in search of the mysteries behind the mundane (or
   vice versa!). Mr. Keel, an author and stage magician, has made a
   profound impact on the pop-culture we swim in. His research and books on
   the UFO enigma have ignited an explosive wild-fire of imaginative
   invocations such as the X-Files TV show and the Men in Black blockbuster
   movie. Yet you never hear about him and he never hears from the movie
   and television companies. In this video you see and hear him. You also
   see and hear a whole lot of other people and some animals. The whole
   show runs almost 2 hours and 20 minutes, but be sure to stay for part 3
   as the UFO/Horror author, Whitley Strieber, teams up with my old star
   Donna Kerness to reveal exclusive revelations on the 'visitor'
   experience. See this video... then read their books — and pray it's
   not true!" - GK - In conjunction with the publication of The George
   Kuchar Reader, edited by Andrew Lampert, Light Industry hosts a
   screening of Kuchar's tripartite Fortean epic Secrets of the Shadow
   World. The culmination of the artist's life-long fascination with
   paranormal phenomena, Secrets features spooky tales of the chupacabra,
   Sasquatch, flying saucers, and the death of film via a maelstrom of
   wipes, swirls, chromakey, and other instruments of lo-fi videographic
   excess, all set to an anachronistic soundtrack of syrupy mood music. And
   though the work's ostensible subject is extraterrestrial, its true focus
   is on the ultra-ordinary, the everyday interactions that Kuchar renders
   with incredible tenderness and wit—his ersatz stars shine brightest
   while eating a sandwich. Indeed, Keel offers a remark at one point about
   his own work that doubles as an apposite description of Kuchar's
   project: "The book is not about people from outer space. It's about
   people right here on earth." - Tickets - $7, available at door.

  LATE NIGHT WITH CARL SAGAN BY SHANNA MAURIZI
   TRT: 11m. Shot entirely on an iPhone with homemade props and
   frame-by-frame animation, Late Night with Carl Sagan is a restaging, a
   reimagining, and an insomniac response to Sagan's iconic 1980 series,
   Cosmos. Poetic, existential, hopeful, his series is a timeless prophecy
   on humanity's place in the universe. Sagan talks to the subject with an
   attitude best described as wonder, in a manner that is wholly different
   than the position taken towards science by contemporary entertainment.
   Viewed late at night on Netflix, it becomes a participatory
   conversation, drifting into tangent, hyperbole, speculation, and
   intervention.

  VINEGAR SYNDROME! SELECTIONS FROM THE EPFC FILM LIBRARY
   A monthly grab bag of short educational and ephemeral films, plumbing
   the depths of EPFC's impressive 16mm library. For enthusiasts of found
   footage and collage films, it's a great way to learn what kinds of films
   are available at the Film Center--the weird, the cool, the good, the
   bad, the ugly. All films are selected purely by title around a specific
   theme, and we won't be previewing any films, so we'll be just as
   surprised as you guys... This month's theme: ANIMALS—a compendium of
   odd-ball nature films about all things furry, feathered, scaly, and
   slimy. We'll be bringing an animal cracker icebox cake for your snacking
   pleasure. Casual viewing environment—feel free to laugh, talk, and
   comment on the movies as we screen them. And we'll watch as many films
   as we can cram into a 90 minute screening session. Curated by Gina
   Napolitan and Beaux Mingus.

7:30 pm, 32 2nd Avenue

  ESSENTIAL CINEMA: JEAN GENET/ROBERT FRANK & ALFRED LESLIE PROGRAM
   Jean Genet UN CHANT D'AMOUR 1950, 26 minutes, 35mm, b&w, silent. Jean
   Genet's poetic expression of male eroticism pitted against the confines
   of prison cells and a homophobic state
 a powerfully resonant work that
   explores individual freedom and the laws of desire. Robert Frank &
   Alfred Leslie PULL MY DAISY 1959, 28 minutes, 35mm, b&w. A largely
   spontaneous experiment, arranged in 1959 by Robert Frank along with
   Alfred Leslie. They enlisted the participation of Jack Kerouac, who
   offered in place of an original screenplay a stage play he'd never
   finished writing, "The Beat Generation." The plot is based on an
   incident in the life of Neal Cassady and his wife Carolyn. They're
   raising a family and trying to fit in with their suburban neighbors, and
   one night they invite a respectable neighborhood bishop over for dinner.
   But Neal's Beat friends crash the party, and that Marx Brothers-like
   scenario is the closest thing the film has to a storyline. Total running
   time: ca. 60 minutes.

  ESSENTIAL CINEMA: UNE SIMPLE HISTOIRE
   by Marcel Hanoun In French with projected English subtitles, 1958, 68
   min, 16mm, b&w "Based on a true incident, the film chronicles the
   wanderings of a woman and child looking for work and lodging in Paris.
   This is the only plot, and Hanoun has little interest in embellishing it
   with background and motivation: he never even makes it clear, for
   example, whether the woman is the child's mother, guardian or companion.
   UNE SIMPLE HISTOIRE is, more than a narrative, a formal stylistic
   exercise so rigorously disciplined and understated that it makes the
   visual asceticism of Robert Bresson seem almost Fellini-esque by
   comparison." TIME

   have been burning a hole on my hard drive for too
   long–I have been working/adding to/deleting parts of
   these videos for different formats, versions and contexts for almost 3
   years! These videos can be considered video essays, music videos, works
   of abstract animation, or YouTube junk, depending on your perspective.

   "Latuga is a desperate woman living a desperate life. Divorced from
   fancy suit store owner Classe, she is forced to live in a small studio
   apartment and care for the couple's ex-heroin addict son Puzo. The boy,
   obsessed with a toy barbecue pit, is always on the verge of some
   horrific act. In order to earn money, Latuga services her ex-husband's
   needs. Most of the time, that means picking up a rifle and killing the
   homeless bums that hang out in front of his shop. At other instances,
   it's something far more perverted. Meanwhile, Frisco and his deformed
   brother Defetto avoid Latuga's gunfire while coming up with a plan to
   get off the street. The solution? Marry someone of means and get a free
   pass to a place with the ultimate in live-in
   luxury…air conditioning. Naturally, Frisco winds up
   wooing Latuga, and they are quickly wed. When Classe finds out about the
   situation, he's livid. Such anger sparks Puzo into an act of violence.
   Fate, however, has a different plan for all of them."

  ESSENTIAL CINEMA: CROCKWELL/GRANT/JACOBS & FLEISCHNER PROGRAM
   Douglass Crockwell THE LONG BODIES (1949, 6 min, 16mm) GLEN FALLS
   SEQUENCE (1964, 8 min, 16mm) "The basic idea was to paint continuing
   pictures on various layers with plastic paint, adding at times and
   removing at times, and to a certain extent these early attempts were
   successful." D.C. Dwinell Grant COMPOSITION #2 CONTRATHEMIS (1941, 5
   min, 16mm, silent) "An attempt to develop visual abstract themes and to
   counterpoint them in a planned, formal composition." D.G. STOP MOTION
   TESTS (1942, 3 min, 16mm, silent) A self-portrait. COLOR SEQUENCE (1943,
   3 min, 16mm, silent) "Pure solid-color frames which fade, mutate and
   flicker. A research into color rhythms and perceptual phenomena."
   William Moritz Ken Jacobs LITTLE STABS AT HAPPINESS (1959-63, 18 min,
   16mm. With Jack Smith.) "Material was cut in as it came out of the
   camera, embarrassing moments intact. 100' rolls timed well with music on
   old 78s. I was interested in immediacy, a sense of ease, and an art
   where suffering was acknowledged but not trivialized with dramatics.
   Whimsy was our achievement, as well as breaking out of step." K.J. Ken
   Jacobs & Bob Fleischner BLONDE COBRA 1959-63, 35 min, 16-to-35mm
   blow-up, b&w/color. With Jack Smith. Preserved by Anthology, with the
   generous support of The Film Foundation. "BLONDE COBRA is an erratic
   narrative  no, not really a narrative, it's only stretched out in time
   for convenience of delivery. It's a look in on an exploding life, on a
   man of imagination suffering pre-fashionable Lower East Side deprivation
   and consumed with American 1950s, 40s, 30s disgust. Silly, self-pitying,
   guilt-strictured and yet triumphing  on one level  over the situation
   with style - enticing us into an absurd moral posture the better to
   dismiss us with a regal 'screw off.'" K.J. Total running time: ca. 85
   min.

ESSENTIAL CINEMA: JEROME HILL PROGRAM
   These 35mm prints are the result of a recent preservation project
   undertaken by the Museum of Modern Art. DEATH IN THE FORENOON (1934/66,
   2 minutes, 35mm, color) CANARIES (1969, 4 minutes, 35mm, color) & FILM
   PORTRAIT 1971, 81 minutes, 35mm, color. A pioneering work in
   autobiographical cinema; masterfully combines actual and staged footage
   and painting over images. Filmmaker, painter, and composer Jerome Hill
   was descended from the famous railroad-building family and lived on the
   same street with F. Scott Fitzgerald. Here he re-creates wonderfully
   with old family footage  the period and milieu of the American upper
   class at the beginning of this century. Total running time: ca. 90
   minutes.
