This October we are celebrating Halloween with the extension of our MOVIES+JAMS events (which will continue to happen every month from now on!) Screening SALO the notorious final film from Pier Paolo Pasolini and a live performance by DubKnowDub.
DUBKNOWDUB, comprised of visual artists Sto and Smhoak Mosheein, exist as a loose amalgam of electronics, trash, science fiction, movement, and an awareness of magical practice filtered through the cargo cult recreation methods of dub music. http://www.facebook.com/dubknowdub?sk=wall
Next wednesday we'll be screening Masaki Kobayashi’s Kwaidan (1964), stated as "one of the most meticulously crafted supernatural fantasy films ever made, and one of the most unusual". Winner of the Special Jury Prize at Cannes in 1965, Kwaidan features four nightmarish stories, based on Lafcadio Hearn's collections of Japanese folk tales, in which terror thrives and demons lurk.
Shot almost entirely in enormous studio sets, with a completely post-synched and carefully controlled soundtrack, Kwaidan is about as far from moviemaking “realism” as it’s possible to go.
This wednesday we'll be screening Stanley Kurbrick's controversial 1971 "A Clockwork Orange". Kubrick's quickest feature production, is an adaptation of Anthony Burgess's novel of the same name, starring Malcolm McDowell as Alex, the charismatic delinquent psychopath. A dark, social satire dealing with violence in human society, set in a dystopian futuristic Great Britain that is both authoritarian and chaotic.
Our regular weekly screenings are back! with the baffling and beautiful 1975 "Black Moon" by French director Louis Malle. A fable heavily inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, Black Moon is a Freudian tale of adolescent sexuality set in a post-apocalyptic world of shifting identities and unlikely beings such as talking unicorns, weeping flowers and a breastfed old lady. It is one of Malle’s most experimental films and a cinematic daydream like no other. Stars Catheryn Harrison as the lead and Warhol's Joe Dallesandro.
