Book To Action Series: Tell Your Story Walking at Goldwyn Hollywood Regional Library

EPFC | January 20th, 2020
Members of Echo Park Film Center and film makers will screen and discuss the short film series, Tell Your Story Walking at Goldwyn Hollywood Regional Library – Los Angeles Public Library on Monday, January 27: 6 pm – 7:30 pm. Free event!
 
This program is part of a larger series of programs for Book to Action 2020-Hollywood Region. The series focuses on programs about walking, writing, and poetry.
 
A series of programs inspired by Harryette Mullen’s book, Urban Tumbleweed. Urban Tumbleweed is poet Harryette Mullen’s exploration of spaces where the city and the natural world collide. Written out of a daily practice of walking, Mullen’s stanzas adapt the traditional Japanese tanka, a poetic form suited for recording fleeting impressions, describing environmental transitions, and contemplating the human being’s place in the natural world.
 
Book to Action is a framework that takes the basic book club concept and expands it to create a dynamic series of events for adults and intergenerational groups. Librarians work closely with a community partner to develop a series of programs. Community members read and discuss an engaging book on a current topic, attend author or speaker events, and put their new-found knowledge into action by participating in a community service project or civic engagement activity related to the book.

Marvelous Movie Mondays: Between a Gaze and a Gesture

EPFC | January 20th, 2020

MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS!!
guest curator: Emily Chao

“How do we formulate words to speak of this history?” This week’s pick is an excerpt from Hannah Dawn Henderson’s twin slide projector installation, Between a Gaze and a Gesture. While the video featured here is only a short excerpt, the installation itself runs as an eight minute loop, affording no end to the dialogue that ensues between the viewer and the archive of material from the mid-20th century Commonwealth migrations in the UK.

“As I studied documents in the archive and brought them into consideration with the oral narratives that have transcended the generations within my own family, it increasingly seems that this era marked a particular shift: in light of the then-recent move towards the constitutional independence of formerly colonised lands, Commonwealth migrants and their descendants — entities who are culturally diasporic yet British in nationality — became the new territory upon which the power-play of colonialism would be exerted, and this would manifest first by the negation of their claim to a British identity. It is this ostracisation and, in turn, the desire to reject it that seems to have served as a catalyst for the cultivation of cultural plurality — yet the question of what British identity actually is and to what extent it addresses the diasporic legacies that the British Empire and its collapse orchestrated remains a precarious and fragile question.” – Hannah Dawn Henderson
