FLASHBACK FRIDAY FLYER

EPFC | July 7th, 2018

It is officially summer in California! The kids are out and about and the heat is real! Every summer the EPFC Filmmobile goes around LA and screens films for the public! Eight years ago you could catch some of my favorite films like Killer of Sheep or Mi Vida Loca. Can’t wait to see what this summer brings.

Marvelous Movie Mondays: DAPS

EPFC | July 6th, 2018

MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS!!

Guest Curator: Adán De La Garza

Theme: Cultural Geography and Performance for video
The videos selected for this series focus on performances for video outside of the studio or gallery that highlight both the agenda of the artist and the how the location they move through can influence or dictate that performance. Simple in their execution the artists remain open to the influence of their surroundings, at time relinquishing control entirely, albeit temporarily. The videos participate in a slow revealing of context and experimentation that rely heavily on one another to expose a myriad of things from the unique sounds of the space, cultural climate, human interaction, or even the infinite potential of a space given vast imagination.

MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS!!
Guest Curator: Alexa Lim Haas
Theme: Imitations of The Everyday
In form, in method, in their naturalism.

What happens when nothing happens? We explore 4 films that resist the heroic and spectacular which are so foreign to our experience of the everyday. They are unconcerned with epic obstacles, bookends and grand conclusions. These films use documentary techniques to tell a fiction, blurring the lines of true and false and searching for the miraculous in the average. Often they involve non-actors and the means of production are minimal with filmmakers utilizing the resources available to them to imitate what they would consider an ordinary day. We shine light on the everyday because it is common ground for audiences to consider the effects of political and historical circumstance on the private lives of ordinary people.

This week a short by Brazilian filmmaker Kleber Mendonça Filho — a master of showcasing beauty in subtle human moments. The rhythm of this short is in tune with the sounds of domestic appliances — timers ticking, microwaves beeping, fans lulling. Watch until the end to see what our protagonist’s watch timer is counting down toward!

The simplicity of his synopsis says it all: “The middle class. Brazil in the 90s. At 220 volts.”
