MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS!!
guest curator: georgia fu
Theme: “Filial Piety – Parents and Kids”
This was a short that I found on The Atlantic recently about a “psychic’s tragic predicting coming true”. The loss of a parent is probably one of the most devastating things that can happen to a family, but what I found touching about this piece is that it’s essentially feels like a son trying to connect with his mother, through their shared tragedies, in a short film.

Please join our current LA AIR artist-in-residence Carmina Escobar from Friday, November 9 to Saturday, November 10, 2018 at REDCAT for her performance Pura Entraña.
An elaborately prepared piano hovers above the stage for Pura Entraña, a hyper-sounding textural performance by experimental vocalist and intermedia artist Carmina Escobar, who activates the installation Piano Suspendido (Suspended Piano) by Jerónimo Naranjo.
Their collaboration with the Mexican improvisation ensemble Der Bauch (José Pablo Jiménez, Deborah Silberer, Jerónimo Naranjo) and experimental luthier Carlos Chinchillas, explores the subject of vulnerability in its poetic sense.
A magic sonic/visual surrealist realization, Pura Entraña (Pure Gut) follows a route of perceptual narratives in a performance that seeks to connect the audience to the essential sounds/gestures from the bodies and voices of the performers, and the piano and its entrails.
Invited artists include Dorian Wood, Roxanne Steinberg, Oguri, Yulissa Maqueos and the Maqueos Family.
This film is such an interesting journey to experience. Each person in the film has their own set of inner thoughts that the viewer can vicariously experience through their body language!
