Hello 2019 and hello January!! New month means a new guest curator for MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS, our weekly online-only screening series where we welcome a new artist each month to spin flicks on the EPFC Facebook page each Monday. This month, we’re super excited to welcome…
Leah has been fortunate to have her films shown internationally at film festivals, museums and galleries. She was named one of Filmmaker Magazines “25 New Faces in Indie Film…”, and has been written about in publications from VICE, The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal, Nowness, Indiewire, etc. Her film, OLD MAN is currently on The Criterion Collection playing before the film Easy Rider. She aspires to make a feature and perhaps one day even have an episodic show.http://www.leahshore.com/

MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS!!
guest curator: Brina Thurston
theme: Queen of the Trap
My sister and I have worked together since she showed up at my house in 1980. This was her MFA thesis at Cal Arts in 2010. Her movies are always crazy epic tales existing in only worlds she can make-up. She pulled a short out of the longer version, here the main character and some stray women find themselves in an abandoned water tower for a more than unusual experience. This film felt very close the the Agnes Varda film I have also chosen for this series where the character is trying to escape the world we know only to be constantly beaten down by it.
