QUANTUM IDENTITY POLITICS: A FILM BY MIKO REVEREZA

This month Marvelous Movie Mondays celebrates the good people of the EPFC Coop and all the dedicated work they do in bringing the Cinematic Revolution to YOU!

In advance of the so-called President’s Tuesday announcement on whether he will rescind Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals [DACA] program, we share with you Miko Revereza’s powerful QUANTUM IDENTITY POLITICS that speaks directly to the frustration and fury inherent in being a Dreamer in America.

A Day In The Sun: New Films by the EPFC Coop was made possible with the support of the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts.

A Day In The Sun

EPFC | September 2nd, 2017

Happy first day of September! On the first of the month, we typically announce a new guest curator for MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS, our weekly online-only screening series. This month, however, we’re keeping things in-house so we can bring you some of the fruits of “A Day in the Sun,” a recent exciting EPFC project made possible by an Artist Project Grant from the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts.

Launched in June of last year, the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts Artist Project Grants seek to further Mike Kelley’s philanthropic work and honor his legacy by supporting innovative projects with visual artists at L.A. nonprofit institutions and organizations. The goal is to benefit both visual artists and arts organizations alike and to support compelling and inventive projects in any medium, particularly work that is under-known, or has proven difficult to make or to fund.

In recognition of their countless hours as the Center’s educators, programmers, projectionists and facilitators, Echo Park Film Center Co-op members—Rick Bahto, Emett Casey, Brenda Contreras, Paolo Davanzo, Andrew Kim, Eve-Lauryn Little Shell LaFountain, Kate Lain, Lisa Marr, Shauna McGarry, Beaux Gest Mingus, Gina Napolitan, Will O’Loughlen, Ellie Parker, Miko Revereza, Chloe Reyes, Cosmo Segurson, Sharmaine Starks, Mike Stoltz, Ariel Teal, and Penelope Uribe-Abee—were commissioned to make new experimental lens-based works exploring their relationships to Los Angeles. Coming from all walks of life, Co-op members include both experienced and self-taught filmmakers, queer-identifying filmmakers, artists of color, art school graduates, and EPFC youth film program alumni.

Their films, single and multichannel projections, site-specific installations, itinerant performances, and multimedia and expanded cinema experiments premiered earlier this year in March. We’ve been continuing to share these works around town and are excited to now showcase some of them here on our Facebook page through MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS!!
