FILMMOBILE SUMMER SCREENING SERIES PRESENTS AMY HALPERN’S FALLING LESSONS

EPFC | August 16th, 2018

Join us for the second event of the 2018 Filmmobile Summer Screening Series: Amy Halpern’s FALLING LESSONS at SPARC (685 Venice Blvd, Venice, CA 90291). 8 PM! FREE! Bingo! Refreshments! Everyone Welcome!

“Amy Halpern’s 64 minute Falling Lessons is a stunningly sensual, life-affirming experience from a major experimental film artist that is open to myriad meanings. The film is a rhythmic montage of almost 200 faces, human and animals, that Halpern pans vertically, creating a cascade of visages suggesting that while individuals express a range of emotions they remain ultimately enigmas. The glimpses of life going on around all these faces have an unsettling, even apocalyptic quality, and the film forces you to consider living beings and their value collectively rather than selectively. Halpern’s rich, inspired mix of sounds, words and music complements her images perfectly.” -Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

AMY HALPERN is a filmmaker who has been working with light, camera and movement for more than 40 years. Born and raised in New York City, Halpern studied and performed in modern dance with Lynda Gudde and Anna Sokolow, worked in the early 1970s in 3-D shadow-play with Ken & Flo Jacobs’ New York “Apparition Theatre” and in 1973 she was one of the founders of New York City’s “Collective For Living Cinema”. Halpern moved to Los Angeles in 1974, where she completed a graduate degree in film at UCLA. She has worked on many Hollywood and independent feature films as gaffer and/or cinematographer, including Charles Burnett’s My Brother’s Wedding, Pat O’Neill’s Decay of Fiction and David Lebrun’s Breaking the Maya Code. Halpern also appears in several of Chick Strand’s films, such as Soft Fiction, Krystalnacht, Cartoon Le Moose, and Fever Dream. In 1975 she was one of the founders of the Los Angeles Independent Film Oasis, devoted to the presentation of avant-garde film work, and she is currently member of the classic West Coast light show Single Wing Turquoise Bird, founded in LA in 1968. Amy Halpern lives and works in LA.
