Marvelous Movie Mondays: Mall Madness

EPFC | November 4th, 2019

MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS!!
guest curator: Amy Ruhl

The theme of this month is MALL MADNESS: four moving image works that highlight the architectural space of shopping centers—whether as narrative backdrop, or character in itself. Complicated feelings about consumption abound!

To begin, George Romero’s 1978 film Dawn of the Dead. Written in collaboration with Dario Argento

What better place to hide from the flesh eating undead then a suburban shopping mall?

You can watch Amy’s video Hysterical Reenactments: WITCH here: https://vimeo.com/141975865

Description from Amy: Multiple forms of reenactment combine with interview footage to create a video portrait of the short-lived feminist activist group, WITCH (Women’s International Terrorist Conspiracy from Hell). Having reenacted WITCH’s hex of Wall Street on Halloween of 1968, I communicated with original member, Peggy Dobbins, to compare our experiences from 1968 and 2014. Re-performing text from Dobbins’ interview in my home and inter-cutting with fragments of our conversation and documentation of the recent hex, layers of historical reenactment come together to form something between documentary and lived archive. With hex poems by M.C. Elberg.

Turtle Dreams

EPFC | October 15th, 2019

MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS!!
guest curator: Zachary Epcar

This week, continuing the theme of EXTRAVAGANT ACTS, we have 1983’s ‘Turtle Dreams’ by Meredith Monk & Ping Chong.

“‘Turtle Dreams’ was created in the period when I was thinking about the artist as an antenna of society. The pieces were more about stating the ‘problem’ as I saw it, even if it was presented in a very oblique manner – seeing the occurrence and reflecting those energies in the piece. In a sense, more an apocalyptic vision.” – Meredith Monk.
