Marvelous Movie Mondays January Guest Curator Leah Shore!

EPFC | January 3rd, 2019

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.

And now, time to check out Leah’s film “HALLWAY”:

Beast of Stray

EPFC | December 24th, 2018

guest curator: Brina Thurston

theme: Queen of the Trap

Beast of Stray short
trailer for the full film

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.

Marvelous Movie Mondays: Filial Piety – Parents and Kids

EPFC | November 21st, 2018

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.

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!

Letter From The Gone World

EPFC | October 23rd, 2018

Guest Curator: Jenna Maurice 
Theme: Inner Thoughts

Title: Letter from the Gone World

Lydia’s work is so smart and so thoughtful. This film deals with inner thoughts about loss returning to us what is gone in this portrait of the future in the past tense.
