EPFC at ICU for Super 8 by B. Wurtz

EPFC | October 23rd, 2018

October 24, 7 – 9 PM at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. FREE EVENT!

Discover the Super 8 short films by B. Wurtz from 1979 and 1980, which capture the artist’s way of seeing art in the most mundane objects and situations. From interactions with his cat to observations about a pen, Wurtz’s simple premises provide anchors for subtle reflections on life.

Special guest Echo Park Film Center will assist in the projection of the original Super 8 format of Wurtz’s films. The screening will be followed by a lively information and demonstration session on the world of retro filmmaking in Super 8 by EPFC Coop Members Paolo Davanzo, Dicky Bahto and Lisa Marr.

Dear Diary: What if women ruled the world?

We ask this question as a starting point to reexamine the history of non-fiction filmmaking. Using only works made by women-identified artists and filmmakers, we will focus on viewing and discussing works that emphasize personal lived experiences and perspectives as the source for art. We will watch works along the spectrum of non-fiction filmmaking, from experimental to diaristic, and from the observational to documentary. Students in the class will all produce their own non-fiction personal films, discovering how their own lives and experiences can be a powerful source for making art.

Instructors: Dicky Bahto and Penelope Uribe-Abee

This class is FREE to teens ages 12 – 19 with all instruction, materials and equipment provided at no cost by EPFC. Participants must be willing and able to attend ALL 10 SESSIONS!

A mandatory orientation session for all participating students and their parents/guardians will take place at EPFC at 10 am on Saturday, September 15.
