Past EPFC LA AIR artist Pablo Valencia’s debut feature film, CHATTY CATTIES, is a laugh-out-loud comedy set in an alternate world in which cats are able to communicate with humans. Sassy tabby Leonard (voiced by John Autry) is at odds with his human roommate, Shelby (Megan Hensley), whose own emotional problems limit her abilities to provide for the most basic of Leonard’s needs. But, when Shelby begins a relationship with kind-hearted musician, Nate (Matthew Grathwol), Leonard sees a brighter future for both him and his owner, but it won’t come without a few emotional fireworks along the way. Playing this weekend at the Roxie in San Francisco!

Check out EPFC’s front window over the next few weeks and you will see a compelling documentary that transforms 100 murder sites in Los Angeles into art.
As part of LA’s Public Art Biennial Current:LA, Mexican Artist Teresa Margolles created La Sombra (“The Shade”), a large temporary monument in Echo Park that used water gathered from the cleansing of these murder sites as part of its construction.
The sculpture is currently on view at the north east corner of Echo Park Lake. In addition to screening at EPFC, the documentary is also showing at various shops in Echo Park including El Clasico Tattoo and Eyla Hair Salon.
EPFC Founder/Executive Director Paolo Davanzo’s new cinema work AVANTI POPOLO is up until July 3 at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery as part of the 2016 C.O.L.A. show for the next three months.
