AN EVENING WITH EPFC’S SUMMER ARTIST IN RESIDENCE RICARDO LEITE

Saturday, July 30 at 8 PM

Ricardo Leite started making videos with a JVC video8 camera as child. Later he thought about studying painting in the Fine Arts University of Porto. At the last moment he decided to study cinema instead. That’s when he felt in love with film: Super 8, 8mm, 16mm and 35mm. He bought his first lomo spiral tank in 1999 in Ukraine, and he started to develop his films at home. In 2002 he started to work in associative photography labs that he adapted for cinema film formats. In 2006 he funded Atomo47, the first and only independent film lab in Portugal. In 2012, after his second son was born, worried about the carcinogenic properties of some chemistry used, he started to research biodegradable and low toxic film developing processes. His films focus on experimental and documentary genres, with political, artistic and anthropological reflections. Tonight’s screening includes Leite’s new work created during his time as EPFC’s Summer Artist In Residence as well as a selection of past work. FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE!

Doors at 7:30. FREE EVENT.

Swampy's Diaries

For the “bootleg artist” known as Swampy, the world is an endless living canvas. Variations on his signature “swampdonkey” tag — the skull of some imaginary tusked creature — can be found in almost every imaginable setting across America: dilapidated skyscrapers in Oakland, Calif.; train trestles in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico; gallery walls in Atlanta or Brooklyn.
