Fire, Flood and Freeway: An EPFC West Coast Tour!

AUGUST 11 – AUGUST 29, 2018

Fire, Flood and Freeway is a touring program of films and videos by LosAngeles-based artists. This eclectic program features works from the Echo Park Film Center Co-op, a group of activists, filmmakers, volunteers, and educators dedicated to providing media arts access to underserved populations and giving people the tools to tell their own stories in their own voices. The program revolves around themes of identity, community, and our complicated relationship to the shifting cultural and physical Southern California landscape. Poetic and abstract, aggressive and intellectually rigorous, vulnerable and mysterious–these pieces reflect our varying approaches to life, as much as our varied approaches to filmmaking. Experimental
techniques, animation, expanded cinema pieces, and fractured narratives illuminate our diversity as much as our commonalities.

Works by Beaux Mingus, Cosmo Segurson, Alee Peoples, Gina Napolitan, Mike Stoltz, Andrew Kim, Karissa Hahn, Emett Casey, Ariel Teal, Patrick Stephenson, Moira MacDonald, Paolo Davanzo, and Lisa Marr.

Program curated by Beaux Mingus, Gina Napolitan and Cosmo Segurson.

Echo Park Film Center and Los Angeles Filmforum present LOCAL HISTORY: A Robert Todd Tribute

The world lost one of its great poets of the moving image in August of 2018. Robert Todd was a dedicated and tireless educator, artist, and engaged community member, both locally in his home of Boston and globally with his international film family. As one of contemporary experimental filmmaking’s most prolific artists, one regular program would barely represent even a tiny fraction of his prodigious output. So instead, we’ll be celebrating his life and work with a slightly bigger fraction in the form of a five-hour marathon screening! Many very special thanks to Tessa Day and Deb Todd Wheeler for supporting this event!
