LA FILMFORUM PRESENTS NATURE PRESERVES WHAT THE PEOPLE FORGET: THE FILMS OF UTE AURAND, PART 1

Thursday, October 25 at 8 PM                   

Doors 7:30 PM; LA Filmforum pricing

Los Angeles Filmforum is pleased to present the work of Berlin-based filmmaker Ute Aurand with the artist in attendance. Stemming from the lyrical tradition of diary filmmaking and artisanal practices, her active and playful films emphasize the natural world and the social environment through intimate forms of portraiture. Throughout this body of work, distinct attention is given to the inner dialogues of thought and the tactile experiences of women. Considered as portraits, her subjects do not reside in isolation, but move in conversation with their surroundings and with the interactive circuits of the filmmaker. Her responsive handheld camerawork creates a palpable rhythmic sensibility, while her montage brings together disparate passages of change occurring in her own life and in the lives of her subjects. These screenings include the work of Scottish film poet Margaret Tait (1918–1999), an influential filmmaker for Aurand. Together these works draw upon the ambulations of daily life and the search for fleeting moments of presence, eschewing a myopic intensification of experience in favor of an exuberant engagement with the world.  Tickets: $10 general; $6 for students/seniors; free for Filmforum members. Available in advance from Brown Paper Tickets or at the door. For more information: www.lafilmforum.org or 323-377-7238. FILMMAKER UTE AURAND IN PERSON!

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.
