Doors 7:30 pm; $5 admission

The New Works Salons series is a casual forum for the presentation and discussion of new works in film, video, sound, and performance, with local and visiting artists often in-person to introduce their work. This, the forty-seventh program in the series, will feature work by Christina Nguyen, Jose Guadalupe Sanchez III, Max Schulman, Mike Stoltz, Walter Vargas, and Lucy Williams. In person from the UK, Lucy Williams is an artist shooting video using only pinhole apertures attached directly to HD cameras.  She will be presenting her work Light of Day I and II, a single channel experimental piece with a bespoke electronic soundtrack, drawing on Lucy’s roots in Venice, Italy – as her family is part of a long history of glass-making there. Part I is themed around the four elements (vital to glass making): Earth (silica, sand), Air (to power the furnace), Fire (the furnace) and Water (for cooling). Part II is shot with a multiple pinhole disc and gives an impressionistic almost kaleidoscopic view of the city’s crowded alleys and waterways. Max Schulman will show his video Cher · Betty · David, an experimental documentary composed of intimate conversations with three different passengers traveling alone on the train between Los Angeles and Chicago. Walter Vargas will show his film Balance of Endeavor: mercy for forgotten things, “6 years after a space shuttle that was in outer space orbiting the Earth was hauled through a community disenfranchised by the same Senate subcommittees that fund Captain Kirk Free Enterprise; a revisit.” We’ll also have Christina Nguyen showing a new in-progress 3Dwork for dual 16mm projection, Mike Stoltz with a 16mm flicker film, and Jose Guadalupe Sanchez III with his video The Poems are Gods.

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!
