POST-IMPERFECT-PANOPTIC TRADING ON STILTS: FILMS BY JASON HALPRIN AND MICHAEL WOODS

Saturday, July 29  at 8 PM  

Doors 7:30 PM. $5 admission.                                                                

The two filmmakers met while volunteering for Chicago Filmmakers in the mid ’00s, and quickly hit it off. Jason was an old-school, super8, 16mm, hand-processing, optical-printing analog filmmaker, and Michael was jumping head first into the whole aesthetic of experimental film & video, and contemporary art. Fast forward ten years and Michael has chewed up and glitched out the experimental film canon, fashioned into a conspiracy theory of parasitic nothingness. Meanwhile, Jason has ceased shouting at analog windmills and embraced the digital non-event. They share an affinity for collage and the political in their work – freely mixing found and original footage, gliding between allegory and agitprop, straddling the eras of analog and digital, assaulting viewers’ senses and serenity, dissecting and constructing the media around them. Now based in the Bay Area (Halprin) and LA (Woods), both filmmakers relocated to CA in 2015, and are happy to make their debut at EPFC.

ACTION! CINEMA AS CONNECTION PRESENTS ALIMA LEE & FRIENDS - PORTALS I: A GESTURE TOWARDS NEW BLACK FEMME SCREEN NARRATIVES

Portals are openings, specific entrées through which something might be viewed or moved: elaborate and glamorous in of themselves -- the destination is elevated by the threshold itself. In fantasy, portals operate as a symbol for cataclysmic change, the moment after which the protagonist's worldview is not the same.

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.
