THE BEST OF PUNTO Y RAYA FESTIVAL 2018

Tuesday, February 19 at 8 PM

Doors 7:30 PM; $5 admission.

Punto y Raya (Dot & Line), dubbed “the most abstract festival in the world” by the Japanese press, fosters experimentation in visual arts through the use of pure Form, Colour, Motion and Sound, avoiding direct representation. This renders it universal and timeless. Its mission is to recapture the spirit of Cinéma Pure and Absolute Film formulated by the European avant-garde in the 1920s, consolidating this unique artform laying at the intersection between Fine Arts and Media.

With seven installments under its belt and the most comprehensive online Catalogue and Resource Centre in the genre, Punto y Raya has established itself as the benchmark for Abstract Art in Motion.

This selection features the 18 finalist and awarded films in their latest edition, which took place in October 2018 at CeTA (Audiovisual Technology Center) in Wroclaw, Poland. puntoyrayafestival.com | facebook/puntoyrayafestival

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!
