THE SPACES BETWEEN COUNTRIES

Thursday May 10 at 8 PM

Doors 7:30 pm; $5 admission.

Produced by EXcinema in Seattle, The Spaces Between Countries: Mexico & USA is an exquisite corpse with twenty filmmakers from both countries, and some who live, or lived in both. Each filmmaker addresses life in their surroundings and many include events of the past year. There’s crowds on both US coasts under the path of the eclipse, independent venders making tortillas and thread from scratch, a beach full of pelicans, the aftermath of earthquakes in Mexico, and hurricanes and forrest fires in the US. There’s police in the streets, resistance marches, real estate scammers, and there’s the housing crisis affecting most of us. This and much more.

Filmmakers are: Brenda Avila, Ivan Avila, Rafael Balboa, Anthony Buchanan, Brenda Contreras, Sasha Water Freyer, Ivonne Fuentes,  Elijah Hasan, Dalia Huerta, Salise Hughes, Pedro Jimenez, Pam Minty, Artemio Narro, Eric Ostrowski, Elena Pardo, Chloe Reyes, Luke Seiczek, Bruno Varela, Dustin Zemel, Robert Zverina.

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!
