LA AIR invites local artists to utilize EPFC resources in creating and premiering new, experimental, documentary, and personal work over a two-month period. EPFC’s fall 2018 LA AIR artist is Carmina Escobar.
Marissa Chibas and John Hawk will screen their most recent dark comedy short, Zohra, in which an aging actress struggles with playing the role of an old nurse in an experimental film version of Medea. Zohra was integrated into a play, The Second Woman, which ran at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles for a month in 2016. This screening will also include three other previous shorts including Clara’s Los Angeles which was presented at REDCAT, and the San Diego Latino Film Festival, and Nostalgia, which was part of an installation just presented in Havana, Cuba in April of 2017. The two artists, who are both faculty members at CalArts, have collaborated over the past five years on these films with Chibas directing, writing, and acting, and Hawk serving as the director of photography, colorist and sound mixer as well as a general artistic consultant. The pieces have a political undertone and are often comedic while addressing a range of topics from racism and sexism to getting old, and Latin American revolutionary politics. FILMMAKERS IN ATTENDANCE!
This screening is made possible thanks to a grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

We are excited and delighted to host our friends from Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain who are touring the US and Mexico with the Festival Internacional e itinerante de video-arte feminista. The objective is to talk about feminism - from art, from humor, from the everyday, from the margins, to make this festival a tool capable of questioning the social and cultural meaning of artistic practices as generators of critical thinking.”
