    Los Angeles Filmforum and The University Art Museum present -
    David Lamelas: Screening of Three Films

    In Person: David Lamelas

    David Lamelas began working in film in the late 1960s while living in London. Subsequently he created films in continental Europe, the United States, and Argentina. Place plays an integral role in his film work, as do the phenomenological experiences of time, space, and narrative. The University Art Museum presents three films by David Lamelas, including a rare 16 mm screening of Film 18 Paris IV 70 (People and Time-Paris), made with artist Daniel Buren, journalist Raúl Escari, and filmmaker Pierre Grinberg for the conceptual exhibition 18 Paris IV.70, curated by Michel Claura and Seth Siegelaub.

  • Ism, Ism, Ism presents Raúl Ruiz: Anthropology's Trembling Images

    By on

    From the 1920s on one can locate a fascinating, global convergence of avant-garde anthropology and experimental cinemas. In Latin America, this has often resulted in the manufacturing of social utopias and calls for radical figurations of the New Man, often by blurring nationalist and cosmopolitan fantasies dreamt up between Old and New Worlds. Chilean exile film artist and theorist Raúl Ruiz belongs uneasily and dissonantly to this tradition.

  • Cineinfinito #22: Bruce Wood (I)

    By on

    For a short period in the 1970s, then-Chicago-based filmmaker Bruce Wood created several amazing and intensely beautiful black and white abstract films. And then he stopped; not an uncommon story. In recent years growing attention has been paid to "forgotten" regional filmmakers around the country - and Chicago is no exception. Hidden gems are being rediscovered and shining again years after they were made.

  • Cineinfinito #21: Klaus Lutz

    By on

    The enigmatic work of Swiis filmmaker and artist Klaus Lutz (1940-2009) lies somewhere between the meditations of a recluse and the fantasies of a utopia visionary. With reminiscences of Georges Méliès, Chaplin, the Russian avant-gardes and the Bauhaus, with a touch of futurism, his films are mysterious mental landscapes that tell almost mythological stories about a man who lives in a strange, solitary world.

    This month DIM Cinema arranges a series of studio visits, beginning with Jem Cohen’s short portrait of the sculptor Ann Truitt (1921-2004) and ending with the ceremonial liberation of Jay DeFeo’s painting The White Rose, weighing over 2,300 pounds, from her second-floor studio in San Francisco.

  • Cosmovisions: Works by Scott Barley and Mikel Guillén

    By on

    The screening is programmed around the work of two artists who interweave phenomenological bodies and cosmic dimensions with a resolutely post-digital approach. Both draw their images and sounds from nature while combining them with non-realist post-production techniques. From these methods emerge image flows and acoustic rhythms that take the viewer to other worlds. The films screened were chosen so that this cosmic dimension in the interaction of visions of human and non-human bodies alongside those of affective nature becomes readily apparent.

  • Cineinfinito #28: Joanna Margaret Paul

    By on

    Joanna Margaret Paul (1955-2003) was a New Zealand artist who pioneered interdisciplinary practice, working prolifically across the mediums of film, poetry and painting. Often shot and edited in camera, her film work chronicled motherhood and domestic life (Task, Napkins), the worn traces of urban settlement (Port Chalmers Cycle) and the persistent presence of the natural world. Other works such as Sisterhood portrayed the life of other female artists identified with the 1970s womens movement in New Zealand.
