  • Kenneth Anger restorations

    By on

    The UCLA (University of California - Los Angeles) Film and Television Archive has restored four of Anger's short films and premiered them last Saturday at the 13th Annual Festival of Preservation, held at the UCLA campus. The event had the attendance of Kenneth Anger who was interviewed for the occasion. The restored films are Fireworks (1947), Scorpio Rising (1963), Kustom Kar Kommandos (1965) and Rabbit's Moon (1950).


    The first three films, originally shot in 16mm haven been blown up to 35 mm in their restored versions. Rabbit's Moon (1950) was originally shot in 35 mm, but it was available until now in a reduced, 16mm version and by mistake, with the image flip-flopped left to right. The restored version brings back the original format and image orientation. The Archive has intentions to restore more of Anger's films, though no specific plans have been made yet.

    Con un poco de retraso nos hacemos eco del Avant-garde Blog-A-Thon, una curiosa iniciativa en la que durante el pasado 2 de Agosto, una serie de blogs más o menos relacionados con el cine, dedicaron sus posts al cine de vanguardia. El impulsor de este evento ha sido girish, en cuyo blog encontraréis un post sobre Joseph Cornell (al que dentro de poco dedicaremos un artículo).

    Os incluimos la lista de blogs participantes.

This center has pruduced about 14 films in the last three months, covering issues as religion, literature, nuclear energy and the eighties' Iran-Iraq war. What will the country that made the world's first animation make?
