Dear Radical Visionaries,

Three film programs have been scheduled for March, and an additional film or two may be added near the month?s end. Please check the links below for more information and to RSVP.


What: Shoot Shoot Shoot: British avant-garde films of the 1970s
When: Tuesday, March 11, 6:30
Details: An unusual program of short British avant-garde films produced by the experimental London Film-maker's Co-operative in the early 1970s. Filmmakers Stephen Dwoskin, Gill Eatherley, Peter Gidal, Malcolm Le Grice, William Raban, John Smith, and Chris Welsby investigate "language, landscape, and the human body" in order to discover the essential properties of the film medium itself.

What: The Time We Killed (with director Jennifer Reeves in person)
When: Tuesday, March 18, 6:30
Details: "Shot in striking high-contrast black and white, 'The Time We Killed' is a captivating, free-associative tale of an agoraphobic writer fearfully trapped in her Brooklyn apartment on 9/11. A collaboration with poet Lisa Jarnot, who appears on screen in nearly every frame (and whose poetry is featured), the film is a claustrophobic exploration of contemporary subjectivity and the relationship between internal and external reality, 'a cinematic fugue of lost lovers, found memories and televised invasions.'" The Time We Killed" will be preceded by one of Reeves' earliest films, "Elations In Negative," and both films will be introduced by the director herself.

What: Last Year at Marienbad
When: Friday, March 21, 8:00
Details: This radical, ravishingly beautiful 1961 film by Alain Resnais (with screenplay by Allain Robbe-Grillet) presents "a seductive tale of the idle rich, set at a lavish European spa. A handsome stranger tries to convince a lovely young woman that they had a passionate affair a year ago 'perhaps at Marienbad,' but she claims not to remember him. He haunts her mind with images by mixing memory and fantasy, fear and desire." One of the most controversial and influential films ever made.
