Dog Day Evening curated by Mark Street.

Join us by the whir of the 16mm projector, and allow the siren of optical sound draw you in. These films allow you glimpses of the sublime, while opening a psychic trapdoor underneath your hot feet. Free admission to the first guest who explains what sex change operations have to do with the Sidney Lumet film Dog Day Afternoon.

Alchemist madman Josh Lewis presents PILLAGER

2011/ 16mm / B&W / optical sound / 3:30 min. Josh was a lab worker by day and an experimental artist after dark (and in the dark). His day job has changed, but this gem from his days in the trenches graces the screen.

One half of the team who INVENTED the term “Microcinema” (along with Rebecca Barten), David Sherman is a filmmaker, curator, educator and gallery maestro who always makes trouble wherever he is. Currently residing in bordertown Tucson Arizona, David sends TUNING THE SLEEPING MACHINE 1996/16mm/Color/optical sound/13 minutes. The film straddles the border between abstraction and sexual menace.

Local heroine Jenn Reeves, whose films inhabit a dense audio video structure that is all their own unspools TRAINS ARE FOR DREAMING 2009, 16mm, 7 minutes. We enter the world of elegy and heartfelt homage to life lived lovingly in these few transformative minutes.

Neighborhood gadfly Mark Street shows SWEEP, 1998. 16mm, color, sound, 7 minutes, Filmmaker and daughter romp around the neighborhood (yes THIS neighborhood) as time passes them both by.

Cinematic enchantress Lynne Sachs waves her wand and POOF Photograph of Wind (2001) 16mm, color & b/w, 4 min appears. Youth, performance, and just a bit of a breeze are lensed in this sublime rabbit pulled out of a hat.

The great Bruce Conner needs no introduction. This beat, prankster, found footage genius, montage magus beams REPORT, 1967,16mm, b&w, sound, 13 minutes. A sad, wry, terrifying, witty look at JFK’s assassination.

TRT 50 minutes
