MARGINS OF THE MAP
|OCT.20: GRETA SNIDER's 3-D + L.CAPLAN + A.COPPOLA + |
The third iteration of our of our Focus on Locus trifecta features two world premieres—exquisite expanded cinema/retinal rivalry pieces by the Mission’s own Greta Snider, plus a timely revival of her epochal 16mm diary Portland, train-hopping with Ivy McClelland and Iggy Scam! Lana Caplan breaks away from her SLO college gig to unspool a NorCal debut, Patches of Snow in July (Hawaii volcano), as well as her earlier Maelstroms (Mexico border). In his farewell appearence, long-lost ally Alex Coppola flies in from Philly to not only open the show, but close it as well, with his world-class World Music vinyl selections, set to an absolutely sublime sampler of mid-20C personal travelogues—Glimpses of the Global South, glorious Kodachrome shot in four sites, moving east around the planet—Hong Kong, Tahiti, the Andes, and the Amazon. As to marginal spaces in the US interior: Brea Weinreb debuts Framing History, a collective S8 remediation of home movies from Japanese internees in the Amache, Colorado camp. PLUS: Matt McCormick’s cautionary America Nutria, on a Southern mammal now munching on Coast rhizomes! ALSO a 16mm archival find of a first-person account of Antarctica! *$8
OtherZine Issue #33, Spring 2018
“PINK VS. ORANGE”This issue #33 of OTHERZINE incorporates the DNA of another San Francisco Bay-born radical publication, Bad Subjects. This is its issue #92 too, settled in to occupy some of Other Cinema’s comfy seats here until its own website undergoes reconstruction. We hold hands as the movie unspools.
Viva Pink, standing up against Orange! In the January 2017 Women’s March, Pink Pussy hats asserted female leadership and activism. The 2016 Presidential campaign of pinko (OK, socialist Democrat) Bernie Sanders excited and involved many voters, especially millennials. President Donald Trump, his hair and skin alternating between various shades of orange/lemon yellow/yogurt pink, has galvanized American and global opposition to his policies, his insults, his general demeanor. And as “Orange is the New Black” reminded us, incarceration is always a risk for the disobedient and, perhaps, dissident.
