|MEDIA ARCHEOLOGY1||SEPT30: JOEL SCHLEMOWITZ' 78 RPM + VICTROLA DEMO +|
A stalwart figure on the New York A-G film scene, Joel visits the Coast for the first time to debut his knowing homage to the format that put pop music into the hands of the masses. His 16mm—occasionally hand-processed—feature is an inspired and inspiring love-letter to the gramophone and its discs, from their early days in the Teens/Twenties to the renewed fandom of contemporary enthusiasts. Interviews with cultural historians, collectors, and DJs are interwoven with generous samplings of vintage shellac sounds, from red-hot jazz to hillbilly ballads. Joel personally wind ups his own steampunk phonograph, inviting others to try, while complimentary 78s float freely through our time-warp.
OtherZine Issue #32, Spring 2017
“Cinemas of Resistance”We are very pleased to have with us two pioneering minds in film, luminaries of the Other Cinema: archivist/lecturer and maker, the one and only Rick Prelinger on access to archives, and feminist filmmaker/director Lynne Sachs on the Womens’ March on Washington 2017 and her personal compendium of “cinemas of resistance”.
We welcome two new contributors to this issue: writer/filmmaker Joseph Dwyer on Petri and Kluge, and curator/writer/filmmaker Shelby Shaw on contradictions in the image industry. Many thanks to all of our other wonderful, free-thinking contributors: Dan Browne, David Cox, Gerry Fialka and Will Nediger, Molly Hankwitz, Marc Olmsted, and Anna Spence. And, to everyone else who gave their time for interviews and commentary, many thanks!
