||NEW OTHERZINE #32 IS LIVE NOW, FOR Fall '17!|
|Welcome to our website for our ongoing series of experimental cinema in San Francisco. We show films every Saturday at ATA Gallery, 992 Valencia (@ 21st). Showtime 8:30pm, admission* $7.|
| NOV25: TRUMP/PUTIN + POITRAS + MANNING + KHALIL + PIÑATA!|
A communal Trump-piñata-pounding (!) joins the two hemispheres of this double-header—powerful and poetic film commentaries, sounding out contemporary issues in both the international relations sphere and in the Americas. The opening “global” set premieres Max (Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer) Pozdorovkin’s hilarious Our New President, Laura Poitras’ chilling Project X, and Elizabeth Lo’s soul-shattering Hotel 22, plus briefs by Kelly Gallagher and Dominic Gagnon. Post-piñata, the program rallies under the No-Thanks Giving rubric, with four enlightened cine-essays by and on Native Americans: Caitlin Manning’s (in person) Zapatista-centered Dispatches from Mexico, Jackson Polys & Adam and Zach (Inaate/Se) Khalil’s Violence of a Society without Secrets, Sky Hopinka’s Visions of an Island, and Bochay Drum’s anti-DAPL Spotlights and Bonfires. Come early for Thad Povey and the Goat Family's partisan busking and free Cuban cigars!
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!
