Alternative Screen

Sneak Preview! DARK ARC, 2005, 99 min. Dan Zukovic follows up his tremendous 1998 debut, THE LAST BIG THING, with a mysterious comedy about love, lust, art and the power of the charged image (those that burn into your mind’s eye) that is equal parts film noir intrigue, pop culture send-up, brain-teaser and visual feast. "A bizarre blend of art, sex and opium... plays like a candy-colored version of David Lynch." -- IFC News. DARK ARC is a bizarre story about Viscount Laris (Dan Zukovic), an eccentric, modern day dandy who gets off playing "visual games" to feed his obsession with art and visual imagery. His muse, a striking cosmetologist, Juxta (Sarah Strange) falls under Viscount's idiosyncratic influence. Together they plot to influence the behavior of Ed Smith (Kurt Max Runte), a harmless, complacent graphic designer, through a meticulously planned series of staged visual events. Unaware that the events are manufactured, Smith becomes obsessed with Juxta, the mysterious woman he associates with these 'charged images.' A love triangle develops and Viscount sets in motion a climactic confrontation wherein all three characters come together one final time, to create the penultimate 'charged image.'

"Absolutely brilliant... a comedy disguised as pretentious art trash...truly and completely different... something you've never tasted before." - Eric Campos, Filmthreat.com. Film Threat named DARK ARC one of the top 10 Indies to look out for in 2006. Discussion to follow with writer/director/actor Dan Zukovic.

LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF, 2003, 169 min. Dir. Thom Andersen. A must see for Los Angeles history buffs and cinema enthusiasts who will marvel at the hundreds of archival and film clips revealing an almost secret history of the City of Angels! "This cinematic essay focuses on the discrepancy between the lived-in urban reality of Los Angeles and its various century-deep cinematic mythologies, the movie is about more than just what the movies get wrong. It’s about the way the imaginary space of cinema intrudes upon the actual space of our lives, so that the L.A. of the movies becomes a kind of separate urban reality unto itself." -- Toronto Star. Voted the Best Documentary of 2004 by the Village Voice and on LA Times Critic Kenneth Turan’s top 10 films of the year (2005).

 

Wednesday, April 26 – 7:30 PM [Spielberg] RED HOLLYWOOD, 1995, 118 min. Thom Andersen (LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF), in collaboration with cultural/film theorist and historian, Noel Burch, directed this hard-to-see documentary, using the allegations by Senator Joseph McCarthy and the House of Un-American Activities Committee to search out progressive thinking and/or left-leaning politics in the films of the 1930’s and 1940’s. With interviews and footage of blacklistees Paul Jarrico, Alfred Lewis Levitt, Abraham Polonsky, et. al., and illustrative film clips from the movies themselves. Director Thom Anderson will appear for discussion following the film.
