Screening begins at 8:00 pm.

All proceeds go to benefit the Atlanta Day Shelter for Women & Children and the Boys and Girls Club of Atlanta.

Project Descriptions:
A Place of Hope
The Atlanta Day Shelter serves women and children by helping them renew hope, gain stability, and empower themselves to leave shelter life behind and prosper in the community.

Displaced in Atlanta
A glimpse into the memories of a family that experienced Katrina together. You will hear their stories of displacement and resettlement, horror and loss. This film gives a voice to one family that is a part of a much larger community. The community of Katrina victims displaced by Katrina into the Atlanta community.

A peak into the life of Atlanta's Old Fourth Ward. It is a collection of old memories and new hopes for the neighborhood.

A creative collaboration with the Boys and Girls Club of Atlanta, emphasizing the unique and often powerful voice of our youth through visual and written expression.

Hendrix Elementary students are learning in a very unique way. Taught in both English and Spanish, the kids are learning what it means to become truly Unidos.

Atlanta Graffiti
The portrayal of graffiti offers the public a more rounded view of an expressionistic form that ranges from plagues on our community to more the accepted mainstream and in-between.

Dan Melchoir

Dan Melchior is a musician/artist (artist/musician?) from London, England who now lives in Durham, NC. He has appeared on over 30 commercially released recordings, and continues to produce several new recordings every year.

Melchior favours a rough hewn and immediate approach in all his artistic endeavours, and the canvasses he produces are perhaps the clearest indication of this. Over the last 2 years or so (since having the space to do so) he has been working solidly and consistently on his painting and has produced a sizeable body of work. Looking to the work of Philip Guston, Willem de Kooning and Max Beckmann (amongst others) as touchstones, Melchior feels that he's finally managed to produce work free of the restrictions that he found imposed on him (and that he subsequently internalised) during his time at various art schools in the UK.

Melchior hopes that his work conveys a sense of joy and wonder at the process of actually putting paint on canvas, and also manages to impart a sense of humour at odds with the often very solemn and emotionally uptight work that tends to pre dominate in high art circles today.

*Sliding Scale – No One Turned Away*

Sacred Geometry Atlanta will be filming a multimedia presentation by Randall Carlson, where he will unveil the origins of the numerical patterns upon which our current systems of time and spatial measurement are founded. The key to grasping these cosmic design templates is a canon of sacred numbers that not only reflected the Ancients’ understanding of space and time, but also the cyclical nature of cataclysm on Earth.

This DVD will enable Randall’s work to reach a global audience, and help to fulfill his aspiration “to affect a revival of lost knowledge towards the goal of creating a new world based upon universal principles of harmony, freedom, and spiritual evolution.”

We appreciate any support towards this vital enterprise.

GSU Film/Video graduate students spend their second year producing their
own 8-10 minute film, with classmates crewing each shoot. These 5 movies
are the culmination of these year-long projects, and reflect the diversity
of their creators: a story of colonization and betrayl in 19th century
Africa; a film within a film that challenges notions of
participant-spectatorship; the impossibility of male intimacy when gender
and sexuality fuse; the rise of a serial killer propelled by fashion; the
negotiation of secrecy in an intimate female-female connection. There's
gotta be something here that you'll enjoy.

Please join us for the debut screening, followed by a Q&A.

SOURDOUGH PHILOSOPHY CABARET

The Sourdough Philosophy Cabaret offers a great variety of numbers from B & P's earliest and newest productions, from the 47 year old King Story to the latest financial sensation: a public money execution, from the sweet notes of the Radical Vermont Sheep-Note Choir to a spicy Federal Cookbook farce, to the sounds of The Sourdough Brass Band and The Philosophy String and Accordion Ensemble

A SHORT HISTORY OF BREAD & PUPPET THEATER

The Bread & Puppet Theater was founded in 1963 by Peter Schumann on New York City’s Lower East Side. Besides rod-puppet and hand-puppet shows for children, the concerns of the first productions were rents, rats, police and other problems of that neighborhood. More complex theater pieces, in which sculpture, music, dance and language were equal partners, followed. The puppets grew bigger and bigger. Annual presentations for Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving and Memorial Day often included children and adults from the community as participants. Many performances were done in the street. During the Vietnam War, Bread & Puppet staged block-long precessions involving hundreds of people.

In 1970 Bread & Puppet moved to Vermont as theater-in-residence at Goddard College, combining puppetry with gardening and bread baking in a serious way, learning to live in the countryside and letting itself be influenced by the experience.

In 1974 the Theater moved to a farm in Glover in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. The 140-year-old hay barn was transformed into a museum for veteran puppets. Our Domestic Resurrection Circus, a two-day outdoor festival of puppetry shows, was presented annually through 1998.

The company makes its income from touring new and old productions on the American continent and abroad and from the sales of Bread & Puppet Press’s posters and publications. The traveling puppet shows range from tightly composed theater pieces presented by members of the company, to extensive outdoor pageants which require the participation of many volunteers.

Bread & Puppet is one of the oldest, nonprofit, self-supporting theatrical companies in this country.

"Atlanta's best film series" - Creative Loafing on Film Love

Frequent Small Meals presents

FILM LOVE
A HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

In celebration of Mother’s Day, a program of vintage short films on motherhood, from America to Bali


The Fischer family, 1964

On Mother’s Day 2009, the Film Love series presents a selection of works about motherhood and the way it is filmed, from America to Bali, by artists, anthropologists, and documentarians.

The evening centers on Richard Leacock’s 1963 classic A Happy Mother’s Day, about the birth of the Fischer quintuplets in Aberdeen, South Dakota. The film is both a witty portrayal of the civic frenzy surrounding the event and a portrait of mother Mary Ann Fischer, whose resistance to exploitation and sly, in-on-the-joke persona give the film its moral and emotional center. The film was rejected by its sponsor, and re-edited by ABC television into a more traditional representation of small-town America. The two versions present a veritable case study in how the same imagery can be used to create two different versions of an event, and two different visions of motherhood in America. We will screen both Leacock’s film and ABC’s re-edited version. Accompanying is David Ellsworth’s short video Super-8 Mom, in which the artist overlays his mother’s home movie footage from the early 1970s with her present-day voice.

In stark contrast to American imagery of birth and motherhood are the films of famed anthropologist Margaret Mead. The powerful and surprising First Days in the Life of a New Guinea Baby documents the eventful first hour after birth of an infant in the Iatmul tribe. The delightful Bathing Babies in Three Cultures shows the fascinating differences in this daily ritual between the United States, New Guinea, and Bali.

PROGRAM
A Happy Mother’s Day (Richard Leacock with Joyce Chopra, 1963), 26 minutes
The Fischer Quintuplets (ABC-TV, 1963), 30 minutes
Super-8 Mom (David Ellsworth, 2002), 5 minutes
Bathing Babies in Three Cultures (Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson, 1930s/1954), 14 minutes
First Days in the Life of a New Guinea Baby (Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson, 1930s/1952), 14 minutes
all works screened on video

A HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY is a Film Love event. The Film Love series provides access to rare but important films, and seeks to increase awareness of the rich history of experimental and avant-garde film. The series is curated and hosted by Andy Ditzler for Frequent Small Meals. Film Love was voted Best Film Series in Atlanta by the critics of Creative Loafing in 2006.

Cross Cultural Dance Company and guests May 19, 2009
9:00PM - - -
Price:  $5
Abandoned By The Stars, The Subliminator, and The Cross Cultural Dance Company.

ABANDONED BY THE STARS is the solo musical project of multi-media artist V. Paganus.
In lieu of band mates, V has turned to multi-track recording devices, solo instrumentation and loops of self-made samples to create a sound which could be described as "Melancholy Pop with rare dashes of 'World Beat' teased in here and there."
At times Folksy and Post-Punk and sometimes darkly electronic, melodies with lyrics full of pathos and hate abound, having been wrought from years of both firsthand experience and from forays into dreams of the brain at dis-ease.

http://www.myspace.com/abandonedbythestars



THE CROSS CULTURAL DANCE COMPANY, based in Atlanta GA, is a performance troupe focusing on World Dance. The troupe performed together for over a year at festivals, conventions, clubs and restaurants before taking a name in 2008. Kira Lang the instructor/director, a former break dancer, has been studying world dances with local and international instructors for over 7 years. The CCDC has a strong basis in American Tribal Belly Dance and blends other modern, folkloric and classical dances from all over the globe. With Eclectic music, costuming and props The CCDC is a kaleidescope of world tribal with an urban edge. http://crossculturaldance.com/


THE SUBLIMINATOR:
Atlanta's Serson Brannen, veteran spacerocker, started the Subliminator project in '05. After years as a member of Spaceseed he is now a solo act and was immediately sighned to Atlanta's Scared records. "Recalibrated" his first release for the label achieved critical acclaim and another, "Rake" (Quick,what's a rake?) is out now. He has collected two of Creative Loafing's Best of Atlanta awards in '06 and '07. Relentless touring (Who else do you know that tours by motorcycle?) has kept him in the public eye and he has been taking the avant-garde/underground scene by storm. Combining vocals and theremins his sound is unique, original,eclectic, hard edged and brings rock n' roll flash to dark sonic art.

still from Barbara Hammer's Dyketactics (1974)

NOTE EARLY START TIME - Films will begin promptly at 7:00 PM!

In the 1970s, San Francisco became an international vanguard of the Gay Liberation movement. In campy, anarchic film and theater works and onscreen explorations of their own sexual experience, gay and lesbian filmmakers in 1970s San Francisco fused politics, sex, and art, and created a body of work that is as radical as it is entertaining. As part of the five-day arts festival Mondo Homo, Film Love presents two nights of rare films from a legendary time and place in queer history.

Part 1: Bodies - the sexual revolution on screen
Ranging from tender to political to obsessed, each of these San Francisco filmmakers represents sex on screen as a revolutionary act. Barbara Hammer’s pioneer 70s films brought explicit lesbian sexuality to audiences, while Curt McDowell’s direct, brutally frank filmmaking style culminates in Loads, a notorious filmed diary of his anonymous sexual encounters, and Ronnie, a humorous and affecting portrait of a straight hustler who will switch teams if the money's right. Coni Beeson’s Holding documents the intimacy of a young lesbian couple at the beginning of the Women’s Movement, while Michael Wallin’s The Place Between Our Bodies explores the filmmaker’s search for emotional (and sexual) connection in the cruising atmosphere of mid-70s San Francisco.

NOTE: This program contains graphic imagery.

Dyketactics (Barbara Hammer, 1974) 4 minutes, 16mm
Ronnie (Curt McDowell, 1972) 7 minutes, 16mm screened on video

Working girls: Rumi and John McGowan in Elevator Girls in Bondage (1972)

NOTE EARLY START TIME - Films will begin promptly at 7:00 PM!

In the 1970s, San Francisco became an international vanguard of the Gay Liberation movement. In campy, anarchic film and theater works and onscreen explorations of their own sexual experience, gay and lesbian filmmakers in 1970s San Francisco fused politics, sex, and art, and created a body of work that is as radical as it is entertaining. As part of the five-day arts festival Mondo Homo, Film Love presents two nights of rare films from a legendary time and place in queer history.

Part 2 - THE COCKETTES: Midnight at the Palace
Pansexual, psychedelic, and covered in glitter, the fabulous Cockettes were a cross between hippie commune, radical political theater troupe, and the best secondhand costume department in the world. Only 1970 San Francisco could have produced them. Performing and partying along with the troupe were John Waters superstar Divine and future disco diva Sylvester. Back in the spotlight as the subject of a celebrated 2002 documentary, the Cockettes' reputation as the anarchic heart of Gay Liberation (and as a fashion influence!) continues to grow.

This program features extremely rare short films from the private collection of original troupe member and Cockette archivist Rumi, along with the classic “Tricia's Wedding” in a new 16mm print.

In Tree, we see the twenty-year-old future Cockettes founder Hibiscus, along with Rumi in a naked, comic dance at Land’s End. Palace, the only known film made during an actual Cockettes performance, documents the backstage and onstage goings-on at the group’s only Halloween show, Les Ghouls.

The hilarious and highly politically incorrect Tricia’s Wedding is the Cockettes at their outrageous best. The 1971 White House nuptials of Richard Nixon’s daughter provided perfect satirical fodder for the group. Characters include Mick Jagger, Indira Gandhi, Mamie Eisenhower, and Prince Charles. Disco diva Sylvester portrays Coretta Scott King. Eartha Kitt spikes the White House punch with LSD, and the resulting group orgy does not disappoint. Meanwhile, Marxist revolutionaries, along with perverts of various stripes, are skewered with inspired silliness in the political/sexual satire Elevator Girls in Bondage. In her greatest role, Cockette Rumi leads a striking group of hotel workers, "spouting a surreal mix of folk songs and Marxist maxims."

NOTE: This program contains graphic imagery and radical ideas.

Jae is a Norway-based artist. Jæ's melancholy indie-folk centers around her songwriting; warm, flowing songs and eerie, far lines. Her texts
revolve around travellings, cultures and relations, asking both personal and general contemporary questions.

C.J. Boyd creates waves of bass loops and constant improvisational
exploration, garnished with sparse vocals and harmonica drones.

www.myspace.com/cjboyd




Found Objects: Arianna Sykes purrs over effortlessly loose acoustic jams; accompanied by a sparse backing band consisting mainly of one Melissa Lonely(of the Kiwis) and other superstars of the New Weird South. Think Hunky Dory era Bowie as filtered through Neil Young's "Tonight's the Night" album and you're close. The room is just as much an instrument as the guitar.

The Humanization Quartet (from Portugal & Dallas) May 29, 2009
9:00PM - - -
Price:  $7


Named as 2008's 'Portuguese Jazz Record of the Year' by leading Portuguese jazz magazine, Jazz.PT. The Humanization 4tet is led by Lisbon guitarist Luis Lopes & features tenor saxophonist Rodrigo Amado, as well as Dallas, TX brothers, Aaron Gonzalez on bass and Stefan Gonzalez on drums.

"A blindfold test might place this music somewhere inside today's Chicago sound. Lopes' writing and his quartet could almost be mistaken for a Jeff Parker-meets-Ken Vandermark, as the tenor saxophone/guitar interaction of Rodrigo Amado and Lopes orients you into the free/composed styles heard in the windy city of jazz. The opening "Cristadingo" verifies this with a muscular workout, Amado blowing heavy notes over Lopes' sinewy playing. The saxophonist has been gaining quite a reputation for his work in the Lisbon Improvisation Players and with players like Ken Filiano, Steve Swell, Joe Giardullo and Paal Nilssen-Love."
