Price:  FREE
film screening: Crossing

Yong-soo lives in a small coal-mine village in North Korea with his wife and young son. Although living in extreme poverty, the family is happy just to be with each other. Then one day, Yong-soo’s pregnant wife becomes critically ill. Let alone medicine, Yong-soo can’t even find food for her in North Korea. So he secretly crosses the borders of China hoping to find the medicine for his wife. After many life threatening moments in China, Yong-soo is forced into South Korea, becoming an unwanted refugee prohibited to return to his family. Meanwhile, his wife passes away leaving their young son alone in desperation. With no one to turn to, his young son sets out to find his father not knowing where or how to find him.



If you are like us, the only thing you knew when you first heard about North Korea was that it had a lot of nuclear weapons. Well, it does, but that’s not the story we tell. Fellow human beings are starving to death, are severely punished, tortured or executed for political crimes, are escaping by the thousands only to be hunted down and sent back, are languishing in concentration camps, are forcibly aborted and abused if they return to the country pregnant, are sexually trafficked once they escape, and are violated and deprived of fundamental human rights.

Film Love: Andy Warhol's Poor Little Rich Girl April 24, 2009

FILM LOVE
Andy Warhol 5: Poor Little Rich Girl
featuring Edie Sedgwick

Film Love continues its exploration of the influential but rarely seen films of Andy Warhol


Edie Sedgwick in Poor Little Rich Girl

“beautiful, sad, unrehearsed…surpasses everything that the cinéma vérité has done till now” – Jonas Mekas, The Village Voice

During a brief but startlingly productive period in mid-1965, Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick forged one of cinema’s most intriguing and complex director/star relationships. Charismatic and mercurial, Sedgwick displayed vulnerability and resilience in equal measure on the screen. Entering his first great phase of sound filmmaking, Warhol devised a series of onscreen situations that challenged Sedgwick’s talents to the fullest, and revealed her remarkable personality, style, and beauty.

Poor Little Rich Girl was made as part of Warhol’s idea for a twenty-four hour film of a day in the life of Edie Sedgwick. It was his first sound movie to use no script at all, instead relying on Sedgwick’s natural vivaciousness and volubility to create this portrait of her on a typical morning. The resulting film is part documentary, part performance, part narrative – a unique, uncategorizable, and fascinating combination. Like all of Warhol’s films from this period, Poor Little Rich Girl has never been released on video in this country and can only be seen in its original 16mm film format.

PROGRAM
Poor Little Rich Girl (Andy Warhol, 1965) 66 minutes, 16mm, black & white, sound

DARRIN MARTIN: Inside Out:
solo and collaborative video works

including works created at
The Experimental Television Center
ARTIST IN ATTENDANCE
A Film Love event

Colorful, experimental film and video works on the subject of technology, ritual, and the body, introduced by the artist

"[Martin’s] videos make strange the relationships between physical cause and acoustic effect; we seem to witness someone trying out a new sensory faculty with caution and apprehension." –Artforum, April 2009

View Darrin Martin's Free to Be...You and Me remix featuring the original actors recreating their roles:


Film Love presents video artist Darrin Martin in person, hosting a program of colorful, experimental video works about technology, ritual, and the body. In particular, Martin’s experience with hearing loss and tinnitus inspired a series of poignant works which are both visually and sonically compelling. Other Turbans details a medical intervention into Martin’s hearing loss, involving a skull implant, which in turn inspires a sonic journey to the middle of Times Square. View Other Turbans at the artist's website. Monograph in Stereo recreates the artist’s changing relationship to sound and his discovery of the interdependence of the senses.

In other collaborative works, Martin further explores technology and the body. What If? features the radical body artists Stelarc and Orlan as part of a "fictional polyamorous romance" with two obscure Marvel superheroes: "the Scarlet Witch, a mutant superhero who has unlimited powers over probability, and the Vision, a 'synthezoid' whose mechanically fabricated body contains a human soul." Containing odd and humorous juxtapositions between the artists and their animated special-effects counterparts, What If? conjures an occult, pastoral, technological ritual.
