Thursday October 25th: Editor’s Pick

9:30/10:15 at reRun Gastropub Theater [Program & Tix]

Shouting at the Screen
with Wyatt Cenac & Donwill

Blaxploitation cinema & live
neo-grindhouse heckling
“Interactive Screening Series”
9:30 doors / 10:15 show at reRun

“While Donwill of the underrated Hip-Hop group Tanya Morgan and comedian/correspondent Wyatt Cenac of The Daily Show might seem like the most unlikely pair to sway people away from their laptops and into movie theaters to catch a random film, they’re doing just that… Join them as they resurrect long-forgotten and super-rare Black cult flicks like The Thing With Two Heads, every month, plus a little sippy sippy and some food to boot. And it’s totally okay (as you might have guessed) to shout at the screen as long as it’s all in good fun.”
Aimstar, STARK

BONUS Thursday Editor’s Pick

7:00 at Museum of Arts and Design [Program & Tix]

 

Robert Breer (shorts)
1956-2003 | US | 50m
“Adults in the Dark:
Avant-Garde Animation”
7:00 at MAD

“A key member of the great generation of American avant-garde filmmakers and one of the most influential animators in history, [Breer] took many tricks of the cartoon trade–cycling, rotoscoping, limited animation–and turned them to his own pictorial ends. In a sense, he was an anti-animator, initially less concerned with smoothly continuous motion than with the rapid-fire succession of images that made such an illusion possible… Jonas Mekas praised the filmmaker’s ‘cinema of happiness,’ noting ‘we look at Breer’s work and we begin to smile.'”
J. Hoberman, The Village Voice
