    Documentary Frontiers

    Filmmaker in At tendance

    (Pip Chodorov, France, English and French w/ Eng st., 82 min, video, 2010)

    Filmmaker and film activist Pip Ch odorov offers this affectionate overview of some of the leading figures of 20th century experimental film. Narrating in a personal and plainspoken man ner, Chodorov combines clips and even films in their entirety with convers ations with such luminaries as Hans Richter, Robert Breer, Michael Snow, Peter Kubelka and Stan Brakhage in his final recorded interview. The film shows how avant-garde filmmakers were often left adrift, not accepted by t he art world or the commercial film industry. Warm and inspiring, Chodorov ’s film is part essay and part loving tribute.< /p>

    TCHOUPITOULAS

    Thursday, February 07, 2013   |   8:00pm - 9:30pm

    Union Theatre

    (Bill Ross IV, Turner Ross, USA, 80mins, video, 2012)

    Structured like a classic city symphony, the film is a richly i mpressionistic evocation of the sights, sounds, and personalities of New Orleans at nighttime. Tchoupitoulas is a lyrical documentary that f ollows three adolescent brothers as they encounter a vibrant kaleidoscope o f dancers, musicians, hustlers, and revelers parading through the lampli t streets. Director Bill Ross captures a visual semi-inebriated haze, and emphasizing the overlapping of diverse sounds coming from different quarter s, transcends the sight and sound limitations of cinema. A portrait this v ivid is as close as you can get without actually being there yourself. < /p >

    Festival of Films in French and African American Film Se ries

    (Christian Faure, France, French w/ English subtitle s, 90 min, 2010)

    Based on the autobiographical novel by Marie Do, this French film tells the story of Maya, a half-black and illegitim ate child who finds refuge from social stigma in her passion for dance. Whi le her youth is deeply affected by the complexities of racism in 1960s Fran ce, in her adulthood as a professional dancer for New York’s Alvin Ailey t roupe, she must confront the either-or absolutism of black/white identity in America. In spite of such challenges, the film’s consistently upbeat to ne matches its heroine’s indomitable spirit.< /p>

    Donoma (The Day Has Come [Sioux])

    Djinn Carrénard, DVD, 101 min, France, 2011 (French)


    Under difficult odds, the very independent Haitian filmmaker Djinn Carrénard manages to pull off this irreverent, sensual, and garrulous ‘g uerilla’ film. Filmed on location in and around Paris, with a handheld cam era and a150 euro budget, Donoma showcases strong performances in a series of striking, trance-like vignettes. The stories of Analia, a teacher at a technical lycée on the verge of a breakdown, Chris, a sexually inexperi enced photographer who decides to proposition the first man she encounters in the metro, and Salma, an agnostic who encounters the supernatural, al l intersect in this edgy yet strangely romantic film. The director Abdellat if Kechiche ( La Faute à Voltaire , L’Esquive , La Graine et le mulet ) h as dubbed it a magnificently sensitive and intelligent film with a carefull y orchestrated plot.

    Official selection Acid, Cannes Festival 2 012

    African American Fi lm Series

    (Michael Roemer, USA, 95min, 35mm, 1964)


    Nothing but a Man is one of the most sensitive films abou t black life ever made in this country.

Du ff insists on being treated with respect, but his stance is personal rathe r than political. After he settles down in the town with Josie, he comes u p against white bosses who want to make sure he knows his place and black m en such as Josie's father who don't want to rock the boat for fear of losin g what little advantage they have. Nothing but a Man shows what it i s like to live without the basic necessities of dignity and respect -- what it's like to live under another man's thumb.< /p>

    Wildness: Artist Wu Tsang in person

    Thursday, February 21, 2013   |   8:00pm - 9:15pm

    Presented by Milwaukee LGBT Film/Video Festival

    (Wu Tsang, in English and Spanish w/ English subtitles, 73min., 2011)


    A documentary portrait of the Silver Platter, a his toric Los Angeles bar/haven for Latin/LGBT immigrant communities since 1963 , and a chronicle of what happens when a group of young artists (director Tsang among them) stage a weekly performance/dance party there. A portrait both lovely and wistful – the bar itself serves as a narrator – Wil dness is also a spirited investigation/memoir/manifesto about the struggles of making a space queer and of claiming a space you can understan d as safe. The celebrated artist Wu Tsang (Whitney Biennial 2012; 2012 New Museum Triennial) has made a heartfelt, engaging, and provocative work a bout cross-generational queer alliances; trans phobia and trans activism; migration and exile; finding a space of your own and creating platforms f or others.< /p>

    Stephen Dwoskin’s wor k has quietly blurred the perimeters of cinema for nearly half a century. T his first of two screenings features Dwoskin’s Dirty (1971) , Moment (1970) , and Behindert (1974) . These works reflect the piercingly immediate observations of their maker , as well as a passionate fascination with the female presence onscreen. D woskin’s relationships– the intimate, casual, and professional– produced numerous subjects for his films, making him among the earliest filmmakers to utilize such material with great emotional and sexual frankness.< /p>

    (Peter Nicks, USA, 81min., video, 2012)


    \ n

    With this very realistic and ultimately optimistic film, Peter Nicks creates what appears to be a chronicle of a day in the life of an overburde ned Oakland hospital's emergency room. In the end, he creates a film that reveals a collection of vibrant and self-respecting individuals who are bel eaguered, broke, and either scared or in pain. But the waiting room where all but the true emergency cases must bide their time for hours is more sa nctuary than purgatory, thanks mainly to Cynthia Y. Johnson, the unfailin gly kind CNA who manages it.< /p>

Sifting through a dense mountain of p hotos, letters, files, and objects, Goldfinger begins to uncover clues that seem to point to a greater mystery and soon a complicated family histo ry unfolds before his camera. An out-of-the-ordinary personal story that ex amines broad historical issues of societal memory and selective amnesia, o f what is hidden between generations and what is revealed. < /p>
