Start out your October at the Echo Park Film Center

That’s right – October is coming soon! Time flies by when you’re having fun, so have some more fun and start out your October with some great local film screenings (we’re excited about the Irwin Swirnoff screening, he’s a fellow Pitzer College alumn!):

Saturday, October 2 – STOP AND GO RIDES AGAIN – 8:00 pm
Curated by San Francisco filmmaker and visual artist Sarah Klein, Stop & Go Rides Again follows a tremendously successful European and American tour of the stop-motion animation series Stop & Go. Catch a diverse collection of stop-motion animations by local and international artists as they unveil their most recent experiments in animation and comment on everything from the simple beauty of a rubber ball to the history of evolution. In these films, the artists and filmmakers delve into the labor-intensive process of stop-motion animation by manipulating everyday materials by hand—such as colored paper, photographs, toys, cardboard, fabric scraps and even facial hair—to create optical experiences, cardboard creatures, shadow puppets, and a handy how-to on making homemade hooch. Curator Sarah Klein in attendance!

Join us for a month of Spooky Sundays as the Filmmobile teams up with GHOULA to present Haunted Films In Haunted Places. Tonight’s film is Haunted Honeymoon, a 1986 comedy starring Gene Wilder, Gilda Radner, Dom Deluise and Jonathan Pryce. Ghost Hunters Of Urban Los Angeles (GHOULA) is a social club dedicated to the preservation of greater Los Angeles’ rich haunted history, and the promotion of this local lore through ghostly gatherings, events, and publications. More info. Call, email or follow @eEPFCfilmmobile on twitter for the screening location.

A collection of short films shot on super 8 by San Francico-based filmmaker and KUSF DJ and co-music director Irwin Swirnoff. Irwin’s films daydream into the sky & sun, finding small moments in the everyday that leave lasting impressions and allowing the viewer to drift in and out of their own memories, desires, longing and the pleasure that can come from being present in the everyday. His deep love of music has lead to collaborations with musicians who have created original score’s for his work, including Tomo Yasuda (Tussle, Coconut, Hey Willpower) and Preston Swirnoff (The Shining Path, Monosov/Swirnoff, Habitat Sound Sysytem). Also screening is a work by Los Angeles based filmmaker John Palmer. Filmmakers in attendance!

Friday, October 8 – CINEKINK PRESENTS: WAXIE MOON – 8:00 pm
What happens when a classically-trained dancer/actor decides to pursue the low-brow art of stripping? “Boylesque” sensation Waxie Moon takes the world of neo-burlesque by storm in this hilarious and thought provoking portrait of one artist’s unlikely journey. Directed by Wes Hurley, 2009, USA, 70 minutes. PLUS… other assorted CineKink favorites! More info.

The public is invited to this engaging Gerry Fialka interview of drummer John “Drumbo” French, who will address the metaphysics of his callings and the nitty-gritty of his craft. French revolutionized drumming with Captain Beefheart and recently authored the book entitled Beefheart: Through The Eyes Of Magic. The evening will kick off with Crow’s Milk, a rare 2003 Magic Band documentary. “Nearly twenty classic Beefheart compositions are rejuvenated on stage by five of the finest musicians who ever performed in The Magic Band. The playlist ranges from storming versions of such crowd-pleasers as ‘Moonlight On Vermont’ and ‘Big Eyed Beans From Venus’ to the intricate guitar work of ‘Evening Bell and the melodic ‘Alice In Blunderland’. Especially interesting are the instrumental versions of songs such as ‘I Wanna Find A Woman That’ll Hold My Big Toe Till I Have To Go’, ‘My Human Gets Me Blues’ and ‘Steal Softly Thru Snow’. Without Don’s voice, for Don is no longer performing, these compositions can be clearly heard as the mind and finger bending riddles they are.” More info.
