Friday, February 7 at 8 PM
Doors 7:30 pm; LA Filmforum pricing in effect for this event.
Renowned filmmaker Larry Gottheim returns to Los Angeles Filmforum with a couple of classic films and the LA premieres of two new digital works. Larry Gottheim taught film-making and cinema aesthetics at Binghamton University until 1998. This was a program he started in the late 1960’s, the first regular undergraduate program dealing with film as a personal art. His early silent films such as FOG LINE, DOORWAY, BARN RUSHES are widely known. In the 1970’s he made ELECTIVE AFFINITIES, a set of 4 long films that explore complex relationships between sound and image. While still formal and concerned with sound and image, some later films include material that would ordinarily be seen in a documentary mode (MACHETE GILETTE…. MAMA.) His many years’ involvement with Vodou in Haiti led to a video work CHANTS AND DANCES FOR HAND. His most recent film KNOT/NOT is a complex web of material tied together by repetition and superimposition. His works have been included in numerous museums, festivals and other venues throughout the world. https://www.larrygottheimfilms.com/ Filmforum ticket pricing in effect for this event.
