Siddhartha Mukherjee - The Gene

Skirball Cultural Center

2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90049

8:00pm

The gene is the fundamental unit of heredity and the basic unit of all biological information. It also is, according to Pulitzer Prizewinning author Siddhartha Mukherjee (The Emperor of All Maladies), one of the most dangerous ideas in the history of science. Join Mukherjee, author of the new book The Gene: An Intimate History, to explore the possibilitiesand perilsof gene manipulation. Technology and knowledge of genes have allowed us to manipulate organisms and their genetic materials with dexterity and powernot only in test tubes, but inside actual human cells. Will genetics allow us to change our very behavior, what it means to be human, and our own fates? Books available for purchase. A Q&A and book signing follow the program.

Eyes of Fire

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

9:30pm

The woods of early American settlers were a territory of savage darkness:the home of the devil and mysteriously foreboding. Like the untamed American continent itself, the woods were an unknowable place,and still remain ripe for projections of fantasy and horror (see: The Witch). Surrealist photographer (and first time filmmaker) Avery Crounse’s Eyes of Fire seizes the psychology of these early settlers in this poor-man’s-punk take on the supernatural battle between good and evil, rife with impressively fantastical set pieces—from trees with faces and a mysterious naked forest-dwelling sect to rains of skulls and bones—all swung on a shoestring budget. ALL OF THEM WITCHES proudly resurrects this fierce, DIY horror flick, excavated from several realms beyond the consciousness of even the committed cult-film lover, for your late-night enjoyment.
Dir. Avery Crounse, 1983, 35mm, 90 min.
