The Plague Dogs

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

7:30pm

We advise you to leave the kids (and pets) at home for this one, as this rarely-screened masterpiece of “adult” animation is a disturbingly poignant experience you’ll not soon forget. A fascinating follow-up to 1978’s landmark Watership Down, The Plague Dogs can be bleak, but is totally absorbing in the way that any pulse-pounding, life-or-death human (or anthropomorphized) drama can be. Determined to escape the confines of an evil laboratory, two dogs make a flight for freedom into the rugged hills. When they accidentally break a vial used by plague researchers on their way out, the human world launches the deadliest hunt. Here is a world where animals are not a blank slate for our ideals and morality, but are the direct expression of the animals themselves; Humanity is the bad guy, and the audience is not left off the hook. The film’s starkness is lent a further heaviosity by top-tier British voice talents like John Hurt, Nigel Hawthorne, Judy Geeson and Patrick Stewart. With a beautifully lifelike visual style (Pixar’s Brad Bird was among the film’s animation crew), this rare 35mm presentation will leave you astounded.

Dir. Martin Rosen, 1982, 35mm, 103 min. - See more at: http://www.cinefamily.org/films/special-events-february-2015/#sthash.DOh...

An Image / Still Life - As You See: Harun Farocki Film Series

Goethe-Institut

5750 Wilshire Blvd. Suite 100, Los Angeles, CA 90036

7:00pm

Ein Bild (An Image) / Stilleben (Still Life) German with English subtitles Free Admission, RSVP needed Ein Bild (An Image) Four days spent in a studio working on a centerfold photo for Playboy magazine provided the subject matter for my film. The magazine itself deals with culture, cars, a certain lifestyle. Maybe all those trappings are only there to cover up the naked woman. Maybe it’s like with a paper-doll. The naked woman in the middle is a sun around which a system revolves: of culture, of business, of living! (It’s impossible to either look or film into the sun.) One can well imagine that the people creating such a picture, the gravity of which is supposed to hold all that, perform their task with as much care, seriousness, a responsibility as if they were splitting uranium. www.farocki-film.de Stilleben (Still Life) Classic 16th and 17th century still life paintings are edited together with documentary footage from photographic studios of the 1990s; a juxtaposition of paintings and advertising. Images of money, cheese and beer are shown painted down to the last detail and meticulously staged to evoke consumer greed. Farockis film tracks the similarities and differences of two kinds of portrayals, in which goods and things almost appear as fetish objects. Free Admission, RSVP needed Info: +1 323 5253388 [email protected]

High Maintenance (sneak preview hosted by Doug Benson)

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

7:30pm

“Each episode offers an intimate vantage on someone’s world, projects our fantasy of what happens when that lady with the weird hair and the sad eyes, who we’ve been staring at since she got on the train in midtown, steps off at West Fourth Street and disappears into oblivion.” — Los Angeles Review of Books

Our first idea to title this Cinefamily show was How To Do A Web Series RIGHT: “High Maintenance”, for everything about this juicy collection of episodic shorts has been on-point from the get-go. Vimeo’s first original joint, High Maintenance tracks a weed dealer’s different house calls misadventures amongst an intimate, frequently nutz circle of Big Apple eccentrics. Each crystalline episode drops us into a different, harried, perfectly-realized version of someone we know — but a heightened ideal of that character sketch. Doug Benson’s a fan of the show too; join us for a special taping of his “Doug Loves Movies” podcast with the creators of the show, a sneak peak of High Maintenance’s latest season, and a Q&A session with the creators!
