Early Monthly Segments, a monthly series dedicated to experimental film, brings us another great program this coming Monday, June 11, 2012.
This month, they’ll be screening a very rare print of Marie Menken‘s unfinished The Gravediggers of Guadix (1961). While making another film in Spain in the late 1950s, Menken spent some time with a group of monks in the village of Guadix, shooting several unedited rolls of film documenting their unique rituals. Menken, one of the earliest practitioners of personal filmmaking, was an important influence on many filmmakers, including Stan Brakhage and Ute Aurand.
Also on offer is a 16mm print of OH! die vier Jahreszeiten (1988), from German filmmakers Ute Aurand and Ulrike Pfeiffer. The film features their adventures during four seasons in Berlin, Moscow, Paris, and London. They’ve created a playful and “exuberant ode to the changing of seasons.”
It all takes place at the Gladstone Hotel, Art Bar (1214 Queen Street West) at 8:00 pm on Monday, June 11, 2012. The suggested donation is only $5. For more information, please visit their website.
