Underground Film Links: December 25, 2011

Merry Christmas from the¬†Underground Film Journal crew! Ok, that’s just me, but I wish everybody who is taking time out of their special day today a wonderful holiday and may all your dreams and ambitions come true.

So, since the birth of Jesus falls on a Sunday this year, here is an abbreviated list of links for you to enjoy. Give ’em a graze then go back and spend the rest of your time with your loved ones.

  1. First up, Ed Emshwiller was a ’60s underground filmmaker who doesn’t get a lot of press. He was also an accomplished illustrator whose works landed on the covers of many, many sci-fi magazines. Courtesy of Golden Age Comic Book Stories, here is a collection of alien-themed Santa Claus covers Emsh — as he was called — from Galaxy magazine in the 1950s.
  2. Here’s a touching story from Cineflyer about exiled Zimbabwe filmmaker Gertrude Hambira finding shelter in Winnipeg.
  3. Film Studies for Free gives its list of best film studies websites of 2011.
  4. The online magazine Experimental Conversations has posted up their Winter edition, with articles on Adolfas Mekas, Rouzbeh Rashidi and more.
  5. For my money, Roger Ebert is king of the zingers.
