Jan. 20
8:00 p.m.
Echo Park Film Center
1200 N. Alvarado Street (@ Sunset Blvd)
Los Angeles, CA

Hosted by: Amanda Movlai

Amanda Movlai, a Los Angeles-based experimental filmmaker and performance artist, will screen several of her short films, which will be accompanied by a live soundtrack performed by local musicians. The films are actually shot on film, both Super 8 and 16mm. The filmmaker will be in attendance.

While the full lineup of films screening at this event has not been released, one of them will be at least I Am the Fastest Man, an eight-minute Super 8 film about a track & field star dreaming about his bygone days of glory. (Image below)

According to the filmmaker’s official website, her films explore relationships between place, memory and time, reminisces of the way we remember the places we’ve been even if we’ve never been there before. Her films attempt to capture the tone of these places so that our memory can lead us back to them.

You can visit her official website, Field Note Films, to find more info on the filmmaker, look at film stills and watch clips.
