L.A. Filmforum & Cinefamily: Ere Erera Baleibu Icik Subua
Silent Movie Theater
611 N. Fairfax.
Los Angeles, CA
Catch a rarely screened, silent, hand-painted film from the ’70s, Ere Erera Baleibu Icik Subua, by Basque abstract artist Jose Antonio Sistiaga that will be accompanied by a live performance of reunited ’80s punk band Savage Republic.
Here’s a description of the film by critic Jonathan Rosenbaum:
Sistiaga’s strangely titled work … is different from the films of Stan Brakhage, who didn’t come to film from painting and had his own rhythm. […] [I]ts combination of color and 35-millimeter ‘scope (with about half an hour in black and white) yields the kind of spectacle one associates with musicals and [science fiction] epics.
