Millennium Film Workshop: Cinema 16 Benefit For Millennium
Millennium Film Workshop
66 East 4th St.

Hosted by: Cinema 16
The legendary Cinema 16 avant-garde film society is making a comeback. And it’s making a big splash in a big way with this special music and film performance as a benefit show for the Millennium Film Workshop.
Curator Molly Surno is pairing modern music acts with classic cinema for an innovative and once-in-a-lifetime auditory and visual experience. Performances at this event include:
- Maya Deren‘s groundbreaking avant-garde classic At Land will screen accompanied by a live performance by Forma, a minimal-synth trio out of Brooklyn.
- A Wild Roomer, one of the films directed by and starring silent film star Charley Bowers, will have a soundtrack by Nick Yulman, a Brooklyn-based sound artist.
- The 1976 Japanese puppet animated film Dojoji Temple will have musical accompaniment by Ablehearts, the performing name of Brooklyn sound and video artist Thomas Arsenault.
- Lastly, one of Busby Berkeley’s musical spectacles, Gold Diggers of 1935, will have music by singer and artist Joseph Keckler.
For a taste of this event, here is a segment from Dojoji Temple:
