Underground Film Links: July 18, 2010

By Mike Everleth ⋅ July 18, 2010

  1. Bob Moricz beats me to it and does a post on anti-underground film conditioning. Don’t resist the resistance! Plus, Bob reports on a what sounds like a fun event to be held in Portland, OR: The Video Gong Show.
  2. Cut & Paste has an interview with Rachel Bernsousa of the Revelation Perth International Film Festival. So, how’s the fest going this year? Great! Also, Cut & Paste has several reviews of films at Revelation.
  3. Can’t get to Washington, D.C. to see Phil Solomon’s film retrospective and American Falls installation? Genevieve Yue tells us what we’re missing on Moving Image Source.
  4. File this one under unique screening locations: It’s London’s new Portobello Pop Up Cinema microplex located under a freeway . (Via APEngine.)
  5. Frank’s Wild Lunch reviews the long-lost but recently unearthed The Sorrows of Dolores by Charles Ludlam, which just screened at Outfest.
  6. Making Light of It delves into the work of underappreciated digital media artist David Larcher, and finds several folks who do appreciate him.
  7. Landscape Suicide reprints an interview with Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet and continues to hang out in the forest. P.S. The Film Society of Lincoln Center declares Landscape Suicide one of the best film blogs out there. I agree!
  8. Recycled Cinema lists 5 things learned from the original Toxic Avenger. Here’s my #6: Don’t stick your hands in the french fry fryer.
  9. Brooklyn’s The L Magazine weighs on the Anthology Film Archives website redesign, mentioned here first last week. Apparently, there’s a couple more design “stages” coming.
  10. Rhizome has images and a write up of Michael Naimark’s cool installation called Displacements, which offers a brand-new definition of the term “home movie.”
  11. Jennifer Reeves returns from Barcelona and raves about the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona’s Xcèntric (cinema) program.
  12. John R. Hand and Mike Ensley launch The Podcast That Dreaded Sundown. First installment: Raving about Charles B. Pierce.
  13. Nathan Wrann reports on some great success on getting funding for his next film, The Fall of the House of Usher. Screw Kickstarter.
  14. DINCA has frames galore this week: Four intense frames from Mary Ellen Bute’s Color Rhapsodie (1948), three splashy frames from Kerry Laitala’s Orbit and three more from Laitala’s Chromatic Cocktail. Plus, a look at a few projects by Ben Russell.
  15. Not quite film: But filmmaker-slash-musician Drew Henkels shares some photos of his crew’s mad prop building skillz for an upcoming stage show, which should also include some film (although that’s not pictured).
  16. Not underground: BadAzzMoFo sadly reports on the death of blaxploitation actress Vonetta McGee, who was only 65 when she passed away on July 9.
