Bruce Conner: An Assemblage Of Films (Saturday Screening)

Aurora Picture Show says
In the late 1950s, San Francisco artist Bruce Conner began making films by refashioning pieces of B-movies, newsreels, and industrial films. Ranging from aggressive montages to gentler meditations, Conner’s found-footage assemblages critique pop culture while simultaneously embodying it. Held in conjunction with the Menil Collection exhibition Holy Barbarians: Beat Culture on the West Coast, this program highlights some of Conner’s most influential films made between the 1950s and 80s–all shown on 16mm film prints. Includes A Movie (1958), Cosmic Ray (1961), Breakaway (1966), White Rose (1967), Report (1963-67), Mongoloid (1978), America is Waiting (1981), and Mea Culpa (1981). There are two screenings (one Saturday, one Sunday) and both are free, but space is limited so RSVP in advance here: http://aurorapictureshow.org/calendar.asp?pageid=83&calid=1010
