    An Evening with Peter Hutton – At Sea

    Declared the best avant-garde film of the decade, At Sea is ambitious and profound. A haunting meditation on human progress charting the life-cycle of a colossal container ship from creation through destruction, with a voyage across the Atlantic in between. The film will be screened in its true 16mm format, and will be followed by conversation and audience Q&A with the artist. This film is a part of the Film Form/Film Art series.

  • The Draem master:The stories of Arthur Schnitzler, the amoral voice of fin-de-siècle Vienna.
    By Leo Carey

    “Anatol” established Schnitzler as the sardonic, amoral voice of his generation.

    Meanwhile, as he entered his forties, the pace of his sex life was becoming a little less frenetic. In 1903, he married Olga Gussmann, an aspiring actress and singer twenty years his junior, with whom he had a son and a daughter. The Schnitzlers became part of the Viennese cultural élite, in which, it seems, everyone knew everyone. Gustav and Alma Mahler were friends, as were Stefan Zweig, Bruno Walter, Felix Salten, and Franz Werfel. The satirist Karl Kraus was an enemy.

    Brave and Bold, Lee Bontecou is Formidable at 84

    January 15th, 2015
  • Lee Bontecou 1bontecouIcon

  • Lee was born on January 15, 1931 1bontecouface in Providence, Rhode Island

    Happy birthday Lee Bontecou, she is 84 years old.

  • Bontecou does not care what you think

    She doesn’t want to impose. She’s probably most closely allied to the abstract expressionists because she acknowledges when she was a young artist [during] the heyday of the abstract expressionists, she admired not only their work but the idea of freedom and experimentation that their work embodied and the way they lived their lives. They weren’t theorists. They didn’t talk about their work. It was intuitive. She still doesn’t want to really talk about her work. She doesn’t want to fix meaning. She wants to keep it open for people.

    Politics to Literature – Neo Realist Filmmaker Francesco Rosi Dies at 92

    January 10th, 2015
  • Francesco Rosi, a filmmaker who was fascinated with power, poverty and politics, and whose commitment to social issues made him a direct heir to the traditions of Italian neorealist cinema of the postwar years, died on Saturday in Rome. He was 92.

    Senses of Cinema: Rosi

    Fancesco Rosi

    His 1979 film Christ Stopped at Eboli won the Golden Prize at the 11th Moscow International Film Festival.[5]

    Rosi’s films always appear to have political messages, especially his work from the 1960s and 1970s. As he matured as a director his topics for films became less politically oriented and more angled toward literature. Despite the more traditional slant of his later work, Rosi continued to direct until 1997. The 58th edition of the Berlin International Film Festival in 2008 played tribute to Francesco Rosi by screening 13 films in its Homage section, the latter being reserved to filmmakers of outstanding quality and achievement. He received the Honorary Golden Bear for Lifetime Achievement on 14 February 2008, accompanied by the screening of Salvatore Giuliano.

    (January 9, 1924 – July 20, 1990) was a Soviet film director and artist who made significant contributions to Ukrainian, Armenian and Georgian cinema.[1] He invented his own cinematic style, which was totally out of step with the guiding principles of socialist realism (the only sanctioned art style in the USSR). This, combined with his controversial lifestyle and behaviour, led Soviet authorities to repeatedly persecute and imprison him, and suppress his films.

    Photo of Rilke with Paul Valery at the Garden & His letter to Lou Andreas Salome

  • Rilke and Valery 1aPaulValeryRilke
    (At the garden at Anthy – photo Monad)

    On Dec 29, 1921 -
    Rilke wrote to Lou Andrea-Salome (On Freud, he told her how his work is now beginning to have an important effect in France then he turned to Paul Valery) page 279 -280 – Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke – 1910 -1926.

    Only the poetry of Paul Valery really astonishes me, whose “Le Cimetiere marin” I managed to translate with an equivalence I scarcely thought could be achieved between the two languages….

    “Eupalinos – like all Valery’s few works of a serenity, a calm and equanimity that you too would entirely appreciate. Paul Valery stems from Mallarme.

    But Valery kept silent and worked at mathematics until he was ready for artistic expression 25 years later,

    so much the purer. In 1915, a man of fifty (Valery): and what has since come from his is of the greatest distinction and significance.

  • Pierre Clementi 1clementi-1

    Born at 6am in the 14th arrondissement in Paris, 28th September 1942, Pierre Clémenti died in the same city, of liver cancer, Monday 27th December 1999; days before the end of the century. He never knew his father, who was said to have been killed in the war, and instead took his name from his Corsican mother.

    He discovered poetry at reform school as a young teenager, and his love of it lasted a lifetime. After working as a bellboy at the Hotel Littré in the late 1950s, where he managed to sell a few poems to a female guest he’d spent the night with, he was able to concentrate on hanging out with his friends in Saint Germain. On these streets he was fatefully sidetracked into an acting career that became symbolic of so many aspects of European cinema of the time: experimentalism, anarchy, androgyny, anti-heroism, surrealism and pariah culture.
