Pick for 8/18/11 – “Let Me Sing: The Story of Bobby Byrne”

Go see Bobby Byrne. It’s a bit of nostalgia and a bit of show biz mixed together you’ll more than enjoy. This guy should be on a variety show.

Pick for 4/21/11 – “King Dong”

King Dong dips us into the aesthetically manicured world of never-known comedy filmmaker Len Cella. Making films and videos since the 1960s, this one-man production unit makes the lowest-brow art with all the seriousness of an auteur. His apartment is a living film set, his day job as a house painter is interrupted by stints on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, and growing old only makes him stronger- physically and artistically. Come take a VHS-tinted glimpse into Broomall, Pennsylvania’s comedy shorts anti-legend.

Pick for 3/31/11 – “The Sound We See: A Los Angeles City Symphony”

Please join us for the premiere of The Sound We See, the Fall 2010 EPFC Youth Filmmaking Project DVD. Three dozen students between the ages of 12 and 19 embarked on an epic 12-week adventure, creating a 24-hour portrait of Los Angeles on black and white 16mm film. The result is an exquisite cinematic symphony with live musical accompaniment that harkens back to the beginnings of film’s avant-garde tradition and shows the City of Angels in a whole new light.
