DESCRIPTION

Come to the Velaslavasay Panorama on Sunday, December 4th, 2011 for an evening of rarely-screened films exploring the presence of collective significances past--flickering piecemeal and vague. Anchoring the night will be Bill Daniel's Who is Bozo Texino? (2005, 58min), the 16mm document of his search for the eponymous source of 80 years of boxcar graffiti. Bracing that film, are two by Bill Brown--Kustom Kamera Kommandos (2005, 2min) and Hub City (1996, 15min)--and Millie Paul's Forgotten Faces (1969, 1min), a collection of shorts that register historical trajectories from golden age to steep decline, and our paradoxical position there within, recognizing a fetishization of exhausted forms, but producing nonetheless.

Presented by USC M.A. Art & Curatorial Practices in the Public Sphere and Velaslavasay Panorama, Los Angeles.

We would like to thank Lucy Raven for her guidance, and Dino Everett at the Hugh M. Hefner Moving Image Archive at the USC School of CInematic Arts, Paolo Davanzo and the Echo Park Film Center, and the Velaslavasay Panorama for their assistance and support.
