Pick of the Week    

 

 

ROOM 237

In 1980 Stanley Kubrick released his classic horror film, THE SHINING. Over 30 years later, viewers are still struggling to understand its hidden meanings. Loved and hated by equal numbers, the film is considered a genre standard by many loyalists, while other viewers dismiss it as the lazy result of a legendary director working far below his talent level. In between these two poles, however, live the theories of ardent fans who are convinced they have decoded THE SHINING's secret messages regarding genocide, government conspiracy, and the nightmare that we call history. Ascher's ROOM 237 fuses fact and fiction through interviews with the fans and scholars who espouse these theories. Ideas of five devotees of the film with wildly different ideas about its true meaning are braided together in a kaleidoscopic deconstruction of the horror classic. 

 

ROOM 237 director Rodney Ascher will participate in Q&A's after the 1:20 screenings and introduce the 4:20 screenings at the Playhouse on Saturday and Sunday, April 6 and 7. Producer Tim Kirk will join him on Sunday. 

 

 

THE STORY OF LUKE

THE STORY OF LUKE writer/director Alonso Mayo, producer Nina Leidersdorff and some of the cast will participate in a Q&A after the 7:30 screening at the Music Hall on Friday, April 5.

Leighton Pierce: Familial Time Defamiliarized

 

With filmmaker Leighton Pierce in person!

At the Spielberg Theatre at the Egyptian, 6712 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles CA 90028

Tickets: $10 general, $6 students/seniors; free for Filmforum members.

Filmforum is delighted to host artist Leighton Pierce, here from New York, for the first of two different screenings in Los Angeles.  Pierce is one of the leading practitioners of experimental film and video in the United States today, and hasn't screened in Los Angeles in a number of years.

Freed from the constraints of traditional narrative, it is that process of creating an image in the mind of the viewer--the psychological filling-in of the imagined space, not the actual photograph of a space--that Pierce engages. Through the use of rich cascading imagery against the counterpoint of the soundtrack, Pierce disintegrates the film plane, allowing viewers to embody the perceptions of the video solidly within themselves. This video encourages a different kind of viewing and listeningone in which listening and looking inward matters as much as looking outward.

MY BROTHER THE DEVIL

A masterful debut from one of England's boldest and brightest new talents, Sally El Hosaini's My Brother the Devil stars James Floyd as Rashid, a young man from a traditional Arab family who runs with a gang that rules the streets of Hackney, one of London's most ethnically-mixed and historically volatile neighborhoods. Rashid's younger brother, Mo (Fady Elsayed), idolizes his handsome, charismatic older brother and dreams of following in his footsteps, but Rashid envisions a different life for Mo and insists that he stay away from gang life and stick to his studies. When Rashid forms a bond with Sayyid (Sad Taghmaoui), an older man of similar background who is now a successful photographer, he is introduced to a world he never knew existed.  

 

Director Sally El Hosaini and actor James Floyd will appear in person on Friday, April 5 for a Q&A after the 7:00pm show and to introduce the 9:40pm show. They will also appear on Saturday, April 6 for a Q&A after the 7:00pm show and to introduce the 9:40pm show.
