January 12: CAVE (The Festival of Cinematic & Audio Visual Experimentation)

January 19: Contemportentary
Each film in this program is a ghost that haunts our contemporary condition. They zigzag across the decades and conjure the morass, the absurdity, the dissonance, and the violence that we have internalized. That we have normalized. They are speaking through film and video artists Dara Birnbaum, Kenneth Anger, Peggy Ahwesh, Tony Oursler, Apichatpong Weerasethakul (and more) at their most mysterious, blasphemous, erotic, obscene, and prophetic. Programmed by Hannah Piper-Burns, 1963-2012, 117 min.
January 26: Wild Wild West
Lawrence Schiller and L.M Kit Carson’s The American Dreamer, is a documentary that focuses on actor, writer, photographer, and director Dennis Hopper as he muses candidly about art, filmmaking, photography, sex, politics, and drugs while on his ranch in New Mexico. Proceeded by short The Great Train Robbery, Directed by Edwin S. Porter. 1903-1971, 102 min.
