THREE ON SUNDAY
Via Martin Iles:
Showing videos at Dan’s Silverleaf this Sunday. Video of a French dandy picking pockets, an awesome short photo barrage of house facades, and a live music footage of 35 early 80s punk, New Wave, and post punk bands.
Starts promptly at 10:30PM, and it's free.
Because I love you, I will have a cheeseburger-shaped cake from Kroger for you to eat. First come, first serve, y'all.
Spread the word, and come out if this shit interests you.
Sunday March 29
Dan's Silver Leaf
103 Industrial Street
La piste aux étoiles, 1962 (11 min.)
Live television footage of master pickpocket Henri Kassagi entertaining (and playfully stealing) from an audience in the round from the French circus television program “Star Spangled Track” in 1962. Kassagi was a professional thief who later used the skills he developed in the underworld of Tunisia to become a magician. Kassagi was also a crime consultant for films (including Robert Bresson’s 1959 film Pickpocket).
Timo Katz, 2006 (2 min 23 sec.)
German experimental filmmaker Timo Katz uses still photos of the facades of a row house community to illustrate how the inhabitants of these homes create variation and difference through exterior décor, while the architecture of the structures are an endless disturbing repetition of the same basic design. With music by Japanese duo Fonica.
