FILM PRESERVATION GROUP: 2013


Film-Loving Developer Gives Home To Preservation Group

A New York film preservation group facing eviction from their quarters in the Tribeca area of the city has been rescued by a real estate developer, who is provided the group with a new -- and larger -- home on Park Avenue South for a token fee of $1.00 a year under a five-year lease. As reported by today's (Thursday) New York Times, developer Charles S. Cohen, a film afionado who has produced, written and directed movies himself, is providing almost 3,600 square feet of office space to the Film-Makers' Cooperative, which archives, distributes and restores experimental and avant-garde movies. One of the group's founders, Jonas Mekas, told the newspaper that it was "amazing that there are still people like Cohen in this world." Executive Director M.M. Serra noted that the group's films, "some of which are one of a kind, will be in air-conditioning specifically designed to protect them, which we don't have where we are now." The facility will also include a 15-seat screening room for those wishing to research the 5,000 films in the group's archives. Bye ...

Screening on 16mm: The Theresa Lang Center

with curator Lili White
The film superimposes landscape, portraiture, abstraction, and hand painted film. Much of the film reframes shots and outtakes from earlier work. "Much in the way musicians will mine their previous compositions to create newly evolved works, this is a district of nostalgic film that distills what the eyes and camera have witnessed, captured, and lost in 15 years of artistic growth. These are recorded discoveries, obsessions, vanishings and growing pains. Literally sewn together."

P.S. Raw film footage for new feature film below...

Embracing Technical Difficulty


“We did everything wrong, technically…. The only thing we did right was to get a group of people together who were young, full of life, and wanted to do something of meaning.”

Voices of an imaginary and "objective" democracy

"LIAR ! GO HOME!" were the words that instigated temporary chaos today at the seminar. These words were shouted by a woman who was of Venezuelan descent (Not a Cuban) and who's young son was killed by her government after he had composed a critical article using social media to protest his oppressing government. 

cinematography and journalism/press coverage in NYC : Joey Huertas

"Yoani, why do you have access to a Paypal account and why do Americans still have no universal healthcare! Cuba offers THAT human right! Tell us now how much are you being paid to sell us out! Who exactly financed this trip of yours !?"

Play money was thrown all over the auditorium with Yoani's face printed on the face of the dollar bill.

Ultimately nothing worked to calm this crowd down except Yoani's calm reserve. She allowed (and expected) her Cuban enemies to vent their spleen publicly upon her. Her calm made this indoor hurricane diffuse itself.

Jane noticed that metal detectors, armed officers, 14 body guards, Cuban nationalist flags, cardboard protest posters and a uniformed voice of anti-Capitalism had expressed its furious nature of physical skepticism about this Yoani 80 day Visa tour. They blamed their anger (of course) on their lack of trust of the U.S government. They aimed their anger at Yoani.
"I was incarcerated by Fidel for over 15 years. Do you not find it an interesting coincidence that your fun trip to the U.S. coincides perfectly with the U.S. persecution of Bradley Manning and Julian Assange for doing the exact same thing you are now applauded for? Is social media really a tool for freedom or does it only provide freedom to those who negotiate a price that is right for them!? How much are you being paid to sell us out Yoani Sanchez!  Tell us now. Blog it for the world to see ! Keep us all well informed...pretty little agitator."  bye.
