‘Burning Bungalows’ brings new and unseen experimental film from Los Angeles on the road this coming April.  With a handmade mix of animation and live action on video, super 8, 16mm and 35mm slides we’re covering all the bases for an eclectic hour and 20 minutes.  The films tend toward an ethereal conjuring of spirits with a dystopian punk attitude. With filmmakers Abby Banks, Alee Peoples, and Cosmo Segurson in person!

Program

Vulgarians 1, 2, 3 by Cosmo Segurson
7 min / 16mm / sound / 2012-2014
This science fiction project focuses on communication, perspective, and the future of mass media and advertising. On a fractured Earth in the near future, our social etiquette will adapt to primitive ways of representation: masks and tin cans replacing social media, technology, and cell phones.

Cat In the Lighthouse (working title) by Cosmo Segurson
5 min / 16mm / live sound / 2014
Combining miniatures, stop motion animation, puppetry, and the filmmaker’s pet cat “Boo”, this short fable explores the wordless bond between a lonely fisherman and the cat that saves his life. Accompanied by a live soundtrack.

Waxing and Milking by Alee Peoples
9:30 min / super 8mm / silent / 2014
A companion piece to Boys of Summer, 2009, Waxing and Milking mimics music video tropes and equates Los Angeles’ favorite food snack, the taco, to a lady’s special parts.

Them Oracles by Alee Peoples
7:30 min / 16mm / sound / 2012
Them Oracles is a skeptic investigation of what an oracle can be and what it would sound like. Human desire and blind faith allow, and maybe even will these mystic soothsayers to exist.

He Hates to be Second by Kelly Sears
3 min / digital / sound / 2008
An erasure poem constructed out of discarded magazines, excess bravado and Cold War aggression.

Remake of Skate Witches (Danny Plotnick,1986) (working title) by Abby Banks
5 min (approx.) / digital / sound / 2014, approximately 5min
Abby makes her own version of Skate Witches, inspired by Danny Plotnick’s super 8 films, while re-learning to skate herself.

Tour Slide Show by Abby Banks
12 min (approx.) / 35mm slides / sound / 2014
A 35mm slide presentation of Bank’s photos taken along various music tours across the country. Tour vans, porches, weird Americana from the Midwest and the like are accompanied by narration and a cassette montage.

Athrú by Nancy Jean Tucker
8 min / digital / sound / 2014

The Temptation of St.Anthony by John Cannizzaro
3 min / super 8 to digital / sound / 2012
A sequence from a work-in-progress on the life of the great desert Hermit-Saint. Retiring to the desert to pray, Anthony is besieged by devils, temptations, and visions culminating in a blasphemous crucifixion that mocks his piety. Shot in one continuous take, a living tableau depicting a tortured mind.

Intolerance by Lisa Marr
3 min / super 8 to digital / sound / 2010
DW Griffith battles it out with Moutain Dew at Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue.
