THE GREATEST AMERICAN ACTRESS YOU NEVER HEARD OF: A lecture by John Bredin

Now almost completely forgotten, in the Belle Epoque period (1890 - 1910) corresponding politically to the first great Progressive movement, Blanche Walsh was arguably America’s version of Sarah Bernhardt.

Walsh’s most famous role was as the peasant prostitute Maslova, in the play version of Tolstoy’s neglected third novel, Resurrection—his most radical, political, and best-selling book—one rich with themes that could easily be ripped from today’s headlines. Wealth inequality: check. Russian oligarchy: check. The prison-industrial complex: check. Along with a romance for the ages, and a recognition of the redemptive power of human love.

ECART FILMS ARCHIVES

CH. 1968-1977

The spirit of the 1970s

While the Ecart group, founded by John Armleder, Patrick Lucchini, and Claude Rychner, goes as far back as their childhood friendship, the opening of the Ecart gallery—which many considered the most important alternative space in Europe during the 1970s—took place in 1969 in Geneva. In the wake of their Fluxus activities, Ecart members produced a dozen or so super 8 silent films, some directed by Endre Tót or Günther Ruch. All of these are compiled for this screening.

Emblematic of the group's singular collective economy, these films also attest to the intersecting trajectories of different media (performance, film, installation), to aesthetic and conceptual freedom, and to the hybrid nature of artistic movements (from Conceptual art to performance, from individual poetics to the sharing of signatures) characterizing the 1970s.

Contents:
• "One Day Movie Hall," 1968-1973, 13' 25''
• "Fluxtheatre," 1974, 46'
• "Totaljoys" (by Endre Tót), 1976, 11' 27''
• "Pieds" (by Patrick Lucchini), 1973, 9' 58''
• "Performance Piece," 1970, 3 ' 29''
• "Film with a Chair," 1973, 10' 13''
• "Why not Stop? (Part One)," 1968–1977, 12' 53''
• "Trace" (by Günther Ruch), 1977, 3' 6''
• "The Crissier-Walk," 1974, 3' 56''

TONITE LET'S ALL MAKE LOVE IN LONDON

UK. 1967

DIR: P. WHITEHEAD

Peter Whitehead's disjointed Swinging London documentary, subtitled "A Pop Concerto," comprises a number of different "movements," each depicting a different theme underscored by music: A early version of Pink Floyd's "Interstellar Overdrive" plays behind some arty nightclub scenes, while Chris Farlowe's rendition of the Rolling Stones' "Out of Time" accompanies a young woman's description of London nightlife and the vacuousness of her own existence. In another segment, the Marquess of Kensington (Robert Wace) croons the nostalgic "Changing of the Guard" to shots of Buckingham Palace's changing of the guard, and recording act Vashti are seen at work in the studio. Sandwiched between are clips of Mick Jagger (discussing revolution), Andrew Loog Oldham (discussing his future) - and Julie Christie, Michael Caine, Lee Marvin, and novelist Edna O'Brien (each discussing sex). The best part is footage of the riot that interrupted the Stones' 1966 Royal Albert Hall concert
