CINE COOKS: 10 am – 1 pm
Why use toxic chemistry to develop your Super 8, 16mm or 35mm film when you can get fantastic results without harming Mother Earth? Join us in the EPFC North Kitchen as we cook up some tasty analog film processing experiments using non-toxic ingredients from the pantry, park, farmer’s market, garden and grocery store. Each month we’ll develop half a roll of black & white film with caffenol and the other half in a fresh seasonal soup… Recipes and supplies list provided prior to the workshop for those who want to process along in real time! This month: Tecate vs Mate!!!
Devices of Wonder + Screening of LUXANDO
(In-person outdoors at Moberly Fieldhouse):
6pm – 10 pm (screening starts around 8:30pm)
Luxando experimental film and sound screening curated by Alexandra Gelis and Jorge Lozano.
From the archives of CFMDC in Toronto, we selected six experimental films made in celluloid 35mm, 16mm, and Super 8mm, which share the poetics of embodiment, discontinuity, the indeterminate, analog glitch, perturbations, gaps, scratches, repetitions, chaos, noise. And, to provoke an encounter, we invited six South American artists who share these poetic frictions, in their sound practice and asked them to respond to the impact on their terms, to bring forth new possibilities.
“LUXANDO” means to dislocate, to get out of the frame, to get out of the structure, to get out of oneself, out of juncture.
