LIVE CINEMA in VENICE
October 5th, 2 to 4pm Beyond Baroque 681 Venice Blvd
A fun interactive workshop on film making.
"Live cinema" involves humans in front of the movie screen performing live (drama, dance, music, poetry). Participants will explore how it interconnects with movie making, and how Venice is conducive to this hybrid art form.
Fialka will discuss his recent feature film The Brother Side of the Wake (BroSide), an experimental documentary with Venice, California, as its main character. BroSide involves the audience in call-and-responses, much like a community, out-loud reading of James Joyce's Finnegans Wake.
Gerry Fialka, artist, writer, and paramedia ecologist, lectures world-wide on experimental film avant-garde art and subversive social media. He has been praised by the Los Angeles Times as the multi-media Renaissance man. The LA Weekly proclaimed him a cultural revolutionary. He has lived in Venice for 38 years.
