A Talk Between Warby Parker's David Gilboa and Story's Rachel Shechtman: The Blurring of Retail and What to Expect Next.

David Gilboa and three friends from business school started Warby Parker and changed the way we shop for glasses, proving that even the most traditional retail experiences can be digitally improved. Rachel Shechtman invented Story, a space that has the point of view of a magazine, changes like a gallery and sells things like a store. Both have expanded the boundaries of what the retail experience and the retail business model can become. Learn what to expect as the lines between the internet and the storefront blur.

The Rise of the Bitcoin Economy: Is Virtual Currency Here to Stay?, at the Brilliant Brooklyn Stage powered by GE

We reached peak Bitcoin in April when the digital cryptocurrency skyrocketed to $260 a coin before the mini "bubble" burst and it shot down to $60, finally rebounding to its current rate of about $120-140. Now that the initial media hype has died down, is Bitcoin here to stay,or is it just a passing fad? Will increasing scrutiny from the government outweigh the uptick in the amount of venture capital flowing into Bitcoin startups? Watch as the innovators driving the Bitcoin boom discuss what to expect from this transformative new currency.

Reply All: The Dark Past and Glorious Future of the Original Online Communications Tool, at the Brilliant Brooklyn Stage powered by GE
No one likes their inbox. Anyone (even apps) can add to our inbox. Everything from dinner plans, to newsletters, to app notifications end up in the pile. It makes for a lot of noise and not a lot of signal.

There's a big opportunity for tools that help cut through the noise to surface the important conversations.

In this panel, you will hear stories from people who worked outside the industry and transitioned into healthcare for very personal reasons.

Five Windows (World Premiere)

Presented by Northside Townhall

Directed by: Landon Van Soest

Composer: T. Griffin

Sculpture and HD Video/2013/USA

 

Five Windows is a multi-channel video installation presented at street level by the Northside Townhall. The project explores the fluid nature of urban space through a series of static, voyeuristic shots looking through windows into public and private spaces. As a series of protagonists go through banal routines in each window, their surroundings slowly morph to transcend time and alter perception. Periodically the windows present a unified image to suggest the fluid, evolving nature of urban residents. The videos are projected on a series of salvaged windowpanes, suspended on varied planes throughout the space and accompanied by a live score.

 


This event is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).

A Teacher (NY Premiere)

Presented by Oscilloscope, curated by Filmwax. 

Written and directed by Hannah Fidell

Starring Lindsay Burdge

76min/2013/USA/English 

Part psychological thriller and part provocative character study, A TEACHER explores the unraveling of a young high school teacher, Diana (Lindsay Burdge), after she begins an affair with one of her teenage students, Eric (Will Brittain). What starts as a seemingly innocent fling becomes increasingly complex and dangerous as the beautiful and confident Diana gets fully consumed by her emotions, crossing boundaries and acting out in progressively startling ways. Lindsay Burdge delivers a deeply compelling and seamlessly naturalistic performance that brings us into the mind of an adult driven to taboo against her better judgment.

Paris is Burning

Presented by UnionDocs and DCTV 

Directed by Jennie Livingston

71 minutes/1990/USA/English

Jennie Livingston's award-winning, critically-acclaimed documentary pays tribute to the vibrant subculture of New York's drag balls of the late 80's, an underground scene that famously became the inspiration for Madonna's 'Vogue'. This is where it all began; in the community halls of Harlem where flamboyant characters belonging to rival 'houses' gathered to compete on makeshift catwalks.

Paris is Burning is an intimate portrait of a time, a place and a community of outsiders finding expression, strength and pride in a world of their own creating. A special discussion will follow the screening organized by Carolyn Lazard.


Special thanks to Park Circus.

90min/1996/US/English

Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One

Presented by Reverse Shot (in honor of their 10th Anniversary) and Janus Films

Directed by: William Greaves

 

Starring: Patricia Ree Gilbert, Don Fellows, Jonathan Gordon, Bob Rosen, William Greaves

75 mins/1968/USA/English


In his one-of-a-kind fiction/documentary hybrid Symbiopsychotaxiplasm Take One, director William Greaves presides over a beleaguered film crew in New York’s Central Park, leaving them to try to figure out what kind of movie they’re making. A couple enacts a break-up scenario over and over, a documentary crew films a crew filming the crew, locals wander casually into the frame: the project defies easy description. Yet this wildly innovative sixties counterculture landmark remains one of the most tightly focused and insightful movies ever made about making movies. --Criterion Collection

Roman is a con-artist from Long Island, his wife Joy is 7 months pregnant. One morning she vanishes into thin air. The same morning she disappears, Roman discovers that his most consistent scam, government disability checks from a faked madness, will run out if he doesn’t do something soon to prove he is insane. We begin here, and from here dive into the mysterious behavior of those stricken by love and who are perhaps more certifiably crazy than they believe themselves to be.

Go Down Death (NY Premiere) with Black Metal

Presented by IFP and NoBudge Films

Black Metal

Directed by: Kate Candler 

Starring: Jonny Mars, Heather Kafka

9min/2013/USA/English

After a career spent mining his music from the shadows, the actions of one fan create a chain reaction for the lead singer of a black metal band.

 

 

Go Down Death 

Directed by Aaron Schimberg

Starring: Doug Barron, Rayvin Disla, Lucy Kaminsky, Sammy Mena, Bryant Pappas, Simone Xi

88 minutes/2013/USA/English


Go Down Death is a wry, sinister realization of a strange new universe, a cross-episodic melange of macabre folktales supposedly penned by the fictitious writer Jonathan Mallory Sinus. An abandoned warehouse in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, stands in for a decrepit village haunted by ghosts, superstition, and disease, while threatening to buckle under rumblings of the apocalypse. Soldiers are lost and found in endless woods; a child gravedigger is menaced by a shape-shifting physician, a syphilitic john bares all to a young prostitute, and a disfigured outcast yearns for the affections of a tone-deaf cabaret singer. Highlighted by offbeat narrative construction, stunning black-and-white 16mm cinematography and immaculately detailed production design, Go Down Death is a distinctively original film informed by American Gothic, folk culture and outsider art.

FUREVER (Northside DIY Film Competition), Presented by the MFA in Film at Vermont College of Fine Arts

 

Directed by: Amy Finkel

 

Narrated by: Illeana Douglas

80min/2013/USA/English

FUREVER is feature length documentary that explores the dimensions of grief people experience over the loss of a pet. It examines the sociological evolution of pets in the U.S. today, particularly their position in a family unit, and how this evolution is affecting those in the veterinary profession and death care industry. With interviews from grieving pet owners, veterinarians, psychologists, sociologists, religious scholars, neuroscientists, and the many professionals who preserve a pet's body for their devastated clientele, or repurpose a pet's cremains in unique ways (taxidermy, cloning, mummificatio, freeze-drying, AND MANY MORE), FUREVER confronts contemporary trends, perspectives, and relevant cultural assumptions regarding attachment, religion, ritual, grief, and death, and studies the bonds that form between humans and animals, both psychological and physiological.

Gimme the Power (NY Premiere)

Presented by Cinema Tropical

Directed by Olallo Rubio

101 minutes/2012/Mexico/In Spanish and English subtitles


The third feature film by acclaimed radio DJ Olallo Rubio is a irreverent rockumentary about the four-time Latin Grammy Award-winning Mexican alternative band Molotov. Formed in 1995, Molotov rapidly became a favorite among Mexican fans for its risqué, playful, and politically-inspired lyrics. Taking the band's provocative and controversial trademark lyrics as a point of departure, Gimme the Power narrates the history of the popular band while exploring the convoluted political and social contexts of contemporary Mexico.

Starring Jushua Burge, Gary Bosek, Daniel Falicki
86 minutes/Blu-Ray/2013/USA/English

There are a myriad of young directors who have decided to focus their attention on the failures of their peers, daring to show the western white male as immature and antisocial, exposing his contradictions, neuroses and anxieties. Welcome to economically depressed Grand Rapids, Michigan, the city of director Joel Potrykus. Here we find the listless Trevor Newandyke (a brilliant Joshua Burge), a sociopath, comic failure and arsonist. His efforts to wrestle a smile from his audience with his stand-up monologues lead to one flop after another. His jokes give off a desperate, sarcastic vision, expressing a true punk sense of humour that forestalls any kind of public support. When he’s not trying to invent pathetic jokes in front of his bathroom mirror, Trevor likes to set fire to rubbish bins and gets off on the sound of throwing Molotov cocktails at his neighbours’ homes. Trevor’s life is a concentration of trouble, absurd meetings and discussions, public humiliation, solitary wanderings and long moments of exhaustion spent between the walls of his small room. One day a man dressed as the Devil offers him a deal.

A nightmarish, nihilistic tale, the ultra-low budget Ape has all the qualities to become a standard for a generation that has no future, and is also a political manifesto for the best of new American cinema. Burge’s character is an authentic rebel and Potrykus is an innovator, and should be an example for all proletarian artists who really want to make a “guerrilla film.”—Olivier Père, Locarno Film Festival

Presented by BAMcinemaFest

Directed by Joe Swanberg

Starring: Jane Adams, Sophia Takal, Kent Osborne

 

79 min/2012/USA/English

Jane Adams plays a woman living in a house perched precariously on stilts above the beach in Malibu who clings to her life's ambitions in much the same way. With her age exempting her from more and more acting opportunities, her future is uncertain. That's when her young niece — a superb Sophia Takal — comes for a weekend stay. The film captures their night conversations, fears and stories that emerge in the witching hours. Swanberg has become a master at eliciting inspired performances from his actors. Here, he's working at the height of his powers and, with Adams, he's clearly tapped into an actor with creative reserves. Negotiating the language and relationships of 21st century Americans, Swanberg's alchemy is at its best. [Synopsis courtesy of Lane Kneedler and AFI Fest]

Total run time: 66min

In No Place (World Premiere)
Directed by Gabriel Long,
14min/2012/US/English
In 1966 Stephen Oleskey was working on a civil rights campaign in Mississippi, when four state policemen pulled him over and forced him to stand trial in a barn in the middle of the woods. The experience was both terrifying and formative, powerfully illustrating the importance and reach of the constitution and directing him toward a career that would include advocacy work. In 2008, as an attorney, Stephen represented six men being held at the Guantanamo Bay prison. The case ended up before the Supreme Court, where Stephen and his team successfully argued that the men had the right to a trial. By exploring these interconnected stories, the film offers a personal and unique look at elements of the constitution and the law that are often obscured or forgotten despite their fundamental importance to our society.

The Last Homecoming
Directed by Nathan Fitch
4min/2012/USA/English
When Maryann and Brightly found out that their son, Sapuro Nena had been killed in Afghanistan, they knew immediately that they wanted to have his body returned to his native island of Kosrae in the Federated States of Micronesia. Citizens from the Federated States of Micronesia serve in the US Military at a rate that is approximately twice that per capita of US citizens from any US state. The Last Homecoming explores the impact that this service is having upon a small community in the Pacific, and is the subject of a feature length documentary ISLAND SOLDIER by Nathan Fitch (currently under production).

Coney Island: The Darker Side of Dreamland
Directed by Nathan Fitch
5 min/2012/USA/English
Along with many neighborhoods in New York, New Jersey and the eastern seaboard, Coney Island was gravely affected by flooding during Hurricane Sandy on October 30th, 2012. In the aftermath of Sandy, lower income communities such as Coney Island struggled to rebuild and resume normal life again. Among the stories in this short film is that of Adeline, an 81-year old Coney Island native who lived for 40 days and nights without heat or electricity, and of an immigrant family who’s landlord never showed up to renovate their apartment after the storm. Primarily known for providing New Yorkers and visiting tourists with amusement and thrills, this is the Darker Side of Dreamland in the days after Hurricane Sandy.

A Short Film About Guns
Directed by Minos Papas
8min/2013/USA and UK/English
Four experts share firsthand experiences that illuminate the global unregulated arms trade
and how the illegal flow of weapons facilitates loss of life and local devastation. With fewer regulations than bananas, small arms are in constant worldwide circulation, crossing borders thanks to tacit nods and winks among government officials. The UN just passed the first Arms Trade Treaty. “A Short Film About Guns” examines the global effects of the unholstered arms trade that called for this momentous agreement.

The Hunted and the Hated: An Inside Look at the NYPD’s Stop-and-Frisk Policy
Directed by Ross Tuttle
13 min/2012/USA/English
Featuring the only known audio of an actual stop, the short documentary “The Hunted and The Hated” offers a troubling look at the NYPD practice that’s occurred more than five million times on New York City streets in the past decade; and for the first time, viewers can get a real sense for why the practice, as it’s carried out by New York’s Finest, is engendering so much anger in communities across the City. The video includes the unprecedented audio and a critique of the practice from unlikely sources: cops currently on the beat, who offer insights into the pressures driving officers to be hunters and not helpers.

Police on Playback: Copwatch in New York City
Directed by Nate Lavey, Rachel Tomlinson, Martyna Starosta,
7min/2012/USA/English
Stories of police brutality are often told in a way that casts victims as helpless bystanders of cops run amok. We met with Sean Pagan, a recent victim of police violence, and found that his story changes how we think about policing in New York. Sean’s story shows that communities are finding new and innovative tactics for dealing with discriminatory policing, beyond waiting for legislative reform. One such tactic is copwatch, where individuals or teams film officers making arrests. But what’s the history of the tactic? What are the risks, limitations and impact of filming the police? And how do these videos change the way we understand narratives of police violence?
Produced for Waging Nonviolence by the New York Video League. The New York Video League was founded this summer by Nate Lavey, Rachel Tomlinson and Martyna Starosta.

Mexican Families Affected by Hurricane Sandy

Presented by MIX NYC

Frenzy

 

Directed by: Jill Reiter

 

 

11 min/1993/USA/English

 

A visual proclamation of promiscuity, a "queer grrrl" thrash band plays with wild abandon while audience members first tear off their own clothes and then start grabbing the grrrls in the band, kissing them, and trying to pull them away from their instruments.

 

 

She Said Boom: The Story of the Fifth Column 

Directed by Kevin Hegge

Starring GB Jones, Kathleen Hanna, Bruce La Bruce, Vaginal Davis, Caroline Azar, Beverly Breckenridge

64 min/2012/Canada/English

Forerunners of Queercore and Riot Grrrl, Toronto's preeminent feminist art-punk combo Fifth Column gets the tribute it has long deserved. Kevin Hegge's doc also doubles as a fascinating time capsule of the city's vibrant alternative culture of the 1980s and early 1990s. Hegge uses an abundance of film, video, and print material to powerfully evoke their Toronto, before the queercore ethos that Fifth Column and pal Bruce LaBruce cooked up wended its way into the lives and minds of misfits far from Queen Street And though Hegge doesn't quite untangle the band's very messy history, he captures the equally unruly energies that made Fifth Column matter.

About birdsong:

The Birdsong Collective and Micropress were founded in April 2008 with four goals in mind: to foster sustained collaboration among artists, musicians and writers in the form of an ongoing workshop; to continually encourage each other to produce creative work; to host free, public events where members can showcase works in progress; and to circulate members’ creative endeavors in a low-cost, easy to reproduce, and high-frequency format. Birdsong members share commitments to social movements of feminism, anti-racism, queer positivity, class-consciousness, and DIY cultural production. These commitments inform our creative work in many ways, ranging from the concrete to the theoretical to the experimental.

Forbidden Voices (Sneak Peek)

Presented by Women Make Movies

Directed by Barbara Miller

96 minutes/HDCAM/2012/ Switzerland/Spanish, Chinese, French and Farsi with English Subtitles

Their voices are suppressed, prohibited and censored. But world-famous bloggers Yoani Sánchez, Zeng Jinyan and Farnaz Seifi are unafraid of their dictatorial regimes. These fearless women represent a new, networked generation of modern rebels. In Cuba, China and Iran their blogs shake the foundations of the state information monopoly, putting them at great risk.

This film accompanies these brave young cyberfeminists on perilous journeys. Eyewitness reports and clandestine footage show Sánchez's brutal beating by Cuban police for criticizing her country's regime; Chinese human rights activist Jinyan under house arrest for four years; and Iranian journalist and women's advocate Seifi forced into exile, where she blogs under a pseudonym. Tracing each woman's use of social media to denounce and combat violations of human rights and free speech in her home country, FORBIDDEN VOICES attests to the Internet's potential for building international awareness and political pressure.

David Holzman's Diary

Presented by BOMB Magazine and Kino Lorber

Directed by Jim McBride

Starring: L.M. Kit Carson, Eileen Dietz

73 minutes/Black & White/1967/USA/English


David Holzman's Diary is one of the most influential films of the 1960s, an "ingenious puzzle movie" (Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader) that charts the self-destruction of a media-saturated youth.

As news from the Vietnam War and social unrest blares over the radio, David Holzman (L.M. Kit Carson) unloads comic-neurotic monologues to his 16mm camera. When his relationship with Penny (Eileen Dietz) goes south, he retreats further into moving images, secretly recording his pretty neighbor and even turning his lens to the TV shows he watches. No longer able to deal with life outside celluloid, all of his ties to the real world begin to erode.

The "totally delightful satire" (NY Times) of a narcissistic artist is also a well-crafted fiction about the deceptions of cinematic illusionism. Early on, Holzman quotes Jean-Luc Godard's famous dictum that "the cinema is truth 24 frames-per-second." As director Jim McBride teaches and Holzman soon learns, it lies just as often.

Growing up at a critical moment for America as well, their lives “force us all to rethink assumptions about tomorrow’s leaders, the impact of 9/11 on them, and the political views of the millennial generation” (Christian Science Monitor). As shocking as "Jesus Camp," as revealing as "American Teen," and as funny as "Spellbound" – FOLLOW THE LEADER is the true story of what “change” means for three young leaders who feel destined to lead the world.

Go Down Death 

 

Directed by Aaron Schimberg

Starring: Doug Barron, Rayvin Disla, Lucy Kaminsky, Sammy Mena, Bryant Pappas, Simone Xi

88 minutes/2013/USA/English


Go Down Death is a wry, sinister realization of a strange new universe, a cross-episodic melange of macabre folktales supposedly penned by the fictitious writer Jonathan Mallory Sinus. An abandoned warehouse in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, stands in for a decrepit village haunted by ghosts, superstition, and disease, while threatening to buckle under rumblings of the apocalypse. Soldiers are lost and found in endless woods; a child gravedigger is menaced by a shape-shifting physician, a syphilitic john bares all to a young prostitute, and a disfigured outcast yearns for the affections of a tone-deaf cabaret singer. Highlighted by offbeat narrative construction, stunning black-and-white 16mm cinematography and immaculately detailed production design, Go Down Death is a distinctively original film informed by American Gothic, folk culture and outsider art.
