Luther Price makes the first of three rare and exclusive appearances in L.A. at the Echo Park Film Center's micro-cinema during an evening devoted to the experimental film-crafter's mesmerizing Super 8 films. Price, who has been an active filmmaker since the 80's, is known for his unique handcrafted process of tortuously manipulating films in novel and unexpected ways. From deconstructing, distressing, and dyeing film to inserting organic matter like dirt and other detritus into sliced and spliced segments of found footage, Price's technique creates extraordinarily visceral films of an incredible sensuousness and oppressive intensity. From the raw to the rapturous, his films span a spectrum of experiences and emotions from the ecstatic to the entropic. The EPFC's program consists of Meat Situation 04 (4 minutes, Super 8), Eruption Erection (1990, 10 minutes, Super 8), I'll Cry Tomorrow (1999, 40 minutes, Super 8), and Meat Blue 03 (1999, 12 minutes, Super 8).
