Cinespia Salon The Films of Bruce ConnerCinefamily at Silent Movie Theatre
611 N Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles, CA
Cinespia and Cinefamily honor the experimental films of one of the 20th century's most influential artists. A member of the Bay Area Beat scene, the late Bruce Conner was a trained artist who worked with all media to create politically charged assemblages. He eventually created over two dozen non-narrative films from cast-off B-movie footage and scavenged newsreels, collaborating on works with the likes of Devo, Brian Eno, and David Byrne. Tonight, Cinespia presents a selection of works from Conner's 50-year film career, (hopefully) including the seminal 12-minute work A MOVIE (1958), which was selected for preservation by the Library of Congress.
