INDIGENOUS NOW: EXPERIMENTAL MOVING IMAGE WORKS BY NATIVE AMERICAN ARTISTS
Saturday, August 4 at 8 PM
Echo Park Film Center
1200 N Alvarado St, Los Angeles, CA 90026
Doors 7:30 pm; $5 admission.
Multimedia artist and filmmaker Eve-Lauryn LaFountain (Turtle Mountain Chippewa) presents a screening of performance based experimental moving image works by Native American artists. Each filmmaker has a diverse practice that explores Indigenous histories and identities through their work. These films play at the intersection of documentary and experimental film to tell stories while exploring legacies, language, land, and passing down culture through generations. This program was originally presented as part of Indigenous Now Art @ Tongva in and sponsored by the City of Santa Monica. This encore screening is happening by popular demand to have a Eastside presentation of the works. Featuring work by Pamela Peters, Timothy Ryan Ornelas, Kayla Briët, Elisa Harkins, Suzanne Kite, and Eve-Lauryn LaFountain, several filmmakers will be in attendance.

Art @ Tongva: Indigenous Now
Wednesday, May 30, 2018
7:30 PM  9:30 PM
I curated a special screening program of experimental moving image works by Native American multimedia artists for this event.
The 2018 Art @ Tongva season concludes with Indigenous Now,  an evening of performance, music and art by Los Angeles-based indigenous artists. The program is a collaboration with the Art @ Tongva Indigenous Advisory Committee, comprised of Lazaro Arvizu (Tongva), Los Angeles Unified School District Indigenous Advisor; Clementine Bordeaux (Sicangu Lakota Oyate), PhD in World Arts and Cultures/Dance UCLA; and Michelle Enfield (Diné - Navajo), Red Circle Program Coordinator, Special Initiatives and APLA Program Coordinator.
“This program shares work of current artists, who are fellow indigenous friends. Celebrating the work they are making now reinforces the histories and presence of indigenous people’s existence, a fight for visibility that is never complete,” says Lazaro Arvizu.
A special opening ritual at 7:30 p.m. opens this varied, inspirational, and galvanizing evening, which includes musical performances by award-winning singer-songwriter and activist Raye Zaragoza, whose music is deeply informed by her multinational heritage (O’odham, Mexican, Taiwanese and Japanese). Zaragoza’s viral protest song, In the River, won the 2017 Global Music Award for Protest Music and the Honesty Oscar for Activist Anthem.

LIVE PERFORMANCEPERFORMANCE - AWASISHKODE (BEYOND THE FIRE)
Multi-media artist Eve LaFountain and her collaborator, musician Jon Almaraz, do live performances that expand on Waabanishimo (She Dances Till Daylight), a project that explores ways that film can capture movement, light, and spirits. LaFountain runs multiple 35mm slide and small format motion picture film projectors accompanied by live sound made by Almaraz. The light from the projectors is interrupted with various materials to explode the images beyond the screen. The sound begins with guitar and goes through many modes of analog and digital manipulation. The ephemeral events, entitled Awasishkode (Beyond the Fire), highlight the performative power of projection and sound. LaFountain and Almaraz invoke the spirit of magic lantern shows and the silent film era, when musicians would play live music to films in the theater, for a new century through visual and musical improvisation.

Installations by Sean Miller, Eve LaFountain, and Ian Haig
The second night of the Dallas Medianale includes audio-visual performances and the opening of an exhibition by Eve-Lauryn Little Shell LaFountain and a public art installation by Sean Miller at The Greenzone; and an exhibition by Ian Haig at Ro2 Art. The exhibitions will be on view through May 27.

Eve-Lauryn Little Shell LaFountain’s work investigates urban indigeneity, ceremony, tradition, landscape, spirits, light, and photographic mediums. Giizis Mooka'am (Sun/Moon Rise) is a 16mm film project made as part of LaFountain’s previous series, Waabanishimo (She Dances Till Daylight). The film, with sound by Jon Almaraz, is made in two parts – Giizis Mooka’am: Giiwe (Sun/Moon Rise: She Goes Home), and Giizis Mooka’am:Waabanishimo (Sun/Moon Rise: She Dances Till Daylight) – and will be shown as dual 16mm projections. The titles are in Ojibwa with English subtitles. These films bend time and collapse the space between the artist’s current home, Los Angeles, and former home, Santa Fe—the ghost world and the world of the living. 

Public art installation, Machine Biology 2017, is an application created by Dallas-based artist Sean Miller. Black and White cellular forms rapidly divide, merge, morph, and evolve. This work uses digital feedback and sculpted, chaotic data to produce ever-changing, stroboscopic, microbe-like imagery, while exploring the aesthetics of dynamical systems. The installation will be visible from Ervay Street, displayed in the second floor window of The MAC building.

Opening concurrently at Ro2 Gallery, will be an augmented reality installation by Australian artist Ian Haig (www.ianhaig.net).

For the opening night at the Greenzone there will be an impressive line-up of audio-visual performances by artists:

LA premiere! Filmmakers Adam Khalil and Executive Producer Steve Holmgren of INAATE/SE/, filmmaker Eve-Lauryn Little Shell LaFountain, and Maya Solis of Sundance in person!

The ethnographic film tradition was part of the colonialist tradition.  Now (and for some time), new filmmakers, often from groups seen as the subjects being documented or collected in traditional films, are expressing their own voices and traditions in what some are called “anti-ethnographic” films.  Filmforum is delighted to host several indigenous filmmakers leading this work, along with guest Maya Solis from the Sundance Institute for a post-screening discussion.

Adam Khalil and Zack Khalil’s new film re-imagines an ancient Ojibway story, the Seven Fires Prophecy, which both predates and predicts first contact with Europeans. A kaleidoscopic experience blending documentary, narrative, and experimental forms, INAATE/SE/ transcends linear colonized history to explore how the prophecy resonates through the generations in their indigenous community within Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. With acute geographic specificity, and grand historical scope, the film fixes its lens between the sacred and the profane to pry open the construction of contemporary indigenous identity.

Tickets: $10 general admission; $6 students (with ID)/seniors; free for Filmforum members.

On Friday April 28, from 8-11pm, Night Gallery is hosting the launch of Issue 10 of The Third Rail, which features Adam and Zack Khalil's interview with filmmaker Sky Hopinka. The event will feature music by Olga and Beat Detectives, and video by Mati Diop & Manon Lutanie, Alexander Kluge, and Adam Khalil & Zack Khalil. Night Gallery is located at 2276 E 16th Street, near Washington Blvd. and Santa Fe Ave. http://thirdrailquarterly.org/issue-news/

Screening:
INAATE/SE/
It Shines a Certain Way to a Certain Place/It FliesFalls/
2016, DCP, 75 minutes

"An artful and brilliant collage, expressing hope, pain, despair, and the trickster humor that is so evocative of its people."
-BOMB Magazine, http://bombmagazine.org/article/1985224/adam-zack-khalil

"Stylistically audacious" 
- The Hollywood Reporter

"Formally adventurous but never esoteric, INAATE/SE is an inimitable model for what radical documentary in the 21st century might be"
-Screen Slate

History is written by the victors, but this film reminds us
 that the history of the oppressed can still be saved from being extinguished. Native American video artists Adam and Zack Khalil here reclaim the narrative of the Ojibway of Sault Ste. Marie, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, from the archives and museums that would confine it to the past. Using personal interviews, animated drawings, performance, and provocative intercutting, the Khalil brothers’ feature debut makes a bold case for the Ojibway people to be their own storytellers—while seeking a cure for the damage inflicted by colonization—in a spiritual reconnection with tradition.

Join Tom Jones, Eve-Lauryn Little Shell LaFountain and Nancy Marie Mithlo in conversation, Tuesday April 25 at 7pm, the last of the 2016–17 D*STAR conversation series, which has brought together a wide range of practitioners to share their current interests and work and help to expand the frame of contemporary art in which we learn, teach and make. This has meant questions about the histories, knowledge, aesthetics, criteria and notions of quality, and the larger systems of assumptions and references from which we learn to make and think within art.
