Bomb Magazine interview with Kristi Zea & Jacki Ochs by Coleen Fitzgibbon

Everybody Knows… Elizabeth Murray is a new documentary film about the life, groundbreaking work, and legacy of the renowned artist. Notable for her shaped canvases and bold colors, Murray’s dynamic career was cut short by cancer in 2007, just a few years after her retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art (an opportunity seldom afforded to women at the time). Director Kristi Zea—the Oscar-nominated production designer for films by Jonathan Demme, James L. Brooks, and Martin Scorsese—debuts with this intimate portrait of her friend, making use of candid footage, home video, and personal journals. Producer Jacki Ochs, also an experimental and documentary filmmaker (Letters Not About Love and Vietnam: The Secret Agent), joins in for this conversation.

Still from LES by Coleen Fitzgibbon

Coleen Fitzgibbon’s film LES, an ingenious conceit depicting Lower East Side residents as members of the John Dough Cargo Cult, evokes the cargo cultist in all of us: gamely attempting to influence events beyond our control and hoping for the best. A must-see, this Saturday at 3 pm at (where else?) Howl Happening, 6 East 1st Street, followed by three more essential new wave/no wave classics.

HOWL Celebrates The East Village Eye

13903266_1635911966700006_844281915406682454_nFriday, September 16 – Sunday, October 9, 2016

L.E.S. by C. Fitzgibbon screening at 3pm September 24th

Howl! Happening: An Arturo Vega Project is pleased to shine a light on another important source of East Village social and cultural history: The East Village Eye. A monthly magazine published from 1979 through 1987, The East Village Eyefocused on popular and avant-garde culture, politics and other issues relevant to the East Village and environs. Self-styled as “a community in print,” the magazine is noted for its groundbreaking coverage of the emerging punk, new wave and hip hop music scenes of the time, as well as the influential art, literature, film and performance worlds of the era.

The East Village Eye Show will feature covers, centerfolds, interior pages, ephemera and photographic prints, as well as key artwork from the era. The show draws from the nearly 4,000 pages, 3,000 photographs, sets of original copies and attendant materials that constitute The East Village Eye Archive, dubbed “the King Tut’s tomb of downtown New York.”

Special Events are also planned. Check the Howl! Happening website for updates.
September 18: Panel Discussion
September 24: New/No Wave Films
September 25: Cinema of Transgression
October 6: Channeling the Dead: Readings of stories by deceased writers Kathy Acker, Cookie Mueller, Rene Ricard, David Wojnarowicz and (too many) others.
