Antonio das Mortes

Third Man Records and the Belcourt Theatre bring you the next installment of the experimental film series Light and Sound Machine. Tonight’s film is Antonio das Mortes:

A staple of Brazil’s Cinema Novo movement, this psychedelic interpretation of Leone-styled Spaghetti Westerns is a violent carnival of bursting colors and music (provided by Marlos Nobre and the Folk Group of Minas), as well as a tribute to the enduring class struggles of Latin America.

I pulled that quote from the Belcourt and Third Man sites. Tickets will be available at the Third Man door, but I recommend you buy in advance via the Belcourt website.

As always, thanks to Ben Swank and James Cathcart for putting this on!

Robert Kramer's ICE 1970

Heads up. The next installment of James Cathcart and Ben Swank‘s Light and Sound Machine experimental film series at Third Man Records is tonight.

Tonight’s film is ICE:

Directed by Robert Kramer, USA, 1970, presented on 16mm film

Guerrilla filmmaking in every sense, Kramer’s independent/underground, cinéma-vérité/science-fiction boundary-crosser used a budget of only $12,000 to produce an ambitious imagining of America in the throes of armed insurrection. The story is set in a vaguely defined future (which, à la Godard’s ALPHVILLE, looks just like the present) in which an unpopular U.S. war in Mexico provokes a left-wing uprising. Concerned with the nuts-and-bolts of revolutionary action and the debilitating effects of infighting among radical groups, ICE is in many ways the fictional equivalent of Chris Marker’s A GRIN WITHOUT A CAT. 16mm.
