beautiful-losers

  • THURSDAY 2nd: This could be interesting. ACMI is playing a documentary called Beautiful Losers about a group of multi-disciplinary artists including street artist Shepard Fairey and filmmakers Harmony Korine (Kids, Ken Park, Mister Lonely) and Mike Mills (Thumbsucker). Hilarious interview with Harmony Korine from 1995 on Letterman which is pretty much required viewing here. Beautiful Losers is screening until Sunday. [ACMI]

cleo

  • FRIDAY 3rd: ACMI shows as part of their ‘Focus on Girls 24/7’ program Agnes Varda‘s Cleo from 5 to 7, a French New Wave film about a ditzy singer who kills time on the streets of Paris. [Focus on Girls 24/7] Freaky Fridays screens Executive Koala about a Japanese salaryman who also happens to be a koala. [Freaky Fridays] Cinema Fiasco presents Black Mama, White Mama a 1973 exploitation flick starring Pam Grier and Margaret Markov about two ladies flung into a Third World women’s prison featuring the requisite shower scenes, cat fights and lesbians. The presentation features live commentary which sounds pretty irritating and unnecessary. [Astor]
