7 DUDLEY CINEMA, HOSTED BY GERRY FIALKA
FOURTH SUNDAYS (mostly), 7:00 PM
Curator Gerry Fialka screens films as antennae of the race, broadcasting the hidden effects of what we have invented. From experimental films to political activist cinema to lit, art, music flix to avant garde documentaries, this series provokes new questions and features fiery discussions. "Gerry Fialka is Los Angeles' preeminent underground film curator." - laughtears.com
Curator Gerry Fialka has been involved in: The Ann Arbor Film Festival, the oldest experimental film festival in the world, and PXL THIS (http://www.laughtears.com/PXL-THIS-21.html), the annual Pixelvision (Toy Video Camera) festival, established in 1991. Film Threat's Chris Gore deemed PXL THIS one of the ten best video festivals. His DOCUMENTAL series (now at the Unurban in Santa Monica) started at the Midnight Special, which was the oldest political bookstore in the world, ran for 8 years, and was praised as "L.A.'s pre-eminent documentary and experimental film showcase...the holy grail" - LA Weekly. In RES magazine, Holly Willis declared Gerry Fialka the "Los Angeles-based independent media hero." In the INDEPENDENT FILM AND VIDEO MONTHLY, Willis proclaimed Fialka an "exemplary devotee of cinema. Thanks to Fialka's penchant for the weird and wild, L.A. gets to see material we wouldn't otherwise." The LA TIMES calls Fialka "the multi-media Renaissance man."
