[Noo Phone in the Black Space]: or How to Avoid Roaming Charges (2017-May-26 @ 7 p.m.)

Friday, May 26 @ 19:0021:00
Silo City,
120 Childs St.
Buffalo, New York 14203 United States
+ Google Map

Squeaky Wheel is proud to present an augmented reality performance by Buffalo based media artist Yvette Granata and San Jose based artist and performer Andrew Blanton. For two consecutive evenings the artists will install and perform in a visual, sonic performance that transforms the grand halls of Silo City through emerging technologies. Can augmented reality be used as the creation of new forms of collectivity? Or does it produce new forms of spatio-temporal apartheids? Through their respective approaches to performative augmentation and mobile media, Andrew Blanton and Yvette Granata's works inquire into the manner in which augmented reality and media performance can be framed as a critical dialogue between the alliances and the vacuoles of mobile realities. Interpreting augmented reality as performance space, their works are audiovisual performances and variations on collective and un-collective space. The works form a critical dialogue on augmented life, collecting performances of sound and image — an ambient group text message, a vertical disorientation through camera-apps, a hand-held sonic immersion, and a modulation of ambient feedback of the Silos.

Cosmos screening

Friday, May 26 @ 19:3021:07
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman Museum (formerly George Eastman House),
900 East Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

The Dryden will screen Cosmos (Andrzej Żuławski, France / Portugal 2015, 97 min., DCP, French w/subtitles) as part of the Andrzej Żuławski series.

Żuławski's final film, a literary adaptation suffused with his trademark freneticism, transforms Polish writer Witold Gombrowicz's novel into an ominous and manic exploration of desire. Witold, who has just failed the bar, and his companion Fuchs, who has recently quit his fashion job, are staying at a guesthouse run by the intermittently paralytic Madame Woytis. Witold's reality mutates into a whirlwind of tension, histrionics, foreboding omens, and surrealistic logic as he becomes obsessed with Madame Woytis's daughter Lena, newly married to Lucien.

War and Peace screening (2017-May-27 @ 7:30 p.m.)

Saturday, May 27 @ 19:3022:58
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman Museum (formerly George Eastman House),
900 East Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

The Dryden will screen War and Peace (King Vidor, U.S. / Italy 1956, 208 min., 35mm) as part of the Period Dramas series.

This elegant Hollywood production was the first English-language version of Leo Tolstoy's Russian epic. The film, notably condensed from Tolstoy's tome, concerns two intertwined aristocratic Russian families during the era of Napoleon's ill-fated 1812 invasion, starring screen greats Henry Fonda as the intellectual Pierre Bezukhov and Audrey Hepburn as the eminent object of desire Natasha Rostova. Veteran director King Vidor's penultimate feature uses remarkably lavish footage of the Italian countryside as a substitute for the story's war-ravaged Russia.

Oliver Twist screening

Sunday, May 28 @ 14:0015:45

Rochester, New York 14607 United States

The Dryden will screen Oliver Twist (David Lean, U.K. 1948, 105 min., 35mm) as part of the Period Dramas series.

Fleeing the clutches of a cruel orphanage for the brutal streets of 19th-century London, young Oliver finds himself amidst a criminal underworld of pickpockets and thieves. Exploring familiar Dickens territory regarding guilt and the unpredictable circularity of life, this dark tale of childhood naïveté is loyal to the emotional rollercoaster that Dickens intended. David Lean's second Dickens adaptation stars Alec Guinness as Fagin and John Howard Davies as Oliver.
