SCREENING & LIVE EVENT
Two by Gina Telaroli, and Brigadoon
With Gina Telaroli in person
Filmmaker, archivist, and cinephile extraordinaire Gina Telaroli makes works that artistically examine her love of cinema. Silk Tatters (U.S., 2014, 17 mins. World premiere) is a cine-essay that explores holding onto the past as a way to embrace the future, inspired by Vincente Minnelli’s Brigadoon. In Starting Sketches #7 (U.S., 2014, 4 mins. World premiere) Jennifer Jones meets Joan Crawford in a haze of criss-crossing black and white as the two dance out their social-class dreams and nightmares.
Followed by a screening of Brigadoon (Dir. Vincente Minnelli, 1955, 102 mins. 35mm. With Gene Kelly, Van Johnson, Cyd Charisse), a haunting, enchanting musical about a magical Scottish village that rises out of the mist every hundred years for only a day.
Free admission. Tickets will be given out on the day of the screening on a first-come, first-served basis. Members (Film Lover level and above) may reserve tickets by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
