The Nightingale Cinema, 1084 N Milwaukee, Chicago, IL

Back for a second year, KINOSONIK is a collaboration with the Rebuild Foundation’s Black Cinema House, The Nightingale, and Chicago Film Archives. This year, in mini-residencies at ESS, three pairings of musicians will collaborate to compose live scores for anthologies of film curated and sequenced by CFA from their extensive vaults. The artist pairings—Mwata Bowden/Coppice, Damon Locks/Peter Maunu, and Walter Kitundu/Katherine Young—will perform their work at The Nightingale and at Black Cinema House throughout the late summer and fall of 2015. Once again, the artists were selected based on their substantive and exemplary artistic accomplishments to date, their commitment to risk-taking exploratory approaches to sound and music, their long-standing experience in collaboration, and their interest in integrating their various sonic approaches with moving image.

 

KINOSONIK #5:
Design, Nature, & their Relationship
with live scores by Walter Kitundu & Katherine Young (more…)

Open Screening and Discussion

Sunday, October 18, 5 pm, Free
The Nightingale Cinema, 1084 N Milwaukee, Chicago, IL

“I won’t say I’m a feminist film-maker … I’m not making women’s films, I’m making Chantal Akerman’s films.”  – Chantal Akerman, 1979
“She does what feminist cultural theory has called for: she invents a new language capable of transmitting truths previously unspeakable” – B. Ruby Rich, 1983
“Chantal was direct, tough, and emotionally extravagant. She was small in stature but she commanded a room with her fatigued stance, her grand and sometimes wicked smile, her wild rough-grained voice, and her eyes. The eyes had it. I’ve rarely looked into a pair of eyes so bewitching.” – Kent Jones, 2015
Join us as we celebrate, discuss, and watch the work of Chantal Akerman in memoriam.  Discussion led by Christy LeMaster.  Please feel free to bring movies, books, or food to share.

TRACERS is teaming up with The Nightingale for a monthly media series featuring readings, scholars, films, moving pictures, music, meditation, performance, and lively discussion around topics of contemporary feminism. Over the course of the year, this series presents a body of texts and media designed to promote broader feminist discourse beyond the institutional setting. Your new feminist library starts here. Unless otherwise noted, these events are family friendly and FREE.
