FIRE AFTER THE SUN

Five Videomakers from Mexico City

Tlate1

The Nightingale Cinema, 1084 N. Milwaukee
Friday, August 19th, 7:30 pm, $7-10


Fire After the Sun
presents the work of five videomakers from Mexico City addressing the legacy of delusionment/disillusionment after history, anecdotes around collective catastrophes, and deconstructions of national symbols.

The program creates a  dialogue between the antagonistic perspectives and conceptual coincidences between the different works. Originally they were all created as video installations. Thus they challenge the mono channel projection by creating non-linear narratives, departing from fiction and nonfiction film strategies through selected media archeologies and techniques.

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here tonight to celebrate the life and love of Hard Drive. :~(

When we started this journey together, we assumed it would end in planned obsolescence, but the years we spent together were the best of our lives.

There are so many good memories to back up. :~)

Like the time we improperly ejected Hard Drive, or the great migration from Windows ➡️ Mac OS, but being so solid and dependable, you didn’t lose a bit or byte of info.

Or that fateful day when your sleek, compact design that had once brought us so much joy, made you slip through our fingers to your final resting place.

We held you in our hands, and felt your 7200 RPMS slow down to zero, until the click of death finally overtook your drive as you entered the great bit bucket in the sky.⛅️

Every time we see a ‘media offline’ message, we are reminded of your absence.

We wish there was a Time Machine that could take us back to all the good times you kept in store for us.

Hard Drive, thank you for being part of our lives, and thank you for the memory. ✌️

Your final wishes of being responsibly recycled will be followed though. ❤️♻️☁️

Unfortunately, it was too expen$$$ive to save your contents so all we have now are these videos. ▶︎

Come pay your respects at our screening/funeral for Hard Drive @ The Nightingale.

The Nightingale will host a screening of first year SAIC MFA students’ film, video, and new media work.

___-STILL

The Nightingale Cinema, 1084 N. Milwaukee
Friday, May 6th, 7 pm, $7-10

These works, produced as first year students in the MFA program, explore themes of loss and displacement, the role of the accordion in Chinese culture, and chance operations. Join us for a screening of works completed and in progress, including a live kazoo soundtrack.

Including:

Joe Houlberg – BIRTHz

Ricardo Salcedo Martínez – Home(s)

Julia Pello – In the Time//In the House\\ of Slow Sex

Emily Sasmor – COWBOYS, COWBOYS, COWBOYS, MINERS, COWBOYS – ACT III – THE GIRL GANG AND THE PONY

Kelsey Velez – Pinwheel

Peng Zuqiang – Accordion Class

Joe Houlberg is an Ecuadorian film director, born in 1986. He studied Film and Philosophy at Universidad San Francisco de Quito. At the moment, Houlberg is studying an MFA in Filmography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Throughout his career, Joe has explored the forms of communication present among the living beings, beyond words. This exploration may be experienced in SED, his first feature film (Chicago Latino Film Fest), as well as in BEUEU (Best Short film: Cero Latitud, Official Selection: Chicago Latino, Lakino Berlin), NO VA A NINGÚN LADO (Official Selection: Cine- marea, Tamaulipas, Espejo) and NIEBLA MUDA (Honorable Mention: La Orquídea).

Ricardo Salcedo Martínez was born in Cuenca, Ecuador in 1989. He got his undergraduate degree Film at the School of Arts and Social Sciences in Chile. Through fiction, documentary and essay film forms his work often delves into questions of identity, belonging and perception. He is currently studying for his Master’s at SAIC.

Julia Pello is a Russian-born poet and filmmaker who has shown work around the world including at The Getty, Le Centre Pompidou, and the Bangkok International Film Festival among many others. She has collaborated on various audio-visual projects including Hour of Star and Zerkalo and presented live projections at such venues as Cité de La Musique. Julia is currently a Master of Fine Arts candidate at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Emily Sasmor’s work focuses on power relationships. Telling narratives focusing on interpersonal relationships allows her to talk about domination on both a small and large scale. Using both tangible and intangible materials, she brings up the roles that reality and the imaginary play within them. The stories and spaces she creates are meant to leave questions. None of which are answered. By reveling in these interactions, the viewer is asked to enter into limbos, engaging with unending, repetitious power struggles.

Desi-Corean artist Benji is interested in glitch, noise, and game environments to explore concepts of identity loss, alienation, anxiety, and failure.

Kelsey Velez is an MFA candidate at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work has screened at Indie Grits in Columbia, SC, New Orleans, LA & in Athens, Greece. She is interested in marrying traditions of representation and abstraction to depict and distort ideas of recreation, diversion and sport.

Peng Zuqiang is a filmmaker and translator born in Changsha, China in 1992. His film and video works speculate and question the potential and condition of collectivism through exploring historical objects and environments. Recent exhibitions include: “De arrogantie van De jeugd” (2015) at Galerie Gabriel Rolt, Amsterdam. “Casual Contradictions” (2014) at MOCA Shijiazhuang, and “The Temporary: 01” (2014), at ARTicle Gallery, Birmingham. His has participated in screenings at Acadia Missa and Chinese Visual Festival, both in London where he completed his BA at Goldsmiths College. He is currently a candidate of MFA in Film at the School of Art Institute in Chicago.
