HOME BASE

The Work of Emily Eddy &
the Nightingale’s 9th Birthday!!

The Nightingale Cinema, 1084 N. Milwaukee
Saturday, April 1, 7:00 pm, $7-10

Join us as we celebrate the ninth affordable renewal of our lease with a new series presenting the work of the folks behind the Nightingale. Over the course of the next year, we will treat each programmer to a mini-retrospective as a vehicle to ask you, our community, what this place has been and should become as it nears a decade in existence.

First up is heir apparent, Emily K. Eddy.  She has been curating film, video, and new media works as Co-Director of the  Nightingale since 2013. She is also a film, video, and digital media artist in her own right. This program spans the last four years and includes outside works that heavily inform Emily’s thematic and aesthetic interests.

Emily graduated from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2013, where she received her Bachelors in Fine Arts. Combining many different forms of moving image, her work utilizes strategies of video diaries, archival practices, and experimental documentaries. Emily has shown work and programmed screenings at many venues in Chicago, as well as her hometown, Portland, OR, Reykjavik, Iceland, and various mid-western cities. Her most recent curated program, HOW TO FIGHT LIKE A GIRL will be presented at Echo Park Film Center in Los Angeles on March 24.

As always at Nightingale birthdays there will be cake, questionable punch, and dancing.

BAD ROMANCE

Screening and Performance

The Nightingale Cinema, 1084 N. Milwaukee
Friday, February 17th, 7:00 pm, $7-10

Bad Romance features video works by performers and video artists that play with well-worn conventions of portraying seduction, romantic relationships, or intimate encounters in popular culture. The artists included in this screening expose the underlying mechanics of creating these seductive, and often instructive, images and scenes. They place themselves or their loved ones in front of the camera, employ illuminating voice-overs, construct awkward revelations and propose humorous antidotes to problematic romantic tropes.

URINAL

John Greyson’s URINAL
Rescheduled
Presented by White Light Cinema

urinal-still

The Nightingale Cinema, 1084 N. Milwaukee
Friday, November 4th, 7 pm, $7-10

White Light Cinema is pleased to present Canadian filmmaker and artist John Greyson’s rarely seen 1988 classic of queer cinema, URINAL, which continues to be one of the most provocative and urgent works made during the AIDS crisis of the 1980s.

Program Details:
URINAL (1988, 100 min, Blu-Ray Projection)
Directed by John Greyson

“An assortment of deceased great gay artists from history are mysteriously brought back from the dead and summoned to a Toronto garden to be given a special assignment: to investigate the causes, history and implications of public urinal arrests in Ontario. Over the course of seven evenings, Sergei Eisenstein, Frida Kahlo, Yukio Mishima, Langston Hughes, Frances Loring and Frances Wyle are presented with data relating to a number of gay-issues, including the history of public washroom sex and its policing. Greyson’s first feature, URINAL challenges conventions, drawing on techniques from video, documentary, narrative and experimental film to create a thought-provoking examination of the history and status of gays and lesbians in contemporary society. Winner of the Teddy award at the 1989 Berlin Film Festival.” (Canadian Film Institute)

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.
