The Kitchen is pleased to welcome back Cinema 16 for a new program pairing experimental films with an original score written and played live by Simone and Amedeo Pace of the beloved New York-based band Blonde Redhead. The films in this program address issues of legacy, lifespan, and decay–both materially and conceptually. The films include: 

Norman McLaurenA Phantasy (1952)
Malcolm La Grice, Berlin Horse (1970)
Charles and Ray EamesPower of Ten (1977)
Naomi Uman, Removed (1999)
Liz RhodesDynamo Duo (1971)
Adam Beckett, Flesh Flows (1974)
Scott BartlettOffOn (1967)

Curated by artist Molly Surno, the Cinema 16 series was named after the New York-based, avant-garde film society of the same name founded by Amos and Marcia Vogel that existed from 1947 to 1963.

May 18, 8pm
Tickets $20

May 19, 8pm
Tickets $50 ($40 tax-deductible)
For this special evening to benefit The Kitchen, Simone and Amedeo Pace will be joined by special guest Michael Leonhart. After the screening, come celebrate onstage with cocktails and a DJ set by the Paces from their collection of classic Italo Disco.

This program is made possible with support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
