Other Cinema: ANIMAL SPIRITS/SPIRIT ANIMALS

JOHNSON’s MANATEES + JOSH HARPER + CHRIS MARKER +
Continuing our wild Animal Spirits/Spirit Animals theme from last season!!..Headlining is the world premiere of local folk-naturalist Daniel Johnson‘s lushly illustrated lecture/video on the crisis facing manatees! He also unspools precious peeks of the UCB Campanile Falcon “soap opera”, as well as his ongoing Cali Condor in-person research. ALSO in the house is the apocalyptic plea of our enlightened East Bay cine-essayist Joshua Harper, with the global debut of and personal intro to his archive-rich WAR ON EARTH…PLUS: Some time back, OC soul-sister Lynne Sachs teamed up with none Other than Chris Marker to finish their 20-min. Three Cheers for the Whale, and its delightful historical trace tonight rounds out our opening “Animal” hour. But our second half is all about humans, who inhabit animal   skins, literally and figuratively, perhaps to better understand our commonalities. Andrew Shirley‘s 30-min. Wasted Land is a revelatory but under-seen work that follows 3 furries as they mark their dystopian territory via graffitti tagsJim Trainor‘s Moschops is a faux-paleontology animation that endows invented creatures with emotional lives, and in Rainier Gels‘ Brementon Musicians, a 16mm cult clip from a children‘s matinee manages to deliver an uncannier fantasy than any mere cartoon. AND a quarter-hour excerpt of David Attenborough beautiful Baobob eco-study, Disney‘s now infamous White Wilderness, and of course some Harryhausen beasties! Come in animal costume!! $7
